Totally delicious, my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the meal. I had the Greek platter with shrimp he had steak with the red wine sauce. The lemon and blueberry meringue was also very moreish. Service was excellent, the only negative was the very loud party of women who were seated adjacent to us. They did disturb the ambience of the... More

We had a lovely dinner last night with bacon covered prawns, a real greek salad and Filet steak dinners. DELISH, DELISH, DELISH!!! Our meals were as ordered and our steaks absolutely melted in our mouths. The service is excellent as every server makes sure you have what you need. It was a team effort to make our dining experience magical.....

The ambience and views were great. Food was amazing - best steak and lobster I have had in a long while. Service was perfect. Our server was there at exactly the right times - attentive but not intrusive. A wonderful evening.

Whenever we have visitors from out of town we take them to our favorite restaurant. Nobody has ever been disappointed. The food is great with lots of variety. Try the Scallops Florentine for an appetizer. The Steak Zougla and Chicken Zougla are to die for. All the Greek and lamb dishes are very fine as well. The restaurant is round... More

We have had several meals at Zougla. It is consistently great. The food is always delicious and the service is very good. I especially love the dolmades and the souvlaki.

We went for dinner at Zougla's to celebrate both an Anniversary and a Birthday for visiting special friends. The experience was truly delightful. The restaurant is very nicely appointed and very clean. There are picturesque windows overlooking Departure Bay. Our server for the evening was Alicia. She was friendly, very attentive and efficient yet not at all overbearing. We noticed... More

Zougla is not your typical Greek restaurant. It's more like a fusion of Mediterranean food with some Italian thrown in for good measure. The service is exceptional, the ambiance is lovely and the food is far above average. I've been with groups and just with my husband. Every time it has never failed to deliver. The wine list is great... More

So there I was, sitting with my back to the huge plate glass window so as to give our visitors a better view of the outside, when in walks three members of the "gang" and plop themselves down next our table. There was no mistaking who they were. Their affiliation with the Hell's Angels was advertised all over their clothes.... More

Let's start off with the bad - the parking lot is very tight with no easy access or egress, but prevail. Now the good - Once past the parking problem you have some steep steps to navigate, but there is a ramp off to one side for those that are stair challenged. Once inside the setup is a semi-circle with... More
