Have just returned from 2 weeks in Tsilivi and would like to say that the food at the Old Village was, quite simply, the best Greek food I have ever had. Everything was cooked fresh by Marina, with any requests for additions/subtractions happily accommodated. The service provided by Anna was fantastic and we ended up spending many an evening chatting to her and Marina way after the meal was finished.
Goodness me!! What a difference a year makes!!
A great understated place to dine. Welcoming friendly staff and super food. What more can I say: well perhaps their fillet steak- medium rare, with a garlic sauce on the side is simply, one of the best I have had to date! WOW!! I highly recommend this place. Be sure to give it a try WHOOPA :-)
I stay in Tsilivi every time i visit Zante. The Old Village Taverna is my favourite place to eat. Spiros the lovely man who owns it is an absolute delight. The staff are lovely and always welcoming. The first night i ate there i was telling people walking past to come in as the food was so good i could not help but try and share the experience. Their stuffed mushrooms and steak with mushroom sauce is to die for and the local greek and corfu dishes are lovely. Could not recommend it more highly. Once you dine with the lovely Spiros you will not want to eat anywhere else.
We are just back having stayed in the Panos Bay Apartments and on our first night decided to eat in the Old Village Resturant next door purely out of convenience and what a lucky choice for us !!
the best safron potatoes ive ever tasted mmmmmmmmmmmm ate here 4/7 nights well worth a try
Very Good Restaurant, ate here twice in the two weeks we were here.
went to the old village last week and had spetzofai, a sausage casserole. It was swimming in a sea of oil and tasted disgusting
The Old Village is most wonderful place in the world with wonderful persons Anna and Spiro and great foods, than you very much .... have to come back again ....
Old Village was a nice typical Greek taverna. Good mezze selections. Nice varied menu and good traditional music. Food was very nice. Would go back.
Must say that the food, wine and service was first rate. Varied menu which we tried to go through on our stay, did try else where but it wasn't a patch on The Old Village. Would recommend it to anybody who wanted to try good Greek cooking or just wanted to have a varied menu to suit all the family. The service was always first class and help was on hand to explain what some of the Greek food was made from for some of the items I had never seen on previous visits to Greece.
By far the best meal we ate in the week, Fantastic mustard potatoes with the mixed grill i had!
Went here one night and was not dissapointed.
