Truly great dinner experience, bit more class and elegance for a nice cost. Ossobuco and zakynthian chicken on pasta with nice wine pairing. Perfect lemon meringue cake and Limoncello as digestive. PS not the halfway house you might expect in the figurative meaning, yet literally a house at halfway of the beach and the main street.

Erg lekker eten en heel erg klantvriendelijk. Uitstraling was ook heel mooi

Jay Gortzak 09/07/2024

I can’t recommend this place enough,we only found this by someone else telling us about it . If you get the chance to go here please do as you wouldn’t be disappointed. We had the house special belly pork mushroom sauce (wish I had the recipe)and purée potatoes absolutely delightfully

Ristorante molto carino, pulito e il personale carinissimo. Consiglio vivamente la prenotazione (noi siamo andati senza prenotazione e abbiamo dovuto aspettare circa 20 minuti). Piatti ottimi e ben curati, prezzi nella media.

Jeg havde læst en anbefaling, af en anden dansk familie, som havde prøvet The Halfway House. Jeg må til fulde sige, at det lever mere end op til hvad de beskrev. Lige fra man ankommer, kan man godt fornemme, at intet er overladt til tilfældighederne. Den sødeste tjener anviser os et bord. Vi var heldige, at der var et ledigt bord til 2. Bordene bliver dækket sirligt, og bestikket rettes lige til så det ligger sirligt perfekt. Maden er tilberedt til perfektion og smagte simpelthen så godt. Vi fik filet steak med moscato vin til, chokoladekage med vaniljeis og chokoladesovs til dessert. Restauranten er hyggelig og musikken er afdæmpet og passer til stemningen. Tjenerne sørger for at du får den perfekte oplevelse. Tusinde tak for lækker mad. Det er en god ide at bestille bord, så man ikke går forgæves. Havde vi flere dage hernede ville vi kommer tilbage.


Great food, atmosphere and service. Very romantic little restaurant in Tsvili.


Amazing Restaurant!! The food was just amazing and the lamb that we had was to die for!! Rustic but elegant at the same time! All the waiters were super friendly and helpful! Definitely would come back!


If you're in Tsilivi: go there now!! Incredible value for money. Food was excellent as well as the service and atmosphere.

Es war bisher das beste Restaurant für uns auf der Insel. Typische griechische Küche, hervorragend zubereitet, sehr frische Zutaten, nicht unnötig gehoben aber trotzdem elegant und einfach herausragend. Perfekte Mischung auf bodenständig und elegant. Besonders hervorzuheben, der baklava cheesecake, großartig 👏.

A beautiful place for dinner. Good food, great service

Halfway House maintains high standards across the board, ensuring a memorable dining experience. While the price may be slightly above average, I found the quality of the food to be exceptional. The Gallic prawns and spring rolls were delightful starters, but the spring rolls with the jam topping were an absolute standout. For the main course, we had for the fillet steak and salmon fillet. The fillet steak was cooked to perfection, and the salmon fillet, although it had the skin left on, was easy to remove and incredibly flavourful. The attention to detail in the preparation of these dishes was fantastic. I must commend the entire team at the Halfway House for their excellent service. The staff were friendly, and knowledgeable. In conclusion, I highly recommend the Halfway House for those seeking a dining experience that combines high standards, excellent food quality, and exceptional service. I look forward to visiting again soon. Well done to the whole team!

Das beste Geschmackserlebnis auf Zakyntos. Die Mitarbeiter sind sehr aufmerksam und nicht aufdringlich. Man fühlt sich willkommen. Der Wolfsbarsch mit Rote Bete Creme ist köstlich. Wir kommen wieder wenn wir auf der Insel sind.

Ramzi B 24/06/2024

We went there twice. The food was delicious. We can recommend the seabass and the salmon as well as the lamb shank and the cocktails.

Kathrin L. 23/06/2024

Erg lekker gegeten, zeer vriendelijk en net personeel. Wat ons betreft zeker 1 van de beste op het eiland.

Uitmuntend heerlijk gegeten!! Zeker een aanrader!! Beter van te voren even reserveren.

We were advised of this restaurant by a taxi driver otherwise I wouldn't have known about it. The food and drinks was amazing and varied and staff were friendly, knowledgeable and attentive! Great place highly recommend 🥳


Great location and ambience for a summer evening. Super user friendly staff. Although there are only a few vegetarian options on the menu, they informed us that all pastas can be made vegetarian. Gemista was amazing!


