Thomson now TUI - (Tour Operators in Zante)

Dawn S           

Didnt even get outta UK due to a change in airport, with the company not willing to compensate in any way.  Would NEVER book with Thomson again.

Double - (Restaurants in Argassi)

Dawn S

My partner and I will be in Argassi for our first visit to Zante in May this year( can't wait very excited already!!)

We will be making up our own minds on Peters restuarant and would urge other people to do the same - you dont know if you dont try!!!

And if your like me and read reviews on everything before trying u'll know that you always get mixed reviews no matter what your looking into.

Erato - (Restaurants in Argassi)

Dawn S          10/10

We ate here twice during our two week stay (tried to use somewhere different everynight and went back to our fav three at the end of the holiday).

The food and service was excellent and the meatballs here are mmmmmmm.

Athina - (Restaurants in Argassi)

Dawn S          6/10

we ate here once in the middle of our stay.

after the reveiws I was expecting a great meal but was a little disappointed to be honest.  Just didnt have the wow!

Stars Restaurant - (Restaurants in Argassi)

Dawn S          10/10

This definitely is one of the best restuarants in argassi.  But there is lots of choice so dont find one place and eat there your whole hols.

Ate here twice as it was one of our favs.

Just wish they did home delivery!!!!!

Timotheos Studios - (Accommodation in Argassi)

Dawn S          10/10

First time in zante!

This is the place to stay if your looking at argassi.

Well situated in easy walking distant of everything and the rooms are kept very clean adn any probs you have dealt with asap.

All the staff here were very friendly and Im already looking at prices for next season (only landed back 27 may!!)

Island Tour by Coach - (Zante Excursions)

Dawn S          9/10

This was the only trip we did and its well worth it to see a bit of the island.

Tho as previously mentioned if not taking sandwiches take plenty of cash as the places you stop for lunch are in the middle of nowhere and are that wee bit more expensive but the food is good.

Another thing to mention is that the boat trip to the blue caves is optional but does cost an extra 7euros per person.  The alternatives if you dont do the boat part is to go to the beach - which is nice and there are a few cafes and ice cream places etc.  But is you've not seen the blue caves before defintiely go they are an amazing sight.

Mouse House - (Other Things in Argassi)

Dawn S  (29 May 2007)        10/10

we used the mouse house a few times both for internet access and a relaxing drink.

having used internet access elsewhere in argassi i must say that the mouse house is by far the quick and cheapest.

oh and the strawberry slush puppies are great

Argassi Resort - (Resorts in Zante)

Dawn S          10/10

First time in zante and absolutley loved argassi.  Theres a bit of everything for all ages but is meant to be geared towards couples and families.

We will definitely be back and can see what people say about them being home whne they get there.  This is the first place Ive felt safe enough to walk around on my own without my partner, so if your a single person you'll be fine here.

Having seen a bit of a few of the other resorts on the island - yes they are worth a visit but I wouldnt stay anywhere else but argassi.

Afrodite - (Restaurants in Argassi)

Dawn S  (29 May 2007)        9/10

Ate here once my partner got the greek meze for one and said it was amazing.

Definitely worth a visit and doesnt deserve the rating it has here is much better than that.

Edem - (Restaurants in Argassi)

Dawn S          2/10

we were not impressed with this place - went here as it was recommended by people staying in our apartments and def wouldnt be a return visit for us - very disappointing.

Ilision - (Restaurants in Argassi)

Dawn S

Was closed while we were in argassi so cant rate it but was disappointed we didnt get to try it.  ( we were there btwn 13 may and 27 may so am not sure if its opening at all this season)

Zorbas - (Restaurants in Argassi)

Dawn S          10/10

Great food here.

You must try the beef athina but be warned dont bother with a starter as yoiu wont need it!!!

Manos Holidays - (Tour Operators in Zante)

Dawn S  (29 May 2007)        8/10

No probs really and would def book with them again

24-7 - (Restaurants in Argassi)

Dawn S          9/10

We ate breakfast here once in our fortnight (altho didnt go out much for breakfast)

Food was good and the service impeccable.

Give it try you wont be sorry.

Poseidon (old) - (Restaurants in Argassi)

Dawn S  (31 May 2007)        6/10

Food was ok and serrvice was fine but wouldnt say it was anything to write home about.

Three Brothers - (Restaurants in Argassi)

Dawn S          8/10

We ate here once and the food was fine no complaints but there are definitely better restaurants in argassi but if you like seafood you must try this place at least once.

Zeus - (Restaurants in Argassi)

Dawn S  (31 May 2007)        7/10

Almost every restaurant has a vegetarian section in their menu altho some only consist of a few options.  Heres a hint tho - go looking at menus in the daytime then you wont be bothered with the PRs trying to get you into their place.

There are lots of places worth trying too.

Also we ate in the zeus near the end of our holiday - up til then they didnt seem busy at all but we werent disappointed the food was great and well worth a visit

Island Tour by Coach - (Zante Excursions)

Dawn S

Use either peter at the far end near the entrance from the main road to the katerina palace or smile tours near avalon.

There is an operator in the middle of these two on the main stretch (not up the hill) do not use them - a couple booked with them while we were there and their coach didnt turn up nor did they get their money back.

I know for one peter makes the phone call to book your seats while you're still sitting in his office and you get the bus at his office.  Also he remember everyone who books with him and is as helpful as anyone can be - if you have any questions he's the man to see. Everyone else just interested in how much they can sell you.

Double - (Restaurants in Argassi)

Dawn S

I gotta ask why is this place at number 11 of the top places to go in argassi when it has a rating of 1/10?????

Fantasy Mini Golf - (Places to Visit in Zante)

Dawn S          10/10

We had a go at this whilst in argassi in may.  Had a go on all three courses and agree that they are wrongly rated.  Altho I beat my partner 2 to 1.

We always followed it with a relaxing drink in the irish bar afterwards.

Great way to spend an hour or so of your time.
