The sauce from garlic and butter shrimps was thick and heavy for the stomach. It's true that the portion was big enough. I don't now if the food is not so tasty just... More

I went to this restaurant three times and the food was great each time. They have fresh sea food at very reasonable prices. Definitely worth a visit.

The food was good, we ate all and what we couldn't we took home. As a fan of greek cuisine, i can say that it stays in top 5 in Bucharest Greek restaurants. Tirosalata, fish roe salad, olives pane, etc., everything was tasty. I can't get past the fact that the garden is crowded, and not in a good way.... More

We went to Zavat for the 4th time this August and except for the previous time when I got sick from the desert, it was the worst experience. Maybe it was the fact that people were on vacation. I had the feeling that our waiter was actually the cleaning lady and the cook was the waiter. We went for the... More

Good sea food, personally ordered only fish several times; nicely cooked, tasty. Very good pita and a special mention for the Zaganu beer.

Possibly the best sea food place in Bucharest. The food was fresh, very nicely cooked and the service was quite fast. We had the butter and garlic prawns and the mix-grill seafood. We'll definitely go there again.
