Once again had many an excellant meal here think between us we have worked our way through the menu on the many occassions we ate here,  their sizzling fajitas are out of this world!!! and there is a lovely little play area for the kids to play in to keep them occupied.

Stuart is absolutley fantastic and our little girl loves him to pieces, she wanted to eat here every night so that she could see him!!  Chloe the waitress is one of the best in Argassi and nothing was too much trouble she even got my little Chloe to eat more of her dinner (something we were not having any success with)
 
Stuart best of luck for the coming year and hopefully we will see you soon... give us a call when you're back over in the UK.

Great place Kev and staff are great only sorry that didn;t get there more as whenever little girl went on to palyground she went over excited and took all night (literally) to calm down.  Will come and see you again next year.

 
 
 

Erato - (Restaurants in Argassi)

Lovely restaurant, gorgeous food, excellant prices and wonderful staff.  Have used this reatuarant for 9 years now and have never had a bad meal.

Granada - (Restaurants in Argassi)

Jon E           

Only managed to eat here once during our 2 week stay (little girl had other ideas) but would have happily ate here everynight the Kleftiko is absolutely gorgeous it just melts in your mouth, the waiters are friendly and offer an excellant choice of meals. For a taste of real Greek food you must eat here at least once during your stay

Peppermint - (Restaurants in Argassi)

Jon E           

Superb, superb and superb what more can I say!! Great pasta dishes and fillet steaks to die for !!, well worth the walk and finding up the street opposite the church.

Windmill Hotel - (Accommodation in Argassi)

Jon E           

Just came back from our 3rd stay at the windmill had another great stay at great apartments, very freindly staff and owners, very clean and modern rooms a lot better than you will find in other apartments in greece!! all rooms have been refurbed in the last 12months and are very modern.

Cant understand some of these other comments about noise as we have stayed in rooms 208 , 214 and this time 101 and have never heard any noise from reception or from the maids early in the morning!! in fact room 101 has got to be one of the best in the hotel as there is no one above or below only one room to the side of you.
 
In a great location only 5 minutes walk away from the centre but with no crowding from other hotels around it!! and no noise from the bars and restaurants!
 
Thanks to all for another great stay, see you all next year (Hopefully twice again!!)

The choice of food is overwhelming...which do I choose? Indian or Chinese no seriously they are both delicious especially the Ken & Jude sauce on the sizzling chicken tikka.  Our little girl loved the vegetable rice.

We had both an Indian and a Chinese meal here and can honestly say that it is as  nice and as cheap as any restaurant at home.
 
Loooking forward to our next visit just for the prawn crackers and sweet & sour chicken.
 
The waiters are so friendly and don't hassle you to eat there.

First Choice - (Tour Operators in Zante)

Jon E  (October 03, 2006)         

Great flights, great hotels, but as soon as they reliase your not going to be going on there trips you will get ignored same as most other tour operators really!! Rep didnt speak to us once in 2 weeks in september! as soon as they knew we werent even going on the coach  from and to the airport (although the hire car was also through first choice!) no contact from rep at all , same happened in may, But hey if you already know the island why bother with the reps from the tour company youve gone with!!

There is a message board for conversations , not just keep rating a restuarant which has some very bad reviews may be nice but going by the reviews and seeing how little customers they get it isnt though, but we have never eaten here due to the annoying little twerp outside

Maybe reviews should be left to people who have actually been to the places and even stayed in the resort unlike the previous comment, see you all in 7 weeks!!!

Mythos at 3pm please!!!

Red Lion - (Bars in Argassi)

Jon E  (September 03, 2007)        10/10

see you next year!!!

Admiral Hotel - (Accommodation in Argassi)

Jon E          1/10

This was our 8th visit to Argassi and our first and last time staying at the Admirals.

 
First impressions were good, .  Modern and recently refurbed rooms a separate sleeping area for our little girl.  The bathroom was lovely with a bath and shower.  Kitchen basic but what you expect in Greece.
 
But first impressions can be wrong....
 
Flat lilos at the bottom of the pool, ashtrays  and bottles floating in the pool along with sweets.  Not a very big pool considering the size of the hotel.
 
Maids did not clean rooms very well, underneath the beds were disgusting as we found out when our little girl dropped her sweets under the bed....
 
The balcony was never swept, even after the fires in the mountains deposited ash all over it.
 
The sheets and towels were only changed twice during the  2 weeks we were there and when we complained to reception they said "not my problem!"
 
All the rooms equiped differently some had TV's (not that we need one) and varying electric appliances, we asked reception if we could have a toaster instead of a grill and reply was "you get what you get, if you want swap find someone"
 
They are more interested in the poles than any other tourist, even letting them sit by the poolside at all hours drinking.
 
Needless to say we will not be staying here again.

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.

Peppermint - (Restaurants in Argassi)

Jon E          10/10

Yet again another 2 excellant meals here,  both times I had grilled fillet steak and it melted in my mouth.  Their pasta dishes are all freshly made.

We had a two course meal for 3 and a bottle of wine and still had change from 40 euros.
 
Looking forward to our visits there next year.

Legends Bar - (Bars in Argassi)

Jon E          10/10

Great food although we did eat it in their bar next door called  Red Lion .

 
Sunday Roasts including pudding... we don't usually do these in Greece but after seeing them on our first night we had to have one the following week.
 
Chef is great all meals are superb.... you must try his homemade burgers.

Dimitrios Beach Bar - (Bars in Argassi)

Jon E          10/10

Lets Try Again

 
Great Pool Bar, With Hard working staff , Lorenzo your a star!! and the to the waitress (sorry forgot your name!!) nothing was to much hassle lovely girl!!
 
BBqs are Great!!
 
Great place to sit and watch the sun go down after a hard day sunbathing there!!
 
Cant believe that on our 8th visit to Argassi this was the first time we have been to this place!! Will be back again next year!!
 
Its so good we normally spend most days on beaches around the island, not this time we spent 12 days out of our 14 here!!
