IloveYo: A milkshake wonderland review.

IloveYo, YoCo Renamed and rebranded! So as you may have guessed from my extensive collection of Greece, Zante and Argassi posts; we have been here before. We have our favourite spots and last year we found a lovely milkshake parlour called YoCo, you can see the review on lousnews if you want. Well we decided we had to go back and after arranging a trip to Zante town to visit the farmers market we just had to drop in. We indeed made our way after the market although had a shock once we got there, a face-lift is an understatement. YoCo is no more, ILoveYo has been resurrected in its place. Although the same structure has been kept to the shop and they still do amazing milkshakes and frozen yoghurt. So much more has been added. A small change would be the new tables and chairs outside, they fit well…

24/7 chillout place, the all nighter we need

The amazing wonders of the 24/7 chillout place! So for the last three years now I have been coming to Greece and it is apparent to say that I have found some amazing places and keep going back. 24/7 chillout place is one of these amazing and friendly places where I always leave with a smile. I have spent four weeks in Greece now and need to admit I have eaten at the chill out place easily a minimum of ten times! Okay so the food is not only good and consistent, the staff are really friendly and as the name suggests chilled out. Let us talk about the food first though. Like I said it is consistent, the food always comes out really nice and the correct temperature depending on what you want. They have a very extensive menu and you can literally pick anything from a gryos wrap…

The Diana Palace: Hotel travel destination

The Diana Palace, updated and upgraded. So this year was our third year at the amazing Diana Palace situated in Argassi, on Zante Island. We have stopped at this hotel now for three years, it is that good! This year however we discovered that the Diana Palace had had on of the best face lifts I have ever seen, if you haven’t been before you will really want to now! You can find a recap of how amazing the Diana Palace is by clicking on the link in this sentence. I can tell you a couple of things however, the staff are still amazing as ever. They all have smiles on their faces and are so helpful, you would never find the amazing customer service in the UK; this is the place to go to be treated like a loving family member. So if you have stayed here before you…

San Marco, a one time fling.

San Marco, not as good as you would think. So we decided to give Zante town a little visit as we wanted to go to the amazing farmers fruit and veg market. While there we decided to take a short walk into the actual town and get a spot of lunch, not a huge one as we decided as it was our last full day we would have a massive dinner, as you do. We looked at a few places and instantly struck a few off the list after pestering people in the doorways. We saw San Marco in the main square and it looked busy, we decided to give it a go.  All I can say is that looks can be deceiving. We found our seats and took a look at the menu, while doing so a waitress swept past us with immense speed and we had been left…

Papillon, Greek food done right.

Papillon, Greek infused food goodness. So this time around we decided to try a few new restaurants. With new restaurants came new food, like garlic spiked mussels, but I will come to that later. We had a walk around Argassi and came across Papillon, just next door to Zorbas. We decided to give it a go at dinner time and see how well the place actually was, the boards outside made it look fantastic and so far they are the only place I know that does take away; I could be wrong but this made the place that little bit better for me. After all you don’t have Hungry House for Greece. We got shown to our seats by some very helpful staff, all smiles which is great. I find good service in Zante, Greece to be a little hit and miss. Some places we have been in are amazing,…
