Just the Beach

Never actually ate in the restaurant, but spent many days on the beach with the amazing Vladimir... This guy is a legend!!! Remembers you from day one, will take your towel and reserve you a pair of sunbeds for the next day. He is up and down the beach all day and they do fantastic Frappes. This... read more

On holiday in Alykes? This place is a "must visit" along with Paradosiako, Anatolikos and Ponderosa. Asteria is one of the original tavernas of Alykes and is located right on the main beach parking spot. As such, it is busy all day and also runs the sunbed and beach waiter service as well (quite an experience in itself). In the... More

My wife and I visit Alikes every year and love the resort, we nearly always visit the beach area in front of the Asteria hotel and Taverna, excellent food and a dreamy place, the staff in the taverna are all great especially Jennifer but the main reason for returning to that beach is the wonderful Vladmir who looks after guests...

Great location, good service, food good,the beach service by Vladimir was excellent, this guy does not stop working all day and night.This guy deserves a pay increase, he makes sure your well looked after on the beach all day,he's quite funny as well,he then works in restaurant at night. Can't wait to go back next year.

Very disappointed after all the great reviews. Food was absolutely revolting. The after taste of stuffed tomatoes left my palette with the taste of vomit. My mum's souvlaki was cold and wasn't much better. She had had bad experience previously on another outing but had hoped it was a one off. Nope, no change. There was a full on domestic... More

One of the few restaurants with a lovely setting. Beautiful to watch the sun set. The food was a mixture of Greek and fish. Again it appears that there is a limited choice in Alykes/Alykanas of fresh fish. 99% of the fish on the menu was frozen as were some of the dishes. A bit disappointing. The Meze selection was...

I must admit that the bunny population on zakynthos suffered whilst we were there, the rabbit stiffado here is very good.

Hidden down a side street overlooking the sea the Asteria has traditional Greek food done well. House specialty is Lamb Flambé which arrives in dramatic style at the table. Really tasty food, good service and good value for money - been back twice now and will be again before leaving. If you found this review helpful please let us know... More
