“Improved Menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2011

Yamas is fantastic. Had a change of menu since last year so as well as doing the Gyros they are also cooking beautiful fish & meat dishes. Staff are amazing. Perfect place to chill out at lunchtime after a hot morning sunbathing but also now because of the extensive menu, a very good restaurant for dinner. I much prefer the restaurants at this quiet end of Kamari as not only is the food very good, the restaurants are more spacious and comfortable to spend time in. Baklave was to die for. Will be back!!!!

“So cute so clean!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2011

This is just like an old fashioned traditional taverna, all blue & white, freshened up! You can see the kitchen where they are preparing the food. Super clean. The setting is lovely, right on the beach and there is an olive tree - rare in Kamari - right in the restaurant. This is the quiet end of Kamari where you can hear the waves run up the beach not just the muzak from the shops and tavernas. They have the faves like Gyros and Souvlaki that are delicious all over Greece but here you get to enjoy them in pretty surroundings. Mostly Gyros and Souvlaki places are take away or have grim decor. They have other main courses if you don't feel like gyros or souvlaki as well as appetizers and salads. The staff is kind and really nice to children. The restaurant is outdoor but there is a sheltered area for cooler days or evenings near the kitchen. In the summer I would try to go early to be sure to get a beach table. There is shade so it is good for lunch too and they would probably even deliver to your beach bed if you are too lazy to go to the table! This is a cheap place to eat. Pita with meat and trimmings is only 2.50 euros. Mains around 8 euros. Don't miss the homemade baklava! The lady that makes it used to own a bakery.

Really good experience. Quick , polite and professional service.
Cheapest prices, delicious meals.
Pity that we discovered this restaurant only the last day of staying in Kamari.

“Best value and quality in Kamari”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2010

Recently spent a week in Santorini - we discovered Ya mas on our 3rd night and were so impressed went back again on our last night. The first evening they advertised lamb shanks for 2, a large greek salad and a 500ml carafe of house wine for 18 Euros. Everything about the meal was great, friendly waiters, good service and good atmosphere.
The second time we went they advertised roast lamb for 2, greek salad and wine for 16 Euros. Again the service was good, food was just right and would definitely return.

The resturant is situated at the northern end (away from the mountain) of the Kamari beach front and is worth looking out for.

“Great location, new, lowest prices on the strip.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2010

I only had a Greek Salad and a beer but I really like the place. The prices were the lowest i've seen, even the beer, and the menu looks very good. I will be back there Sept. and will make it one of my main stops.
