New patio for fifth year of service at Yiamas

Yiamas Greek Taverna has established quite a reputation for customer service and delicious food.

Located in Downtown Courtenay on 8th Street, the restaurant has broken the curse that took hold of other aspiring entrepreneurs at the venue it now calls home, preceded by three other establishments in almost as many years.

Having just reveled in their fifth year of preparing and serving authentic Greek cuisine, what better way to celebrate than by expanding their summer seating to include an additional twenty patrons on a brand new patio?

The downtown oasis is dominated by pristine white features and is accented with various shades of blue in hopes of brightening up the vintage colours of the old Arbutus hotel and restaurant.

The newly inviting set up receives copious amounts of daylight sunshine providing the perfect setting for a quick work lunch or meeting with friends. And, in the evening, the setting is shaded over to make sure that beer stays cool after a long, hard day of work or soaking up the sun.

Hristos Zmeis and his team of hardworking employees have long awaited the seasonal feature. They look forward to seeing familiar and friendly faces outside, enjoying a tasty appetizer, a glass of Greek wine, and each other’s company.
