Mediterranean
Broadsheet's Melbourne’s Best New Restaurants of 2023
Featured in The Age Good Food Guide for 2023

A neighbourhood corner spot in Brunswick East serving wood fire pide, sharing style dishes and wine.

Our head chef Cagri Ergin, born and raised Istanbul native with a passion for cooking and a love for the flavours of the Mediterranean and Anatolian regions. A degree in Gastronomy and Culinary Arts, Cagri has honed his skills in the kitchen and gained a deep understanding of the diverse cuisines that define their home region.

Our small and ever changing wine list is influenced by the season. reds take the spotlight when it's chilly, while whites shine in the summertime. Sourced from all different parts of the world.

Sometimes we pop open a bottle for the day, available by the glass. Absent from the printed menu so if curious ask your waiter.

If you like wood fired food, great wine and candle lit spaces, book a table with us.

    Everything was perfect, the food was delicious and the staff was very friendly. We went for a business meeting and everyone liked Yakamoz very much. We will definitely come again and try other dishes.

    Everything we had was fantastic, the waiters were all super friendly, will definitely be back. My favorite was the Kingfish Crudo. The best way to eat here would be sharing everything because there is a lot of good stuff.

    Service was very average. Waitress didn’t know much about the food when we asked what were the favourites. Overall food was nice but the service really brought the place down.

    Hi, Thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed the food but apologise for the service. We had a new staff member on the night. We're working on training to ensure better experiences. Your feedback is valuable, and we hope to welcome you back soon for an improved visit. Best regards, Kevin

    Had been wanting to try Yakamoz for quite a while and so glad we did. The food was all really really good and great service too. We had the octopus, whole fish, green beans, mince pide, goats cheese and rocket salad and some delicious complimentary bread cooked in the wood fired oven. I can recommend everything we had. I’m not affiliated at all but rate this restaurant higher than many others in this strip. I’m so glad we visited and appreciate the high quality meal we had. Will definitely visit again
