“Beaten by the fish meze”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Scanning the best places to eat in Larnaca on this site ranks Zephyros 11th. Visiting the place with my local chum Stavros he ranked it no1. I'm inclined to agree with the local knowledge. We dropped in and were greeted like lost cousins (which I think Stavros was) and ushered to an excellent table and offered a bottle of house wine on them. We ordered three fish mezes for four and could barely make a dent. The food is not only good but there is MASSES of it - it arrives like unrelenting tsunamis each dish more tempting than the one before. Octopus follows squid follows red mullet follows... (you get the picture). Its right on the sea front, dead popular with locals and always rammed on Sundays (avoid).

“FANTASTIC!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

well tuesday night - hot everywhere - so friends opted for zephyros and we thought - WHY NOT!! we were not disappointed. what a fantastic choice! we had fish meze on the sxara (grilled) - there was a bit of everything, plus dips, 3 types of bread (fresh village, toasted cypriot bread and warmed pitta bread! - where do u find that - they stick a piece each on a plate for you and think they r doing u a favour - NOT ZEPHYROS!). taramosalata, talatouri, taxini, kapari, grilled mushrooms, fresh salad, fresh greens such as rocket, radish, lettuce, cuttlefish, murmoura, red mullet, tsipoura, kalamari, octopus, shrimps - i'm serious - we were so stuffed. dessert was grapes - grown outside in their own vineyard - the veriko variety and sweets from the jar - and they weren't stingy with those either - walnut, watermelon and orange! i really knew i couldn't eat another thing!!! IT'S A RESTAURANT THAT DOESN'T HOLD BACK - EVERYTHING IS PLENTIFUL!! JUST THE WAY CYPRIOTS LIKE !!! fish meze is euros 20.00 per person and drinks are reasonably priced - large calsberg euros 3.50! what more do u want. service very swift, very fast and very pleasant - can't fault it. VERY CLEAN AND SPACIOUS. DEFINITELY GOING AGAIN MANY TIMES! one of the best places to eat in Larnaca and therefore no wonder it's always packed with both locals and tourists. parking place convenient and air condition kept us - oh so cool! HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. keep up the excellent work ZEPHYROS - u r definitely an asset in our deprived town!!!

“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!!!
