This was, i think the most crapy place I have eaten this whole holiday. The man standing in front of the restourant kind of pushes you in to the restourant but is friendly.
I would not recomend this place to you.
went to vezal two nights of our holiday and we had a good time each night!! people are friendly although one bloke didnt really know what he was doing!! See you all again soon!!
me and my mom was in zante for one week, and when we discovered Vezal, we(certainly I) didn`t want to go any other place!! EXSEPSIONELLY staff,and lovely family,(kids and "Jack Nicholsen" with wife) As many others at this page,I would be grateful to get the adress so I can send them pictures and hello!! If anybody are going there,please say HERREGUD to the charming Flammi from me
It was a very nice place and the people who were working there and the owners
We miss you!
our only low point of a fantastic two weeks. poor service, average food, charged for unwanted bread and overcharged for our meal and drinks
Could you please send me the address od Vezal Bar as i would love to send some pics i have of the place and its waiters!! had great time here with my friends will definatley be returning!! Panos the P.R for the place is great!!!
I need a telephone number to vezal restaurant .
The only good thing about this restaurant was seeing the turtles poke their heads out of the water! We have been to plenty of Greek Islands but the food here was tough & waiter staff too busy trying to get people in to eat than pay attention to clients they already have. I love tzaziki but the garlic was too much!
Vezal Bar and Restaurant Laganas Beach.
My wife and I have had the pleasure to visit Laganas over 15 times, each occasion for 2 weeks, during the past 10 years. Over this time we have built up a list of “must go” restaurants which we visit on a rota basis.
These restaurants are; on the beach . . . Greek Islands Restaurant - with waiter dancing; and the Vezal Bar and Restaurant - fantastic value on traditional Greek Dancing Nights; off the main street, the Acropolis Restaurant - quiet and romantic, and finally, on the main street, the Odyssey Restaurant - good value for money.
We were really surprised to see negative comments on the Vezal Bar and Restaurant; but if you take time to analyse the described situation, you will understand why the party of 30 expecting special treatment on a night when professional Greek Dancing is taking place for the entertainment of 200 other paying customers.
Expectation exceeded credibility – maybe the birthday party customers should have chosen a time when a professional function was not in progress.
In support of the Vezal Bar and Restaurant, we have found that it has the widest range of menu greater than any of the other restaurants listed above. We eat there at least 4 times during our regular 2 weekly holidays, and have never had any cause for complaint, so the plight of the 30 birthday partygoers must surely be an exception.
We will still be eating at the Vezal on our next 2005 visit to Laganas, and we would encourage anyone reading this note to consider that we are using our real names to endorse this information, and not hiding behind a pseudonym. George and Stella Tomlinson, Derby, England.
Hello! Me and my boyfriend went to Laganas at the end of June this yr for 2 weeks and I have to say that Vezal restaurant was fantastic in every way! We made friends with all of the lovely waiters / waitresses and they were all so friendly and would always look after you. We ate there every single night and have no complaints about anything!
The lovely waiter who kept saying "cheers babes" and "ta" was hilarious and would always come over to us and make sure he said hello.
On our last night :-( :-( we ate there and it was actually a greek night which was really good! At the end of the night everyone was going and the staff told us to stay there (as we were flying home very early in the morning and we were out our apartment by then) and they closed everywhere up while we were still sitting there.
We made great mates with all the staff, especially our fave Amgelo!
He was a lovely genuine guy who also works on the beach during the day and we are keeping in touch with him on his mobile now we are back in cr*py england!
The manager is a crazy little sweet man!!! Always knows how to get customers in there but always nice about it and loves dancing on the beach!
All in all we had a fantastic holiday from start to finish and we even sent the restaurant pics of them all (that we took before we left) and a big thank you card when we got back...rang Amgela to see if they'd received it and they were so grateful and happy!!
One last point....GO TO VEZAL RESTAURANT, YOU WON'T REGRET IT!!!!

I came here one evening with my boyfriend for just having a drink (we already had dinner somewhere else and wanted to see what kind of place this was). We were not amused at all when we overheard how the barwoman was talking very rude in Greek to a foreign girl, who obviously did not understand a word. We found this behaviour so disgusting, that we decided not to come back in this place any more!
This was our 2nd year in Zante and the manager remembered us! We were realy looked after and the food was very good. The Steak Greece is fab. The service is very good and the staff are very friendly particularly Yannis the head waiter and his 'Ta Love'! I would highly recommend this place to all.
Our party of 30 adults and children decided to dine there towards the end of a lovely holiday as it was one of our party`s birthday. Little Tatoo as we called him would accost us every night as we walked by telling us how good the food and entertainment was. So after he offered our party free wine with our meal we decided to try it. BIG MISTAKE. To be honest the food was`nt to bad but you could`nt see what you were eating because it was dark and they wouldnt put the lights on. Every person got charged 1 euro for bread that nobody ordered and ate because it was stale, the next suprise was the free wine, 2 tiny pitchers of retsina (vinegar) between 18 adults that no one could drink. As we ordered our food each family wrote down what they had ordered and it`s cost so we knew exactly what the bill should be, one table was overcharged 24 euros and our table overcharged 17 euros and that was above the 10% tax added for live music charged on both food and drink. I always say that you get ripped at least once on holiday and for our party this was it. So be warned keep away from Vezal and the poison dwarf and enjoy laganas.
We and our friends had very bad experiences with this so-called restaurant. One day the food was good, but two days later it was very bad. So bad, that a friend of mine got food-poisening! From a relative, who knows the restaurant very well, I heard some very sad stories about Vezal. The kitchen is very small and their way of working is not clean at all. And if you want to try this shot Tentoura that they offer you when they present you the bill: better don't try it! There's a good chance that another customer already tasted from the glass! The bread that you don't eat, they offer to other customers. No wonder my friend got sick there!
The service is very quick. So quick, that you sometimes don't have the time to finish your starter. When you have complaints about that, the owner, Akis, gets angry at you instead of changing this way of working! In spite of the fact that the other waiters do their best, we didn't like this at all.
One more tip: they present you bread without asking if you want it and later you pay for it. But: if you don't order it, you don't have to pay.
My friend and I returned yesterday from 2 weeks in Laganas and ate at the Vezal practically every evening ... twice we tried other places and were bitterly disappointed and once I wasn't well enough to go out. We tried a good variety of the dishes both starters and main courses .... favourites being taramasalata (apologies for spelling if wrong) .... and devilled pork steak, and swordfish from the grill.
The staff could not have been more welcoming and we'd like to say thanks particularly to Akis, Yannis, Phillipos, Aggelos, Maria and everybody else for helping to make our first visit to Zakynthos truly memorable.
We didn't just like the Vezal ...... we LOVED it. Thank you everyone. OH! And if you're a cat lover you will adore this restaurant!!!!
