click to enlarge What can we say, The best bar in Greece. we had a great time there, it was party all the way.
Marios has to be the best barman in the world, and Akis, Yiannis, and even Stavros Flatley made it a great Time for us.
Don't think we've ever been in a bar where you are made to feel more welcome.
Thanks for a great time guys, it's true what you say, "welcome to paradise, you can never leave".
From Katrina, Andy pandy, Pete, and Nigel xx

Had the most fantastic time in Paradise (yet again!)
Really missing the place and the people!
Met loads of great people every night, some crazy! but brilliant fun!
What can I say about Yiannis??  A REAL STAR! My son was ill and he took us in his car to the doctors! You cant get better treatment than that! He is the MASTER!
Will be back again next year!

Teresa J          10/10

Paradise is by far the best cocktail bar in Tsilivi, and Yiannas is the Master! We only popped in for a cocktail, but ended up staying all night .. and the next night ...

From the moment we ordered our first cocktail, Akis, Yiannas and his family and friends made us feel welcome and part of the family. The choice of hats and antics behind the bar provide non-stop entertainment, and the music from the 70s, 80s and 90s kept us singing all night long.

The interior of the bar is fascinating to look at, lined with all sorts of history and memorabilia.

Although our bodies are back in the UK, the rest of us is still in Paradise, because you “never leave”!!

Thank you for making Paradise the highlight of our holiday!

Teresa and Michael  x x x

Hi everyone in Paradise, Thanks for such a great 2 weeks, nice to see you all again and meet new people to.

Yanis and Anna, it`s been a while but looking at the web site it would seem that nothing ever changes in PARADISE. "What time is it" - "SLAMMER TIME". Would love to come back and spend sometime with you this year. Hope all is well.

Mr B

Sorry if my comments have upset you Paul. But the whole point of this website is for people to offer their personal opinions on bars, restaurants etc, so that other visitors can read them, and get an honest flavour of what they can expect when they visit. Not everyone's opinions are going to be the same.

Judging by the many positive reviews on Paradise Bar, I know it's an extremely popular bar, which is why we visited it on our first night. However, for us, it wasn't to be our favourite, that's all.
No need for the personal insults.

Paul D          10/10

Mr Banff, what a plum you really are, Paradise is a superb place to enjoy yourself amongst friends and a selection of the finest and friendliest staff anywhere on the island, as for the Elvis tribute being a guy in a boiler suit and a rubber mask, thats the whole point you clown, it's not stars in their eyes, it's a bit of fun, a laugh, look it up in the dictionary if you are struggling to follow, i suggest you stay down the other end of the resort as the fun side of Tsilivi seems to be not quite up your street, Paradise, you can never leave, but i bet they were glad when you did, as for all the happy people, i will see you all june 26-July 11, bring it on, especially elvis. Paul in Rochdale.

Mr B          5/10

They say 'You can Never Leave'...we went there on our first night and never went back ! To be honest, it was at the other end of the resort from where we were staying, and we found better entertainment closer to home.

Waited an hour and a half to see an Elvis tribute, and then this guy appeared in a sort of Ghostbusters boiler suit, and a rubber mask you'd buy on Blackpool prom, and went on to murder some Elvis classics for about 15 minutes.
It was so bad, it was hilarious !

Julie F

Hi Yiannis and Family and All the Staff

Hope you have a good summer, sorry to have missed you but due to Fred having a stroke the day before we were due to travel out we had to cancel. Natalie has returned also as she couldnt find much work at the moment. She said she had seen you all.   We are so disappointed but perhaps we will see you in the future. You all take care and dont work too hard. Love from Julie and Fredxx   Still think you are the best bar in the world.

Liz N

We went to tsilivi for the first time last june and we love it so much, we're coming back this june/july for 2 weeks.

Hi David , The Paradise Bar is at the top end of the villiage going towards Zante town and facing the Calypso Restaurant. I think the Zante Maris is nearer the Plannos end but it's worth a visit and anyone will direct you there either by taxis, horse and trap or just take a lovely stroll right through the heart of the fantastic restaurant area of Tsilivi. We are on holiday then staying at the Plaza Pallas near Bowl-em-Over at the end of  May for two weeks and also most of the Tsilivi web site will be there as well just look out for a gang of reprobates wearing British Bulldog T-shirts with the Greek flag on the front and the Tsilivi web site on the back we will be visiting most of the bars including Two Brother's, Friends Bar, Level Bar, The Ark Bar, Sweet Revenge but most of all "The best Bar in Greece" ....The Paradise Bar      

David S

we are going to tsilivi for the 2nd time in june,not been to paradise cocktail bar 1st time round but after reading all the fantastic coments just cant wait to try it out.We are staying in the Zante Maris hotel and wondered how far we are from theParadise Cocktail Bar.

Samuel C

Where exactly is Paradise bar. It sounds like a good place and am thinking of visiting it when I'm Greece in 11 weeks time.

In reply to Tracey Brown's post (29th January) re: booking Cosmopolitam Apartments.
At the moment no other tour company has taken over since Kosmar ceased trading last September. I have heard Yiannis and Anna are trying to arrange for another tour operator to take over or go independant but as yet no news. I will keep you posted if I hear any more.
You could try ringing direct to the Paradise Bar or get in touch with Marios the waiter, he writes post's on here and he is on Facebook

Marios T          10/10

Paul D          10/10

Hi to all at Paradise, staff and guests, best bar in the world, i can't wait to see you all again in late June early July, 2 weeks of sun and Paradise, and an abundance of the pass me round cocktail, if you have not tried one then get Marios to make you one, it knocks your socks off, well 3 or 4 certainly do , it's snowing in miserable Rochdale now so i am looking at the pictures of Tsilivi to cheer myself up, see you all in the summer,  all the best, Paul and Rachel....

 Hi Everyone,

Can you please let us know how to book for August 2009 - if direct with Yiannis and Anna or if anyone else has taken over from Kosmar.  I have traulled the internet and cannot find Cosmopolitan Apartments registered with anybody, so a bit in limbo at the moment.
Our love to you all - hope to see you in 2009 - best wishes for the coming season!
Best Bar in Greece - by far

Carole B          10/10

The only tour operator for the Cosmopolitan Apartments / Paradise Bar was Kosmar who went into liqidation last September. Up to date no other company has taken the apartments over.  I did hear the owner's Yiannis and Anna are considering arranging direct booking. I'm sure if they did many repeat holiday maker's would book with them, like us, as you can't beat "The Paradise Bar" bar in Greece.
Yammas see you all in June  

Rob F          10/10
