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!

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.

Geheimtipp mega geiles Essen mit dem besten Personal auf der Insel

Einfach nur Top! Wir waren an unserem letzten Abend nochmals im Halfway House. Alle Mitarbeiter sind sehr freundlich und aufmerksam, toller Service. Das Essen von der Vorspeise bis zum Dessert hervorragend. Auch der Wein wie die Drinks sind sehr zu empfehlen. Werden wir definitiv beim nächsten Urlaub wieder besuchen.

Hier moet je zeker langskomen! Vriendelijk personeel, het is eten is om je vingers van af te likken! Ze geven je tips voor wijn bij je keuze maar dringen zich niet op. Leuke plek om te zitten. Hier komen we zeker terug!

5 star service, whole family and 1st grand daughter working there 😀 , nice atmosphere and good food

google

Jedna z najlepších reštaurácií na ostrovoch! Prvý krát sme sa šli najesť niekde podľa “pocitu” a nie podľa recenzií na google a poviem vám, že sme neoľutovali a definitívne sa vrátime. Atmoféra aj obsluha bola dokonalá a jedlo úplne famózne. Ako predjedlo sme si dali mušle a ako hlavný chod sme zvolili sea bass a chobotnicu. Čerešnička na torte bol dezert, doporučovaný z každej strany. Úžas!! Toto miesto by nemal prehliadnuť nikto.

The food and service was excellent

Ένα πολύ όμορφο μέρος για να απολαύσεις αυθεντικές ελληνικές γεύσεις, από φρέσκα αγνά υλικά. Σίγουρα θα ξανά επισκεφτώ τον εν λόγω χώρο και ευελπιστώ να δοκιμάσω και άλλα πιάτα...

Viikon paras illallinen, seabass ja rapurisotto. Henkilökunnan toiminta huomioivaa ja tunnet olevasi tervetullut.

Really nice staff, paid attention to us and to our 1,5 year old to make sure we were comfortable. Good selection of food and you can tell it gets attention. Even the beetroot mash for our kid had a flower in it. The food was really good and the price is accordingly. Would recommend.

We’ve been here for 2 nights in a row. Best food we had in Zakynthos. Would highly recommend!

Simply the best lamb shank I had! Blissful fish. Such a shame I didn't try this place sooner. Will try another dish tomorrow

Het beste restaurant in Zakynthos. Elk gerecht is perfect qua smaken en porties. De bediening is uitzonderlijk vlot en vriendelijk. Alsook een heel goede sommelier. Bovendien heel stijlvol hoe ze allemaal dezelfde outfit aan hebben.

Easily the best service we received in this restaurant out of everywhere we went - very friendly staff Food was nice Good drinks choice and reasonably priced Enjoyed our meal 👍 Tip: it gets quite busy so you're best booking a table

We visited this restaurant 3 times during our stay in tsilivi (one night being my birthday) and it’s fair to say it was our favourite by a far mile!! The atmosphere, the service and of course the food was all amazing you could not fault it. The staff even went as far as to write me a birthday note they were so friendly and thoughtful and went above and beyond which made my night that wee bit more special 🙂 I would highly recommend anyone to visit this gorgeous little restaurant when visiting the town!!!

Restoran se nalazi u mirnom kraju nekih 500m od glavne ulice, rade po principu rezervacija. Hrana je apsolutno fenomenalna, veoma lepo poslužena i apsolutno savršena. Restoran se čak može svrstati u kategoriju “fine dining“. Cene su malo više u nego u okolnim restoranima ali to apsolutno opravdani. Definitivna preporuka da ih posetite!

google

Wir hatten als Vorspeise das Brot mit verschiedenen Dips, als Hauptgang das Hühnchen (Art Gulasch) und das Lamm, beides regionale Gerichte und als Nachspeise das Dessert des Tages. Mit einem Wort einfach wunderbar! Das Highlight war dann noch, dass ein Kellner versehentlich 2 Espresso-Martini gemacht hat und mich gefragt hat ob ich einen möchte, dankend angenommen und ein neues Lieblingsgetränk entdeckt! Wunderschöner Abend, wir kommen sicher nochmal vor unserer Abreise!

Gezellig en eigentijds ingericht. Heel vriendelijk personeel. Heel netjes, verzorgd, behoort tot de betere klasse. Het eten is enorm verzorgd, grote porties en overheerlijk. Heb je bepaalde voorkeuren of allergieën, met alles wordt rekening gehouden. Aanrader!!!

Ein sehr romantischer und entschleunigender Ort um in guter Atmosphäre zu speisen. Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen und können vor allem die Lignuine und den Octopus empfehlen. Das Personal ist sehr zuvorkommend und man fühlt sich sehr gut umsorgt. Zum Abschluss gibt es eine sehr großzügige Portion (eigentlich ist es eine kleine Flasche) hauseigenen Digestif, bei welchem es sich nicht um Ouzo handelt. Eine Reservierung vorab würde ich empfehlen. Wir kommen gerne wieder, vor allem aufgrund der Linguine!

Wonderful experience, the best wines I've found on the island. The food was amazing, I had the pork belly which just melted in your mouth. We'd highly recommend this restaurant 👌

Finest food on the island. Intimate and cosy outdoor space. Amazing Greek service. All you need to spoil your partner and family.

In Tsivili this was our favourite place to visit! All the way from the kindness of the waiters to the quality of food, nothing was amiss and it was all excellent! I'd have loved to eat here every night but i don't think our budget would have accommodated! Which brings me onto the price; it is good to go at least once on your holidays, but expect to splurge! We tried to walk in but was told that they were fully booked but we booked in for the next day just fine. We were a family of 4 however so we might have been more difficult to accommodate than say a table of 2 Would reccomend and go here again!

Absolutely perfect. In an area where simple Meat and garlic dishes are the norm, this place stands out head and shoulders. From Friendly and professional staff to a great atmosphere, and from great food to amazing drinks.. this place has it all!

μπορώ να πω οτι ειναι ενα απο τα καλύτερα φαγητά που εχω φαει γενικα (δοκιμάσαμε μακαρονάδες)

Awesome food, wine and staff.

Best restaurant on the island! We like restaurants to be a little further from the busyness of city centers so this was a nice place to do that. We also decided to come here because of the photos we saw online! We ordered the octopus with pureed beans, shrimp with ouzo, and a beef carpaccio starter and olive oil, olives, and bread. We cannot emphasize this enough: get the house wine! My husband who is not a wine drinker said it was the best wine he had ever had in his life and I agree. The food was amazing! The quality of the food and the service is remarkable. Every single staff member was attentive, well-trained, and personable. The bartender from across the room knew I wanted to order a second glass of wine just by with a hand gesture. Unbelievable! Go here for the best meal at a fraction of the price.

Tonight is the last night of a very successful season!

We would like to thank every member of our team for their effort and dedication. A very challenging season with a lot of expectations and a lot of stress has come to an end.

We would also like to thank each and everyone of our guests for their love, support and trust!

Here’s to a good rest through the winter and we can only promise we will put all our love and effort to create a beautiful menu for 2024!

From everyone at the Halfway House, have a nice winter!
Try our refreshing Mastiqua lemon and Mastiqua cucumber. For the hot days ahead.
