“It is one of the most hidden places and maybe for this reason more beautiful and wild of the entire island. To get there you have to pass through the mountains village of Agios Leon and from there following the signs, driving down a recently asphalted road running down to the sea and ending in a small square where you can park. From there getting down a few steps carved in the rock, you reach a real fiord stupefying the visitor for the clearness and colours of the waters. It is easy to imagine that in this place there are no many tourist facilities, only recently two terraces with loungers and umbrellas have been created but are not always enough for the request. For those who really care about caves it is worth visiting the first one just getting down the steps; once there and in the water you understand that the cave is to continue … but only for those who love extreme sports. We suggest to everybody and especially those who have their own boat, to visit Porto Roxa that is only 3 km from Porto Limnionas. It is another small bay with a slipway to put boats in the water in an exceedingly beautiful part of coast.”

“The most popular café- bar on the island, located in St’ Marks square, landmark of the island. At Avant Garde you will enjoy your morning, as well as your evening drinks and cocktails accompanied by nice music choices. Perhaps one of the busiest places with high quality coffee and drinks. ”

“Aperito is the best restaurant in Zakynthos. Its literaly on the beach of Agios Sostis, something that makes this place special! I dont even know where to start talking about this place! The wine list is excellent! The quality of the food amazing! When i hear the word "Summer" the first thing that comes to my mind is sitting on one of those front tables of aperito...listening the waves a few meters from me....looking at the lovely view of the marathonisi....enjoying a fruity, sweet tasting wine with my wife......Perfection!”

“This restaurant is famous all around Zakynthos of its excellent quality of food and service as well. You can enjoy local food and some gourmet dishes which you hardly find at other restaurants. There is also a big variety of wine, locals and other famous bottles from Greece. Prices are a little bit higher than normal touristic restaurants but the quality is also far more better”

“Very close to the Giardino Resort, two traditional Zakynthian taverns serve delicious dishes at noon and in the evening. The family tavern "Roulis" is located just 150 meters away from the accommodation, right on the beach, while, the tavern "Vardiola", is only 500 meters away, on a private beach with the same name. Feeling the light breeze of the sea while enjoying a glass of wine , you will taste in both taverns superb flavors, fresh fish and all the goods of the Zakynthian land and sea cooked in the traditional way. ”

“Great traditional tavern just along the roadside, with good outdoor seating. One of the most serious choices for good food and service on the island. It has several choices in the menu but with an emphasis on well-grilled meats. Parking area is limited. Friendly staff. Serving complimentary fruit at the end of your meal.”
