Great Place

Loved the Coconut Shrimp, amazing dish. A definite must. Right on the beach so it can be windy. Good service

Like the atmosphere of this place and they have good bands but the booze is horrible! Its all watered down- which would be fine if the mixed drinks were $3 but for $7-10 you're basically drinking water- its just plain fraud. I never drink hard alcohol in the states and on vacay in PDC we went to Zenzi several times-... More

We ended up using this place a lot. First for drinks, then for lunch and drinks while getting a tan on the beach, and finally for breakfast too. Most of the staff are attentive and good, but service is slow. Menue is limited but good. The tuna dishes were excellent, so was the chowder.

Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays there are free salsa lessons from 9pm to 10pm and after that a salsa band is playing. Perfectly located upon the beach you can choose a table in the sandy area, near the bar or inside in an open parlor. There are two dance floors, one with uneven wooden planks the other abrasive. But the band... More

This restaurant/bar is right on the beach. You can eat with your toes in the sand. The food and drinks were fine, but the service was really pretty slow. If you're not in a hurry, it's a fine place to stop for a bite or cocktails on the beach.

First, I'll be upfront and say it's quite possible the food, drink and sunbeds are worth your time here. We just unfortunately never had the chance to find out. Our condo has a "deal" with Zenzi to allow reservations a day ahead. We took the time and made our reservation, then walked 15 minutes to the beach club right at... More
