After strolling up the beachside one evening and finding many of the restaurants to be rather expensive, we turned back around and walked back towards the strip (we had been trying to avoid it). Gianni's was the first restaurant we found to have live musicians playing in the restaurant and fair prices. Service was mediocre, indifferent but not rude, until... More

We had a a light lunch at the beach, mainly pitas, salads and drinks. Food was blunt and less tasting than we been used to in other places in Zakinthos. A bit pushy personnel.

I can't comment the food as we had only local wine and enjoyed the atmosphere and live Greek music - it was very pleasant evening and I'd recommend to visit this place!

I had the grilled octopus twice and it was very good and tender. I'm giving it 4 stars because the french fries are fronzen. My husband had the gyros and it was good but a bit fatty, and the lamb chops which were very good and tender.

Food was OK for the price that we paid. In fact we paid double for a gyros in another place and it wasn't as good as the one from Giannis. We came back to Giannis after eating in the other place.

We spent a week in Laganas . We stayed in the hotel next to the restaurant. Almost every night we ate at Gianni. The staff was the friendliest i ever met. The food was always fresh and tasty. We really enjoyed. Thanks.:))

After waiting for over 40 minutes for a grilled octopus, we got a frozen appetizer. Totally inedible. Meanwhile beer turned into hot tea. After another 30 minutes we got so-called "seafood spaghetti" and "fresh fried sardines". Pasta was actually made up of overcooked pasta (I am Italian so I have quite a good idea how to cook pasta), frozen muscles... More

the food was ok, not the best but not the worst i have had. But this was made up for the free entertainment, Greek music, dancing and getting the customer involved. Great night, great atmosphere.
