I am really surprised with number of low ratings for the place. We found it nice. The best of those we have been to in Cyprus. We even got here for the second time - such was the impression of the fish meze we ordered the day before. On the third day on this beach we went to a different... More

Nothing wrong with the food, but much wrong with the army of cats surrounding our table. As the food was delivered to the table at least 7 cats surrounded our table. Whilst we are used to stray cats in Cyprus this was a total extreme. Whether you love or hate cats you would have found the experience as appalling as... More

On day one, whilst sitting on the beach by the restaurant, I could hear the main waitress shouting at this embarrassed waiter for not putting the chairs the way she wanted, I found this awful and degrading for him. When we went in, it took a good ten minutes for them to give us a menu (they weren't busy) and... More

We ordered some food for take away in Zakos and were very satisfied with both the quality and service. Dishes were fresh and tasty. We even got the crock with one of the dishes, which we for sure returned=)

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

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!
