Lovely restaurant with a sea view.  Very friendly staff.  Good food, fantastic greek night on Sundays. Well recommended, dancing, music festivities all evening.  Loved it.

Gerakas Beach - (Beaches in Zante)

Carol R          10/10

This has to be the most beautiful beach on the island.  Gorgeous golden sand, clear water.  Sunbeds though a little expensive (8 euros) and we were told we could only stay for three hours.  This is one of the main caretta caretta preservation areas and rangers are "on duty" to give information.  Small mini market and a couple of tavernas situated on the road just before the beach.  Plenty of parking.

 Loved this restaurant, fantastic lamb kleftiko served in foil flambe'd. Best I have tasted.  Also nice to stop in for lunch,  a favourite of mine was potato skins with cheese.  Very reasonably priced.

Direct Holidays - (Tour Operators in Zante)

Carol R  (22 September 2007)        10/10

Direct holidays definitely get my vote.  Flights were early on both occasions.  On the plane the pilot constantly gave us information and pointed out places of interest during the flight.  The rep who did the transfer gave us information on the island and our rep at the Bitzaro Palace Hotel was on hand whenever needed.  She also knew the island well and could give us the information needed.  A detailed list was given to us the day before departure explaining the procedure at the airport and although I have been told some horror stories about Zante airport I must admit everything ran very smoothly, largely to the reps who kept queues organised and there were no hold ups at all.  All the reps were very friendly and helpful doing a very difficult job.  10/10
