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.

They cook only to fill the belly. The taste, pairing and plating are not important for them. For example I ordered a chicken souvlaki which had “salad” as side dish which had literaly one cucumbar slice and one carrote slice. SLICE, not piece. The “freshness”...of the cucumbar you can see in the picture :)) My wife had moussaca (which has potatos in it) and received as side dish…you guessed…also POTATOS :)) (french fries, poor quality). So she basically had potatos with potatos. We had to order an extra salad (10eur) + extra french fries (because I saw at another table that they received fresh cut potatos so I asked if I can also get the good potatos)…I paid extra for them, ofcourse. So overall, with all the extras, we paid 58eur for potatos with potatos and one piece of chicken. Please don’t eat here to encourage them that they are cooks.More

The sunbeds are on the grass in a small&beautifully arranged little garden. The service is great-it’s a family business and it shows-everybody is nice. The food is good, we ate excellent sardines at the waiter’s recommendation. Nobody seems to order the rabbit, it lives on....Prices were fair. We spent a lovely day there&we’re planning on going back.More

Lovely location friendly staff. BYT felt totally ripped off. A fish to share for two people ( it was delicious but simply grilled ) €120!! That’s just ridiculous we wouldn’t pay that in Mayfair!

Very nice food, cooked with love and quality ingredients. Difficult to get there, road is challenging, but it is worth it. The beach is also really nice and good for families

We had quite big portions. The food was so tasty! I am sorry for not bering able to eat it all. They also have tasty smoothies in the menu. But the highlight of what we ate was the greek salad. The ingredients were so fresh...and tasty and colourful, it's like a whole garden on our plate :)More

It’s a lovely place in the Dafni beach. The street is so small but you must visit this corner of Zakynthos. The food is fresh and service is excellent. I ate the best mussaka of the Island. Enjoy.

the road is a challenge, don't go there in the evening! We checked into our hotel almost 8.30 PM and when we asked them for restaurants near by they recommended Porto Mela without telling us how bad the road was and worst of all -...that it may be closed. So we got there and the waiter yelled at us - how did we expect to get any food so late in the evening. Well you know it's Greece and you usually have dinner late .. but anyway his attitude was horrible. Might be his bad English, i don't know but as we were leaving he said the nearby restaurant "may have some food left". So we went to Taverna Bel Mare and OMG I am so happy we got there - the waiter felt so bad for us he said they'll cook us anything on grill (they've ran out of the cooked meals like moussaka,..) We had octopus, zucchini, eggplant, mussels, tzatziki, - all the good stuff. The guys was so helpful, so nice, at the end the chef stopped by to check if we liked the food - poor woman she was hoping to go home early, so nice of her. I so regret i didn't take pictures but it was so late and we were starving :)More

Be nice if our food was served together. Waited ages for mine. It was greasy when it did arrive and was served by a waiter who couldn’t be bothered. Had to throw a cat off our table more than once - they obviously don’t mind...the quality- then found a couple of sun beds and were asked to pay for them. Better places in Greece than this dump for sure.More

The food and prices are average. The cocktails are great. The sunbeds are 5 euros when they are free at the next tavern. They do have fresh fish which is above average in Zakhyntos.

If you are hungry and want good value for money with tasty food, look no further. We made the mistake of ordering starters and main courses and had to be carried out on trolleys we had so much too eat. It was all lovely group...with a great sunset view on a deserted beach. Do yourself a favour.More
