We had the menu del dia here, 3 courses for 14€, + 2€ per person for sitting outside. The setting in Plaza de Libertad is nice; despite being in a plaza it feels secluded and the square itself is lovely. The food was good too, the spaghetti with vegetables being particularly delicious. However the service was REALLY slow - unacceptably... More

Critics are very lyrical about this restaurant. It seems to me that this restaurant is OK but not a place that excells. Come on! In one of the nicest locations in Salamanca it will be difficult not to make hungry people happy with a plate of regular (uncomplcated) food. Service is sloppy and unprofessional, their standard wine was nothing special... More

We visited this little Bistro close to the Plaza Mayor twice during our weekend in Salamanca. On the first night we began by sitting at one of their outside tables but it was decidedly chilly for mid-August so we moved inside to the stylish interior. We don't eat meat and had struggled to find food in some other restaurants so... More

Zazu is located on a quiet plaza (Plaza Libertad), near the fabulous Plaza Mayor. Even though it is only 50 mtrs from the ever busy Plaza Mayor and surrounding streets, it’s astonishing quiet. The food isn’t ‘WOW’ but, in combination with the location, the wine and the excellent staff, a guarantee for a pleasant evening.

Food is quiet ok, French style. Service is very good. It's all a bit expensive if you are used to Iberian prices, but then you are in a tourist spot. Good menu, limited wine list ( the ones they have are good but marked up heavily).

The food was amazing and the service was perfect. Owner and staff were so friendly and extremely helpful and made a good effort to accommodate English language with conversation and organized us a English menu!

The manager really knows what he's doing here! We had the daily menu with secreto iberico and the farfalle with vodka, no amendments hereby. For this price it's a 5 out of 5 stars for sure. The ingredients are fresh the location very well equipped. No worries, walk in and enjoy

My wife and a friend were staying Salamanca, Spain and wanted a nice sit down dinner. Down the street from our hotel we found this restaurant. Well, we had one of the best meals ever at Zazu Bistro. We started with grilled vegetables, then mushrooms prepared amazingly, then a crab cake that was awesome. The entrees were duck breast in... More

Our group walked by this place one night and decided to try it. The staff was really friendly and the food was really good. I was really happy they had some vegetarian options on the menu since these items can be challenging to find in Spain. The restaurant has a cool hip vibe and I would definitely recommend it for...
