Laid back family run taverna and very good food. We went there twice and really enjoyed it. Home made bread with tomatoes served to all guests, simply delicious! Good fish dishes, we loved fried squids and sardines. Hot showers and toilets which are a bonus....More

We were looking for a quiet place protected from these days' wind and we ended up in Dafni Beach. Beautiful spot, warm sea, and in the tavern very nice people and good local food. Ask for advice on daily available fish and trust the owner!

The food was good, but not great, expensive and I had been waiting for more than an hour and half. The taverna has an very old style and the sea could be seen from it.

We were on the Island visiting friends that now live here. If we weren't we probably would not have ever have made it down to this beach and this Taverna. Because both the two roads down are unmade tracks with many twists and turns down...More

This restaurant was our best meal choice during our stay in Zakynthos. It is located on Dafni Beach and is cozy and rustic, just how I imagine a seaside restaurant to be. The stuffed squid was excellent and also the salads were delicious. The bread...More
