Only the highest marks for this restaurant, although we normally eat at many restaurants during our holidays we kept on coming back to this one. All the staff were great and the Greek evenings were fantastic. Authentic food, great wines - even the house white was much better than average and all at great prices. Free Greek lessons from Andreaos to all willing customers. Only sorry we couldn't get there on our last night to say our goodbyes as our daughter was ill, but if we go back to Zante then this is one restaurant we will definitely be returning to.
I had hoped on reading the reviews that there might be another Olive Tree as the one we visited certainly didn't merit such high marks as the ones here. We arrived at the restaurant and were recommended the special chicken by the waiter and our daughter ordered a childs kebab from the childrens menu. Less than 5 minutes later our meals arrived, and although perfectly edible it was obvious they had been cooked earlier and reheated/kept warm until ordered. The childs kebab was also extremely tough. In all this is the only restaurant that I wouldn't recommend based on our experience, but if you do go then please don't order a special meal order something that you fell stands a chance of having to be prepared for you not just pulled out of the oven when required.
We visited this bar several times during our visit and were always made very welcome, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Without exception everyone was friendly and spoke great english, although if you used a few words of Greek it was always greatly welcomed. Even on the one bad weather day it was great as it had board games such as Draughts, Backgammon , connect 4 etc readily available for all to use.
