Only ever had take aways from here but they were fab!!!!

The pitta thingys were scrummy!!! And at only 1 euro 60 who can complain! The other thingys I had were kebabs and was shocked the amount that came with them! Huge portion of chips and salad!!! I cant remember how much this was - but I'd love to be there again to have one!! LOL
Just a shame we never got to go in there for a sit down meal! Maybe next time!!!LOL

15 days before we go to Alykanas, Zante. Really looking forward to visiting Mantelena again.  We went to Zante or the first time last year, but only for a week.  We have booked to go again for two weeks and can't wait to visit this fantastic restuarant again.  Food, value and atmosphere brilliant.  We ate most nights here.  I tried everything and so did my fussy husband and kids.  (kids playground) They have a swish website aswell.  Pictures look really inviting.

Hope to see you all there.

Stayed in Alykanas for 2 weeks and ate at the Mantelena for 11 nights.

Haven't been to Alykanas before and was disappointed with the first few meals at neighboring restaurants. Then we found the Mantelena.
Brilliant service, food was delicious every evening, the menu had a lot to offer. Myself and my family were made to feel very welcome. A lovely setting with background music, cheerful and friendly atmosphere and the added bonus of a play area.
Next year when I return (already booked), the Mantelena will be on the menu every night !!!

Just returned from another week in Alykanas and have to say the Mantalena is still serving up fantastically authentic food at very reasonable rates.
Tassos and Maria are excellent hosts and the waiting staff are friendly and very attentive.
The Stifado, Soutsoukakia, Psari Plaki and Sea Bream are excellent and unless requested, not a chip in sight!!
And a big plus, no "touts" outside the restaurant trying to convince you that they have the best establishment in the village,
If you haven't tried it before, give it a go.

Oh dear Mantelena what happened.  We arrived in Old Alykanas on the Sunday evening (6th Aug) and took the 25 minute stroll down to Alykanas to eat.  We were eventually seated, they were quite busy but not exceptionally so, our waitress was stressed and running around like something demented.  We ordered, waited patiently (which isnt a problem we are on holiday and in no hurry.....)  My starter arrived and we sat for 10 minutes before reminding our waitress that my husband too would like his starter, she rolled her eyes, tutted and flounced off - with style I might add.  The food was ok, however, we would like to retain our happy memories of this taverna, so will forget we ate there this year...............

Sorry Mantelena, I cannot help feel that the take away service is somewhat detracting from the main taverna.

Just come back from Alykanas we were very disappointed with the Mantelena after reading good comments before going on holiday .The food was good but the service terrible after ordering a sit failed to arrive and no explanation as to why ,we didn't feel welcome and couldn't wait to leave.

Teresa L           

lovely restaurant food was great staff very friendly we will definately be going back to mantelena and alykanas again

Dave L           

Still the best but check out Villa Mantalena...the very best accommodation on the island.

Russell & Clair           

 Just a second comment to change the Food/Service/Price to "EXCELLENT" and not average.
Best Wishes,
Russell & Clair Vince

Best wishes Russell & Clair.

The Mantelena was by far our favourite taverna on our first visit to Zante in 2000, we are going back in August 2006 and are thrilled to read the comments on here, we cannot wait to have our first evening meal at the Mantelena, we tell everyone going to Alykanas to try them, but as others have said, there are a lot of good choices to be had, so reserve judgement - just dont miss this one!!!!!

Just returned from a quick weeks break in Alykanas and have to say we went to the Mantelena every night!.
Without a doubt it's the best Taverna in the village and significantly there were locals eating there on every ocacsion too.
This was our sixth time in Alykanas,we have tried all the Tavernas but none offer the authenticity that Mantalena does. If you haven't been there before give it a go.

This was the first time we ate at the Mantelena and I have to say it was bloody marvellous.

The staff were excellent and there's a kids play area, which is safe and keeps them entertained.
I'd recommend this restaurant to everyone !! we went three times, even  had a Kebab @ 1.30am !!


We enjoyed eating here, the staff were welcoming and friendly.
