Location and contact

Dennis Taverna in Lithakia Zakynthos (Zante) opened in 1976 and was one of the first tavernas to operate on the island. Since then, Dennis has retained its authentic character in combination to high standards of service. The place has over the years become a well-known family restaurant where you can enjoy dishes from the Greek traditional cuisine, all prepared with fresh ingredients from the local market or often from the family's own garden. The genuine Greek hospitality and the always friendly staff will offer you a great gastronomic experience. Don't miss to try one of the many local wine choices!

We visited 3 times and the food was good each time, though my husband reckons my moussaka is better! Nice atmosphere and friendly staff, but limited parking outside (use the side road down to agios sostis)

We have eaten food here for over 25 years. We have seen the restaurant change decor, but the food remains traditional Zakynthos "psistaria". Try the specials, they are always good. Also grilled liver, you can't get better, although one portion can be too much for...More
