“Great food, service and value for money.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Went with our three children (14, 13 & 9) and loved it. The waiter was friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. The food portions were huge. W had two courses each and left the restaurant feeling like we were going to burst! The children's portions are also large.

Please be aware that they don't accept MasterCard or visa. Only a German bank card and cash. We didn't realise this until the end if the meal. They were very good about it and allowed myself and the kids to wait while my husband got cash and brought it back to them.

The meal was fantastic value for money and the atmosphere was lovely. Seems to be very popular though so either book or go early (5pm ish) to avoid disappointment.

“Rather ordinary Greek ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2012

Interior in wood and earthly colors on the walls. 
After ordering you quickly get a some toasted garlic bread as a free appetizer, along with an Ouzo next to whatever drinks you ordered. 
There's not really much for vegetarians on the rather stereotype menu. 
I ordered a Lamb souvlaki with "French" fries. I was not very impressed by it. The chef is very generous with the dressing on the salad. I've been to Belgium so I know how fries are supposed to taste, and the ones at Taverna Yiamas was a very cheap ready made frozen version. The meat however was both very tender and tasteful. Very regular pieces of good quality. This really saved the meal. 
But then again - prices here are really cheap. 10-15€ for a main course. 
The head waiter is very friendly and seems more interested in the business than the other employees.
