yes definitely gone to Australia so Skippy's is no more
My husabnd found this little place as he went for a stroll into Alikes from Alikanas he said he liked the look of it even though it was closed. so that night off we set into Alikes and had one of the best meals ever Spit Roasted Lamb FANTASTIC the portion size was HUGE but every piece of lamb melted in your mouth. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO ALL LAMB LOVERS.We had a slight confussion over what size house wine we wanted but it was'nt WASTED!!!!. Keep it up SKIPPY!!!!!.If we visit Alikanas again we will be back for sure!!
we ate in skippys twice during our 2 week stay in july ,absolutely fanastic we thoroughly enjoyed both nights excellent food,v friendly and welcoming staff i strongly recommend this place to anyone who goes to zante ......maybe the paporo restaurant further down in town on the beach should take several leafs out of skippys book .......cos paporos could certainly do with it ..HERE'S TO SKIPPYS long may he remain supreme on the island
We visited Skippys in early June and were delighted to see them both back and working.We had two fantastic meals with excellent company from the family.PS if you are ordering steak check the size with John first, the first time I got a 16oz it was lovely but huge the second time I asked for 8oz and got 12oz.FANTASTIC PLACE WITH FANTASTIC PEOPLE
Can anyone tell us if Skippy (John) and Nikki are back in Zante, we saw the message saying he was going to Australia but are just wondering if they had settled there or returned to Zante. Hope someone can help us, would appreciate any help ta
well what can i say the food was to die for will deffo go back to this restaurant again if i am in alikes the food portions were huge and we had to order the kid size spagghetti bolognese cause there was so much of it and the chicken fillet was the bees knees so do try if your in alikes

Hello to everyone. Just a Quick one, to say that I am impressed with this site and good on yas for all the lovely comments you have put here.
I am afraid that all good things have got to come to and end.To most of you who know me for a while now ( 11 years ) you probbably remember that thru the years I have been wanting to go back to OZ to live as there is alot to do back home and alot to catch up to, local gossip etc etc. well ever since year 2000 when I got married people known us as the cpl who one wants to go back to Sydney and the other wants to stay here, now is the time to go home, back to reality and to leave wonderland (Zante). I am kinda fond of this island as it is one of the most beatifullest in Greece, And I will come back for a holiday at some time -maybe every other year- to cut a long story short we are going to Australia on the 15th of November, hopfully for good. It all depends on Nikki, if she likes it we will stay, if not we shall be back in March ready for the next season.
If she does like it though I will come back and sell up. The whole lot jeep van bike skippys and maybe the house too. So wish me best of luck and also that Nikki will love Australia. A big thankyou to all of our guests who came here and dined with us over the years and who knows maybe we see one onother again. My email is email@example.com anyone like to send us a message or their wishes, we will be glad to hear from you. To the ones coming out here next year enjoy your stay and go to skippys for a drink. you take care ofyourselves now love to all, Skippy
We're off to Zante on 23rd September, does anyone have any photos of Skippys?
If so please post them here or e-mail them to Jenny_Phil@hotmail.com

A family run bussiness, very nice folk (not bad 4 a nottingham forest fan) My family n I have eaten there 4 the last 4 years (with a break in-between of course) Give the place a whirl, we like it.
sorry i meant this year
i went to alykes for 3 weeks in september last year. skippys is the best place to eat in the whole resort. the family are friendly and serve you well. the food is fantastic and the wine is always flowing nicely.
i will be going out to alykes next year for a week so if there are any single ladies up for a laugh then e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Visited skippys in September 2003. Food was excellent as were most meals in Alykes. The best meal during our holiday by far was the Beef stifado and the Roast Lamb at Skippys. Cheapest pints in Alykes, but the best thing about the place was the fantastic hospitality. They never rushed you or charged about to get the next customers in and found the time to sit at your table and have a chat. Priceless.
just got back today monday 20th oct, john and his family made us very welcome, the breakfasts were excellent and main meals were fantastic will be back again next year.
went back several times always made welcome and food was excellent.
good food at an honest price,skip and his crew have time for everyone.they didn't know me but treated me like an old friend,we will return.those that say his steak's are like leather must wear real soft soled shoes ha ha ha!
as we were staying in alykanas it was a pleasure to eat here.john and staff very pleasantfood terrific(mussels starters were gorgeous but v filling)the steaks are the best ive ever had abroad.a great meal in pleasant company if ever in that area again it will be our first stop. outstanding
The best value for money on the island. In particular the steaks were done to perfection.The friendliness of the staff was also very enduring.
The best place we ate at.John must know us because we ate there 4 times.I would advise to get there at 7.00 to half past because it gets busy.
