This restaurant is right on the harbour front & offers a brilliant lunch menu. Generous Greek salad, choice of about 10 different fish courses & a carafe of red or white wine for €7.95 a head. Very reasonable prices on the main menu too with loads of choices. Staff are friendly & the place is lovely. A real find.

We've stayed in Zante for 6 nights in Sepember 2013. We had breakfast at our hotel but every other meal we had at Thymslos. They serve the most delicous seafood from the harbour. Everything was cooked with care and attention. We recommend fried squid with garlic souce, pasta with octopus, crab salad and the red wine!

This place only does seafood, so if one of your group doesn't like like it stay away. The set menu is fantastic value - 7 euro for a salad, a main seafood dish and some wine. Very tasty!

It was our third visit to this ouzo taverna and the least enjoyable one... Having been there twice we had enjoyed great food and good times, so we decided to go again on our second visit to the island. This time unfortunately the greek salad was a smaller portion and came without capers which were added after we asked the... More

After whole day of exploring the island this restaurant was sugar in the end. We had marinated anchovies, saganaki cheese and octopus in honey for appetizer and lobster with pasta for main course. Everything was delicious. And price was really reasonable 42 euros for all that. I think this is the best place on island to eat seafood.

The best place in the town! We really loved it. Although we've visited a lot of nice places, Thymalos was the best one. Although sometimes the service was really slow, I didn't change my mind about the place. The staff was really friendly, miss them a lot=)

I found the taverna on my last day in Zakynthos and I stopped at this taverna because I saw many Greek patrons eating there and my rule is to try places where the locals go and I was proven right! I was impressed with the quality and variety of well cooked fresh food. I ordered a number of 'mezethes' and... More

I agree with a lot of these reviews in that this place is crazy busy, atmosphere was fun with strange decor, service was manic (non existent), I had to wave my food order form in the air for 5 minutes just to get some attention. Besides that we enjoyed great appetisers, calamari and haloumi with pesto, and risotto and dorada... More
