main tourist resorts offer a selection of traditional tavernas
and more modern international restaurants. However, to find the most
authentic Greek tavernas, you might be advised to head outside of the
main tourist resorts. For example, one of our favourite hidden Greek
tavernas in Zakynthos is the Akrotiri Taverna, located on the coastal
road between Zante Town and Tsilivi. This little Greek taverna serves
fantastic food, while you sit under the grape vines, in this no frills
fabulous Zakynthian eatery.
What's on the menu at tavernas in Zante Zakynthos
Souvlaki can be made with pork, lamb or chicken and is traditionally grilled on a skewer. You can have souvlaki straight from the skewer or in a in pita bread with tomato, onion and tzaziki. This is a staple Greek meal and always delicious!
Lamb in the Oven
Lamb in the oven in Zante is really diving. The lamb is basted in garlic and very slowly cooked to perfection. The end result is soft, tasty meat, often served with oven cooked potatoes. Another Greek speciality.
Feta cheese is made from goat's milk and is often served on top of a fresh Greek Salad, or on its own to accompany another Greek plate.
Green and black olives are found in abundance in Zante, with olive groves all over the island. Olives are found in most salads and delicious olive oil is drizzled over many of the plates on the menu. Zakynthos is actually one of the largest producers of Olive Oil in Greece!
Tzatziki is a Greek specialty, consisting of yoghurt, cucumber and lots of garlic. Traditionally this dish is served with souvlaki, fries, bread and well just about anything else you can think of. It has a pretty intense garlic flavour, but is a real Greek staple – you have to try it while you are here on holiday in Zante.
Octopus & Kalamari
Seafood Octopus and Kalamari can be found on both the starters and mains sections of the menus. You can have your octopus grilled, soaked in vinegar or fried in batter. Another typical Greek Island dish not to be missed!
The Greek Salad is perfect for lunch or dinner, or perhaps both, on a
hot summers day in the Greek Islands. It is typically made up of big
chunks of fresh tomatoes, green pepper, red onion, cucumber and olives.
There is normally a big hunk of feta cheese on top, plenty of local
olives sprinkled around, and a good helping of olive oil and vinegar for
A plate of warm, home cooked, traditional Greek moussaka is normally high on the list of things to try when visiting Greece. The dish is made up of layers of minced meat, aubergines and white sauce. Similar to lasagne, but with a distinct Greek twist, this meal is almost as well known to Greece as beautiful beaches and ouzo!
