Amazing experience! Kind and professional staff go above and beyond. Perfect recommendations for drinks and dinner. I had the aubergine as a starter, the slow cooked pansetta for main and frygania as a dessert. Everything was so tasty thank you very much!

Menu ma mało pozycji ale to raczej na plus, bo pewność że jest świeże. Pyszne jedzenie. Porcje w sam raz. Souvlaki z kurczaka soczyste, nadziewana papryka i pomidor dobrze doprawione, makaron z wołowiną pyszny. Ceny trochę wyższe ale warto odwiedzić.

We had read the reviews so were expecting this place to be good and it didn't disappoint. We had suffered disappointing weather so needed a little bit of a lift and it worked. I had vegetable spring rolls and my partner had halloumi cheese for starters and they were both very good. I then had the lamb shank and my other half had the sea food linguine and both were excellent. Gazing around it looked like the lamb shank was a particular favourite. We had an excellent bottle of Chianti with our meal which worked a treat with our choices of food. The staff were informative and friendly without being intrusive - a perfect mix. I would seriously make this place a must visit if ever you are in Tsilivi looking to have a good meal.

Our favourite restaurant in Zakynthos - food is spectacular, really lovely atmosphere and staff are amazing.


Absolutely amazing family-run place. The service was fantastic, so friendly and personal. the wine & food was delicious. Could not recommend this place enough. I had the Gemista, a vegetarian recipe of the owners grandmother and it was so good. Will definitely be squeezing another visit in before I leave.


Excellent from start to finish, One of the best meals we've ever had - Thank you

Laura Tinney 08/10/2022

very atmospheric restaurant located on a quiet road not too far from the main street. Delicious starters, main courses and desserts to enjoy. definitely recommended


My partner and I dined here three times during our weeks stay on the island. I’ve been lucky enough to sample many wonderful restaurants on the Ionian islands, this is one is the best. A special mention to the gentlemen who welcomes you to the restaurant and ‘Chris’ from the waiting team, both wonderful! The fresh fish, pastas and the lemon meringue are real highlights!

Tolles Restaurant, was man nur wärmsten empfehlen kann. Wir sind selbst durch eine Empfehlung auf das Restaurant gestoßen. Man sitzt sehr schön, die Bedingung ist sehr freundlich und aufmerksam und das Essen ist sehr lecker. Die Preise sind vll etwas gehobener, der Besuch ist das Geld jedoch definitiv wert. Was will man mehr.

The staff are very friendly and the food was amazing

Julie Keane 24/09/2022

Definitely the best place in all of Zakynthos. The staff is super nice, helpful and respectful, greatly trained. The food is out of this world, they could definitely charge way more! We went there to a later time and decided to go there instantly again the next day. The place is cozy and the atmosphere is relaxing. 100% a must go to!

Nima Rafiee 21/09/2022

4 dagen later nogmaals hier gegeten en wat een kunstwerken maakt de kok ervan. Zeebaars en Tonijnfillet van de grill. Heerlijk en als toetje de Lemonmerengue. To die for Het hele team heeft service hoog in het vaandel staan.


5 ⭐️ reviews got me there. We had a quick dinner. Everything was delicious. The place isn’t that big, so it’s cozy, not crowded. I guess we were lucky, because they’d found us a table in seconds without reservation. The staff was pretty nice. I recommend !


Ontvangst met champagne omdat we wat te vieren hadden, heerlijk verzorgd avondje door Tim en zijn team. Aanrader is de Rioja in combinatie met de rib eye, smullen 😉 Thanks Halfway House !

Hervorragendes Essen mit tollen Service. Gerne wieder


Beetje über hoge rating met 5 sterren, maar wel terecht. Top service, goede sfeer en ere aan alle eerdere ratings; l e k k e r. Ben je hier: aanrader, doen, maak een reservering.

sirmoggi 13/09/2022

Reservation is a must! Great vibe, great food and cocktails, great attentive staff. It is on expensive side, but you see and taste what you are paying for. Away from a touristic street, just a great gem in Tsilivi area.


