The restaurant has a unique fantastic design and the setting its absolutely wonderful with the panoramic view. The food is avarage. Good quality ingredients with nice presentation on the plate but bland taste, not great. The local semi-sweet red and white wine delicious.

After a couple of cocktails at the sunset bar we wandered over to the restaurant who were busy but they got us in . They found us a table and gave us the menus which covered a wide variety of dishes . The service was...really good and the waitress was very friendly the maitre d came and said hello and the food was nice and reasonably priced . The restaurant was busy and had that feel but was efficient . Definitely on my do again list Thankyou to the maitre d and the staff for the service and making us feel at homeMore

Unfortunately, this is yet another example of a Zakinthian restaurant selling its view rather than concerning itself with the quality of its food. I had a similar experience last year at the FAROS restaurant at Keri Caves (the one with the huge flag in its...courtyard). To begin with after our rather disappointing dining experience I realised that many of the previous reviews offered on google were objective and true. The salad we ordered was missing key ingredients and - avocado and beetroot. When I pointed this out to the waitress, she claimed that the avocado could be found in the dressing - which was rather bland and tasted as if out of a jar! The linguine seafood pasta dish we ordered - which was hailed as a superb choice, was very badly prepared (the linguine was over boiled, the seafood evident with a magnifying glass as the calamari had been literally cut in slivers which closely resembled chewed fingernails, and the marinara sauce was non-existent). To add to all this the waiter was quite nonchalant about our whole experience, which was not surprising as the very same dish had been left I tact on all the tables around us where it had been served. After having received the whopper of a bill of 170 euro, I wondered whether the owners had mistaken the island of Zakynthos for Mykonos...Gordon Ramsay's "Kitchen Nightmares" would have loved to visit this place. I strongly advise driving there to take some beautiful pictures of the sunset in their front garden but PLEASE DO NOT consider eating anything. Also closely monitor your bill as I am certain that we were overcharged as the individual items ordered did not appear on the receipt - it just dubiously stated 'food or beverage'. Having visited my husband's island for 22 cosecutive years I am pained to see how such scrupulous establishments have come to exist and strongly feel the need to advise those visiting for the first time.More

What a gorgeous restaurant. Beautiful service, view and food. Must try the seafood linguini! Staff were so nice that when we couldn’t get a taxi back into Zante, they had a family member take us. Incredible evening! Highly recommend.

Amazing sunset view and atmosphere! The food was very tasty and the the rosé was excellent. I recommend the sea bass ans the carpaccio. The only disadvantage is that the orders are taking a lot of time to get ready and staff is a bit...slow.More

WOW, what an amazing place. If you are in Zante you need to visit. The staff, the view and the food is absolutely on another level. You will need to get a taxi or, like we need hired a car to get there. It’s out...of the way and the drive up and over the mountain added to the evening. I cannot rate this place any higher. You will not be disappointed if you take the time out to visit this restaurant.More

My friend was getting married in Zante so we had to find a location for a pre wedding dinner for 35 people. This restaurant was chosen for it’s beautiful views and setting. All was reserved very easily online from the uk with both meat and...veg options aswell as 3 allergy requests met, The staff were extremely helpful with any advice and Information I asked for. I’m so glad like all of the rest of the group that this restaurant was chosen. The portion sizes were plentiful and as you can imagine a large group has many different requests. The staff worked very hard and were very friendly. If I had more time I would of revisited with my boyfriend for a romantic meal. Well done to all , beautiful restaurantMore

I booked Cave Damianos Restaurant after looking at other reviews. So happy I did, if you're looking for something extra special and earn yourself brownie points this is the place to go! I booked via email the staff couldn't have been more helpful, everything was...organised for our arrival, flowers, champagne, music. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was fantastic with amazing views in a beautiful setting. Many thanks to Maria and all of the staffMore

The location, views, decor and atmosphere are perfect. Having not made a reservation we were lucky to get the last remaining table out in the terrace. Parts of our experience were lovely, whilst others were mediocre. The staff team could not have been more helpful,...friendly and professional. We were offered an amuse bouche of homemade tomato gazpacho which was flavoursome. There were a few gaps in service where I assume the kitchen got its timings in a mix. For example, there was a long wait between our individual starters being served. Serving staff improvised and brought sharing plates which was fine for us. It wasn’t until the second starter plate was delivered after some time that an apology and explanation was offered. The crispy rolls were great, and the frisssa made with local bread delicious. We were quite full after this and the long wait for the main course was a blessing in disguise. The main courses were okay, whilst tasty the finesse on presentation given in earlier courses had not been considered here. After the meal we were offered a complimentary digestif of local liquor that was very tasty. Overall a nice evening.More

I have mixed feelings. It is because we were there twice: in September and then in October, and the 2 visits had differences. Not in the location, because the view from here is spectacular. You should go there just before the sun goes down, because...you can experience a fantastic sunset. The place is nicely decorated, and the owner (or the head of the waiters) is very professional. Both times, there was quite a big crowd, so the staff was very busy, which you can understand. My problem is with the huge difference in the quality of food between the two visits. In September, everything was fabulous, we left the place with a huge smile and with nice memories. I would rate that as 5 out of 5. However, when we went back in October, the food was pretty mid-range (if not even worse). It was as if the chef had left after September, or he/she had a bad day. I can not give more then 3 ouf 5. I hope, that was only a glitch because if you have such a great view then you should catch up with it with the quality of your food. Nevertheless, I can recommend this place. This is off the beaten track but it is worth going there. Take warm clothes since the temperature can drop in the evening!More

The Cave of Damianos is a restaurant in an enormous place. Maria is a perfect manager with a splendid smile and she is very helpful for everybody. All of the personnel are very kind and eager to assist you. The menu is full of everything....What ever you want you can find it. The ribeye and the roast chicken are delicious. The prices are very good considering the place and the quality of the meal. After the dinner there are stone sofas where you can enjoy the spectacular sunset and the serving desserts. Taste the panacota.... Just amazing. Maybe the best restaurant in Zakynthos.More
