Zenon Taverna serves Greek-Cypriot food and all of it is very delicious. I particularly recommend getting grilled halloumi and sheftalia, though- both classically Cypriot things. Highly recommended!

I love coming to this place. You feel the Greek influence all around you and also when the family is all taking care of you and speaking Greek. The atmosphere is very romantic, private and relaxing. The food is delicious no matter what you pick. The waitresses always have a smile on their face and you can tell that they... More

Totally worth visiting!!! The food is delicious, freshly made and very good quality. Loved all the dishes i ve tried but my favorites are pastitsio and koupepia (stuffed grape leaves). Its a family run business, they are very friendly and they put their best effort to meet all tour needs. Highly recommended if you want to take a good taste... More

This is my favorite traditional Greek restaurant in Astoria--the prices are reasonable and the portions super large. We always have leftovers! Sometimes there is a wait, so go early. The menu is huge, so the more people that go with you, the more dishes you can try. BRING CASH!

I recently ate here and absolutely loved it. everything we ordered was amazing! Tzatziki, meatballs and the Octopus was some of the best I've eaten. I would come here again for sure! Only downside is they only take cash no card which is quite inconvenient as I don't carry that around and when you are with a group of people... More

We visited Greece a couple weeks ago so, was quite excited to come back to Astoria and enjoy all the Greece cuisine. Zenon didn't disappoint! We had the lamb chops and they were seasoned and cooked to perfection. Would've loved to have some ouzo but it was a little pricey. Don't forget, cash only!

We were walking around astoria and decided to get inside Zenon for a casual lunch. It has a great ambience inside it, transporting you to Cyprus in the 50s, and the waiters are extremely friendly and attentive. We ordered the meat meze which was wonderfully made, and definitely more food than 2 people can handle. The eating experience here was... More
