EATZante offers a great diversity of choice when eating out. Traditional mountain villages reveal hidden treasures of local cuisine; try ‘Kokkinisto’, a
slow cooked beef stew in a rich tomato sauce fragrant with spices, or ‘Kleftico’, lamb cooked in a traditional earthenware pot exactly as it was in years past.
Grill houses are dotted along village roads and throughout Zante Town where barbecued ‘Souvlaki’ and ‘Gyros’ can be enjoyed, sitting side by side with the local people. during recent years there has been an upsurge in fine dining restaurants offering Greek favourites with a contemporary twist, so tradition now sits shoulder to shoulder with modern. Greek favourites such as ‘Baclava’ with its rich syrup drenched filo pastry and crunchy nut filling have not been forgotten; or why not try the popular speciality of Zante, ‘Frigania’? A syrup soaked biscuit base, custard filling and whipped cream topping make this a must for every sweet tooth.
SEE Zante is a green and verdant island, even in the hot summer months, attracting visitors from near and far with its idyllic scenery and generous hospitality. Experience breath-taking sunsets from mountain villages, natural cave formations, and the crystal-clear Ionian Sea, which draws the protected Loggerhead turtles back year after year. You will never visit a Greek island closer to Kefalonia, an easy island hop away, or to Ancient Olympia on the Greek mainland, a site steeped in history and myth.
DO Surrounded by the sparkling, clear waters of the Ionian Sea, boat trips are a must for every visitor. experience the stunning turquoise water in the Blue Caves, the rock formations of Keri Caves, and, of course, the famous Shipwreck Cove, backdropped by towering cliffs. Take your own private motor boat for a relaxing day out and visit the white sands of the island of Marathonissi in the Bay of Laganas, turtle spotting along the way. In the evening, stroll along the port in Zante Town and enjoy a cocktail in the main square, or travel to Bocchali, the famous viewpoint above the town, and watch the twinkling lights of the restaurants and bars far below.
