For more than a decade Yiannis Taverna has treated Edmontonians and visitors to a truly unique Mediterranean experience. Yiannis Taverna offers an excellent and authentic menu at good prices for both lunch and dinner. Be certain to call for reservations, especially on the weekends, to partake in the festivities. Known for tremendous service, Yiannis Taverna easily accommodates large parties and offers catering for private in-house functions.
The Irresistible Eats
Try to resist the marinated lamb and souvlaki dishes prepared fresh from the open grill. Choriatiki, tzatziki and moussaka all grace the menu. Colourful murals, Greek trinkets and stunning photographs of Santorini and other Greek isles decorate the whitewashed walls. Hanging plants prosper overhead while traditional Mediterranean music chimes delicately to add to the charming atmosphere. Parking is available one block north and south of the restaurant.
Hey, Mr. Tambourine Man, Play a Song for Me
Tambourines accompany exciting melodies in the hands of shimmying belly dancers on Friday and Saturday nights. Smash a plate in tune to the tinkling during traditional dances or get wild when the dancers link arms with anyone and everyone in the restaurant and lead them around the tables before pouring out into the Avenue! Once you have satisfied your appetite for dancing head downstairs and enter the world of Kazbar.
Sumptuous fabrics and rich colours enhance the unique atmosphere of Kazbar, located in the basement of Yiannis Taverna. Designed in Morocco and then imported to Canada, this martini bar delights all onlookers and partygoers.
