I agree with other reviewers that this is an amazing experience. So wonderful to have a multiple course meal of traditional Greek foods just laid out in front of us. We went twice, and found that this is by far the very best eating experience we've had in several trips to Greece. And it was also amazingly cheap - only... More

After a day of trekking, we sat down at this taverna and got hit with some serious hospitality. We got two menus for a family of 4 and got more than enough food: salad, super, appel dish, a lamb dish, some roasted vegetables, fish and dessert. Plus some wine for us all for less than 30€. All delicious as well.

We knew from the reviews that there is no menu. That you have to eat what gets put on the table. And that was just a reason more to get here. And we were not disappointed. Cheerful and friendly we were welcomed and asked if we are hungry or just want a salad. The smile was big when we said... More

We thought that this was starting and that we would now have menu. But no, the pleasant and smiling mature woman, came with dish after another -... More

Great moment, thanks to the food (5 to...7 dishes, wine and fresh water included) and the warm hospitality of Vivi and her mum. No menu : "it's a surpriiiise!" We did manage to get a lighter dinner once (we went twice), so it's possible. Lots of laughs, delicious food, home cooked with fresh ingredients. The best salads we had in... More

This is some of the best food I have ever tasted. Everything is perfectly seasoned and the taste is exquisite. Not just vegetarian. Everything is freshly prepared, as much as you can eat with wine for 12 Euros (2014) - amazing. After going there one night we had to go every night of our stay in Zaros. Five consecutive nights...

This is an utterly charming family-run restaurant that focuses on simple, local, homely food. The food was good, and great value - an eight dish banquet (including wine) for 12 Euros! Definitely recommend.

Food was ok, but just ok. No menu. Some vegetables, , some meat, some chicken. Good home cooking. Fixed for 12 euro. Food was enough for two!

Very popular, not just veggie. Standard 12 euro menu plus a salads menu for even less. Run by two jolly ladies, menu board declares they are against war and tourist menus. Very mixed clentele
