Reviewed September 9, 2022 via mobile

I was with my boyfriend at this restaurant on Easter day in Greece in April 2022 and I dare say that after 3 years living in Greece I have never been treated so poorly in an establishment as I was in this restaurant and I...would never recommend this place. As all the restaurants were full, this one was also full, but it was starting to have free tables and so we asked if we could be served even if it took some time and an unfriendly gentleman said yes. We should have left the place in search of another one right now but we understand that maybe because they are on a busy day because of the busy day, maybe that's why the rude way of service. After almost 2 hours of waiting, we were not even served water and after getting up and asking directly inside the restaurant, the man with a very ugly face and without any sympathy came and practically threw the water on the table. When he came to take note of our order, he told us that what he still had available was 1 type of salad and potatoes. The lamb is the main and special dish for this date in Greece and it was being roasted on a grill in front of the restaurant but what was our surprise after serving ourselves with some slices of meat that were placed on top of the plate? Underneath were only the bones! The meat was removed to be served to other customers who were brought by local taxi drivers, as I could see at the tables around us, when one of the customers praised "wonderful" We helped ourselves to the "bones" of the salad and the potatoes that they were able to serve us as we were very hungry after almost 3 hours waiting for lunch. After asking for a napkin several times I had to get up myself and go get them because even though the restaurant was no longer full, no one made any point of serving us and the waiter with an ironic expression thanked me. Reading other comments, I could see that there are already complaints about this gentleman who served us and who seemed to have no aptitude for working with clients. I strongly suggest not going to this restaurant and looking for another place where you can be better served and with quality food.More

This quaint and clean little restaurant serves delicious food, and has a varied menu with vegetarian options at very reasonable prices. The service was great and we enjoyed the atmosphere. We will definitely return.

Highly recommend the moussaka, lamb and stuffed peppers and tomatoes. Their food is so homely and traditionally Greek, with a very Greek atmosphere and extremely friendly staff. A must visit when coming to Meteora!

Very good comfort food. We were here in the off season and the food was very good. We had the rib of lamb, the Greek sausage and the grilled mushrooms. This is not gourmet food, but it was very good. We left full, and had...a wonderful dinner. The house red wine was quite tasty as well. We would come back here the next time we were in Kalambaka/Meteora.More

First time in Meteora and first time at Yamas Tavern. We stopped in for lunch and it was so wonderful! The food had a home cooked feel and the waiters were so kind. We will definitely be coming back!

A pleasant surprise during our stay in Kalabaka. The quality of every single dish is amazing,not to mention the great hospitality of Lazaros! We had several starters, Saganaki, fried zucchini, tzatziki. As main courses we had moussaka,delicious meatballs and grilled meat. Everything excellent, and we...had free dessert afterwards. I would highly recommend the special Yamas salad,it comes with a signature dressing which is really unique. Lazaros gave us very useful tips to visit Meteora and is a great host. We came back on our second night for another amazing dinner! The attention and care to the customer here is outstanding, would definetely go backMore

Lazaros is a master on the grill… a trip to Kalapaka is a miss without stopping by Yamas Taverna! Lazaros (the owner) even sat down with us, had a beer, and gave us tips for Kalapaka and the rest of the trip in Greece. Not...to mention he saved the day when our friend broke is foot. We traveled all over Greece, Yamas has the best BBQ.More

Yamas was PERFECT on our trip to Meteora, the food was fast, affordable, delicious - and added bonus for a celiac with a dairy allergy - gluten free! (And can be dairy free!) Everything was homemade, he made a simple yet delicious tomato salad with...fresh tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, olive oil, lemon, and fresh spices. The fries were cut fresh and fried separately. We had grilled chicken and pork and it was simple but so fresh and satisfying!! Our server was incredible too! He was so kind, so fast, and even cut me up some fresh watermelon for dessert. We were super pleased with our meal! I wish I could take Yamas with me on the rest of my travels through Greece!!More

The menu wasn´'t very extensive but I consider this a good thing since everything we ordered was fresh and nice. The host was super friendly and attentive. The fries were firm and still had that potato-ish flavour, which I really like.
