“A great simple fish restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Santa Elena was recommended to us and we weren't disappointed. Located in Zygi, the restaurant is in the centre of the village opposite the church. The food is just simply prepared fish, and was delicious. The atmosphere very homely. We visited twice. We had simple starter dips, followed by fish. As simple as that. The wine that we were offered was great too. Sit outside or in. Very simple local decor. The one thing we did find was an acquired taste and not one for us, were the olives that we were given. Try one and see for yourself! All in all a very relaxing evening.

“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.
