Restaurants in Alykes

Another great holiday in Alikes. Always eat at Zorbas, The food is all home cooked by Billy, the kitchen is exposed to the diners, who wander in and out for a chat. Debbie is a great host along with her double act Tony.Gets very busy, and a lot of  guests are regulars, who eat there every night. Cannot fault one thing about this Taverna, from the excellant food down to the hospitality. Will be back in 2012. Barbara and John.

My wife and I have just returned from our ninth year holiday in Alikes in Zanty we have eating in most of the tavernas in Alikes yes they are all are for very good for food and service but for price and service one stands out for us the most it is ZORBAS its run by Billy and Debbie and Tony Debbie is married to Billy and she comes from the north east of England a place called Lanchester in county Durham and has been with Billy a long time and still has her Geordie accent so you always in for a good friendly welcome she always tries to have a friendly chat to all who go in to eat there Billy cooks and Tony help with the waiting on tables and he always has a friendly word to all so don't just look at the menu and walk past go in and try a meal you will not be disappointed on the food and most of all the price and the welcome ZORBAS is the best of all.

  Excellent service.  Grill is brill for meat.  Enjoyed watching the horses and carts driving past.  This kept my children entertained.  The children loved the chicken nuggets.  Normally I am not a fan of these as the meat can be reformed rubbish but they were nice chicken in breadcrumbs so we felt happy when they picked these every so often.  Lovely main meals.  Only disappointment was the range of desserts- after visiting a couple of times we did miss having more to choose from.

Spent 3 weeks in Alykes and ate most of the time at Zorbas after experiencing many other places but, decided Zorbas was the best! The food here was great and would highly recommend this restaurant. For anyone looking to sample the local cuisine I recommend the beef stifado, kelftiko, chicken giros, grilled feta, Greek salad, Souvlaki and of course the local wine. Also the honey glazed local pork chops and chicken, minted lamb chop, fish and mixed grill were excellent and catered for all tastes. For desert, the baklava, apple pie and death by chocolate were good but, my favourite was Debbie's home made sticky toffee pudding and ice cream!! Yum Yum!! Added to this there was a nice friendly, Greek atmosphere in which families, couples and single people alike enjoyed, (with many people often returning to eat there). Cannot wait to go back when we next return to Alykes!!

Hello to owners Billy & Debbie and to Tony the waiter. xx

I would recommend the kleftico here.  It's very tender and tasty.  My husband loves their mixed grill (and he's a bit of an expert on meat).

The service is excellent and the place has a nice, relaxed, friendly feel to it.  The prices are extremely reasonable.

Hi to Debbie, Billy and Staff

We ate at Zorbas several times during our stay in Alykes, August 9-23. and no-one in our party had a bad meal.
I can recommend the beef stifado, lamb kleftiko, mousaka and the pork souvlaki. The meals were tasty, traditional, well presented and filling.
Well worth a visit

Another year and Zorbas only gets better.  Many thanks to Debbie, Billy, Makis and Katarina for looking after us so well.  The food and the company are exemplary and the house red takes quite a bit of beating as well!

It does not matter what you select from the menu, it will be well prepared, beautifully cooked and presented.  Our favourites this year included the Mount Olympus salad, spit roasted chicken, stifado, Zante beef, chicken gyros, lamb chops etc, etc, etc... Do we need to say more?  You can eat here every night and we did, without ever repeating your choice.
Hightly recommended by all in our party.

 We loved the food at Zorba's must have went three nights on the trot, you can not fault the food the Beef stifado is to die for ...

 Well done to whoever the last person was! Were you paid by 'relax' to write that report!!!!  

We really enjoyed ourselves at ZORBAS! The chips we ate brought back memories of proper home made chips! Not greasy at all, just divine! They were lovely! Just how chips should be! And the honey glazed chicken was melt in the mouth delicious! 
We ate there every night! And thats saying something, from someone who normally likes to try a different place every night on holiday!

THE BEST WELCOME in Alykes from Debbie, Billy and Makis, as usual.  Two weeks of the best food in town with our particular favourite menu choices being the honey glazed chicken, caesar salad, chicken gyros and of course moussaka.

This is our favourite resort on Zakynthos and Zorbas is our favourite taverna so we hope to be back again next year.

Italian side:
Prezzi sempre ottimi, come la memoria dei proprietari. Si son ricordati di noi anche se erano passati due anni dalla nostra ultima visita. Il cibo eccezionale, per nulla grasso e molto nutriente. E la Mythos un vero Mito !!!
English side:
Price and meal are very ok, just like the memory of the owners. They recognize us immediately! And the beer is a real Myth (os)
The address: Zorbas Taverna - Alykes Road - Alykes (Zakynthos)

Yes, a genuine Greek taverna! In fact, one of the original Tavernas in Alykes! Zorbas has an extensive and authentic menu, provides very friendly service and beautiful home cooked food. We were made to feel very welcome every night. With Debbie and Makis at the helm and Billy at the grill, there is a really good atmostphere! If I was to go back and choose my favourite meal, for me personally it would have to be the stuffed tomatoes for starters, honey glazed chicken (mmmmmm melt in the mouth!) for main and crepes for dessert! Zorbas is very clean, caters for children and offers excellent value for money. I would definitely recommend it to anyone!

We found the food and staff excellent , very attentive to our every need thanks and see you again,Bob and Heather Boon

Been going to Alykes for many years.  Eaten in Zorbas many times, was always good.  However, last year went to eat there and the greek owner came out and was very abusive and told us to leave because he didn't want us in there because we had eaten in the Relax!  This was very upsetting my for wife and I and very embarrassing for the two us.  We have many friend in Alyseks and all our family go to Alykes, but will now never eat there again. We will never certainly never go there again.  SO BE WARN, if he finds out you eat somewhere else during your stay you will not be welcomed!!!

Brian D           

Have to be fair and say that we only dined there once, but once was enough!

I have never tasted Kleftico like that in my puff!! Scraggy bits of meat, in a chillie type tomato sauce! Yuk!
My wife wasn't overly impressed with her meal either.
Possibly just an off night, but on the strength of that one visit, and with so many good alternatives, we dined elsewhere for the rest of our vacation.

We have just come back from Alykes and enjoyed every minute of the holiday. We can recommend a great friendly restaurant called Zorba's, run by Debbie, Billy and Costas. They made us feel very welcome and the food was fantastic and we would like to say HI! and send our love and hope to see you again soon. Yammas x Love from Kev & Dee.

just back from alykes 22/05/2005,and we tried a different place each night. zorbas was about the best for service,cost and menu,although it was a close run thing with dennis and apollo.

Ooops... somehow my comment didn't go on. Well anyway:
Zorbas is a fantastic place to go to relax and to eat good home cooked food. The staff and the owners (a Greek & English couple) are very welcoming, relaxed, friendly, chatty and professional. What more could you ask! If you don't want to try the delicious Greek food there is a range for the traditional English tummy too.
We were only in Alykes for a short while unfortunately but once we'd found Zorba's we stuck with it. Not very adventurous you might think, but if it's not broke don't fix it! I love resaurants and this is a good one, good value too.
The owner told us that there are now 40 places to eat in Alykes, which seems a lot for the amount of trade around. Well good luck to Zorba's (which was one of the originals) It's a lovely place and helped to make our holiday. I'll be back.
Highly Recommended, Thank you !
