The major issue seems to be the owners wife who apart from talking to customers looking at the menu spends the rest of her time sat at a table smoking.the guys who runs a the restaurant is nice ,friendly and efficient but does all the taking orders,serving the food and giving you the bill,even when very busy she seems to do little to help thus meaning that service can be slow.with a lovely situation on the edge of the sea it should be busier than it is. The food is good with. A varied menu we had grilled prawns and they were excellent.

My friend and I were caught in torrential downpour and were starving so her cousin suggested this place for lunch.

My friend is vegetarian so we were hoping that they had her favourite dishes prepared because sometimes the dishes take hours to cook and aren’t available until dinner time.

Everything we wanted was available and delicious! The service here is amazing-we felt so bad that they had to run back and forth to their outdoor beachfront tables to bring our food out but they kept doing it with a smile!

We had horta, giant beans and a vegetarian pasta they made special for us. Everything was hot and so tasty!

I would definitely return to Yialo Yialo again!

Late on in our stay decided to try this place for lunch, it being the third closest to our hotel, and us being lazy! A very friendly and knowledgeable waitress, and an excellent light lunch. All fresh, and with good views of Finikounta seafront and harbour. We wish we had chosen to eat here some evenings as well, not finding the other two closer tavernas quite up to scratch all of the time. Should we return to Finikounta we will be regular patrons of this taverna.

This is the best food in Finikounda. This is our second year in Finikounda and everything we have had has been freshly cooked and very tasty. Because it is all fresh you don't always get the full choice offered on the menu but we prefer less choice of freshly cooked food rather than frozen/ warmed up rubbish. Joanna is just lovely and gives excellent advice - especially when she gets to know what you like. We had lunch 6 days and 3 evening meals here - we felt we ought to try other restaurants but none were as good. This will certainly be our no.1 choice when we return to Finikounda.
