We loved our food. The steak was cooked exactly how we asked for it to be, the garnishes were plated perfectly and were full of flavour. The eggplant dish was superb and was a great option as this type of dish isn't widely available at...other similar restaurants. The side of vegetables was fresh and tasty. Staff were helpful, friendly, attentive and kind. We had a fantastic time. Thanks to the restaurant staff for our great experience!More

We have come here a few times over the years Yves have been open- usually for the wonderful live music. Unfortunately there is usually a glitch with the customer service. A long wait for an order, a forgotten dish... I decided to write a review...this time because after a couple years of being open, they still haven’t gotten it right. We went to Yves today and a few things gone wrong... ordered a couple of cocktails and my wife waited just under one hour for hers. Wasn’t overly busy. After waiting 45 min for her cocktail I asked if it was still coming. They charged us but forgot to make it. This has happened to us before in the past. When we were leaving we thanked them. Then a staff person chased us down the street and said we didn’t pay. They charged us for only a portion of the food and drinks, and forgot to charge us for the rest. So we had to walk back into Yves to pay for the remainder. Love the atmosphere of this place but it’s very pricy for what you get, and after 2 years of being open they still haven’t got the customer service right. Wish this place was better because it COULD be magnificent. It just doesn’t hit the mark unfortunately.More

On a weekend away and looked for a nice place for a birthday lunch. Thinking Yves was attached to the Sebel, I assumed it would be great. We were greeted and seated, staff friendly, but then told we had to order drinks and get the...from the bar. When I queried this I was told “we’re a bistro”. Never happened at a French bistro I’ve ever been at before. Apparently you can get table service for cocktails as they don’t want people to linger at the bar. Here’s a tip, hire staff over 18 and get their RSA so you can provide some service. Duck cigars were great, but then had to ask for mains. Clam spaghetti was small serve and clams were actually raw. Sent these back. Manager apologised but offered no concession, just that we wouldn’t be charged for my meal. Oh, ok. Shared the rest of hubby’s Moroccan pizza which just tasted like chick peas. Disappointed to travel for the day to get this for a lunch experience. We paid what it was worth and left.More

Yves is a real disappointment. A French bistro that is not French at all. So much potential with one of the best locations in town but the food and service are very average. Not hard to see why it is ranked #20 of 20 on...Trip Advisor. Save your money and go to the RSL Club - you will get a better meal!More

Attached to the Sebel Hotel , convenient location in the main part of town ,so an easy walk but seemed to be plenty of parking . . Beautiful outlook right on the water . Friendly welcoming staff . Nice variety on menu ,we selected the...steak and panko chicken and both were really good with generous servings . Also ordered the garlic bread as a starter ,it’s worth a visit for that alone ,it was delicious . Would definitely go again .More

Yves Restaurant in Kiama is a real gem. Delicious french style food in a relaxed atmosphere with beautiful views of Kiama harbour. It’s enough to say c est magnifique.

Lovely staff and setting, but an off night overall. Starters came quickly, but mains took 45 mins. In the waiting time saw 3 other tables get offered food they had not orders. When a table that arrived after us had starters and mains arrive while...we waited, things didn’t look good. While reassured by the waiter that it was coming, sadly when my dish arrived my steak was over cooked and had to send it back. Apologies were sincere and money off the bill given. That said my husbands main course of salmon was perfect.More

Superb dinner at Yves the restaurant attached to Sebel Harbourside. Awesome cocktails and great atmosphere greeted us upon arrival. We ordered salt & Sezchuan pepper squid which was fresh & tender. And the Roma pizza just hit the spot. I had food envy. Table next...to us ordered oyster Kilpatrick and cauliflower poppers which judging from their reaction must hit the spot. Was advised by the friendly team they only had snack menu at the moment. Can’t wait until the full menu comes in. They did everything to perfection. We will be back !More

Yes, the menu is limited to finger food and pizza but what they do serve is outstanding. The squid was delicious, the garlic bread generous, and our prawn pizza beautiful! Add to that the picturesque setting with views across the harbour, and the very attentive...and friendly staff, and our Sunday lunch was a great experience.More
