Still run with military like precission by Captain Vassili but not quite as strict, as he has employed the same barman ( Costas ) for the last 2 years were as he usually sacks 4 or 5 a season.

Looking forward to being back in Alykes in October, canít wait to visit the Yria Cafť again to sample the best kept ice-cold Mythos on the island. If you are going to Alykes this summer be sure to visit the Yria, a warm welcome from Vassilis (the owner) is guaranteed and so is the quality of everything he serves, very highly recommended, if you donít visit Yria, you havenít experienced the spirit of Alykes. Have a wonderful holiday.

Just back from Alykes. Wish I was still there. The Yria gets better each time I visit. I always liked the directors chairs but now Vassilis has leather couches in the outer area and is looking great in white and blue. Dimetra and Dragonis as friendly as ever and Vassilis still in my view, best host in the village. Good to see the banter between him and Costas. Keep up the good work if I don't make it in September then will be back next May. Anne

Hi Vassilis, Dimitra and Dragonis
Two days to go before we fly back to Zakynthos. Looking forward to seeing you all again and walking through the village to get to the best bar in town!
Hope you're all okay...can't wait to see you all and looking forward to the ice cold Mythos and England v Mexico on Monday!!
To everyone else in Alykes or going there in the future, try the Yria. You're guaranteed not to be disappointed as Vassilis, the host is one of the friendliest,  most knowledgable  and nicest people we've ever met and always provides a warm welcome.
See you soon

Both looking forward to another holiday in Alykes and especially spending some wonderful evenings in the Yria where the best kept Mythos in Alykes is served in ice-cold glasses. Great choice of music and a warm, friendly atmosphere where evryone (including kids) is made very welcome by the owner, Vassilis and his family. If you are looking for a good quality locally run Cafe Bar there is only one place to frequent and that's Yria Cafe on the main road opposite the Ionian Star Hotel. You won't be disappointed.

p.s. Check out the food menu too, great choice for breakfast or lunch and not forgetting some amazing ice creams and deserts also freshly made Crepes (seclick to enlargerved until very late).

We'll be back in Alykes (yet again) in August and staying at Yria, def. the best Mythos in Alykes served in a welcoming environment so, if you are visiting Alykes this summer, Yria is a must, excellent breakfasts, snacks etc.etc.etc. and with the British /American rock music you are sure to feel "at home".
