Unwind with a meal at 24/7 The Chill Out Place

If you’re looking for somewhere to relax then this family run restaurant is ideal. You can sit inside to cool down while you sample some of the tasty dishes on the menu and make use of the free WiFi. If you are on your way to visit one of the local attractions you can also use the takeout menu or even have food delivered to your apartment. The menu includes some of the more popular Greek delicacies, but also has some meals with an international twist.

Watch the sun set from restaurant Anadalis

After a long day, a good way to wind down and enjoy some wonderful food is to try the restaurant Anadalis. It is important that you book a table early to ensure that you nab one by the sea so you can enjoy the food while watching the sunset. The restaurant serves pre-dinner cocktails and the menu comprises popular Greek and Mediterranean food, matched with excellent service.

Cool and fashionable Peppermint

In common with many of the best restaurants in Argassi, Peppermint is only open from 6pm till midnight. The Peppermint is not only romantic, but also caters for people with families. Most of the dishes are made up with ingredients from the restaurant’s own vegetable garden and locally sourced fish and meat. The atmosphere is enhanced with traditional Greek music and they even serve their own homemade liqueur.

Delicious delights at Papillon restaurant

This very popular restaurant is well worth a visit. Pizzas from its wood-burning oven are delicious, or sample one of the many other delicacies on the menu. The sea bass is exquisite and the restaurant’s succulent steaks, washed down with some local wine, are fantastic. The restaurant does get busy so it’s worth booking a table if you fancy a little taste of Italy during your holidays to Greece.

Admire the views from Serenity Roof Garden Restaurant

If you are looking for somewhere special to eat, this stunning roof garden restaurant is great for a treat or a celebration. With an international menu and wonderful views, you can sit and enjoy your meal while planning the days ahead. Open from early morning till midnight, you will be able to have a light breakfast or a succulent fish dish.

Traditional Greek feasts at the Granada Taverna

If you want to try some traditional Greek fare, book a table at this relaxing restaurant. Sample the Papoutsakia – aubergine stuffed with beef mince – or order something that’s not on the menu and the staff will do their best to cater to you. As with most restaurants in Argassi there is comfortable outdoor seating and great views of the surrounding area.

Carnivores welcome at Ethnic restaurant

If you are a great meat eater then this restaurant won’t let you down. You can choose a generous T-bone steak or a rack of lamb – all of these come with crispy chips, a garlic mayonnaise dip and salad.

Memories of home at The Space Academy

If you’re missing home cooking on your holidays to Zante then a visit to the Space Academy may well be in order. Even though you’re in Greece it doesn’t mean you have to go without a touch of British food in-between some of the local delicacies. As the name of the restaurant hints at, there is plenty of room inside and on the balcony so it isn’t essential to book ahead, though forward thinking is always advisable.

Watch the sea at the Waves restaurant

This water’s edge restaurant has some wonderful views of sunsets and the various shades of oranges and reds will amaze you. You can lie on a sun bed and dip your feet in the sea while eating and drinking from this popular food outlet and bar.
