Great food and location

Located near the cinema, shopping centre and hotels. Zippers had a good selection, I had the swordfish and it was perfect. The restaurant is right against the quayside, and with outside seating it's great for watching the sun set.

I came here for a second date! It's one of my favourite restaurants. I'd always recommend booking due to it being popular. This is because the food is always excellent, and the view is stunning especially in the summer over looking the harbour! Staff and nice, big open space restaurant very light and airy feel to the place. Very classy... More

The restaurant has a great view of the outdoors and docks, very pleasant surroundings for a late summer supper. There is plenty to choose from on the menu and the prices are reasonable, in fact we were pleasantly surprised by our bill for 4 mains with 1 extra side, 2 desserts, 4 drinks and a coffee, £85. The staff were... More

Yet another great meal, etc. at Zippers. Staff are great and always friendly, although they seemed a bit busier than normal, as appeared less of them!!! Food was great as normal.

This was our first visit to Zippers. We we're visiting the outlet stores buying shoes etc for the return to school and decided to find somewhere to go for lunch. Giving Nando's and Burger King a wide berth we spotted Zippers. We were given a warm friendly welcome and received very good attentive service throughout. We were impressed with the... More

I have been to Zippers on three occasions and still cannot decide how it should be classed. The food is perfectly adequate and the restaurant is very tastefully modern, but somehow it lacks any character. This alas is probably down though to the staff. They all 'go through the motions', sometimes slow motions. Zippers could be a great restaurant, but... More

After a recent shopping trip to the outlet centre we decided to try zippers again and what a difference, we sat outside, had good service from a very nice girl called "Gemma" she was very attentive, nothing was too much trouble she thought ahead when it came down to the meals for the children so we didn't need to ask....

I have been to Zippers at Chatham Maritime on several occasions, with family and sometimes family friends too. The restaurant is excellent; the food is delicious, the staff are very friendly and the cleanliness is superb. This Zippers restaurant is also located in a prominent riverside location, so you can enjoy the meal right by the river with extraordinary views... More

The food here is well cooked and reasonably priced and portion sizes are ok. The staff are friendly and the restaurant is clean. My only gripe is that we visited at 2.30pm on a Saturday afternoon and the service was very slow due to only two staff on duty. This turned out to be because the new manager has been... More
