Tel: 30 269 502 6346's insider take:

One of Zakynthos's unique local customs is its musical tradition of cantades—(serenades)—and arekia (folk songs sung in four parts). These are the soundtrack to any dining experience at Arekia, an old-school taverna where patrons (some of them in their 90s) sit on rug-covered picnic benches to wildly applaud enthusiastic local singers. The food here is almost secondary to the music, but the simple dishes—veal sofrito, fried zucchini balls—are welcome, especially once you've worked up an appetite singing (and drowned your inhibitions in the freely flowing homemade wine).

Closed November through March.
