We visited here last night with our family of six. The service was great from start to finish. I wish I had grabbed her name. Calamari was excellent. Drink list was extensive with a nice variety. All of our dinners were so good! No shortage of feta on the Greek salads and they didn't even hesitate when we made requests... More

After a long drive from Vancouver we were able to relax with our sister in law at Yamas restaurant. First visit for us but not for her. It was great! Service was excellent and the appies, dinner and Greek beer were great. The added entertainment of belly dancing brought back happy memories. Though the dining room was large, there was... More

If you're going to order the flaming cheese, the Saganaki, make sure you tell your server you don't want it flamed if you don't want to get charge $2.50 for it. The menu doesn't give you an option of having it flamed for an additional cost and the server when she asked us if we wanted it flamed never told... More

A family dinner on our last night in Kelowna was going great until the bill came. We all enjoyed the great food and large portions. The saganaki arrived at the table in a full flame, after the server had poured liqueur over it and lit it. Kind of fun and the kids thought it was pretty cool. It was not... More

I know little about Greek cuisine, but 7 of us came here to celebrate a birthday and we had a ball. Chelsea served us and she was great. We were advised to share an appie and I am glad we did, we chose Greek Ribs, to die for, soft, succulent and yummy. Friends had one of the platters which looked... More

When in this area, pub fare we go to Tonics. For fine dining, we come here. This has been a favourite of ours for some time and continues to still be.

This was not our first choice for dinner, but being a busy Saturday night, ended up here. They had a couples platter on special, which both of us couples ordered. The platter was very full of food. Of course there was lots of rice and potatoes. The Greek salad was just okay, needed something. There was a big pile of... More

recently attended a dinner for charitable purposes - had not been for a long time. Although it was clear the dish had been pre-prepared - due to busy volume, was still nicely done - prawn souvlaki with Greek salad and rice. Salad was nice and fresh and rice and prawns were tasty. Service was pleasant. Was also nice to re-connect... More
