This is the sort of gem you hope you’ll find on holiday but seldom do. A local recommend the place and we’ve been back every night since. They bring around a sort of tapas tray and everything on it is simply delicious. We will probably...get through every dish before the end of our trip. Certainly one of the best restaurants on the island and the atmosphere is great too.More

Great family run traditional restaurant in a beautiful location - a must visit when in Zakynthos. We visited twice during our holiday there this time. The tray with starters they bring out and you can select from is a great idea, unique and means you...get food almost as soon as you sit down. All the dishes are fantastic (I especially loved the vegetarian moussaka) and the service staff is very welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. I can’t recommend this taverna enough!More

All the food we had at the taverna was delicious, with the ability to choose your appetizers immediately from the tray they pass around. The slow-cooked lamb we had was also delicious. The terrace was absolutely beautiful, with vines of grape all around you. Highly...recommend!More

Katherina rescued us on day 1 when we had just arrived and we’re completely lost, hungry and tired. We happened upon the Taverna when it was closed. Katerina gave the 6 of us iced water in 35 degrees,sorted us out with a taxi and was...so friendly and welcoming. Lucky us, as not only did we have 3 wonderful meals full of delicious food, excellent service and the friendliest welcome we’ve ever had, but she also acted as our Zante tourist information centre, sending us to the nearby car hire, sorting out taxis for us and recommending other fabulous restaurants nearby. Thank you thank you thank you to Katerina, her sister and her amazing team at the Taverna Akrotiri. You literally made our holiday!!More

The food was absolutely divine and was my favourite restaurant on the island for food in my opinion. The service was average (not surprising due to busyness) and the only factor preventing a 5 star review was the fact they forgot one of my drinks.

Taverna Akrotiri is a restaurant with an extremely cozy outdoor atmosphere and a fantastic service both from the two sisters and the rest of the amazing staff! The food is authentic Greek and the total experience is so good that we had to come back...twice in six days!More

Amazing experience. The true identity of Greek hospitality is encountered in this restaurant. Authentic Greek tastes in a traditional family tavern. I am not going to describe the flavours, which all were impeccable, because the most gracious factor that inluenced my five star rating is...the politeness of the staff.More
