The restaurant is located in Elation-Kampi on a mountain, at the foot of a cross. The average expenditure is about 25 euro/person, main course+second+sweet+coffee+wine. 1h by car from Zante Town.

We were looking for a sunset view dinner near Kambi and we decided to eat at the Cross Tavern. It was a good decision, as we enjoyed the most delicious musaka and a the traditional desert, recommended by the waitress. The place is nice and we felt more like a family atmosphere there, where every member was bringing its own... More

If you like to drive around the island, this spot is already perfect for you. The way up is breathtaking and so is the view of this restaurant. For a beautiful/breathtaking sunset you must eat here. Staff is also very friendly and the food is good. Also really liked the funny kittens walking and playing around.

Visited this taverna during a trip with Nefis Travel. Great views as it is situated on top of high cliffs on the west of the island and the food isn't bad either!

Our hotel suggested this restaurant and we loved it. The views are beyond breathtaking! We thought the food was very good. We had the farm chicken which was delicious but if you're really hungry (as we were), the portion is small (drumstick and thigh only).

Quite far out from everywhere we decided to drive over to the tavern upon the tour reps recommendation. The setting, views and subset are glorious however the food was very bland, the service friendly yet very very slow, we had to go up to the bar to ask for menus and drinks and then three things we asked for they...

I can recommend this tavern to everyone. Very tasty cuisine, kind staff and one of the most beautiful views on the island. If you'll visit Zakynthos, don't forget come here.

We went up to this Taverna on our last day as we had previously been here just to see the view but really wanted to try out food. Why can I say as you can see by the photos the food is fantastic and very reasonable. The service is with a smile and they are very friendly. I would totally... More
