The service was non existent, first starter came out with no cutlery, and the second starter came out 15 minutes later … The “authentic” Greek cuisine was a processed chicken souvlaki ( the first we’ve had n 3 weeks!) with what tastes like frozen fries...and a green salad that had almost no lettuce … sadly it left a very bad taste … Such a beautiful place and sadly not a decent restaurant in sight! Stick to simple snack food and it’s great!More

Simplicity! I love the atmosphere, the fresh food, the authenticity. Like living Greece in the 60's or 70's. Great, authentic place.

A simple tavern in the heart of the city. We taste souvlaki and it was not something special. It was small and with not too much taste.

I just love sitting here looking forward to being served with the most lovely chargrilled food. The chicken souvlaki is mouth watering but the pork steak which is really a big chop if possible is even better. The house wine is also perfect. Whole experience...enjoyable every time. & there were a fewMore

Everything is was super slow and nobody informed us about it. The food was decent and the staff not the friendliest. If its crowded, I would not recommend. Otherwise, it could be a decent choice.

Even thought we visit Ithaca for years, this year my girlfriend was craving for a souvlaki. We asked around and everyone recommended Zois and they were not wrong. Very clean place with the most delicious souvlaki and kontosouvli. We also had fries which asked to...add extra oregano and two times we went there we had a great dinner. We did not seat in so I have no opinion about the service but you will not get disappointed with the food. Looking forward for next year.More

Unfriendly and really slow service. Bad quality of meat. The french fries were cooked in a overused oil. Nice location thought

Zois is a family run grill. High quality food, very reasonably priced. Always a warm welcome. During cold weather you can eat inside and watch the food being grilled and all the local people coming to collect their takeaway. During the summer, eat outside in...the square and enjoy the warm evenings. We've done both.More

Located right on the square of Vathy, is this family run business and truly great flavors to all. Service and food is as one would expect when visiting Ithaki. The prices are within the local expectations. Portions are generious and the flavors are just perfect....Dined many times, and would return.More

Zois' is situated next to the Main Square in Vathi. Great location as local people with their children congregate around there in the evenings, it gives the place a really Greek feel and its good to see children having fun. The food is excellent as...is the service, it is also very reasonably priced. The wine is pretty good as well. Definitely a place to eat. Families will love it.More
