Food is delicious but service was awful.
We waited for ages, felt ignored a lot of the time with staff just walking past us and not acknowledging us. When we did ask about food the waiter was unfriendly and said “well we are busy tonight”. Such a shame that we won’t be going back because the food is great.

We started going to the restaurant in february last year and have enjoyed it.
This time the food was not as good and cold, the cocktails mojito that we raved about to friends were bland and tasteless.
Sadly this time not an enjoyable experience.

Really delicious food & price not bad for such lovely food
Waiters & waitresses waiting on the tables very friendly & attentive but initially the manager was not welcoming & didn’t even say hello
Restaurant was lovely & warm but the door was opened really regularly & there’s nothing to stop the freezing cold come rushing in & we were seated right by the door

We visit Zeus regularly as it’s our favourite place and we can never fault the service or food. They are also great for food allergies and birthdays!

Amazing food- we ordered far too much Meze as always. It’s just so hard to choose what to leave out.
Service was prompt but not overwhelming and my cocktail (can’t remember what it is called but was with coffee and Baileys) was simply wonderful.
We went on a Sunday night so it was very quiet but the music level was just right
Can’t wait to come back

Lovely pre theatre meal - we were the only ones in as rather early on a wet cold evening , but there was a lovely cosy atmosphere , waitress picked up that we were going to the theatre and checked what time so that she could be sure we got our food in good time . Delicious food , cocktails , great value .

Visited Zeus for the first time, for lunch. on a Sunday. Very nice Greek/Cypriot restaurant with lots of choice on the menu. The food was good and the service too. Will definitely return.

Probably not after this recent visit. The whole place was very cold. It wasn’t enjoyable to have the meal when it was so cold around. I get that it was very cold out last week but still. I feel like my meal wasn’t as good this time, compared to how wowed I was on my last visit in the summer. Mine was more like warm than hot. All though my dad ordered the same and his was served piping hot. Would still come and eat here again but was disappointed after this visit on Wednesday.

Food was lovely but it was so cold inside the restaurant. The table next to ours were at in coats and scarves and asked the waitress to close both sets of doors. She asked ‘the boss’ who said they were fire doors and could not be closed which in my experience if they were fire doors should be kept closed !!! Great food but wear your thermals and don’t sit anywhere near the doors !!

My brother and I took our mum here for her birthday. We had a fantastic time. The food was amazing and the service was really good. The girls did a fantastic job. Mum had a great time too which was really important. Its a shame I don't live in Canterbury as I reckon I would eat here on a very regular basis.

Was expecting a little more, multiple pictures of the same reception room was misleading making me think the place was that much bigger upon booking.

Room was smaller than expected.

Staff were lovely and very polite although cleaners didn’t speak a word of English.

Breakfast was great.

Quirky but small.

Really lovely food, but a little expensive for the vegetarian options, would have been nice to see a mix meat and vegetarian meze for a set price.

Pleasant ambiance. Stuffed vine leaves were good. Thought I’d try the veggie option, the Mount Olympus stack. Would definitely recommend, even to non- vegetarians, for a tasty, fulfilling meal.

Food good overall and service excellent.
Very noisy so not ideal for a table for 2 as encircled by 2 large tables of 8 diners.
Disappointed that we weren’t able to leave a cash tip for our excellent waitress.

Arrival of meze dishes was very disjointed. First 2 arrived then had to ask about the other 3 some 15 minutes later when they had not arrived. Server needed to check our order online then 1 more dish arrived quite quickly, followed by the other 2 a further 6 minutes later. Wine by the bottle was very expensive.

We had a great meal at Zeus - lovely food and friendly, helpful service. We chose a selection of meze dishes, which were all very good. We would definitely eat here again on our next visit to Canterbury.
