May 2013 - Can be wonderful - can be poor. We ate here three times; on the first and third occasion we had Greek style dishes and they were very good. On the second occasion I had a T-bone steak which was a disaster - it was tough and dry and I left more than half of it. Although an apology was given the only recompense suggested was a free beer (as I had sent one to the chef on the previous visit). By all means go here, but stay away from the steaks and stick with Stifado or Kleftiko!
;Just returned from 2 weeks in argassi,we ate at the erato every night,their menu is that extensive we never had the same meal twice.will have to go back to try the resst of the menu next year!Elsa and her family sure know how to cook n serve; they are the best!!!!!!!!!!!
We were very sad when this restaurant closed but it reopened last summer (under new management) but kept the name. We were not disappointed, the welcome was the same (very warm and friendly) and the food was glorious as always. Looking forward to eating at Erato again upon our return to Argassi this summer, give it a try if you are in Argassi this summer.
Hi :D I'm that girl who gave you that Norwegian coin :D Elsa called me Sweetie all the time :D Miss you! :( Best restaurant EVER! :D
Just returned from Argassi last week & good to see Erato opened again & looking the same, may even be the same people. Never got chance to go in as didn't realise they were open till end of holiday but seemed pretty busy when we passed
Closed for good? - lack of business, recession etc August 2010 - Stavros & Nikos decided not to open Erato - but they still run a cafe in Zakynthos Town called Deals (on Alexander Roma Street). Benny works at a Taverna in the center of Zakynthos Town across the road (diagonally) from Leonas kebab taverna - you will see him stood at the front touting for customers as usual. Erato was always our favorite taverna - great food and friendly staff - in 12 visits to Argassi we must have eaten there over 30 times - and we were never disappointed. Sadly missed but not forgotten.
Sad to say Erato was closed last week, don't know whether it will re-open later but it doesn't look likelyApparently they are opening in July
Went here on our third night in Argassi and had to go back before we left. Three course meal for 2 and drinks for 45 euro's! Not only that, but each course was cooked to perfection. Not once did I leave a scrap on my plate. I might have put on a few stone but it was definitely worth it. The best meals we had during our stay by far and excellent service.Back in 2 years...this will no doubt be my first stop for an evening meal.
loved this place, the man on the door was the best he gave us sweets every night we walked past!! we went here twice, had mexican chicken and then bbq chicken mmm was gorgeous!!
never again. my partner was verbally abused and given the thousand yard stare after a polite and deliberately quiet complaint. could fill ten pages on our 15 minutes in here, but i'd rather spend my time writing good things on argassi's excellent bars and restaurants.
We had lovely meals and they were very friendly
We have eaten here every holiday and this year I was really suprised... our meals were not up to their usual standard, could of been an off day hopefuly it was as have always enjoyed our meals here. Will try again next year.
We ate here twice during our two week stay (tried to use somewhere different everynight and went back to our fav three at the end of the holiday).
The food and service was excellent and the meatballs here are mmmmmmm.
erato was a wonderfull place place to eat and relax with really frendly staff, and the food was excellent. we went there 3 times during our stay, and never had a bad meal, our favourite was garlic bread, chicken a la creme, and greek yoghurt with fruit and honey. we returned home on 16/5/07
