“A Reliably Superb & Quality Restaurant - DO NOT MISS!!!!”
Reviewed 16 August 2012

Locally known as "Toni Pony's" I would definitely recommend it...no visit to Great Yarmouth is complete without a meal in Toni Pony's!

Having been a regular whilst living near Great Yarmouth a few years back I visited this week to have my "usual" fix of Rib Eye Steak with Garlic King Prawns.....as ever it was absolutely excellent! Trust me I have eaten steak all around the world - Canada, South Africa, The States and many many more and these steaks are up there with the best.

Situated 100 yards from the Seafront behind The Empire building its quaint, small exterior does not give away its friendly warm and tasty interior.

Once in you're always greeted by friendly staff (and family) who always make an effort to cater for your requirements.

The menu is traditional English with a great Greek Cypriot mix.....I recommend the Prawns and Avocado for a starter.....its beautiful.

The mains are ample, of excellent quality and I like the flexibility of ordering your veg separately so you get what you want not what the restaurant decides!

The service is superb and prices are good and you will always have a great meal and experience at Columbia Taverna....Thoroughly Recommended!!!!

“Always good”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

We own 3 Norfolk Square, Great Yarmouth's only 5 Star Guest House and, when we can get out, we have used the Columbia a few times. The staff are fantastic and nothing is too much trouble, esapecially in our case, as we can never book in advance because we are so busy. Value: I think for what you get and the quality, they are too cheap. The Veal chop is to die for and so are the vegtables.
It is one of the eight restaurants we recommend and we have never had a guest who did not rave about it or say they did not enjoy it.

“5 star”
Reviewed 12 August 2012

What a great little resturant, we went as a group of sixteen for a meal. I love Greek food and they don't let you down.we had 3 courses and countless bottles of wine and beer. For which it was roughly £45 a couple. So it was an absolute bargain and a great night. Recommended.
