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…

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,…

Angelos, the best tourist gift shop in Argassi.

Angelos, tourist and gift shop. Let me tell you about Angelos! Three years now we have been coming to the beautiful island that is Zante. Although you will see most of my travel reviews about restaurants I thought it was time to switch it up a little. There are so many tourist shops in Zante and quite a few in Argassi, on the top of my head I can count 10 but I’m sure there are more. We however on our very first trip found an amazing shop with the most amazing owners ever. You find that if you visit you will walk past a lot of shops and they will literally try and drag you in just to buy whatever they are pushing at the time. By the time they have finally convinced you to look about they decide that they best way to get you to spend your…

Peppermint, the hidden oasis of Argassi!

Let me tell you about a little hidden oasis that situates within the wonderful town of  Argassi, Peppermint. If you have read my other Greece articles, you will see that I love to try the various restaurants in the area where I stay. I wouldn’t have found out about this wonderful restaurant if it wasn’t for the amazing owner Katrina at the Diana Palace Hotel. She suggested that we try the Peppermint and booked us a table. We looked forward to trying somewhere that came so highly recommended. Now depending on how fast you walk, the Peppermint is located around 10/15 minutes from the hotel, this however is no problem because you can go for a nice walk in the heat and take in everything around you; to be fair if I knew how good the restaurant actually was I would have walked double! When we arrived we were greeted…
