Whenever we vist Zante (which is very often now as we have bought a place there!) it is the first place we vistit for a meal. Would recommend the slow cooked lamb and their pizza's are out of this world. Staff are really friendly too.Do not leave Zante without eating here first!!

Babbis - (Restaurants in Vassilikos)

This taverna is on the road leading to Porta Roma & Gerakas, it is next to the school. The food is fantastic, you must try the lamb chops off the BBQ grill! It is such a relaxing place sitting outside under the vines and the people who own it are so friendly. An absolute must if you visit Vasillikos.

Anyone visiting Zakynthos must take the time to visit this beautiful beach. A few changes have taken place over the last year, the information booth is now at the top of the hill leading to the beach and the car park has been closed. Before you reach the beach, the mini market on the left has ample fee parking.  Make sure you stock up with drinks & snacks here as the beach, thankfully has no bars or peddlers.

There are three tavernas available for lunch, two on the road leading to the beach and one just tucked behind both of these tavernas, here you will find a lovely garden and playing area for children, everyone is so friendly.
 
Take time to visit the Turtle research centre, it is so informative. You can also help this region by donating to Earth Sea Sky, a Charity set up to protect the Caretta Caretta, monk seals and the environment.
