I shared a delightful celebratory evening in Yialousa Greek Taverna with my lady friend a few days ago. The moussaka we shared with our aperitifs were the harbinger of the succulent and expertly seasoned meat and poultry main courses. Now we have booked our St. Valentine's day dinner at Yialousa's! Thanks to the team for the wonderful meal and cheerful... More

I always prefer family run establishments to chains and this one was no exception. We had the Quick Lunch, which at 2 courses for £9.95 is good value. The waitress was very helpful and the food freshly cooked and hot. The tables aren't too close together and the music is discreet. The restaurant has had a makeover and looks very... More

we dined here on a cold and rainy january night so the outside seating was not for us. but inside was bright, light, clean and comfortable with greek motifs on the walls and a few Grecian style statues decorating the place. We went for a set tapas menu and were more than happy with the quality and quantity of the... More

Avoid. Visited as a result of street marketing. Place was noisy and filled with smoke from cooking so couldn't see other diners at end of restaurant. Non alcoholic Drinks expensive and unannounced 'service charge of 10%' simply added to the bill. Staff disinterested, service slow, staff making up empty tables instead of serving. Food mediocre.

The hommous is excellent. They also have nice starters. I can only talk positive about Yialoussa! By the way, it never closes...opened all the year. I... More

at a fair price, I liked it a lot. I had the chicken kebab: it tasted very well and there was so much to eat that I couldnt finish... And the service is good, too.
