We were not so pleased with our dinner here. The restaurant looks really nice and the view is lovely. It is further from the centre, on a hill, so not as crowded as the other tavernas.

Visited in early August with family. Great value, choice, setting and staff. A must if your in the area. Under 40€ for 3 excluding drinks. Cheeky wee curry was lovely.

One evening we didn't fancy any of the 'Touristy' restaurants down on the harbour 'strip' so we took a detour from the road in to the harbour off to the left (west) and after a 2 minute drive came across this little surprise. Beautifully furnished and over looking the whole peninsula and above the quiet bay to the west of... More

We visited Yamas twice, on the first visit we began with a few cocktails watching the sun go down. We were pipped to the post (on both occasions) with the front row tables taken, but we didn't mind, we eat rather late and folk must have been arriving as early as 7pm for those seats. The decor throughout is lovely,... More

Excellent service and cocktails, very chilled atmosphere great staff. Would definitely recommend. A little off the beaten track but well worth the walk. If you're staying at the Blue Bay hotel take time to make a visit

As we are staying at the nearby all inclusive, we needed to spice up our drinks. This was perfect. Nice cocktails. Nice people. Try the julep mojito.

Had a lovely evening, with delicious food in an amazing location. Service was excellent and the waiter was friendly. The decor is bright and fresh and very relaxing. I would recommend the souvlaki if you have a big appetite. The Greek plate was delicious too if you want to sample several local specialities. I would also recommend the Enotria Rosé... More
