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

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.

We went for the larger share option for a group of 4 and we weren't disappointed. A great selection of seafood and beautiful share dishes, highly recommend.

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.

Every thing was great, food is incredible service was good! Only disappointment was the food came all at once even though I asked for it to be spaced out. So we finished in 40mins, not the relaxing dinner I had planned.

We had a great time at Yiasou George on Saturday night - we were a large group and they had big tables and plenty of room for us. The food was excellent, we weren't charged for extra wood-oven pita, and Jack who looked after us was excellent. Loved the cocktails he recommended! The whole place felt like a party with great food, and even my fussy friends loved it. We did the $55 Pits Party which was easily adjusted for vegetarians as well. Can't wait to go back, what a gem.

Loved our lunch at Yiasou and would definitely recommend it. The vibe is very relaxed and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The food is very good and even though there are a few tried and true Greek dishes on the menu, most of it is new, vibrant Greek cooking. Will go again.

The first thing to beware of is that despite the name, this is not a traditional Greek restaurant. ‘Mediterranean hipster’ would be more appropriate. That said, the food was well-prepared and delicious. Wine, service and ambience were all of high quality. Our group of four enjoyed a fine night there together.

An enjoyable dining experience however would not say this is Greek cuisine and more so European /Meditarriean .

Hi Katherine, Thanks for the feedback, and you're right, Yiasou George is influenced by several different Mediterranean regions - not just Greece. I'm glad you enjoyed the experience, however I've noticed you've rated our service, ambience and value a 3 (or below). Was there anything specific you noted, or any suggestions you have for us? We'd love to continue growing and provide all customers with a fantastic experience. Feel free to contact me on 0434812023. Thanks, Jack

Food and staff are excellent. We asked to be moved off of the stools as we 8 preferred a seat with a back. We were happily accommodated, thank you staff. We found the music gradually getting louder and we 8 found we had to continually raise our voices. Approached staff and they did adjust the tempo. We had the $55 meal and found the desert a little plain - a dripping of honey over the donut would have been nice. Overall a good experience 👏👏

Hey Judy, Thanks for the feedback and good to hear you enjoyed the experience! I've noticed you rated the ambience and value a 3/5. I understand the music volume may have influenced the ambience rating, however was there anything else that contributed to this score? Similarly, do you have any specific feedback in relation to value? We'd love to hear any suggestions you may have, so we can continue to improve the experience we provide. Thanks again, Jack

We all agreed my choice of Yiasou George for my birthday meal with three friends was an excellent one. We decided to order only meze and small plates to share. The absolute stand outs were the baba ganoush and hummus and the melt in your mouth pita bread. And also the roasted quince on haloumi. The monkfish was light but needed some salt to bring it the flavour. The only disappointment were the zucchini fritters which were burnt on the outside. We’ll go back.
