Still the most traditional Greek Taverna we have found on Zakynthos. No wonder we see so many local residents eating there. It was nice to be able to ask for cushions for those in the party that wanted them, but also nice to see someone maintaining the 'traditional' Taverna, with traditional cooking, soft traditional music and NO Big Screen TV. Just what we needed for that Shirley Valentine moment.
This is one of our fav restaurants. Always make sure we eat there a couple of times. Mmmmm
Hey! What are you looking for? This really is one of the few traditional Greek Tavernas left in Zakynthos. We have never been disappointed with any of the food, especially the Greek cuisine, as we have been visiting Greece for over 20 years and know what really good Greek food tastes like. Their prices are always reasonable too. Relax! what's the rush? the food is worth waiting for and just enjoy the ambience whilst waiting for your bill.
aunty olga uncle spiro and boys we love you and terribly miss the food c u next summer xxxx chris marianne terri
Got to agree about the service - we ate there at night and the boy waiter was a double for Kevin from Kevin and Perry - slouched shoulders and sighed everytime he was asked to do something. Quite entertaining though and food was good.
What a disappointment! This was our first stop when we arrived in Alykes - traditional taverna right on the beach. Don't know when I was last ignored with quite so much beligerence! A relaxed lunch turned into a battle to get any kind of service at all. Dreadful!
Another year in Alykes and another visit to Anatolikos. As always great traditional greek food and friendly service. Great location by the sea to watch the sun go down. Good prices so well worth a visit. Try the local wine aswell as its good.
If you're wanting traditional service and food then this is the place to go. Great location by the sea. Well done to Demitris - he serviced the tables alone yet still made sure everyone was looked after well.
Nice position by the sea, good food (try the pork steaks) but go about 8.00pm to get a good seat outside.Oh a quick word about the seats, choose carefully!!
Don't understand the low marking - we have stayed in Alykanas the last 3 years and always make the effort to visit here - the food is superb especially the Beef Stifado with proper baby onions - the beach side tables add the extra dimension.
great location with lovely sea view,
Great food. Super service. FANTASTIC location. We always try to have our first meal here just to feel "we've arrived". Also have our final meal and several others too. A super place to eat run by really nice people.
This is without a doubt the best place in Alykes the best place to eat. The food was wonderful the sarvice brilliant and the price on a par with everywhere else. The only downside is the seate take a towel or something to sit on the seats are made of straw
my wife and I have stayed in alykes 5 times in recent years , and have found Anatolikos to be probably one of the best in the area.The standard of the food is beyond reproach.(I recommend the beef stifado)the service is good (and leisurely........but who cares...what's the hurry ?) The waiters are friendly and very helpful.The tables just overlooking the beach are the best......what a romantic setting !Only downsides are the size of the seats.....I think designed to discourage prolonged sitting at tables after the meal!, and the prices since the introduction of the euro have virtually doubled.Nevertheless a very good spot for your evening meals , we thoroughly recommend it!
i wouldn't say it was the best food on zakynthos by a LONG way! it's nice to eat by the sea but there are better places in alikes where you can do that (the asteria, which isn't listed here unfortunately). my calamari had bits of bone in and was undercooked, and we had to wait ages for our bill.
this is the best restaurant in the whole of zakynthos.spiro cooks the food to perfection and it doesn't cost alot. you should taste their home mad wine....woo...it is beautiful. everybody, you eat here, you will have a great time with olga and spiro.

Lovely restaurant located just off the beach. Some tables set in pebbles which can be a little uncomfortable - worth putting up with though for the quality of the food. Highly recommended.
This place proved to be the biggest disappointment for us. We went on the recommendation of comments on this website but found it to be a let down. You needed to wear a spacesuit to cope with the lack of atmosphere. Maybe it was late in the season(sept/oct), who knows. The waiter was just plain miserable, as though we had inconvenienced him by calling in. The place was also swarming with mozzie's & cats. The food seemed ok, but after we had tried other places later in the week we realised that it was only average.
If you want 'real' greek food then this is one of the best in Alykes. Excellent suffed tomatoes and aubergines, stiffado, mousakka and enormous swordfish steaks. If you expect chips, rice and pasta salad all served with your food then this isn't the place for you. Good taverna atmosphere with friendly staff.
Great service and lovely food, and a lovely setting
Must be the best place to eat (unless you can't recognise QUALITY food. The family work very hard to provide an excellent service in a beautifull setting. Thanks for the help with our lamentable attempts at Greek ' Ena meeso kilo kokino krasi paraklo, ke mira beera' and for the 'boukali kokino krasi', which we will enjoy during the Scottish winter (same as summer, only snow not rain) months. Yia Sas & see you in 2003
The starter for two were excellent ~ enough for 4 plus! The main meals were also first class, as was the beautiful setting on the beach. Highly recommended.
Traditional Greek food in perfect surroundings - calm, relaxed overlooking the sea. This is where you'll find a lot of the locals eating too! We always think that's a good sign!
we ate here 2 or 3 times. Waiters seemed a bit surly though. The best thing about it was the nice view over the sea.
