“Abundant surprise menu”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

The first evening we wanted to eat at Vegera we arrived just before eight, and the placewas already full, so the next evening we arrived at seven, to be the first guests of the evening. There is no menu, and when I asked (I speak Greek) what we would get, the lady answered 'just wait and see, you'll get a "pikilía"', which means all sorts of different things. We first got a tasty lentil soup and a potato salad, and then all kinds of different dishes appeared on the table. When we thought we had finished after seven dishes, the lady came again, now with two plates with a big. fresh trout (they are bred locally). And then a tiramisu came up - the only non-Greek item, and then raki. It was all cooked with love, served with love - and eaten with love. And the bill? Just € 24 for two.

“Amazing”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

Farm fresh food, no freezer, no microwave. The family owns the farm that the food comes from. There is no menu - you eat what you get which is delicious, fresh and healthy.
Feels like home and the owner and her family are a delight.

“Delicious food and charming setting!”
Reviewed May 21, 2014 via mobile

We visited this place every evening of our stay in Zaros. The first day we didn't know about the system and were surprised about the variety and most of all the superb taste of all the dishes. The second day we were all day long, through our hike trough the Rouvas gorge, thinking about what great dinner was waiting for us at Vegera. The owner felt like a sweet aunt who doesn't let you leave the table unsaturated. It felt like home and it definitely created a nice memory of our stay in Zaros. Thank you Vivi!!

“No Better Place To Eat in Zaros!”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

Run by the same family who run the Hotel Keramos, Vegera has fresh food from the family farm, a happy vibe and warm atmosphere, and is a good value as well. There is no menu. For 12 euros, food starts to appear from the kitchen and just when you think you might be done, something else wonderful is delivered to your table. The 12 euro price includes dessert and a carafe of wine. The food - lamb, pork, chicken, green beans, salad, potatoes, cheese, and whatever is fresh that day is prepared expertly and the portions are ample. You will not be disappointed!
