Arrived at lunchtime. The place was busy with very few staff. Took 30 mins to get a menu then a further 40 mins to get our food...which prove to be of mediocre quality.

Very pretty spot, lots of plants, lots of options on the menu and the food was lovely, good portions but expensive drinks, glass of house wine was €9

Such poor service it was laughable! We ordered 1 cocktail, 1 cider (as we asked the waiter what cider they had and were informed Magners) and 2 beers. About 20 minutes later we got 3 of the drinks but no cider as they said they...ran out. Instead I ordered a cocktail. After another 20 minutes I finally got the cocktail! So much waiting and not even a quick sorry about it. We actually had to check it had been ordered (turns out it wasn’t!) The first cocktail ordered (gin basil) was so sweet, we think they used lime cordial which for €12 isn’t acceptable. We had to ask THREE times for a lime we could squeeze in as it was so sweet it couldn’t be drank. It took so long to come we probably should have went to the supermarket and bought a lime instead! When it came to order food, one of our group was gluten free for medical reasons, so we double checked the sushi as sushi is actually a naturally gluten free food (rice, fish and vegetables, as long as you don’t have crab sticks or tempura) and it was confirmed that YES it was gluten free, they would leave off the sauce - perfect. 10 minutes later a different waiter comes back and says it’s not possible, couldn’t explain why, didn’t seem to care and just gave us one menu back, between 4 people. Now if you’re gluten free, do NOT come here for food unless you like salad! On the ENTIRE menu, apart from salad there is ONE option!! One! A chicken fillet! Now I didn’t actually trust the salad anyway, as apparently the filet mignon salad was gluten free, but the filet mignon by itself wasn’t? The chicken was only warm on my plate, the quinoa at the side was so cold it was straight from the fridge, and the sweet potato fries were so greasy and soggy. Just look at the picture… Our bill was €170 odd, and honestly the cocktails were not worth the €36 we spent (on 3), the chicken fillet was not worth €15, draught beers were €6 each. The other people in the group that did have sushi said it was nice, but couldn’t find anything special about it. I certainly won’t be rushing back here. How it has the reputation it does I have no idea. This was my second visit, (I always believe in second chances) and this was even worse than the first visit. A joke from start to finish.More

Stopped by for lunch with some friends when visiting Zakynthos. The food was ok, but overpriced. However this was the least friendly service I have ever had in Greece and would not return or recommend.

Very good restaurant! It is located in the city at the port. It has very special flavors for all tastes. Fantastic sweets too. Clean environment and helpful waiters.

The place looks excellent and the location is very good. The food is also very good and so are the drinks. The service however lacks the traditional Greek friendliness and is quite rushed. Overall a good experience for brunch but nothing special.

Nice food and drinks with amazing views but overpriced. Therefore, if money matters to you like it does to me, you can do without Madisons.

Restaurant is in the heart of Zakynthos town along the harbour. Restaurant looks great and has seats outside and inside. Prices of the menu are higher then average. Service is okay; same for the food.

The interior at this restaurant is very pleasant. Spacious, inviting and comfortable. It’s worth noting that if you do sit outside, you’ll be next to a busy road. The staff were excellent. At one point they had a problem in the kitchen making my order....They explained, apologised and brought me a free drink. Exactly what you want. At the end of my meal, they also offered to call me a taxi which I thought was very good of them. Onto the food: The steak tartare to start was absolutely superb - probably the best I’ve eaten anywhere. It had a poached egg rather than raw, which I found strange - but it didn’t detract from the dish at all. The rest of the food (steak and mushrooms on the side) was perfectly good, if a little under-seasoned. The price point was very reasonable for a quality meal in nice surroundings and I’d definitely come back.More

We went there twice. Once for brunch and another one for dinner. The food was great. However, the service was very very slow. For the brunch they needed one hour. For the dinner, they needed 50 minutes to bring us a salad and some bread...and 40 more minutes to bring us the main dishes. I will definitely not visit it again!More

I asked locals for recommendations for Sushi and they said 'Madison's and Manoo's. Turns out they are sister restaurants and Manoo's which is further down the street, is the focus of this review (because I cannot find Manoo's on trip advisor). Manoo's is great for...sushi, delicious food both fish and non fish/seafood. They catered well for a vegetarian with a food allergy. Amazing presentation using dry ice, incredibly friendly staff who spoke excellent English, beautiful atmosphere, non intrusive music, and very tasty cocktails. Not cheap, but definitely worth a special visit.More

Great spot for a coffee, lunch or brunch! Service was good, food very tasty. It feels a tiny bit pretentious, don't know why, can't quite put my finger on it but its a very nice place to hang out and watch the world go by....Sound system is very upmarket (QSC).More

Best restaurant we have been to in Zante, food is second to non, with excellent service to match. Friendly staff and very helpful. Lovely views from where we were sat on both occasions. I would highly recommend, my partner throughly enjoyed the white chocolate pancakes!

Awful service wouldn’t let my dog eat there. Went to the restroom and came back with them clearing my table. I’d give it 0 stars if possible.
