“Excellent Fish Meze”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

This is where the locals go for fish meze so you allways get a good meal ! Service can be a little fast with fod arriving at your table every minute, tell the waiter to slow it down. Great food and good value for money, full of families and friends eating so a lively atmosphere.

“Good fish meze”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

I visited this place twice this summer and I must admit that the meze includes a good choice of well cooked fish. Only the squid was a bit unclean and rubbery. The first time I was there on a week night for an early dinner, while the windows were still open and it wasnt too busy. The second time I was there on a Saturday night during the busy hours between 8-10. The windows were closed and the a/c was on (due to the heavy humidity outside) and it felt cold and it was very noisy in there. Also due to the busy night, service was not perfect.

Tip: There is a very nice beach next to the restaurant which you can also enjoy before or after the fish!!!

“Freshilcious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

I have eaten here twice in the last month, and on both occasions the fish was superb! Very fresh..apparently 90% of the fishing boats in the marina opposite supply Zephyros with fish. That is what the waiter told us anyway. Another useful bit of info - the land that Zephyros is on is owned by a Turkish Cypriot, who cannot claim the land for some reason. This is why they have never built a proper building- its all plasterboard and windows.

Anyway back to the food... fish meze is great pretty standard but the fresness sets them apart. Although last week we ordered specific fish, octopus, squid and grouper. More expensive but worth it in my opinion.The fish is always prepared just right never overcooked.

I would have to agree with other comments that the service is not great, very rushed and you have to keep searching for the waiters. I think they need to hire at least 3 more waiters to deal with busy shifts on the weekend. They are a very busy restaurant that seats maybe 130 -150 people per seating and I am sure on a Sunday they turn those tables three times at lunch!
Tip: Avoid weekends if you can - they are packed throughout the summer.
Tip2: Take a walk around the marina after your meal

“A good Cyprus fish tavern”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

Nothing fancy: your classical Cyprus fish tavern: good food, good wine, average service.
