“The worst Gyro we've ever had.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

The cucumber sauce was very bland, the meat had no flavor, and my husband and I were both very disappointed. We've had better Gyro's at Max's Gas Station on Clark/or Stickney Point Rd.

“A simple food place with no furnishings but good gyros”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

We were shopping in a nearby mall and were hungry at noon time. We didn't want chain food if we could find a local restaurant. We spotted Zante, saw the sign advertizing gyros and had two, the standard lamb and pork and a chicken. Delicious!

“Go for the food, it is EXCELLENT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

The excellent rating of this place is strickly for the FOOD. I often have a Greek Salad with grilled chicken added. It is simply one of the BEST Greek Salads I have ever eaten...and there have been plenty. The various greens are fresh, good tomatoes, Feta is very nice, and the grilled chicken is nicely spiced. What makes this stand out is also the Pita...Soft, yet not "gooey" like most Florida breads. A Gyro is simply the best I have eaten in Florida or at anyplace. Try a few of theif desserts Hmmmm..yummy...We often go here for a "light" dinner. The cost for a salad and gyro two ice tease was about $23. Can't beat the price and value. This is FAR from "fine" dining, it is great place for lunch and light supper. Zante's is simply GOOD Food!

“ZANTE OPA!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Zante gyros is hidden in gulf gate, its hard to find but when we did find it we were glad. I chose the original Gyros sandwich, and an avgolemono soup. It was remarkable food, and for a good price! I highly recommend this place to everyone and i will defiantly be back!

“Great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We love their gyros. Zante's is one of our favorite places to get takeout around our area. We've eaten there several times since we moved to that area and haven't been disappointed once. My favorite which is the the gyros are full of flavor and the pita is always soft. Nothing worse than a crumbly pita. We will definitely be regulars.
