Nothing to die for!

The decoration too dark, not like us. The service ok. The food flavors average. The skirt steak appetizer was oooversalted. The house rice was good.Large amount of food serving. It is a little pricey for a restaurant in this area. We expected something better. We would not return again

The place is just amazing. The chef visit every table, tell the recomendations, if there is something you want that is not on the menu and they have the ingredients, they will cook it for you, is unbelievable. The food is incredible. The place is really cozy, every table feels really private and enjoyable. I will come back for sure.

I went with my family on January 2, After seating Chef Tino came to our table explain all the dishes and talk to ours kids about food, he also talk about his family. They deliver an exceptional meal, including the kids plates. Taste, presentation from appetizers main course and desserts was as expected.

Although the exterior may be decieving, Yias turned out to be a delightful surprise. Excellent and exotic menu. The staff was very attentive and personable. The Chef himself greeted us and was very eager to please. The atmosphere is dark, cozy and modern. The food: outstanding! The only set back, a small parking but overall a wonderfull eating experience. I'll... More

A very dark place with a gothic atmosphere, which was nice. The food was good, but nothing impressive, and a little expensive for the kind of food served. I was expecting much more from chef Tino, so disappointed...

Don't underestimate this jewel by the exterior. We were received by Chef Tino and from the welcoming until the end it was a great experience! The ambience is very sensual and artistic. Just watching Chef Tino cooking your meal with the passion that he has, and being served by him is like being in a reality show. Don't underestimate the... More

We just had dinner at this restaurant. I have seen the place before but had never felt drawn to try it due to its odd location. It's at Road 2 but not in a pretty area. The dining room is beautifully decorated and the background music very appropriate. I got one of those internet offers and that's why I ended... More
