Didn't knew about this restaurant before being invited to an anniversary. Loved the food which is fresh and tasty. But be careful- we ordered so many appetizers as they seem good when reading the menu (and after eating we didn't left a bite) so that when the main dish came we were already full... read more

We were searching for a nice new place to go for dinner with our family. Our preference is always towards sea food, Mediterranean food and pasta. Zavat offers a nice balance between prices and quality of its food. Definitely a good place. The serving could be improved though.

We just had a wonderful dinner with our friends at this taverna, the place is cozy, everything we ordered was very tasty, made us feel we were in Greece. you should order the fisherman soup (ciorba pescareasca), that one was fabulous... we ordered only fish and seafood for the main course and all of them were great. if i were...

The food is very good however the service is very slow as they had only one waitress for the floor who had to run around all night long. After a while u see the waitress in this condition u... More

Food was so and so..appetizers were delicious, 1 main course(out of 3) was delicious, the other 2 not so impressive as you might think (plus that we ordered salmon and we got catfish in 1 case) . The most disturbing thing was that even if we had a booking for a non smoker table, when we got there somebody was... More

Ciorba de peste is out of this world, like the one I used to eat in Danube Delta when I was a child. Then, they prepare the fish the way you want: grilled or fried . Just ask!

We like very much this restaurant. We go there whenever we want to celebrate something. It is a bit expensive but it's worth it :) Until now, I have tried: fried calamari, calamari stuffed with cheese, octopus, shrimps with garlic and butter, shrimps saganaki and tzarziki and they were all great. I highly recommend the place.
