We ate here twice during October 22. Having walked in off the street, we found the food to be innovative and beautifully prepared. We all agreed some of the best tastes we have ever experienced. The service was personable and attentive with great advice on...wines to accompany our meal.More

So this is now our favourite restaurant of our stay in Zakynthos. The food is traditional Greek but with a modern influence. Delicious! Relaxed atmosphere and great service, attentive but not overbearing.

We were struggling to find Vegan options until we found this GEM!!! You can’t leave Zakynthos without trying this beautiful place managed with deep love by it’s owner Yiota. She made everything from the heart and you can taste it in every bit of food....Definitely the best option in the Island. And don’t worry, your carnivorous friends can join you because Yiota also has great options including fish, chicken and meat. Ahhhh don’t forget to ask for dessert.More

Wonderful innovative dinner. We had feta cheese covered with oat meal to start which was very good. I then had the shrimp with spaghetti that was amazing and great presentation. There is a lot to choose from including vegetarian/vegan dishes. The atmosphere was charming and...we sat in their outdoor courtyard. Also the service was great. Highly recommend this restaurant.More

A lovely place with great food that is a little difficult to find, unless you have directions. We used Google Maps. We'd definitely go back again.

Best place to eat in zakynthos! We were a family 2 adults with a kid having a wonderful experience there. Try ceviche if you like, you won't regret, or octopus, seasonal salad. I think everything else is great!

Good food friendly people. However, overpriced and not worth it in our opinion. 5€ for dry bread, and 3€ for some water. 24€ for pasta which to be fair was good, but around the corner we had better for 18€ last night. Good food in...general but not worth the money if you compared to other restaurants around , in zante town of the island as a whole. We were left dissapointed.More
