We wondered around the old town of Ulm looking for a good restaurant and were delighted when we turned the corner and saw this buzzing, smart looking restaurant. We thought it would be fully booked and expensive, luckily it was neither.

The menu was full of tempting dishes and the choice of wines incredible. The sommelier was extremely friendly and helped us choose a delicious well priced local wine - sorry can't remember what it was.

The menu is not obviously Greek and we didn't realise the significance of the name Yamas (cheers) until half way through our evening.

Great service, food and ambience. A very welcome end to a long day's driving from England.

Beautiful setting, very chic interior. The quality of service and food easily make up for the price. This is no budget restaurant, but you'll experience the best of Greek cuisine

It was a happy surprise. Normally you wait for a Greek restaurant the typical Gyros - Souvlaki etc.
It was more elegant with Greek-Italian mixture of flavours. Nice dishes full of taste and good portions. Great wine selection and price-wise was normal for the region and the quality.
I would totally go again!

We wanted to try out one of the best ranked restaurants in town. The place looka very nice outside and is very often full. When entering to the restaurant the welcome was already somewhat lame, I mean it was there but didn't work. The menu was longer than expected. I ordered a dip variation as starter and sword fish with veggies and puree as main. My friend took a fish plate as starter and moussaka as main. We also asked for wine recommendations for the dishes as the wine list looked promising. Unfortunately the waiter had a little clue what would fit, and at least my wines were good but did't fit that well with the dishes. The best of the dishes was the moussaka, but the other portions were firstly too large and had little taste. The fish plate had tuna which is perhaps a bit questionable choice due to the over fishing... My sword fish was also dry and had an odd taste. I've eaten sword fish several times and it was always very nice, but now failed. The bill for two persons with wines, starters and mains was over 90 euros, which was much. My sword fish alone was 25 euros and obviously not worth the price. It is a bity as the place looks nice and has potential, but the whole experience was a disappointment and gives little reason to return.

They had limited vegetarian dishes. The tomota soup was splendid. The ambience is fine. Could not sit outside as it was chilly.Service is good.
