Maybe the best restaurant on the Ionian Islands. Great greek food (eggplant salad, grilled prawn or with pasta, octopus with honey or grilled), generous portions, excellent prices, good service (maybe when the place is too crowded, some special orders are a little late). During the evening (starting about 6 p.m. there are few tables available). You will always find a... More

Waiters are a bit busy and sometimes ignoring you but the food is good and the prices are ok. I recommend choosing fresh fish.

This is the greatest restaurant in whole of Zante! Absolutly fabulos food and i'm not a sea food eater, but the way it was prepared and the taste it was incredible. A must are saganaki mussels and paella and the white house wine. The prices are very very low and the food extraordinary. At a price of a burger you... More

The food was very good and the atmosphere was definetely different from the other restaurants. We ordered several dishes and shared them with a friend. Food was delicious. There is a very nice view from the restaurant to the sea. The restaurant wasn't so crowded but service wasn't that good. The waiters looked a bit tired and we had to... More

Food here is amazing even if your not a fan of Seafood! Food is served in the pan it was cooked in; I had an amazing Seafood Spaghetti, really love this place and reasonable pricing too!

It is more like a Greek night club than a Greek fish tavern. More over it is much expensive. The fish it is not much special. Any way Zakinthos is not famous for the fish, fishing it is not in their tradition.

This place was packed. Big menu, focused on local fish dishes, but includes other Greek traditional dishes. Food was ok, but the music was very good (recorded, not live, rembetika mostly) and the atmosphere was lively. Easy to have fun here.
