Zante Restaurant Still Tops

We first visited Zante many years ago, and immediately loved it. I first reviewed Zante for Trip Advisor in December 2011, where we were wonderfully served by owners Denis and Eleanor, to a beautiful, tasty meal. We've been returning ever since. We were so saddened by the passing of Eleanor... read more

Family run restaurant with a great small restaurant atmosphere. The food is great and portions provide good value as well. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a break from franchise options in this area. It's not a cutting edge culinary experience but more traditional fare and the quality is consistent which, as a local I appreciate.

I have had many opportunities to eat at Zante Restaurant in Bowmanville. The food has never disappointed and the service has always been great. They have great people working there. They do a great combination of Mediterranean food as well as other Canadian favourites. I have taken friends, family and business dignitaries there for dinner and always got raves on... More

I ate at this restaurant recently for dinner. It is very clean and has ample room. The server was friendly as well. I found the lasagna somewhat bland, lacking in spices. The portion was a half decent size, so as far as that was concerned I had no issue. However, It was a bit pricey, compared to what you would... More

My wife loves Greek food so we decided on ante as the reviews seemed modest and there really isn't too much to pick from in bowmanville. My first disappointment with zante was that despite the large open layout we were sat in the front around other guests instead of being asked where we prefer to sit and possibly having some... More

Good greek food! Crust rolls, great souvlaki, generous glasses of wine and pleasant staff. Owner is very involved. Wish they would flame the saganaki at the table.

For a small town like Bowmanville, this family owned Greek restaurant tastes like you could be on the Danforth! Tasty authentic Greek food, lovely atmosphere and friendly staff make this a must visit whether for lunch or a nice dinner/ get together. I've been going there for years and it's always been a good experience...The owners are always there, working... More

Zantes provides good, not outstanding food. The lamb is especially good as are the other Greek inspired dishes. The staff is always friendly and helpful
