Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went here for St Valentine's night. Got there at 6.30pm, we left at 9pm. This restaurant was pumping. Heaps of love birds out for a glorious night. Service was slow, but extremely entertaining, I had my bottle of vino - I was fine. Food...was coming out - it was a set menu for us love birds! Worth every cent. The family did an amazing job. I got to listen to my partner. The food was cooked to perfection for us. Timing was a tad slow, but hey we are on holidays. Nice to get out and appreciate not having to cook for oneself, and enjoy these restaurants that have pulled thru. We loved it - thank you Costis xxMore

Excellent Greek food and good service. Wonderful to sit outside, dine and drink. If you go at dusk, you can watch the bats flying out of the city trees off into the jungle.

Food was delicious. Had the Greek meme menue. Fabulous. Strange we had to ask for pitta to go with dips...we were offered a thick freshly baked bread which whist lovely did not feel very Greek. However they obliged with the flatbread..perfect

Recently had a share platter with three friends. Great sample of Greek food. Good service. Not huge servings, but still enough to eat. Probably not the best Greek food I have eaten in Cairns - just my viewpoint, but that's not saying there was anything...wrong with the food here. A nice meal and worth a try if you are nearby.More

Best moussaka ever. The meat on stick was tender and delicious. The side salad was a pleasure to eat not an after thought. Service was excellent, we were also given a very nice treat by the gracious owner, a slice of orange cake, exquisitely delicious....I have never eaten such good balaclava mmmmmm wow. This restaurant may be quiet now as it is new but soon you won't be able to get a table here. Highly recommend.More

Thought we would take kid's on a cultural experience by going here. It had the elements , belly dancing , plate smashing, but found the cuisine pretty straight forward and expensive for what you got for E.G. I had 2 lamb Kebabs just lamb on...a stick small Greek salad and chips around $ 28 x that by 5 and you are into the fine dining bracket so ok but not good value for moneyMore

I think people have gotten the old Yannis that then was renamed Adelfia mixed up. Unfortunately both restaurants are now not in operation. There is no greek restaurant situated on Abbott street, its actually an Italian restaurant called Piccolos Trattoria. Yannis/Adelfia was situated on the...corner of Grafton and Aplin Street. I'd also like to point out the picture above is clearly from a restaurant in the UK, look at the phone number and the sign to the left sporting the pound sign.More

Good, but not spectacular, Greek food. Try the sardines and the chicken livers-particularly good. Not great atmosphere, but a pleasant night all round.

Not sure how Greek the food is but was a lovely meal. Be prepared to pay the price for a restaurant that is not all that fancy.

4 of us had dinner at Yanni's on a Saturday night so it was very busy. The service was still good and the food was also to a good standard. Maybe it's because I lived in Cyprus for about 5 years that I am a...bit picky when it comes to Greek food, but I thought it was a little overpriced for what you got.More

A nice and authentic Greek Taverna even down to the strange variability in the appearance and contents of the dishes compared to other Greek restaurants - I like the fact that you never get exactly the same moussaka twice when you visit different Greek places...- it makes you realise that it is genuine homestyle cooking. Tasty, friendly and authentic.More