Nice service. Nice place. Nice presentation. Really good drinks. Best Pork Belly in Zakynthos, and actually not that bad with the price. Recommended.


Virkelig lækkert mad, og meget sød og venlig betjening


In one word: Amazing!


If you know what is food quality and how does it taste - you must visit halfway house in tsilivi. Food has many flavors!! You get what you pay for. Amazing service, quality, atmosphere. I got desperated of all the same dish in the main street with loads of french fries…. You need to visit this place ♥️

Tolles Essen, nette Mitarbeiter, fairer Preise. Unbedingt den lieblichen Wein aufprobieren!


Чистота, приятная атмосфера и оооооочень вкусно! 100% рекомендую посетить этот ресторан

Elena Nuss 03/09/2022

Wir haben uns in diesem Lokal sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Personal was überaus freundlich, der Wein sehr gut und auch das Essen war überdurchschnittlich gut. Wir würden das Restaurant jederzeit wieder besuchen.

Vreni Mo 02/09/2022

High-class restaurant with good prices. No cheap stuff, nothing that is bad. Well organized, very friendly and very attentive staff. Even watching them reassemble the tables is a joy to watch because it's so clean and structured. Have been there twice during our vacation at Zakynthos because of everything. Good and tasty food, good wine, nice staff, a feel-good place. But you should reserve a table at their website or at the restaurant itself. The honeyed pork belly is shown on the picture. So delicious. Tender, juicy, honey-ish with one of the best mashed potatoes I had plus mixed peppers and mushrooms in a sweet red wine sauce. Yes, please!

T Michalak 31/08/2022

Just a wonderful experience! The service is incredible and the food super delicious. From starters to desserts everything was perfect. I wish I would have come back here one more time to try out more dishes.


Dined here tonight with my family, made a reservation a good few weeks in advance after a recommendation from a friend. Wow, this place is fantastic, charming, attentive staff, food was delicious, the whole experience from start to finish was second to none. Best restaurant in the area! Thank you Timothy!

Hayley Webb 29/08/2022

Einfach ein super Restaurant. Die Bedienung ist Klasse, sehr nett und zuvorkommend. Das Ambiente ist so angenehm. Das Essen ist sehr gut. Von 4 Tagen Zakynthos waren wir 4x hier Abendessen und es war jedes mal TOP. Mein Freund, der selbst kocht und egal wo wir sind das Essen immer bewertet, war verliebt und meinte wir essen nur noch hier. Super, weiter so!

Linda Mujaj 28/08/2022

Amazing experience. The food was excellent, good prices, very friendly staff and fantastic service! Thank you, we will be coming again before we fly home!

Lauren Purdy 27/08/2022

Wir, mein Mann und ich, waren innerhalb einer Woche gleich 3 mal an diesem bezaubernden Ort essen. Der Service ist aufmerksam und zugleich sehr herzlich und wirkte zu keiner Zeit aufgesetzt. Das Essen war hervorragend, wir hatten unter anderem den Red Snapper, Lamb Chops und die King Prawn Linguine. Der Wein wird auf Wunsch dem Essen entsprechend passend empfohlen, der Fisch auf Nachfrage fachmännisch filetiert. Ich empfehle dieses Restaurant in jedem Fall, es wäre sogar aus meiner Sicht ein Must-Have bei einem Besuch auf dieser Insel. Eine Reservierung sollte man vorsichtshalber machen, da sich schnell Schlangen bilden aufgrund der Beliebtheit.

Katharina B 27/08/2022

Γευστικό φαγητό, πολύ όμορφος χώρος και ήσυχο περιβάλλον για όποιον θέλει ένα καλό δείπνο. Αξίζει από την πρώτη στιγμή και η εξυπηρέτηση είναι σίγουρα η ιδανική. Ξεχωρίζει από τα υπόλοιπα τουριστικά μαγαζιά (εστιατόρια), τόσο σε ποιότητα, όσο και σε εμπειρία.


Wonderful place with amazing food and outstanding service. We have a really nice time here.
