“My opinion is avoid”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012 via mobile

Had been wanting to try this place for a while due to the great reviews so decided to venture there in September. What can I say? Lady who greeted us was quite abrupt. Food was Ok but nothing special. Only two veggie options which wouldn't have been a problem had they not had parmesan cheese sprinkled all over them which is not a veggie cheese and was not mentioned on the menu. Also the service was very slow. In fact a table of customers came in who seemed very friendly with the owners whilst we were having our starters and they got their starters and mains before our main course arrived. This delay made us very late for meeting friends. All in all a very disappointing experience

“Amazing Food, Amazing Wedding Reception!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

In June this year we got married in Zante and stayed in Tsilivi. We had booked our wedding through Tsilivi Travel and had asked for recommendations for a small authentic greek restaurant for our Meze Wedding reception. Valentinas Castle was chosen as the family owners had agreed to close the restaurant for our party and cater to alll our needs. The food was absolutely amazing. We visited for a pre wedding meal the night we arrived in Zante and could not have been more impressed by the Chicken Souvlaki. During the wedding reception the food did not stop being cooked, it got to one point in the evening and i looked over at the guests who appeared to be completely full yet i had to tell them "these are still the starters!!". I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone, we even had our last meal there (you must try the swordfish souvlaki) i would definitely eat there alot next time we visit!!!

“A little hidden gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

Amazing food, brilliant service! We visited this restaurant after reading reviews on tripadvisor and had a great experience. The first night we visited we enjoyed the freshly cooked food on offer and enjoyed every mouthful, they unfortunately were all out of the rabbit stifardo...however they asked when we would visit again and promised they would have it available for us, true to their word the next time we visited we were greeted at the entrance with big smiles and to be told the rabbit had been prepared. Another first class meal was enjoyed. Highly recommended! Thank you to Costas and his family from all the Nicoli's

“Real Greece... Amazing food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

We have been to tsivili 3 times mainly as we have friends there ...we found this restaurant on our first visit, what can I say...
I used to live on the Greek islands so I know about real home cooked Greek food and a friendly warm taverna .
The waiter costa remembered us , it is amazing food, home cooked, gorgeous setting and the rose wine a must , I think in all we must have eaten there about 8 times and have enjoyed it every time , the chicken souvlaki is just the best .
I wish I was there now, definitely has to be the best restaurant in tsivili ... Gorgeous x