Lovely airy restaurant in a quiet side street. Excellent menu, serving brilliantly prepared food by people who know what they’re doing. Nice wine list with good local selections by the glass. Well worth searching out, this could be the best food in Tsilivi.

Mike Mungall 11/06/2024

Bij dit restaurant gegeten op de revieuws afgegaan. Wij vonden het eten oké maar niet beter in verhouding tot de prijs. Personeel was zeer vriendelijk en correct! Eigenaresse daarintegen hing er verveeld bij, kon alleen de gasten aanstaren, zeer onbeleefd. Sfeer is relaxed, al met al oké maar niet voor herhaling vatbaar.

Marja S 10/06/2024

Excellent. Booked for another visit.

Esmé Varley 07/06/2024

Cenamos en pareja y la experiencia fue excelente. Desde la entrada al local hasta la cuenta el trato es afable, tranquilo y cómodo. Los platos son más que suficientes en cantidades además el sabor y presentación es realmente bueno.


Παρα πολυ καλή εξυπηρέτηση. Υπερτιμημένο σαν μαγαζι κατά τη δική μου άποψη .


Way overpriced for Greece, even when the food, quality and overall vibes was great, still overpriced, 100 euros for 3 courses.

Alex Drabbe 01/06/2024

We werden vriendelijk ontvangen op een mooie locatie. Personeel is vriendelijk en het eten is heerlijk!


Tolles Restaurant mit sehr aufmerksamen Service. Es ist ein wenig teuerer im Vergleich zu anderen Restaurants, jedoch ist eine gute Qualität gegeben. Sehr zu empfehlen ist die Steak Pasta.

Joelle B. 29/05/2024

Lækker moderne græsk mad. Dejligt med nogle nye fortolkninger af klassiske græskeretter.


What a gorgeous place! The food was delicious, the wine was fabulous and the staff were great. Really nice evening, would absolutely recommend. We had the gambas to start and the lamb and chicken for mains. The rose prosecco and root of the mountain red wine were great!


What a find! Absolutely delicious food and varied wine list. Timothy and his staff are very attentive. We rate this as our favourite restaurant in Tsilivi


The food was very good. Great cocktails. I only wish that they would serve a little more sauce with their Sirloin steak. It had chimichurri with it, but it was a very very small amount.

ΦΟΒΕΡΑ ΟΛΑ! Εάν είστε στο Τσιλιβι αξίζει να το επισκεφτείτε… Πήραμε την μελωμένη πανσέτα, ζυμαρικά και μια ποικιλία ορεκτικων. Είχαμε ακούσει πολύ καλά λόγια από καποιους ντόπιους, γι αυτό προσπαθήσαμε να πάρουμε όσο περισσότερα πιάτα μπορούσαμε! Το μαγαζι ίσως έχει την μεγαλύτερη ποικιλία κρασιών και το προσωπικό προσφέρει wine pairing, ωστόσο καθώς δεν μου αρέσει το κρασί, προτίμησα να πάρω cocktail το οποίο ήταν εξαιρετικό. Αριστη σχέση ποιότητας τιμής. Επιτέλους ένα εστιατόριο στην ζακυνθο που δεν κοιτάει την τσέπη σου αλλά πως θα περάσεις όντως καλά!

Cassandra Κ 14/05/2024

Heerlijk gegeten, garlic mushrooms en rijst met prawns, super vriendelijk, leuke sfeer, en makkelijk parkeren. Shirlion steak was voortreffelijk.


Heel erg leuk tentje. Heerlijk gegeten en cocktails gedronken. Het personeel is heel erg vriendelijk, sociaal en zeker niet opdringerig. Tijdens het eten meerdere malen gevraagd of alles naar wens was en een gezellig praatje gemaakt. Geslaagde avond!

Isa Bezuijen 07/10/2023

Sehr freundlicher und zuvorkommender Service. Das Essen war richtig lecker. Nicht das günstigste Restaurant, aber Preis/ Leistung absolut top.


Geweldig leuke locatie. Eten en bediening van hoog niveau!!

Just perfect !


Our favourite restaurant in town. Steaks were cooked to perfection and the portions were ideal for the smaller appetite so no waste. An absolute must place to visit.
