Nice meal, quite night, service lacking from the start - 7.15pm we walked in. Hardly over worked those wait staff, 5 or 6 tables, 2 who left not longer after we arrived. Waited at least 15 minutes for them to ask us if we would like a drink, after we lassoed a waitress! Then having had our plates cleared at... More

Cannot explain how top notch this restaurant is, food is beautifully presented with little to no wait and always tastes fresh and amazing. Service is friendly and super quick, staff are always running around making sure everyone has what they need and no request is too big for them. The view is just breathtaking and management is excellent. Will be... More

Zak's Ouzeri used to be a fine Greek dining destination. It had the location (on the shores of West Lakes), the sunset and the airy, open dining space that used to be so pleasant. There was even live Greek music on weekend evenings. After an absence of several years, admittedly, this reviewer took friends from Greece to relive the ambiance.... More

As locals, we have frequented Zac's on numerous occasssions over the years. The restaurant is iconic to the area. The original owners sold about 18 months ago and rhe restaurant has sadly spiralled from a thriving hub to a complete decline. The last 3 times we have been (this year) we said we wouldn't be back. The food is below... More

Food was very ordinary. 2 x Spaghetti Marina's were hardly eaten as they had a very strange taste, ? cinnamon, they were thick and gluggy. Rib eye steak was very tender but covered in excess salt that really spoilt it. Waitress asked how were the meals, we told her that they were not very good. Not sure what she did... More

Told the waiter that the food was not good, it was hardly touched- she said she would let the chefs know, surly seen 2 meals had hardly been touched they... More

Caught up with another couple on saturday night - arrived at 7pm with a byo bottle of wine. Offered to eat inside or outside -chose the latter. Great view of west lakes only brought down by the nursery of weeds growing up between the pavers where the outdoor blinds are. But they were in full flower, so I guess that... More

Called up at 10:30am to make a booking and got a recorded message saying to leave my name, number and they would return my call, which I did as I realised it was probably too early, but we wanted to make sure we got a table. Waited over two hours and no call. So I called back and was advised... More

Have not been there since it changed hands. A young man initially served us and he was very polite and helpful. We ordered the Kibbeh, served with hummus, to share as an entree. It was served on a bed of lettuce that had black slimy bits throughout, with tzatziki. We pointed out that it said on the menu it was... More
