A lovely little greek taverna in the area of the same name. It is on the hill just outside of Tsilivi. We ate a great selection of mezes and were so full that we skipped the main course and went straight for some delicious greek deserts. Also very reasonably priced.
They bring you the starters out on a big tray and you pick the one's you want which was v. nice and quick as you can get stuck in straight away....but...... we asked for the house white wine and they brought us the most expensive bottle on the menu. (Bang went the tip!!!). Also the main courses did not live up to the standard of the starters. They don't seem to do much for children either.
Well worth the short trip away from the main resort.More your typical Greek Taverna.Set on the top road on the way to Zante town, this was one of the more authentic retaraunts that we visited. You sit out under the cover of vines, fig trees & lime trees. The best bits of the eating experience is that the waiter will bring out a BIG tray of starters (hot & cold) for you to choose from.We just chose 6 to 8 starters to make up a meze and did not have a main course at all.You can also watch the chefs preparing your food on the grill to the accompniment of lots of flames and smoke! Meal for 2 with a drink approx £12-00.You even get a liquior(?) and some semolina sweet with your bill.
A local told us about this place, a taxi ride out of town but well worth it for genuine Greek setting and food. This was probably the best meal we had in our week in Tsilivi.
It easy to get a meal for two with wine in most restaurants for less than £10. Try the house wine, it can be surprising good. Drinks are also much cheaper than in the UK especially locally produced wines and spirits.
How much is a typical meal in Tsilvi/Zante Town and are drinks expensive? Can anybody help? Kim & Chris.
