Honest Cooking

Welcome to The Columbia "Toni-Ponis Taverna", a family-run restaurant that offers a unique dining experience in the heart of Great Yarmouth just behind the Golden Mile. For over 40 years, we have been serving mouth-watering dishes, including steaks cooked to perfection on our open charcoal fire grill, fresh seafood, and authentic Greek specialties.

At The Columbia, we take pride in our commitment to quality ingredients and traditional cooking techniques, evident in every dish we serve. Whether you're in the mood for a perfectly cooked ribeye, a tender fillet, or a succulent piece of halibut, our experienced chefs will prepare it with care and precision. We also offer a "Meze" which is an authentic Greek dining experience - perfect for sharing and offers a variety of small plates that showcase the best of Mediterranean cuisine and includes a selection of our most popular Greek dishes. 

For those looking to explore the flavors of Greece and Cyprus, our menu offers a variety of classic dishes such as moussaka, kleftiko, pork afelia, beef stiffado and succulent kebabs. We also offer a range of vegetarian options for those who prefer meat-free dishes. 

At The Columbia, we believe that dining is not just about the food, but also the experience. That's why we take pride in our warm and welcoming atmosphere, where families and friends can gather to enjoy good food and great company. As a family-run business, we understand the importance of creating a welcoming environment where everyone feels at home. We are committed to providing our guests with exceptional service and a dining experience that is second to none.
