Had a booking made for 7.30pm on sat 4th Dec. it had been for approx 4 weeks. Arrived on time. Had to wait 10 mins to be taken to a table. The lady took us to a table she thought was no 19, however wen we got to it, table was for 4 people when our booking was for 6.
Taken to a different table & there was no cutlery, serviettes & water/glasses.
We order 4 coke zeros & wen they arrived none of the cans were cold. They were room temperature. we were given glasses with ice in them, however the ice blocks were already melting. Disappointing in the service given & time for food to be delivered.

Very bad experience, we booked a table that has a nice view, but they reserved us a table with obsructed view and they refused to change the table that has nice view. Also those tables were empty too..? Bad people to deal with.

The food was nice and plenty of it, we had the large banquet for 2 and we couldn't finish it. The food is a little expensive though for what it is and the wine is way over priced. $40 for a wine that retails for $8.

Overall a great mid week dinner location. The food tasted good but the chips and the meat could’ve been seasoned a little bit more however I know that some people like to moderate their salt intake.

The seafood platter is amazing, the lamb gyros is amazing, the pita bread, chips and tzaziki is amazing. They know what they’re doing. Never disappointed! They also made covid safe decisions well by checking vaccination certificate, all staff wore masks, it felt well ventilated. Thumbs up for safe dining!

The service when we arrived was outstanding as they were quick to welcome us and take our order however, after that we were pretty non-existent to them.

We had to wait over an hour for our food, not once did the wait staff come and check or acknowledge us to say there has been a delay or to let us know our food was still coming. We never got offered another drink or had our empty glasses taken away so they just sat there for the entire night (we would have ordered another 2-3 drinks if they asked, especially if we were waiting that long for the food!). When the food did come there was no apology or sense of acknowledgment that we had waited a longer time for our food compared to other tables.

I do want to say that food did taste great and have no complaints about what we ordered as it was really delicious however, that didn’t make up for the poor service. Me and my partner were 2mins away from walking out and choosing somewhere else to eat for the night.

I don’t want to sound too harsh but when we are paying a lot of money for a meal and have made the effort to pre-book a seating time I do expect better service and acknowledgment when dining.

Unfortunately we won’t be back anytime soon but I hope the restaurant can take this as constructive criticism and maybe work of this in the future.

2nd time we have eating there and unfortunately our most recent experience was complete opposite to our first experience. Service was non existent, chicken skewers came out raw and the Greek salad was a whole tomato cut in half with a block of feta on top. Not sure if ownership has changed hands but definitely different from previous visit.

was quite a bit too noisy for us, not the restaurant's fault - everyone was having a great time. in future we'll sit more towards the front of the restaurant (we were sitting on the balcony). We brought friends with us from interstate and they loved it (except the noise, as we couldn't have a conversation :))

The restaurant was particularly busy and very understaffed. There were only two of us and one of our meals never came before we had to leave. The food that we actually got was very good but the situation was noisy and the service chaotic.

We needed somewhere to eat after an early show at the Arts Centre, preferably on this side of the river before catching the train at Flinders St. Yassas was an ideal choice. Easy to find, with friendly staff. Service was quick and the food was great.

when dining at the restraunt people were judging us and staring at us and whispering comments to eachtother about us because we are teenagers, it made me and my partner somewhat uncomfortable, but other than that we enjoyed everything else.
