“Over 20 years of dining at Yiamas Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

We have been dining in this restaurant for over 20 years. We have always received excellent quality food and service. We were there on the night when the '40th birthday' incident took place!!! The only dampener on this evening was the behaviour of the lady in question. We witnessed the arrogant attitude of this lady towards the staff, who remained very professional at all times. We feel her comments are unfair and unjust. This is by far the best Greek restaurant in Merseyside.

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

Do not be put off by the location, Yiamas truly is a beautiful place to visit. Inside it has authentic decor and friendly, welcoming staff who make conversation out of genuine interest, not a means to an end for tips! You're treated like a special guest at a family home.
The food is traditional Greek style, fresh and exquisitely presented. We ordered the Greek platter of meats ... highly recommended if you have a big appetite! I also went for baklava and a calypso coffee, but I couldn't finish them, they certainly don't skimp on portion sizes!
The official hygiene rating is 5 out of 5. The decor does look a little old but you can tell it is clean and I think it adds to its charm. We stayed quite late (in fact we were the last couple to pay) but nobody rushed us. In fact, the first time I asked to settle the bill the waiter returned with complimentary (and really fresh and juicy) watermelon. A short while later he returned with shots of ouzo! Again, on the house. We really did feel welcome and there was no pressure to leave, we could eat and talk at our leisure. When the bill finally arrived we were also presented with jelly babies on top of the traditional mints - a nice touch I thought!
Prices are reasonable. It does get busy but it has a good atmosphere and there's still room to keep private conversations private. We will definitely be returning!

“Perfect in every way!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

I go to Yiamas on a regular basis with my boyfriend and we both love it!!

Tonight I enjoyed a fabulous meal their with my boyfriend, mother and a family friend. We had a great time.

I would describe this restaurant as; welcoming, warming and friendly.

Firstly the staff are great!!! I have been a waitress myself therefore I know how hard and demanding the job can be (especially on weekends) however no matter how busy it is the staff deliver excellent service and work very hard! They are charming and polite, just what everyone likes.

Secondly the food is cooked to perfection, it's not under cooked and it's not burnt. It's slap bang in the middle (perfect really). Presentation of the food is great.

The layout of the restaurant is lovely and cozy, and the tables are always set beautifully.

Overall this is one of the best restaurants I have ever visited and it deserves a 5 star rating!

Yiamas!!
