Restaurants in Alykes

I expected so much more from this yesterday.

this resturtnat was expensive and is over rated. this is not the bet resturant in town. the resturant is well staffed and the service is good but the food is average greek and does not reflect the high prices (in relation to the other resturants ) that they charge. this resturant is a long trek from the Nikos appratments and not worth the walk.

Our Lovely Family! What can i say? Paradosaiko is the absolute BEST restaurant in Alykes/Alykanas. Weve been the last 3 years and ate every night at the restaurant, how could we resist, the food was absolutly fantastic as always! Never tasted food like it in all my 14 years!  Were so close to the workers George & Sanday and we hope to see George and his lovely wife in the winter as they may be coming up to stay for a week with me and my family.  Thankyou so much, you made our Holiday once again! Hope to see you all soon! Yasmin and Family x




This restaurant is always packed and I can completely understand why. We had the best meal of our holiday in here and couldn't believe how amazing the food was. I had roast chicken and had no idea that it could taste that good. The portions are big, served with the usual salad, rice and roast potatoes which all taste so fresh and well made. Everything here was delicious. If you enjoy chocolatey puddings you've got to try the Oreo cookie base one they serve here. It was incredible. Fruit salad was beautiful too.
The restaurant itself is very relaxing and romantic.
 The staff were all so friendly and the service was great.
Btw If you're a big rock/metal music fan you should get chatting to Andreas. He has a very wide music taste and a massive record collection so we sat gabbing for ages. Great guy!!

Simply the best restaurant in the resort/s

Richard O           

The best restaraunt in Alykes/Alykanas. It gets very very busy so you need to get here early. Lovely setting, lovely food, lovely people. Hope to get her again this year but we are staying in Kalamaki this time.

Julian P           

Very busy, including a number of locals so it can't be bad. Unfortunately the service suffered. I appreciate this is Greece and things are a little slower but after waiting 45 minutes for a desert menu we had to ask someone, and then it took 30 minutes to deliver a couple of simple deserts - it got so late the kids were falling asleep. Shame, as it's a nice place with good food.

Sue L           

Food was great, waiters lovely, will go back next year when we visit again.  Sue, Jess, Annette (40 tops according to Yannis) and Judi x

Barry J           

We stayed in Alykanas but the walk to this place is well worth it, even for the smell of the food alone.  The food and service is excellent and definintely worth a visit.

Brian D           

Excellent authentic Greek food at reasonable prices.

Great ambience, lovely view, and good service.
Try it... you won't be disappointed.

Helen A           

This is a big thank you from the lady who had fallen and hurt her foot on the way to the restaurant, thought it would be ok after the meal and soon realised there was no way I was going to be able walk home. The manageress (sorry dont know your name) was very kind and gave me and my husband a lift back to our hotel. I was in a lot of pain and extremely upset at the time, but looking forward to coming back next year to say a proper thank you!

Excellent as always

Mark S           

If you want excellent food (Greek) at good prices and a super location then this is the place. It's away from the main village but worth the extra effort (about 3 minutes from the Jungle Bar). We ate there 4 times and were never dissapointed. Go there late and it gets full with with locals and Greeks on holiday, a fantastic atmosphere. Brilliant

Jan C           

Top class food lovely setting , excellent price , we stayed in alykanas last year and didnt try , now i know what we missed

Roy B           

Cheapest restaurant we ate in and (close run thing with Mantalena in Alykanas) probably the best.

Superb food - Kleftiko to die for.  Another one not to be missed.

Kathy H           

As ever, the best beef stifado i have had during the 2 weeks in Alikanas. The kids meals were very nice too. Have had 12 holidays in Alikanas and have never had a bad meal here!


We go every year and as usual still one of the best!

Les K           

Come here in the week as it is a popular location for weddings at weekends.  Garlic Bread with Cheese is simply the best, you only need one between two people as it comes on a large Baguette, rather filling !!  Stuffed Pork was on the Special Menu at E5 (about 3.60p !!), the meat was cooked so well it fell to pieces.  It was WELL worth the walk from Alykanas, certainly the cheapest meal we had during our two week stay.

Suzi D           

this place was lovely. i had kokkinisto (beef stew) and it was delicious. quick service, nice food and kittens! what more do you want? it isn't so intimate as other places and the turnaround is quick (you'll have to wait if you arrive after 8pm) but the prices are good for the standard of food you get.

Carl W           

Absolutely fantastic restaurant, on the main road between Alykes and Alykanas... We went twice in the week and couldn't ask for any better. The service was excellent, the atmosphere was excellent, and it was one of the cheaper restaurants that we ate in.

