The Greek dining experience extends beyond just food and wine; it also includes a tantalizing array of cocktails inspired by the vibrant culture of Greece.  Sip on a sweet and nutty Hades ($20) infused with flavours of blackberry and sambucca, or indulge in a boozy Demeter ($20), a classic riff of Martini using Greek gin, Skinos, Noilly Prat, and a taste fo Greece's iconic anise- flavoured spirit, Ouzo. 

While Zorba offers an upscale dining experience, the prices are reasonable considering the quality of the food and the portion sizes. Diners can expect to pay slightly higher than average for Greek cuisine in Singapore, but it is value for money given the authentic flavours and cosy ambiance.
