    I set up a surprise for my friend and the staff were amazing! They greeted her with a surprise and celebrated her with everyone. They went above and beyond with taking care of us and making sure everyones needs were met. Very accommodating. And the food was delicious! Thank you!

    It’s very rare these days that you find a restaurant that not only has good food but comes with great customer service. Costa and the Girl from Ringwood :) she will know who, we’re absolutely amazing, felt like I was having a meal with friends at home. Thank you so much.

    Excellent place for a more low key but beautiful view and food sequestered from the crowds. Food was fresh and excellent. Best Greek food and wine I’ve had in Oz for months! Costa is an awesome and gracious host. Thank you!

    We had a lovely evening at Yaya’s celebrating our daughter’s birthday whilst on holiday. The food was flavoursome and authentic…we all commented that it was on point….just like how our yaya would make it. The greek bolognaise dish is a must try! The staff was attentive and Kosta the host was outstanding. An unexpected Hellenic experience in tropical Cairns! We loved it! Highly recommended.

    I was told to go to Yaya's from a work colleague. The service was outstanding especially from the manager Costa. He was friendly and professional and made sure we were looked after with our 4yr daughter. The food was fantastic and delicious with authentic Greek flavours. We had to go back a second time a couple of days later it was that good!!

    Fantastic food. Being Greek we judge Greek food and these guys were excellent. Great service, fast and with a smile. Well done. The lamb was above a 10 out of 10.

    So glad we stopped at yaya’s. The service was fantastic with delightful staff who went out of their way to cater for dietary requirements (coeliac disease). The food was delicious, reminding me of home-cooked Mediterranean meals. This is a must

    Great dining experience at Yaya's. Being of Greek background I am always a hard marker, but the food was delicious and fresh. If you want fantastic, unpretentious greek food, with great service and a lovely venue, look no further.

    The service and environment was amazing. However, the food was definitely not worth $90 per person. Set menu for NYE. The food is very basic. I probably won’t go there again.
