What a wonderful time we had at this restaurant. We had the sushi menu and it was delicious. You don’t need soy sauce with these sushi creative creations. We also like the wine choices. We will definitely be back to try again when we are...in Davos. The ambience & staff are also great! It’s worth the short bus ride or care ride from Davos. We wish you great success!More

Now, unless you live or stay in Davos Frauenkirch, the Yama Restaurant will be a bit "away" for you. But we're going to show with this review how that should not be a problem and how it is worth the invested travel time. The Yama...Restaurant is following the nowadays trendy idea of "fusion" cuisine. The talented chef is well-versed in a number of different gastronomical styles and is not shy from using that experience to create fantastic fusion and classic dishes. Before going more into the food/service/decoration itself though, let us share one more interesting story which is not evident before going here. The owners of the restaurant are Mario and Moni, who both work there too, putting their hearts and passion into it. Mario is the chef, who we mentioned just above and Moni works as a waitress. We personally love restaurants where the owners are so committed to make their passion work out in reality. And they do it mighty profesionally too. Kudos! The decoration of the place is what one would expect from a hotel restaurant / old post building. You could say it is how classically these kinds of places look like, with a nice bar, neat tables and elegant table decorations. Nothing to complain about, simply classy. The service was very good, with rather attentive and friendly staff. To add a plus point, the staff was also quite diverse from a nationality & style perspective. When ordering and talking with them, we were able to have various short & friendly conversations that added to the experience. And that is not even mentioning Moni herself, who - as mentioned above - is also waitressing. She definitely could share a few interesting stories! As for the food, please forgive the bad wordplay, it was yama-yummy. We enjoyed all the various different dishes we ate, including the amuse-bouche, the sushi "starter" and the duck main course. Whilst the duck was prepared beautifully tender and delicious with exciting "sides", our vote would actually go for the various sushis we tried (rolls and nigiri). They were creative, harmonious and tasted very fresh, which is especially surprising considering the location. Having had the pleasure and luxury to have sushi quite a few times in our lives, it really needs to be said that it was among the top ones we had. Now, after all this writing, we again hunger for more, but, unfortunately, we are no longer near Davos Frauenkirch :( As for you, dear reader, we hope you are and can then take the trip to eat a delicious meal at Yama Restaurant.More

We were looking for a restaurant as everything was already closed. Sushi and Burger are absolutely perfect - best ever. The service and atmosphere are excellent - we can only recommend to try it. I never had such a special and perfect dessert. It is...even possible to walk there from Davos or take the train or bus.More

Yama is hands down one of my all-time favorite restaurants. The food is sublime, service is impeccable, and the proprietors clearly thrill at creating a warm environment and delectable food. It won’t be long before this restaurant earns a well-deserved Michelin rating.More
