I have been going Yiannis for a very long time because the food and atmosphere have always been top notch. If you haven't been to the new look Yiannis, I highly recommend it as one of the nicest places in the city. From the new brick walls to the stone work and fire place, the place is just a delight to spend an evening with friends and family. As for the food, I didn't think it could get any better than the old Yiannis, but I think they really did make it even better (must be the new kitchen that you can't see any more).
I was there with my son who has a big appetite. Myself, I love the variety of the greek dishes. Consequently, we ordered the Mezethes appetizer platter to share. I wasn't sure it was going to be enough for the two of us, but it was perfect in size and more importantly, absolutely delicious. It comes with Pita and 3 types of dips (fantastic flavour), calamari, spanakopita, dolmades and keftedes. It was fantastic variety and every bite a mouthwatering pleasure. Plus it was the perfect size for two people to have as a meal. To top it off, my son had the bread pudding which he loved and it took him over the top on the fill meter (it was huge!).
All in all, great food, great environment and really attentive service. You can't ask for more. If you like Greek food or are looking to try some for the first time, I would be very surprised if you didn't fall in love with Yiannis.
