Awesome views, food is amazing and service is very good! If you're staying at a nearby hotel or driving past do stop! And have a meal, mango smoothie is tasty.

The best restaurant I've been on Crete. Gorgeous view, overlooking the sea, mountains and cute Cretan villages. Very serene and cozy. Nicely decorated, owner put much thought and love into every detail. Very good food and cocktails. Try chicken in shrimp&bacon sauce, it's delicious. Would definitely return.

A lovely and quiet place to go. At the top of a hill with the best view of the sea in Agia Pelagia and a decoration related to the scenary. We went to this restaurant-cafe an afternoon when the sun was going down. We had deserts (chocolate crepes and kadaifi with ice cream) and they were delicious and in good... More

We were not so pleased with our dinner here. The restaurant looks really nice and the view is lovely. It is further from the centre, on a hill, so not as crowded as the other tavernas. This is why we couldn't understand why it took so long for our food to be prepared. While in the other restaurants we were... More

Visited in early August with family. Great value, choice, setting and staff. A must if your in the area. Under 40€ for 3 excluding drinks. Cheeky wee curry was lovely.

One evening we didn't fancy any of the 'Touristy' restaurants down on the harbour 'strip' so we took a detour from the road in to the harbour off to the left (west) and after a 2 minute drive came across this little surprise. Beautifully furnished and over looking the whole peninsula and above the quiet bay to the west of... More

We visited Yamas twice, on the first visit we began with a few cocktails watching the sun go down. We were pipped to the post (on both occasions) with the front row tables taken, but we didn't mind, we eat rather late and folk must have been arriving as early as 7pm for those seats. The decor throughout is lovely,... More

Excellent service and cocktails, very chilled atmosphere great staff. Would definitely recommend. A little off the beaten track but well worth the walk. If you're staying at the Blue Bay hotel take time to make a visit