I found the stuffed pork dish (can't for the life of me remember the greek name) to be exceptionally nice, and the garlic bread was the best we found too.


In a word....EXCELLENT!
One of the most traditional tavernas in the area traditional. It is very busy & it would be advisable to book a table.

Peter M           

Quite simply the best restaurant we ate in! An excellent meal, friendly service and not too expensive. Be warned, it is very popular so if you don't book you may have to wait for a table although it would be worth it.

David B           

Hi - just back from Alikanas and would give the Paradisiako Restuarant top marks. Excellent service with a wide choice of menu. The food was always good as was the service. Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this taverna to anyone visiting.

Max P           

A short walk on from Alikanas. Runs the Mantelena a close second for the quality and flavour of its Greek food. Lovely house wine. Doesn't quite have the atmosphere of other places. Its a bit out on a limb, but worth the trip.

Gary C           

Probably the best taverna we ate in. The food was very good and service excellent. Had a free litre of wine with token from Its about 150m from footbridge on Alykes to Alikanas road.

Peter C           

I would love to keep this place a secret but it is just too good. Fantastic authentic Greek cuisine. Best restaurant in Alykes/Alykanas. You really must try it.

Jan & Rebecca           

This was the best restaurant in Alykes and there are many great places to eat in this resort. Great memories of our nights spent here.
Special thanks to MARIO, DENNIS and YIANNIS for making it that little bit more special.
We were here 14 - 28 July 2004 staying at Koukounaria.

Lynda K           

Just got back and this place was fantastic! We ate there nearly every night. The service is fast and the food is the best. Prices are very good (fillet steak 10.50 euros).



Maria & Tony           

For good greek food in a lovely setting,we would recommend this

Clifford F           

Brilliant, is the only word to describe this restaurant, the service was the best, the food hot and tasty (the best stifado I have ever had)not surprisingly it was the busiest restaurant in Alykes.

Richard O           

This was our favourite place in Alykes and Alikanas, Every meal superb whether you have local greek dishes or other fayre. The fact that it is full every night tells its own story as well. clean and a lovely setting overlooking the river midway between alykes and alykanas, without doubt the best.


Excellent restaurant. Nice setting, good food and seems slightly cheaper than most.

Stephen C           

the best 2 adults/2 children three courses each (not the cheapest)
two rounds of drinks coke/beer 42 euros and you felt you had eaten

Vinny &           

The best restaurant in Alykes by far ! We ate there on 4 occasions and each time the food, ambiance and the atmosphere just got better ! The meze for 2 was superb and sums up just what Greek food is all about. We ate traditional Greek dishes on all 4 occasions and we were not disappointed - by far the best meal was the traditional Zakynthion beef stew, which just melted in the mouth ! The best Rose wine is surely served her also ! The quality of the food was rivalled only by the Psaropoula restaurant in Alykanas. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming, and what made this location special was the horse and cart repeatedly going past offering some light entertainment ! "I'll Be Back" & "Hasta La Vista" spring to mind !

Cherylle & Azad           

The moussaka was lovely but the stifado was distinctly average. Staff to busy trying to 'eye up' tables to re-lay to make guests feel welcome. Lovely setting.

Sue P           

Our favourite restaurant during our recent visit. The staff are friendly and helpful and the service quick. The quality of the food was superb. We had the Greek Mezes which was the best starter I have ever had, as were the dolmades. I had the "pork exochico" which had a tasty stuffing of peppers, onions and feta, the meat was very tender and plentiful. We also tried the "lamb kleftico" and the "red snapper" which was excellent. The whole experience of eating at this restaurant was a 100% pleasure and I thoroughly recommend it for its quality.

A K           

excellent place,staff were excellent,food great,the meze for 2 starter is worth going there for on its own


The best place to eat in Alikanas or Alikes. We ate here 8/14 nights and it would have been every night had we found it earlier. Very friendly staff, beautiful food (esp. the stuffed tomatoes and stifado) and very cheap aswell.

F. K           

This is my favourite restaurant in Alykes. The setting is idyllic and very peaceful. The original greek food is delicious and the prices are incredibly cheap. Everyone was friendly and polite and i would recommend anyone to eat here!

Suzanne B           

This was definitely our favourite place to eat in Alykes. Lovely setting, friendly service and fried courgettes and aubergines to die for!! We especially enjoyed the cosmopolitan atmosphere; well worth a visit... or two... or three...!

