Dioscuri Taverna - (Restaurants in Vassilikos)

Denise L  (August 07, 2003)         

Although all the tavernas in Potamia,Vasilikos are wonderful,this was our favourite.Harry,the owner is extremely friendly and informative.The food is wonderful and plenty of it.It's the only restaurant where you can get their tasty garlic potatoes.

Vassilikos Region - (Resorts in Zante)

Denise L           

I love this area.It's beautiful and friendly and quiet.
It has plenty of places to eat.
The deli/supermarket on the main road is great and Tinika and Xhronis(also known as Paul)are extremely friendly and very helpful.
The nightlife really only consists of the tavernas and the coffee bar next to the deli.(also owned by Paul's family)
We're going back in Augustand I can't wait.

Calypso Bar - (Bars in Vassilikos)

Denise L           

We went to the Greek night here last year and were made really welcome.

We were staying at the Katerina appartments in Potamia and Janelle was great and took lots of us back to them so we didn't have to get taxis.

I've added a piccie of the pool area. It's spotless.

We've not been that late,but Tinika in the deli has told us it's quite alright still.

Obviously it's a green island so it does get rain.We've had storms there in mid August.
There's a big thunderstorm going on today, as I've just looked at the webcam that's overlooking Turtle Island in Laganas bay.
The people there are great and you'll really enjoy it.
We're off  to there on the 11th of Sept.

Vasillikos Coffee House - (Bars in Vassilikos)

Denise L           

This is a really good friendly bar. It's set on the main road on the penisula,near to the Ionian beach.

It's a coffee bar by day and a bar at night.It's very pretty and Yanni will look after you well at night.
Xhronis (known also as Paul), Yanni's father, will make you a wonderful breakfast.
They own the deli next door and are an extremely welcoming family.
Tinika, Yanni's mother, will order you anything in at the deli if she hasn't got it in stock.
Go and visit them. You'll love it.
 
 

Dioscuri Taverna - (Restaurants in Vassilikos)

Denise L  (October 25, 2005)         

We had four wonderful meals here.

The young girl who serves is lovely and very friendly and the owner Tasis was very helpful.
While we were there Harry the previous owner came in and told us how pleased he was to see us still using the taverna after it being closed for a year. I had the most wonderful shrimps in there.

John Smith, It is a beautiful area and the people are wonderful. You are obviously not the type of person who should be at this resort. It is a quiet village and this is explained in all the brochures I have read.

Maybe you should have gone to Laganas.
The strip of metal appeared on the apartments in about the year 2000.It was not there in 1999 and was the result of a small quake.The building is structually sound and it's just to cover the crack so as people don't worry about it.
The quakes happen all the time.We have always had tremors there.I'm sure we've had one every year we've been. We've had them on other islands too but then that's what happens in Greece.
It's a shame that Thomas Cook have taken over the area as we've heard bad reports about them from everyone who's been to Greece this year with them.
I'm sure all you long timers like us can remember the wonderful Jenny Cassidy, the best Rep. I've ever had anywhere.She was so caring and always remembered her regulars. She lives on the island still but has not been repping for a few years now. I miss her. We'll have to start a 'Bring back Jenny' campaign. Ha Ha
For all of you going for the 1st time do not take any notice of John Smith. If you like quiet places with beautiful people, you'll love it. The tavernas are fantastic and I'm envious of you all, as we're trying Lefkada this year. I'm sure I'll enjoy it but my heart is in Vasilikos.
Happy holidays,
Denise

Forgot to add a rating last time so thought I'd better go back in and put top marks in for them.

H Janet,there are no safety deposit boxes at the Katerina but quite honestly it is crime free there.

You can change travellers cheques and money at the Marina bar,which is next to the Katerina.
Also just 5 minutes away on the main road are several supermarkets which exchange as well.
We usually used the deli next to the coffee house.
Have a great time.

Hi Will, I'm sure it's number 8 but if you've booked already you probably know that now.

We've stayed in all of the middle row studios and appartment and I know that the middle appartment is number 5.
Anyway, enjoy this beautiful place.

Hi Will, that wonderful rep was Jenny Cassidy and she was the best rep I ever had anywhere. She went the extra mile all the time.

I'm sure you'll still love it there.I hate places like Laganas as well.
Janet has written that everything is still ok in Paradise.
