We found this restaurant by coincidence and did not regret at all to have our dinner there. We even came back for a second time. The hosts were great, the food extraordinary and the atmosphere outstanding. I can recommend highly to visit this greek taverna.

Spent three evenings here recently and gladly will again. Down to earth, homely athmosphere with great traditional greek food and very nice hosts. They know how to cook! Lots of veggie options.

The setting is perfect for a warm summer evening and the husband and wife team are lovely. Do not leave this island without eating... More

The meal and the whole service was the nicest among all the restaurants we visited on Zakynthos, and we are quite demanding guests :) Fully recommended for both - tastes and armosphere.

We were staying nearby and had dinner here four times - and not just because we were staying nearby! Just about everything was excellent; the place itself, the food and the service. Being able to pick your starters off a tray was such a good idea. The prices were very reasonable too. As their menu states, it's primarily a "meat... More

If you are after a rustic authentic Greek restaurant, a little out if the way but with great food and a great service, this place really should be the place to visit. The owner brought us every single starter to take a look at - a great way to choose what to eat... everything looked amazing. We had meatballs, stuffed... More
