Filou Cocktail Bar

Bars in Laganas

Alan S  (11 May 2006)         

We went to Laganas in summer 2000 and discovered Filou completely by accident one afternoon whilst looking for somewhere for a game of table tennis. Filou had cheep beer, fabulous surroundings & the best hosts in the world in  Linda & Savvas and of course free table tennis lol! Anyway from then we started and finished every night out in Filou and it became the best memory of that holiday. In fact I'd go so far as to say that of all the Mediterranean bars I've frequented over the years Filou has to be the pick of the bunch. Totally different, totally unique and totally brilliant. I'm not big on going back to somewhere I've been before (too many new places to see, you understand) but one day I'll go back to Zante and wander into Filou and I sincerely hope it won't have changed even a single little bit...

Brilliant 'Chill Out' place - no banging music. no crapioke - wonderful relaxing colour-changing fountain - comfortable chairs -
C O O L! Linda the perfect hostess - Savvas the best cocktail shaker ever - anywhere! Little Paradise. Place to fall down in before you head for bed.

Savvas & Linda are two of the nicest people we have met in Lagana. The bar and surrounding gardens are ideal for all ages. This is our 10th year in Lagana and all of our best times hae been at the Filou. John & Irene McWilliams.

Dennis M  (29 March 2002)         

No doubt best bar & gardens with magic water fountain. A more friendly place would be very hard to find anywhere in LaganasAll drinks Savvas the owner serves are all top brands no trash here. Great atmosphere allways. I have used this place for many years & will be back again this september

Derek S  (05 February 2002)

Michael   (08 October 2001)         

This place was really good the staff are really friendly and the gardens are fantastic. It was very quite, a great place to chill out.

Richard R  (04 September 2001)         

This is a very nice family place to go for a drink. The place is always very quiet and the gardens are superb. I would certainly reccomend this place to people of all ages.

Jackie   (25 August 2001)         

This place was absolutely brilliant to start of a lethal night, or finish off an already deadly one! I can promise you it finished me off a couple of nights and I am supposed to be a heavy-drinking student! I'd definitely recommend the 'Orleans' cocktail - with seven shots and a dash of coca-cola, you will definitely be in for a good night!

Katie D  (17 August 2001)         

Filou, we had some laughs there because my nan called the sweedish waitress a Nanna after Nanna Misquwiey (the greek singer who wore thick black glasses). The waitress sad she was from sweden and my nan said switzerland is a great place, sex on the beach.

Sher T  (12 August 2001)         

Off the beaten track this is a lovely place to spend a few hours with friends. The cocktail menu has everything of everyone and will do a lovely Kids Cocktail.

Casey   (27 July 2001)         

Low key place. Barman and waitress very friendly. Nice gardens with fountain & lights, music channel tv. Good range of cocktails & beers at good prices. Nice place to cool down off the main strip.

Roger F  (10 July 2001)         

The Filou Bar is well worth a visit. It is situated down a quiet lane off the Kalamaki Road opposite Hotlips. Savvas, the owner and Linda, the Swedish waitress will make you very welcome. They have a massive range of lethal coctails and have an happy hour from 7 - 11pm everynight (700 dr). If you've been in there most of the night, Savvas will not let you leave until you have had one of his 'special' shots on the house. If you fancy learning another language, forget Greek and ask Linda to teach you a few Swedish phrases (its much easier). Hej Linda, Hur Mar du? Jag mar bra Roger

Berti   (04 July 2001)         

Quiet. Not for the party animal. Savvas, the owner, is a nice chap. The drinks are brand names, not the crap served in some of the "cocktail" bars. Nice gardens and fountain etc. Down a track about 200m along the Kalamaki road.
