Sophisticated evening, excellent service

Our stay at Captain Zorbas was very pleasant. The food was very good and the service was absolutely excellent. We felt very welcome and comfortable (although the chairs were a little bit tiny compared to the high tables ;) ) The owner was really friendly and polite and greeted us always during... read more

Stopped here for lunch one day and drinks. The food was nice and did pretty much what all the restaurants do around the area. On the road through lourdas and near the supermarkets. Service ok but took a while, niced patio'd area to eat too

While staying in local apartments we visited this restaurant twice - myself, my partner our 9 month old son and my mother in law. We had heard about the place when we bumped into the owner while exploring the village and he had a lovely chat with us and invited us to visit his restaurant if the feeling took us!... More

Nothing to dislike, very relaxed in the traditional Greek way. Wonderful hosts, great wine and coffee, Souvlaki is fantastic. We were welcomed in while passing and had free coffee and ice cream.

Gave this restaurant another chance. Sorry I did. Poor quality and ended up ill. Such a shame owner can't put as much effort into food as he does in trying to get people inside.

I don't do reviews but felt I had to do one on Zorbas. And all I can say is do not under any circumstances eat at this restaurant. The food is the worst I have ever eaten in my life, 5 of us went here and we all agreed it was disgusting. I had Monterey Jack steak and it tasted... More

We visited this restaurant on the last night of our stay and I have to admit that I did regret leaving it til the last night as we would have definitely returned. The food was SUPERB and the service was excellent. It was also very competitively priced. The environment looks 'cafe style' but honestly, do not let that put you... More

Restaurant was ok. The food was basic. Most dishes come with rice and chips. The owner is incredibly friendly and made sure we had a great visit. Ok location, however opposite a bar which ruined the atmosphere due to Karoke taking place the night we stayed. Price is very good value. Worth a visit if looking for meal on budget
