When visiting Zante our biggest tip would definitely be do not go all inclusive - eating the same food every night would be a true Greek Tragedy. Zante is home to a huge variety of different cuisines ranging from classic local Greek cuisine to American styled diners. It's difficult to top a traditional Greek dining experience which is more than just food - historical plate smashing and fire dancing is a real thing and it's a must do to fully experience the Greek culture.
Enjoying the local cuisine is one of the main parts of travelling abroad, you simply have to try Greek food! Our top recommendatins include Greek Gyros (Greek styled kebab), Souvlaki, Moussaka, Lamb Kleftiko, Stuffed Peppers, Calamari & more - trust us when we say you will not regret trying these new dishes!

We all know and love a classic cheeky Nando’s, try Zante’s very own Peri Heaven located on Kalimaki road, its a twist on the classic Nando’s with a range of spices and a menu you may recognise it’s the perfect place to stop for a chicken wrap and get a taste of home. Some say its better than the original Nando’s, but you’ll have to try it for yourself…
Cool Peppers is one of Zante’s favourite hot spots for food, with it having a beach view it is the perfect venue to celebrate a special occasion, take a friend or partner on a date or line your stomach with the massive 2m rack of ribs before hitting the strip!

Panos is the place to visit if you want to get a taste of traditional Greek food, from moussaka to gyros, it’s the whole Greek experience… be sure to get down early as its always packed as the food is to die for! If you haven’t tried souvlaki, you must make sure to dine here once during your stay!
