The 4 of us went for dinner and found a very friendly restaurant, excellent waiter end super specials. 2 had the salad with chicken and 2 had the pizza special with Chorizo sausage and halumi cheese. Could not finish either of them and very tasty.

A very enjoyable meal. I stopped here because it was busy! Always a good sign. I opted for the dish of the week, sausage griller, served with polenta, aubergines, vine tomatoes. Service was prompt, the meal was extremely tasty and of a good size.

Just grabbed a quick takeaway from this place. Had a mix of pasta salads they had available that day! Delicious, easy and just what I needed. Fresh, flavorsome and different recipes each day!

Stopped here for lunch today. A busy cafe, good service. A good selection of meals - for a variety of dietary choices. The meals were generous which was great as I hadn't eaten breakfast. Service was prompt and food delicious - would definitely visit again when visiting the Mount

Was at zeytins for dinner tonight and to say that we were made to feel uncomfortable is a bit of an understatement. After I explained that I was vegan the waitress we had started being extremely rude and even making fun of it, laughing which made us both feel extremely uncomfortable. This is very unfortunate as the food was delicious,... More
