Let me start by saying that this Restaurant stands out and was a lovely break from, Calamari,stuffed tomatoes and lamb chops. It wouldn't suit everyone cause it cooks really good and different food with lovely touches throughout the dinning experience. You are given water and bread for free and not added to the bill at the end like everyone seems to do in Zante. Added to this u are given little tasters not big but a nice touch. We had such a fantastic meal on Friday we booked again for the Sunday both were amazing. The 2 Slovakian ladies were very nice and knew about the food they were serving, not stuck up like others have commented. If you go anywhere in Zante make this place a must. But don't expect cheap Gyros type food this is something special. Wish them all the success. From Martin and my partner, the Polish young lady who spoke to you both for long periods, lovely baby boy too :)

Booked to go with 8 friends. The restaurant needed to know our choice of food before the evening. As we were 4 different groups of friends getting together for a meal this proved slightly difficult but got it sorted. When we rang through our order the afternoon of us going, we were told our reservation was cancelled as they hadn't heard from us with our order and PRESUMED we weren't going.
We were all very disappointed as they knew which hotel we were staying at and could have called. Not happy!!!

We visited this restaurant after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed, by far it was the best meal of our holiday.

The restaurant is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the main strip of bars and restaurants and so the setting is tranquil and relaxing. The two lovely ladies working front of house were friendly and attentive.

After ordering our meal we were brought a complimentary appetiser which was delicious.

Their menu offers a good choice of dishes to choose from, all described eloquently with no requirement for cheesy photographs of the food (a theme you will find at many if not most of the other local restaurants and a pet hate of ours!).

Our meal was divine, beautifully presented and cooked to perfection - clearly a very competent chef. If you are a 'foodie' eating here is A MUST. You will not be disappointed. In our opinion this restaurant should be ranked number 1.
