Jules and Shortie would love to welcome you to their idillic taverna nicely tucked away in the heart of Alykanas, Zakynthos. The serene location lends itself to a relaxing atmosphere within beautiful gardens. The Cosy specialises in traditional homecooked English food and traditional local Greek dishes, all freshly cooked from local produce. The Cosy is known for it's quality food and value for money. Steak pie, meze or just a cocktail, relax at the Cosy

Friendly and lovely atmosphere

The cosy corner is one of the most friendliest places I've been to in Zante.Proper British food and their Sunday lunches are beautiful,be sure to book as they are always busy.I would advise anyone visiting Alykanas to pay the Cosy Corner a visit you won't be dissapointed

We've been to this area of Zante twice now... And spent most mornings eating the delicious cosy corner breakfasts. Excellent value and brilliant, welcoming staff!

Nicest place by far for breakfast - would set you up for the day. Staff were brilliant and knew our orders off after the first couple of visits! Food was amazing, can't fault it. Prices were fine - it's just a lovely family run restaurant with a decent cup of tea, we were even calling Grandad Grandad! The wasps drove... More

Although we stay in Alykes most years, we don't hesitate in walking through to Alykanas for a breakfast or an amazing meal from the Cosy Corner. Always friendly towards us and never forgotten from year to year, I have only one word to say about the Cosy Corner's food. Amazing. They obviously spend their down time during the winter months...

We went here for breakfast a few times and had dinner once. The breakfast is lovely, reasonably priced, and the two guys who served were Brits who were very amusing. Dinner was great too - book ahead for evenings. If this place was in my neighbourhood I'd be going regularly!

Visited Cosy Corner yet again, we have been going there for 12 years and since it has been taken over around 6 - 7 years ago the food has gone from being good to being excellent. We dined 11 out of our 14 nights and tried virtually the whole menu between the 5 of us and couldn't fault a single... More
