  • “What a find -lovely !”

    My husband and I made an evening trip to Zante town and came across this restaurant by chance in a little side street away from the hustle and bustle and it was heaven . The decor is so quirky a mixture of Greek and Cath kitson prints with an inside and courtyard seating area. The food was awesome very fresh and tasty -in fact we think it was the best food we had during our stay in Zante. Well worth a visit (or two) if you are in Zante town!

  • “Delicious grilled local fish ”

    Pretty restaurant. Tastefully and comfortably furnished, like a homely, arty beach house. Made to feel incredibly welcome by the owners. Even taken into the kitchen to choose which fresh fish was going to be grilled for us. Then starters were chosen for us, a lovely grilled feta and fig salad with fresh tomatoes and olive oil on bread. Then the fish arrived with potatoes. All food was perfectly seasoned, herbed, and drizzled in Greek olive oil. Healthy, tasty and special. On a side street off the marina but definitely worth finding this gem!!! Highly recommend!
