“Great Greek & Cypriot food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

Highly authentic Greek & Cypriot restaurant located in Astoria Queens is a real find.
If Mediterranean food is your goal than go no further than Zenon Taverna. The food is fresh and reasonably priced. The staff is very helpful and is eager to explain the menu items. The sampler dinner is a great way to experience many different foods.

“A good Cypriot/Greek eatery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

A not very big room with a comfortable ambience and pleasant service is in a residential part of Astoria. Ask for their mezzo service for two and you will be brought seven plates of cold mezze followed by seven plates of warm mezzo for just $23. We were four and it was more than enough for a long and casual lunch accompanied by their house wines. Everything tasted good and I imagine it's what their home cooking is like. Zenon is worth repeat visits.

“Good home cooking-authentic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

An excellent two-hour transport to the atmosphere and food of Cyprus.
What it lacks in perfection only adds to its authenticity.
Home cooking here, not polished.
Fried Calamari was a little soggy, but flavorful.
Wednesday's special was spring lamb, baked in a paper shell--big chunks of lamb shank, potatoes, carrots, rice and stew herbs. Good country cooking.
Very nice dessert selections, great classics, a few surprises (walnuts soaked in wine & honey)
Pleasant surprise--decaf Greek coffee! Perfect at 10 pm!

“WE LOVE ZENON TAVERNA!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

Food is always freshly prepared, their egg lemon soup is authentic, the cypres salad is amazing, everything is fresh and delicious. Laid back atmosfere, you can just go in shorts and flip flops and relax having authentic cyprian food.

The only con is that they only take cash, but the food is so good, I don't mind missing out on getting my credit card miles!
