    Beautifully authentic Greek food and such lovely, cheerful staff. We ordered yia yia’s feast so that we could try a taste of everything, and oh my gosh... from the rich dips and breads, to the crispy seafood, to the tender meats; it was just lovely. The lamb portion was my favourite as it just fell straight off the bone. We finished off with the best baklava I’ve had and an extra round of drinks by the manager who was so lively and kind. What a wonderful representation of Greece in a lovely little beachside restaurant.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here tonight. The staff were attentive and professional despite the full house and the food was delicious. The taramasalata and zucchini chips were especially good. A lovely night.

    Fantastic flavours, friendly staff. Menu full of choices. Will have to go back to try more! Great using The Fork to book. Parking a little hard to get due to esplanade Refurb.

    We absolutely love Yia Yia’s. we have come to Cairns for our honeymoon and the amazing food here is honestly what has brought us back time and time again from Sydney. We highly recommend the banquet. It is incredibly good value for money and a brilliant way to sample their delicious food.

    We ordered the banquet for two and all several courses were delectable and visually appealing. The deserts tasted Greek like we had been to Greece and back with each morsel. Service was great and staff very welcoming ????????

    Great atmosphere and location. Reservation was needed as it gets full. Food was fresh and came out promptly. Amazing view and ambience. A little pricey

    Food & drinks were great Service not so much, sat at our table for 10 minutes before having to ask for a menu when people who came in after us were given menus as soon as they sat down
