We visited twice in July. We wanted good Greek food to try since some of the group weren't familiar with the cuisine. The owner discussed the different dishes and gave his recommendations. We each paid €12.50 for three courses and drinks! The food itself was amazing. The best stuffed tomatoes I have ever had.

Stumbled upon this place and so glad that we did. We were in a group of 4 and found this place more pleasant as whilst we were looking at the menu outside, nobody was pestering us to come in. Staff were incredibly friendly and we felt very comfortable asking what was in several of the dishes as we wanted to... More

Only popped in for a few daytime drinks towards the end of the season so it was dead. The beer was nice and cold and well priced. The biggest let down was the prehistoric dirty seatless toilets. Shame!

Spotted their 3 courses for 12.50 euros and thought we'd try it. It was ok, food was a bit bland, service mediocre after they practically grabbed us off the street unfortunately! Wouldn't go back!!!

Special deal. 3 courses and 3 drinks €12.50. The only thing you couldn't choose off the menu was fillet steak and fish. Really friendly and helpful staff. My daughter is coeliac and they were helpful to ensure she didn't choose anything with gluten in it.

I can only describe my dinner as laughable. I have visited many Greek Island and this was my second time in Zante. As it looked like it served traditional Greek food my husband & I thought we would give it a go. We went for the offer of any starter, any main, a dessert of ice cream or pancakes &... More
