Summer, in other words, means “Prosilio”, the new restaurant to appear just besides the square of Solomos, in the center of Zakynthos town. The minimal interior with the open kitchen is just a welcome in a beautiful, ambient garden, with floral touches and an exotic Moroccan corner to enjoy the house cocktails, all with Zakynthian names. Who can say no to such a “Vegera”? (Vegera means invitation in Zakynthian language / house cocktail with Amorgian baked raki, molasses and ginger liqueur).