Gary S           

What else can be said.......this is the best restaurant by far in Alykes. We ate here four times and it was superb every time. The food and location was superb, the staff excellent. People do queue to get in here but it is worth the wait!

Amanda H

Alicia O

The L           

We loved it - great service, superb food and very reasonable prices.


spot on here. nice setting and a bit cheaper than elsewhere

Paul B           

My wife and I have been to the restaurant every night of out 2 week holiday for the last 3 years. Would never dream of going anywhere else to eat. It does get busy but that adds to the atmosphere and the staff cater with the workload very well. If you want something special try this one. Can't comment on an indvidual dish 'cause I've tried everything on the menu over the years and its all wonderful -but try the chicken in cream !!!

Mike & Tracey           

I have read all the other excellent reports on this restaurant and whole heartedly agree. Excellent food, service and price. The atmosphere is lovely - located opposite the pie shack on the other side of the river between Alikes and Alykanas. The beef stifado was fantastic. Get there before 8 pm as it gets packed. Try this place first along with the Mill (in Alykanas)before the so called other Greek restaurants.

Lee R           

you will not find a better place to eat greek or english this was far the best place we found by far, set on its own away from the town but at 8pm its packed

Andy M           

We have just returned from a fortnight break in alykes, we tried loads of different places to eat and none of them touched this place. The stiffado was out of this world ,anyone going must try it or the zakynthian beef stew. Four of us had a great meal 1 kg of wine and two large vodkas for 38 euros, great value, and friendly staff. I hope i get the chance to eat there again one day.

Susan M           

It is a nice setting and the meal was nice, there is a parking area and you need to go early or late as people queue to go in.

Richard W           

we have spent the last 4 years going to alykes,and last year we attended a wedding at the paradosaiko(chris&lynn)and found a gem on zante.this is by far the best place to eat in alykes.will see you all in june(5th)for some more of the best food around;;

Sharon M

Back on september 10th 2003 see you then get that table resevered george! Love to you all xx

John B           

best restaurant by far in the resort. the food was excellent, especially all the greek dishes. the staff were very friendly (genuine)& nothing was too much trouble. the best bit though(especially for a tight a**e like me) was the bill at the end, or the lack of it. we went 3 times & the average price for 3 courses, best wine & liquor coffee was only 45 euros for two. for all you scousers......its not worth doing a runner.

M&j W           

WE visited this resaurant three times in our two weeks - including the last night. It came out top of the seven restaurants we visited for evening meals. Friendly, very good food, and pleasant surroundings. Excellent/

Nicky A           

The best restaraunt in alykes/alykanas by far. Our little boy Aiden absolutely fell in love with the waitressess. Will be sending you all a photo soon whenI get round to it. Thankyou for looking after him and babysitting him as he has mild autism and can be very difficult.It gave us and our daughter a break. Fantastic, friendly staff and excellent food all at reasonable prices in a nice location where you DON'T get bothered by rose sellers as you do in the centre.Nice wine too. Sat overlooking the river watching the horse and carriages go by, very idyllic. We loved it and are going back next July.Thankyou to you all for making our holiday very special. Nicky, Gerry, Laura and Aiden

We went here on recommendation and we were not disapointed. It is a bit of a 10 minute stroll from Alikes but well worth it. You need to arrive early as it fills up quickly such is its reputation for quality. Every meal we ate here was excellent and not over priced. The staff are all friendly and make you feel welcome. It's a must for a visit if you are staying nearby or just passing through.

Don M           

Easily the best restuarant serving greek food in Alikanas/Alikes. Well worth the walk from either locality. Could not fault the food or the staff, only wish we had eaten there more often rather than trying other so called Greek restuarants.

Karen T           

Went here twice during our stay and really wished we had gone more often. Easily the best restaurant in Alykanas/Alykes, well worth the stroll (about 10 mins from Alykanas. Would definitely recommend the swordfish, beef stifado and the pizzas!

Karen F           

We went there five time excellent food we had a lot of fresh fish there.It gets busy as the locals go there,the waiters are very nice.

Heather G           

Situated by the river on the way to Alykes(the opposite side of the river to the Pie Shack). Very good meals, nice bread. The waiters recognised us from last year and made us so welcome. The setting is idyllic and the toilets are very clean!! The portions look small but we were always full once we finished. The tuna salad was delicious as was the spaghettin in the oven.

Ian Q           

Went here on the recomendation of one of the local folk. Just out of town towards Alikanas, Great meal at reasonable prices. One of the best we had in two weeks !!
