Taking a walk along the Zante road we came across the Rainbow. I can't believe we haven't tried this Taverna before. Fantastic food - traditional dishes. We shall definately be eating there again.

Lovely restaurant and excellent value. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the food was extremely tasty. We went back 3 times and would highly recommend taking the the short walk to get to this family run taverna.

Have been going to the Rainbow for quite a few years now, food is excellent, and the family are lovely. This year we met Lambros (so cute) and Athena Nico`s lovely wife. If you don`t want to be rushed and want to spend time to enjoy your meal this is the place to go.

We have been visiting Zakynthos for many years and discovered the family run Rainbow in Kalimaki about two years ago. Best restaurant in the resort for relaxed atmosphere and superb Greek food.We felt welcome on each visit.Will return again next year. Roger & julie Gould

We had 2 weeks in the Rainbow Apartments in September 2002 it was excellent the view was fantastic we even had an earthquake, the apartments are clean and basic as expected, what would be an improvement is if the sheets and towels were changed more frequent. The Rainbow Taverna attached to the apartments served excellent Greek food we eat there on the first night and it was so good we eat there for the rest of the holiday. Don & Edna Lay

Another of the more upmarket Kalamaki restaurants, away from the people who'd rather eat burgers & chips. Excellent food, excellent value. Drinks for 3, starter for 2, 3 main meals and a bottle of wine for £16. Equal to Zepos for best restaurant in Kalamaki.
