Taverna "Vrisaki" right opposite Danny's supermarket is a must eat at venue too as well as the Cosy Corner. Alkionis turns out excellent food too, you'll always find some nice dishes at the "Chindian" as well. Across in old Alykanas the Lemon Tree (Psarapoula) Taverna is a must eat at venue as well, it's setting and decor are beautiful. The Mill Bar down on the beach is a great place to eat, sitting up above the bar area gives you terrific views across Alykes bay. Like Alykes the choice of eateries is vast and I'm sure you'll soon find you're own favourite once you find your feet.

Yes, so many to choose from. We love Paradaisakio at the riverside, also Carissimo near White House studios, really special food at these two establishments :)

Tony/Sophia thanks for your replies just me and the wife going this year so we decided this year we could have a nice gentle stroll over to alykanas from the pothos to try some restaurants. We always do cosy and paradaisakio but with all the other ones you have mentioned looks like we will be spending quite a few nights over in alykanas thanks again  ;)

Vrisaki all day long scrivo, loads of good places to eat in Alykanas but Vrisaki is head and shoulders above the opposition.

We`re really crossing the border in May. Unfortunately we can`t do the trek down to Gatwick any longer so have decided to try Corfu this year.  :( We only live 8 miles from Robin Hood but 200+ from Gatwick. The flights to Zante from Doncaster are ridiculously priced so that`s how we came to our decision.

We don't live too far from Doncaster airport and know where you're coming from with their rip off prices. We travel over to Liverpool for the cheap EasyJet deals. Booking when their new flight schedule release dates come out gets you the best deal. We're booked in twice this year from Liverpool, only an hour and a half run at 4am in the morning.

We're the same with Liverpool. We're a bit nearer to Doncaster than Liverpool but East Mids is a lot more convenient but that too is very expensive. We use Liverpool for the EJ flights. Fairly easy to get to, especially for a 730am flight. We're trying a night at the travellinn right next to the airport this year for a change. At 35 for a family room, we had to give it a try if only to see if it's easier.

That's like us.  We're about 10 miles from Robin Hood but can easily pay 300 more for us to fly from Finningley against travelling to Manchester.     We get free rail travel which helps, but even paying for an overnight stay at the Crowne Plaza, we're quids in and the flight times are better too.
