Such a nice place located right next to the sea and harbour of Zakynthos. We were greeted and served with with a friendly and heart-warming attitude. Prices are very reasonable, because portions were big and tasty and clearly made with soul. We were also served...compilmentary dessert of the house (yogurt based cake with nuts and honey) which by this time had no name, so ask for it if you like greece cuisine. (: We had drunk art's pork meze, tzatziki, olives and house wine ourselves. Very much recommended!More

The Half menu was out! Food was terrible! The lamb and beef very tough! The preparation a disaster (I'm a chef from Austria myself)! The boss arrogant and self-loving! The worst food we had at Zakynthos! Absolutely not recommended! Do not understand the good reviews!...There are much better restaurants..!!More

When we went to Nostimon, we were excited to have a great dinner, due to the overall positive ratings online. When we arrived the manager welcomed us friendly while we studied the menu outside once more. He didn' t mention that some dishes were no...more available at that point of time. He told.us, if we do not like our meal, we pay nothing, because he serves the best greek cuisine. So far so good. When we decided to have a traditional dish, the manager told us, that this dish was not available anymore today. As six other dishes. Okay, if he had told us this when entering the tavern, we wouldn't enterrd the restaurant at all, because we had a specific dish in mind. But we were on holiday, happy and not that strict . Then we decided to ordered a different dish. Then he persuaded us to order a starter, when we finished our starter, he told me that my calamari on the grill was no more available, but fried calamari, i got sceptic. Why was grilled calamri not available and fried was? My boyfriend is a chef himslef and his thought was, that the fried calamri was frozen and therefore still available, while the fresh grilled option wasn't. Ok, at this very late time I decided to order the lamb as well ( as my boyfriend did). When my boyfriend got his very tough lamb, the manager told me, that my lamb would take more time, due to I ordered it later (haha silly me). When I finally received my meal, it was even tougher than the lamb before. But there was no staff inrested to come to out table and so we ate it, because we were really hungry after a long day at the beach. When we finished the lamb (more fat than meat) we asked for the bill. The manager took his time, laughed a lot ( a shame after his performance with most dishes no more available). Eventually he came and I tolf him that the lamn was tough, he told me that this was because it wss fresh meat, which is always tougher than mot fresh meat ( NO JOKE! - this was his explanation for the tough meat- not that to cook a lamb takes more time than it lasted to cook our dish). I told the guy that myboyfriend is a chef himself and that he knows the difference between tough and soft meat, which has nothing to do with the fresh meat as he tried to make fun of us. I asked him, what it was with his promise, no.like no pay. His answer was, that we had to tell him befor finishing the plate, than he would have served us something else ( haha which dishea were still availaible?? ). So I td him that he had almost none of the dishes I would like, he was pissed and gave no answer, even though it was a true criterion. Overall this was a very bad experience and I wouldn't recommend anyone to go there- go to Ammos Taverna, which is simply amahing and next to this very bad restaurant!More

We were really impressed with the food here and the service was excellent! The waiters were very friendly and great fun. Greek hospitality at its best! Wouldn’t hesitate to come back if returning to the area.

Really is a tourist trap. They coax you in with saying it’s good food but really it’s not the cheese I ordered was supposed to be oven baked. It was fried. At almost €9 for sardines on the grill I’d expect a lot better than...what they offeredMore

We where in june in Zakynthos and had no idea about Greece at all. its a lovely city and everywhere there are nice & kind people! As we where looking for some nice restaurant we had dinner at the restaurant next door on our first...night. It was nice but once we had dinner in Nostimon Imar we really had a special feeling about the restaurant & food. TOP service! the lady and the gentleman were so nice and kind made us feel really welcome. On our fist dinner here we had the nest damn that was SO GOOD! really recommendable! We also got a dessert which was much nicer as the one next door. The one next door was to sweet. As soon as we mentioned this, the gentleman informed the restaurant owner next door and then he come with a bottle home made Raki, it was so strong. the gentleman who serviced us came with a bottle and this was a very nice one! we enjoyed our evening also the owner of the restaurant next door was really nice! oin our last evening we came back to Nostimon Imar and we had even better experience. We just love it! Thank you for Aris & Wicky you are such nice, kind and lovely people! we had an amazing time in Zakynthos thanks to you guys! we would like to all of you to feel that feeling we had when we entered the restaurant it was just fantastic! We highly recommend Nostimon Imar and will be for sure coming back to visit you guys if we are in Zakynthos! Kind and best regards, Sofia & Bastiaan from the Netherlands!More
