Meet the owner

When it comes to traditional Greek food and fun times, the Anast family's Yiannis Taverna has been Edmonton's go-to place since the late 80s. Current owner and cook, Jim Anast, still uses those same recipes his mother brought over from the home country, decades ago. “That’s one thing about Greek people; they keep using the same recipes,” says Jim’s wife, Tammy. “When somebody gives you a Greek cookbook, it could be 100 years old. It’s like a treasure. It’s also opposite from North American food culture, where the food is really trendy. In Greece, they learned a long time ago how to make the best use of the ingredients.”

Greek restaurants attract a clientele who love to enjoy themselves and their meals, and diners can definitely do both at Yiannis Taverna. “Most of the people who come to Greek restaurants are generally interested in the food because it’s not food you can buy in a grocery store,” says Tammy. “Proper Greek food is very labour intensive and has to be made by hand.”

This romantic restaurant on Whyte Avenue has plenty of cozy tables for date night and the basement, home to a martini bar called Kasbar, is an awesome place to host a birthday party or a large group. The food is delectable (especially the horiatiki salad) and reasonably priced. It’s also a good place to spot local celebs – I was once seated at the table next to my childhood hero. He seemed to be enjoying his meal too.
