A lively Mediterranean inspired restaurant in Adelaide's East End. Funky tunes, wood fired eats and plenty of booze to accompany the good times!

Fabulous food and service. The wood oven pita and the barramundi in particular are favourites.

Exceptional food! The shared meze is a great option if dining in a group, very generous portions. Friendly staff and a fun wine list

As we had a large group of 11 we had the 'Pita Party'. Plenty of delicious food. Highlights were the amazing salads, lamb shoulder, cauliflower and the pita bread was divine! Staff were lovely and very accommodating. A fun vibe to celebrate my birthday in... I also received a 'Happy Birthday' plate of chocolate truffles. We will definitely be back!

Going with friends to Yiasou George with friends I wasn't sure what to expect but to our delight the food was absolutely wonderful. All the plates we selected were full of wonderful textures and flavours . We ordered mostly vegetarian options and loved every one of them. The wine was good and the staff were attentive and full of good advice. We were surprised at the end how affordable it all was. Now for the down part. The music was loud, aggressive (heavy bass) and really inhibited our conversation. While the ambience was good when we arrived we became irritated by the volume of 'background' music. Turn down the volume and it will be perfect.

I love Yiasou George! 4th time dining here and it never fails to disappoint- the food (particularly the pita and lamb) is to die for and staff are always so warm and kind. I already recommend to everyone I know!

Great service, fantastic Mediterranean style food without being heavy. Fresh, flavoursome combinations using local produce. Great portion sizes for sharing a variety of dishes. Fantastic cocktails and wine/ drink options. Friendly helpful service in relaxed atmosphere. Hard to believe Brussel sprouts could taste that good! Highly recommended.

Unable to fault the food! Every dish was delicious and unique in its own way. Service was great- relaxed, friendly and helpful staff. Noise level was a bit high but staff were obliging and turned the music down, although noise was mainly in the environment due to other patrons. Definitely recommended and will go back!

We were expecting a Greek restaurant from the name. The waitress explained it was more Meditaerraneun than Greek. We weren't disappointed. We had a delicious meal, great service, although a bit noisy.

Another fabulous visit!
The food was so delicious, but what was particularly good was how healthy the food was! How can something that tastes so yum be good for you?! It is proof that it CAN be done, with all the beautiful Greek Gerda and spices! Another great point about our visit was the gorgeous Isabelle! So friendly and helpful, making us feel so comfortable and welcome! Another visit very soon!

The food was fantastic and full of flavour. This has been our second visit in two weeks so really enjoyed the tastes. The diffferent flavours and sauces are really tasty. The ambiance is really welcoming. Will definitely recommend this restaurant to friends.

When I go out to dinner it is important that all my senses are satisfied. My experience at Yiasou George was very disappointing because the noise level was so high that any attempt to converse with our friends was virtually impossible without shouting. Even the waiter had to bend right down to speak in our ears so we could hear him and he could hear us.I asked if the music could be turned down just a little and the reply was that the manager would not be not receptive to that request. As the room filled it became worse. It was so disappointing that we left after a short time. This was such a pity as the food was delicious.

It's a nice venue with a soothing ambiance and the staff and waitresses were very friendly and efficient. Unfortunately, the menu and food selection is where this venue falls short. Ultimately, the food comes off as pub food but at restaurant prices. The Greek salad was very basic, the pita bread just tasted like toast, and there was no real "Greek feel" with any of the main dishes. Disappointing.

The food was fantastic full of different flavours and tastes. The presentation was amazing. The haloumi is definite item to order as well as the slow cooked lamb. I would definitely recommend it to everyone including families and couples. I think we have found our Greek restaurant.

We visited on a busy Saturday night. Food and service were excellent. Wine list was also very good but I would like to see more options for glasses of wine - there were only 2 reds and 2 whites.
Interior design was lovely but it was incredibly noisy so something to be aware of.

The food is really good - interesting, tasty and balanced; servings are generous, and well proportioned for sharing. It's fairly busy (and quite noisy) so the service at times was a bit variable, however the kitchen did deliver all plates in the the requested order and times - so great work out back. Wine list is quite long and whilst interesting, suffers from being too adventurous with many unknown small producer brands - an unlucky choice could see an unfinished and spoiled wine, purported as 'natural', in your glass. Corkage at $20 is about the benchmark for this quality of restaurant. Overall, good - but with a few tweaks and effort could be a real stayer on a site that has a chequered past record.

Hey, Thanks so much for your review with some honest feedback! The wine list is aimed to showcase the best that Australia has to offer, and whilst we do focus on some of the younger, independent winemakers, we ensure all wines are tasted to ensure they are of high quality, with no faults. Although there are some adventurous wines, we do try to ensure there's something for everyone - just chat to our knowledgable staff for recommendations. Hopefully we see you back again :) Cheers, YG

Food, and wine list, are wholesome, honest and refreshing. Food service speed needs to be slowed down expontially, however, as starters, mezze and mains were all served within 10 minutes of each other. Overall a great experience though.
