“Great place to stop and eat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

If you are driving between Larnaca and Limassol. It would be great to stop at the sites along the way (Choirokoitia, Lefkara) and also add this lovely restaurant in this cute sea village on your to-see list. It would also break up the day for a relaxing feed. The place is family owned and the staff are very friendly. The food is great and the fish taste so fresh. A must for anyone within the area.

“Tasty Fish Meze, in a pleasant fish Tavern”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

It's about a small traditional fish restaurant placed at Zygi a village between Larnaca city and Limmasol. This mean that you need a car to reach the place.
The food quality is very good almost excellent with good portion.
Is best to order the fish meze which has standard price and lot of different plates served.
The prices are reasonable.
Try your fish meze with the Greek spirit Ouzo .
40% alcohol so be careful if you driving.

“traditional fish restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

a small and very clean fish tavern in Zygi Area. in a few words :

a. this fish tavern has reasonable prices ( fish meze )

b. food quality was very good but the quantity comparing it with other fish restaurants we have visited it was a bit short of some meze plates.

c. staff was friendly but didnt pay much attention on the orders and took them some time to bring you what you have asked for.

“fresh catch of the day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

FRESH fish-daily catch. But NOT on beachfront. Instead the tavern is located in a picturesque village square.

“Best Fish Restaurant In Area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2011

If you are going to Zygi head staight for this small family run restaurant for a great meal.

This can be found in an alley at (4 Apostolou Varnava) opposite the swanky and very overpriced (my opinion) Captains Table.

We did check out captains Table which has a fabulaous position overlooking the Marina and certainly is the most well known eating place in the town. Howber after trying both we re-visited Santa Elena several times and each time had great food cooked exactly how we liked.

It is best to leave the recommendations to them.

Would I eat there again if in the area. Definately.

The view outside is very pretty whilst not on the harbour front.
