Le Yaca began in 1964 in Courchevel, a tiny, country village in the French Alps. Daniele Bourderau & Gerard decided it would be fun to open a small restaurant. When friends learned of their plans, they told the hopeful restaurateurs they were crazy to think people would drive eight kilometers on a winding, icy road for dinner. Daniele and Gerard hesitated for three months and then decided, “yaca le faire,” a contraction of the French phrase “il n’y a qu’a le faire,” which basically means, “let’s do it.” They called the restaurant Le Yaca as a gag, but the name caught on with customers who were amused by the pun and contributed to the restaurant’s lore by inventing “yaca-isms” of their own: yaca y aller (let’s go). Daniele came to the United States and opened Le Yaca in Williamsburg. Daniel Abid bought Le Yaca in 2001. Daniel worked and trained in such prestigious places as “Le Pre Catelan” and “Lenotre” in Paris; “L’Amandier” and “Roger Verge," and to top it all off, “Alain Ducasse.”

    We eat at Le Yaca every time we are in Williamsburg and it never disappoints. Service is great and so is the food. This visit was a bit noisier than usual because of a large party. Other than that everything was outstanding

    Perfect except for one loud table of 5 women. The good news is they were definitely enjoying themselves.

    We had the most wonderful anniversary dinner. There were several other couples celebrating anniversaries and birthdays at tables near us, so we all celebrated together. The service, food and atmosphere was wonderful!

    We've been going to Le Yaca for 30 plus years -- for a very good reason. The food and the service are both exceptional in every respect!

    Le Yaca is our favorite restaurant in Williamsburg (and Virginia for that matter). The food is always well prepared and presented, served by an experienced waitstaff. So far, we have eaten here twice during this trip to Williamsburg- the first time I enjoyed a jumbo lump crab cake, and for this meal, filet mignon with a shallot port wine sauce. Portions are sensible, especially at lunch. Quality over quantity. If a dining experience is your goal, you won’t be disappointed.

    Yet another wonderful dining experience, out of many prior ones! Superb food, service, atmosphere, and of course the podium checkin (a weak spot for many a “fine dining” restaurant). My usual compliments to the Chef!!
