Amazing value right on harbour front with aircon!

Only found this amazing place on our last night! The best value food we found anywhere on the island during our 2 week stay.. The place was full of atmosphere and energy, noise and laughter. A wonderful way to end a great holiday. Service was a little slow, but the staff were concerned and helpful... read more

I ate a delicious paella and drunk a good house red wine. They have a good struture and good price (they have a special menu for 2 or more people including appetizer, main dish and drink in better price).

Eat here when I was with my friends in Zakynthos in July 2015, the restaurant was recommended to us by someone who said it was really good . We tried the clams and the lobster with pasta and they were very very good. The place looks really nice and authentic, the prices are in the medium range, but the service... More

The first thing you notice as you pass by this open air restaurant is the decor. The exterior railings are painted in blue along with all of the trinkets hanging from the ceiling (strands of garlic among them). The large illuminated sign bears its name boldly in Greek although the English translation is Thymalos. There is a little replica of... More

We ordered a lot of appetizers and the portions were larger than usual. The waitress who took our order failed to mention that and we ended up ordering too much food because we thought it would not be enough. For example we ordered fries but she didn't mention that the fish we ordered was served with fries. Usually in restaurants... More

You are given the impression that the staff only like locals. We had to request a menu having sat down for ten minutes whereas a local man next to us just arrived and was served straightaway. The fries arrived five minutes before anything else to then be told that the whitebait I ordered was off the menu. I chose mussels... More

nice cozy restaurant. nicely decorated. food is very good, fresh and not very expensive (we had mostly sea-food). was always packed to the full with customers (anoter sign that it is a good restaurant) so if you wish to dine in the evening, make a reservation.

The place is recommended by most people who have been in Zakynthos and it is always full, which is typically a good sign. The food, was indeed very good. The octopus with the honey recipe is very special dish and highly recommended. The fish was also tasty. The service however, has a lot of room for improvement. Not very friendly... More
