Every customer is given first rate attention and service is excellent in this unassuming little restaurant - and the food is straightforward but well prepared. We have been pleased both times that we've been here and would recommend this as a first choice for Greek food in Courtenay.

We were originally going to go to the local Thai restaurant and imagine our surprise when it was closed for holidays. Although there are many choices for dining we didn't feel like trying another new to us place. So we walked into Yiammas and asked if they had a table for 2 out of towners with no reservation.

This was my first trip to this restaurant and I was delighted. It had a short but yummy menu. It was authentic Greek food. Not for those that want a cheeseburger, or expect lots of Canadian style food. It was great atmosphere and food and a great place for the love of my life and I to dine. Lots of... More

I quite honestly never really knew that this little gem existed. A friend's birthday later, I am a fan. I have not been disappointed by a meal yet. It is not a complex menu, which I like. Appetizers are great for sharing so you can try different dishes. They have accommodated special requests without hesitation. I have seen many customers... More

My husband and I are very fond of Greek food, and we tried this restaurant on our wedding anniversary in July 2015 (43 years!) . We both ordered the roast lamb shanks and found it superb. The decor is not lavish, but very pleasant and tasteful with some touches of Greece, the staff efficient and friendly. We have been back... More

I love going to Yiama's at least one a month. The food is authentic greek and the wait staff are great with a few nice cheeky comments. They also remember what we usually drink, that is great service.
