Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband and I went here for a late lunch, but chose from the dinner menu (I think). The food was absolutely AMAZING; so, so, so GOOD! Both my husband and I had a main course only and it was one of our best dining...experiences ever. Every bite was heaven. Ambiance is just great. The owner, Harry, is wonderful. What a friendly, funny man! Had a great afternoon here and we will return — even before this holiday is over! ;) We 200% recommend this restaurant.More

The restaurant looks really nice, but the food was disappointing. Only 1 of 3 meals was good, and it was over priced compared to what we got. Cesar salad had cold and dry chicken, margarita pizza tasting weird and only the pasta was good.

Really amazing food, we had the Baked Feta and Arancini to start followed by the Beef and mushroom pasta for main! The staff were lovely and the restaurant was very pretty! Good option for vegans / vegetarians too! Would highly recommend!

Tripadvisor recommended this place as a good vegan option. The vegan menu came out only when asked for. The mussaka was a tasteful dish, the brownie was only vaguely resembling its namesake. Presentation would not have passed Masterchef Greece...but what was worse, that unfortunately either...the vegan mussaka or the brownie was not vegan as I had to learn it the hard way. In our case being vegan is linked to a medical condition therefore it is not a joke. Even a small amount of milk might cause a lot of discomfort so please make sure to check the ingredients before you venture the menuMore

Food was amazing, atmosphere is delightful. We had the zucchini croquettes, for appetizer, the yard salad, shrimp ravioli, husband had steak, and their signature desert of the day. Worth the wait you won’t be disappointed!

The food was amazing! Hands down worth battling the traffic to get down there. Had the zucchini Croquettes, yard salad, and beef fillets with rock potatoes. Mouthwatering food- it was worth the hype.

We looked up the best restaurants in Zante town and the Yard of Taste came up top of the list. We walked to the location and were happily surprised at how cute it was. We were greeted with friendly smile and thankfully one of the...last available tables inside! The food was beautiful and would recommend a visit if you are in the location!More

Amazing food! We had the beef carpaccio, summer salad, lamb, and crayfish youvetsi! Ambiance was also very lovely which was only made even better by the exceptional customer service. The hostess who turns out was the owner/chef of the restaurant even came up to us...at the end of our dinner to see how everything went. Honestly, we couldn’t have picked a better place to end our last night in Greece!More

Beautiful setting and venue, poor food. We ordered a chicken salad and shrimp pasta. Salad - wet with no flavour and little chicken. Shrimp pasta - nice pasta, shrimps were not fresh and did not taste great. We also ordered a water which we never...got to our table. Bill was €42 which we wouldn’t of minded if the food was nice.More

Two couples, two sets of needs - 2 vegans/2 none vegans. This restaurant not only satisfies the needs of both but has the loveliest position in this busy town. Loved every minute of this experience. So much thought has gone into the menu. This is...not for the typical mass commercial tourist experience. If you appreciate good food made with a lot of love and affection, and are prepared to pay a bit of a premium for a memorable night, then it’s for youMore

This food was by far the best on the island! The fusion of flavours were ridiculous. If I could rate higher I would! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a more sophisticated dining experience oppose to the town fried fish and chips! A*****

We absolutely loved the food and drinks tonight. Thank you for bringing unreal vegan food to Zakynthos. The vegan feta wow! You also cater for non vegans. Would recommend this restaurant 100%. The owner and her staff were so lovely and passionate about the business.
