If you like greek food you need to visit this place. Great menus. Nice servers. Good deals with specials. Greek wine is also available. The food is hot when it comes to your table. Servers are knowledgeable about the menu. Very helpful. Good hours too. We like to eat early and take our time. Been here a few times now.... More

Always impressed with the food here. The roast lamb shoulder is excellent and an enormous serving - enough for two people. Very convenient location in downtown Kelowna. If you like authentic Greek food, this is the place.

Nicely decorated new-looking Greek restaurant in downtown Kelowna. Prices are good. Lots of variety on the menu, and everything we ordered was great. To top everything off, a heavenly baklava !

We visited here last night with our family of six. The service was great from start to finish. I wish I had grabbed her name. Calamari was excellent. Drink list was extensive with a nice variety. All of our dinners were so good! No shortage of feta on the Greek salads and they didn't even hesitate when we made requests... More

After a long drive from Vancouver we were able to relax with our sister in law at Yamas restaurant. First visit for us but not for her. It was great! Service was excellent and the appies, dinner and Greek beer were great. The added entertainment of belly dancing brought back happy memories. Though the dining room was large, there was... More
