A true gem

Wonderful restaurant in a quiet street just off the main square in Zakinthos. Beautiful interior and exterior setting. Separate vegan menu with at least 3-4 options for each course. There is a dedicated veggie/vegan chef. Everyone who works here seems to love their job and they always took their time to make us feel welcomed. 5 stars, we will be back.

Reserve a table if you want to eat in the garden

If you go there during the summer season you should reserve a table in their outside area, we didnt reserve but still got a nice table but it was on the street. They have an extra menu for vegan dishes and i had the Risotto and the chocolate dessert and both were very good. My Mom had the vegan Moussaka and it was also very delicious

Pros: extra menu, nice staff, the local beer

Vegan dream.

I couldn’t eat much in Zante and they provided a whole vegan menu. It’s on the pricier side but so worth it!

Pros: The decor was beautiful. , Attentive friendly staff. , The food and wine!

Cons: Could possibly be slightly cheaper.

Absolutely Delicious

Yard of taste was an absolute treat! The vegan gyros were honestly delicious. The restaurant being in a great location just off the main square in Zakhynthos Main Town. The staff are super kind and knowledgeable on the subject. The decor in the restaurant is lovely. Portions are small for the price comparatively to other places but definitely worth a visit if you would like to treat yourself.

Pros: Food, Decor, Staff

Cons: Pricey

Beste vegane Essen auf der Insel

Sie haben eine extra vegane Karte und das Essen ist einfach traumhaft. Sehr gut abgestimmtes Essen, netter Service und schöne Location .
Ein wenig teurer aber absolut verdient !

Amazing owner, just let her surprise you

Maybe there is no clear vegan menu, but Iota, the owner, can adapt any plate and has many options available. Vegan feta cheese, quinoa salad, mushrooms, hummus, an amazing chickpea stew, etc. And it's also the perfect place to go if you are allergic or intolerant to anything.
In my opinion, the best thing is to tell her what kind of diet you follow and let her surprise you. I've done it a couple of times and I only regret the times I asked something from the menu. Wow.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, just outside of the menu, Amaaaazing food, Really nice staff

Cons: A little bit expensive, The vegan options are out of the menu, need to ask

Would give 5 stars!

Maybe my favourite meal of my trip! They didn’t have the vegan feta appetiser on the menu, but had a vegan appetiser of the day that was a sort of mushroom bruschetta and it was great, then the mushroom orzo was as wonderful as other reviews said, and THEN the “juicy chocolate cake” (more like brownie batter pudding) was also amazing. Fancier than I expected so I was underdressed haha

Would give 5 if it would let me!

We are here on our first night. They were so accommodating to a Vegan diet and it's honestly some of, if not, the best food I've ever had in my life.

The only reason it won't let me give 5* is because the restaurant isn't fully Vegan, which is fair enough.

But yeah, eat here, best vegan food I've had in a long time.

Pros: Vegan options were amazing

Cons: No complaints at all.

I had the mushroom risotto and it was - hands down - the best risotto i‘ve ever had! This was pure perfection - so definitely take this if you‘re up for pure deliciousness. 😅 as Appetizer we shared the vegan feta in oat crust which was also on point.

At yard of taste you don‘t just get random food, you get a perfection of flavors.

Pros: Wow-effect after first bite! , Separate vegan menu

Cons: A Bit pricey!

The best vegan moussaka

I asked them if they had some vegan dishes, the lovely and kind staff immediately got me their vegan menu full of amazing Greek dishes. I chose the vegan moussaka, I’ve never had it, so it was a first, and I must say, wow. They even put a little salad on the side. Truly delicious, flavourful.

Very good

As you walk in the city of Zakynthos there is a restaurant stationed between some streets.
This restaurant does not have a large Vegan menu, but still has several options.

It was not clear at first what could be made Vegan on the physical menu. The menu is also available on there website (marking with 'VG' what's Vegan). There are some dishes that are not shown on the website which could be made Vegan as well. If you ask a waiter they can perfectly tell what items can be made either Vegetarian or Vegan.

The dishes we ate:
Starter: Feta in Oat Crust (is not shows on the menu as Vegan, but can be made so).
Main dish 1: Quinoa Trilogy
Main dish 2: Moussaka
