Bringing Grandma's recipes to life in central Queenstown, Yia Yia's is the world's southernmost Greek restaurant, and it's dedicated to delivering Mediterranean comfort food right to your table.

Replicating the warm, relaxed vibes of Greece and the familiar comfort of Grandma's dining table, Yia Yia's celebrates its Mediterranean origins with gusto. Dine opposite a wall-sized photo of dreamy Santorini or choose a cosy table nestled under a bower of leafy greens. Oozing that irresistible charm of endless Mediterranean nights, Yia Yia's has every diner falling head over heels.

The food menu celebrates everything there is to love about Greek food. Nothing says a lazy Greek supper like some mezze to start. Take your pick of crispy calamari, dolmades with house-made tzatziki or throw in a bit of theatre with the flaming saganaki. It's bound to raise a few eyebrows!

For mains, the delicious simplicity of the Greek souvlaki is always a welcome sight. These char-grilled skewers come with lamb, beef, chicken, prawn or veg and are served with fresh salad, fries and a healthy dollop of tzatziki. Alternatively, forks at the ready for a warming moussaka, available with lamb or veggies. Trust Grandma to see you right.
