RE: BOOKING AT ATHINA we have just spoken to yanni at athina this morning and he has told us that athina is closed at the moment due to kosmar pulling out of argassi, he says that they are looking to go with another company but as yet they have not found one. will post again any further news if tour company has been found. the timotheos in argassi is not athina it is the stars appartments that have been there years.
we have just come home from zante on 25.09.05 and we stayed at the elpida what a great place clean,tidy,friendly people,brilliant pool. the owners denis and denise are lovely people we never got to meet their son as he was at university. but we did get to meet we did get to meet the lovely mimi she is off her head!!! one crazy lady but an angel and will do anything to help, if you have any queries she is the one to go to as her english is brill. the food at elpida was good sometimes the white of eggs on the breakfast a bit under cooked but hey just scrape it off!!. i recommend the club sandwich its to die for yum yum. zante was yet again lovely a few cloudy days but great. plenty of good places to eat we recommend the romanza which is on ya way down the beach and mantalena and medousa they did a beautiful fish platter. we also ate at the greedy greek and got the greek meze for two was very nice only thing was you got different meats but they all had the same sauce on them but it was nice all the same but very big. we would go back to alikanas and also elpida anytime lovely lovely place. thank you to mimi denis and denise for a lovely time xx ps if buying olive oil go to the little shop below catacomes bar,its their own olive oil that they have pressed and its beautiful the bar above is also very good plays great music and good drinks at a good price!!! great people too xxxx
we ate on our first night after arriving at the elpida just a couple of doors away we went there as it was close to where we were staying and we were tired and just wanted a warm meal and then to bed. the food was ok and thats all i can say but then every night we passed the resturant the man was nearly begging us to go in, to be honest he was a pain in the a**e!!!!!. go at your peril!!!! he will not leave you alone if you have to walk past evey night!!!!!
anytime nicky pat n charley yet again another great time on hol wi thee
We ate here a few times and found the service great and the food was great it is like a tradtional greek taverna should be. Great place
My husabnd found this little place as he went for a stroll into Alikes from Alikanas he said he liked the look of it even though it was closed. so that night off we set into Alikes and had one of the best meals ever Spit Roasted Lamb FANTASTIC the portion size was HUGE but every piece of lamb melted in your mouth. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO ALL LAMB LOVERS.We had a slight confussion over what size house wine we wanted but it was'nt WASTED!!!!. Keep it up SKIPPY!!!!!.If we visit Alikanas again we will be back for sure!!
