In the midst of collegiate Claremont one finds a classic Cretan taverna hefted right into its midst, the name, Yianni's. Walk in although you have just finished a days fishing in the Aegean and set down to enjoy a classic Hellenic spread. Zeus himself would approve of an appetizer of fried pita, the house peasant red wine and the sagankie cheese flambeed in brandy, gooey in the pan, glistening in lemon juice. A simple feta and eggplant omlette, along with the egg-lemon soup, salad in delicious dressing, olives tumbling in the tang, baklava and Mavorodaphne sherry that accompany all dinners, and one has the defintion of bliss.
Pros: Classic recipes, Value for money, Ambiance
