I am really shocked with what other people wrote for that restaurant. I am visiting this restaurant with my family since I was a kid and the food is still very good and tasty. There are maybe some service issues but not always. Even under the economical pressure of these years, Zakos has kept several dishes that most fish taverns... More

Don't bother, food so so service awful and unfriendly no wonder the place was empty. Food came in stages even the rice that formed one of the dishes was brought in later. I don't want to mention the lack of glasses. Pity it's a great location. Also the music close by was very loud and bothersome.

Although we were very satisfied with this restaurant in the past , recently we realized that on any new visit the dose of the food especially at fish meze is getting less and less whilst the price is the same.

We went recommended by friends for Sunday lunch and we were a big group of 8 adults and 4 kids. They brought plates but no glasses for water, then they brought the beers but no glasses to drink them in. They brought the salad and small dips and half hour later brought the calamari. Then nothing for another 20 minutes.... More

We went there at 14:10 and until 15:50 we were waiting for the food! We are very disappointed. We were waiting long time for the plates, glasses, drinks and starters. We asked many times for food. The plates were dirty, the drinks (pepsi) had strange taste, the wine's bottle was full of dust and had insect. There were dogs and... More

Had lunch here before we headed off to the airport. Can say, this was the worst food we had in our week stay in Larnaca. We both had a Greek salad, which neither of us after a couple of mouthfuls could eat.

It is my second visit after years, and I was back because some friends had chosen it. I thought that they have been upgraded but no luck. Pros: Great Location right on the Mackenzi beach. Family tavern that keeps busy with coaches mostly bringing in tourists or customers who are trapped out there. Cons: Unprofessional, lacking staff, slow service. Food... More

Description
STAY AWAY FROM "ZAKOS" MAKENZI AREA

The Makenzi area is a very beautiful but also an expensive area especially popular for its Fish Tavernas’. There are some Pizza restaurants in the area which are cheaper but most of the restaurants here have fish. In any case, stay away from Zakos Beach Restaurant. We were treated worse than animals!
My Greek friends were leaving that evening for Athens and they had no alternative but stay where they were brought. I am Cypriot and I was to stay a few more days on the island, so I could have some lunch later on at home. I decided to order nothing seeing what was happening. I just watched.

Even the owners were unfriendly, and they delayed for more than an hour to bring the bad quality of food my friends ordered. The owner and stuff were just walking like robots listening but doing nothing and would not respond to what we were telling them.
The food was not only expensive but awful as well. When the time to pay came all were shocked. Not to mention the filthy toilets. It seems they are cleaned once a day. The coach driver was almost served first...because he brought us there, he was sitting in a separate table next to us, and he was enjoying his huge grilled fish, and salad, while the whole group was complaining!
