Since an unfortunate fire, this restaurant has relocated to my side of town so I wanted to give it a try. I really don't want to list all the bad things that happened.... But I will mention the very! expensive paella. I incorrectly thought it would have to be good because it was so expensive. No. I have nothing good... More

We have dined here before and returned to enjoy a great atmosphere. A relaxed unhurried venue with a good choice of either Spanish or Mexican food. With separate rooms, you get an intimate dining experience with excellent staff and service. Definitely worth a visit!

We had birthday dinner here on saturday night. The food, drinks and service are always great. The atmosphere is cool and there are a lot of separate dinning areas that make it feel private. Dining with the family, tapas is the way to go. It's one of our favourite places to dine, love the sangria and the churros with the... More

I’ve been here many times over the years and always enjoyed the food and the cocktails and sangria, it’s a fantastic place for a girls night out. The service has really improved recently, it used to be a bit hit and miss but it’s great now and one particular waiter is always fantastic, I can’t remember his name. The meals... More

We have been here a few times, have found the staff friendly although slow service. Expensive meals with little flavour, delicious sangaria!

I've been here several times recently with family or friends. I love the food. I'm not vegetarian, but at Zaragosas I always have the vegetarian option as I think they do it so well. Always flavoursome and has a really nice texture. The Red Sangria is really nice too. The building itself and the layout of the restaurant contribute to... More

I love Zaragosas. I love the cocktails (or mocktails if you aren't drinking) and I love the nachos. They have some nice eating areas and there is a range of foods on the menus. The downside about the food is it often has that 'reheated' look and taste about it. The service is always friendly, however don't be in a... More

I have been a frequent diner at Zaragosa for over 6 years. I can honestly say that I don't agree with the majority of comments I have read on Trip Advisor of late. My meals have always been amazing and the service fantastic. By far the best Mexican I have tasted to date. Keep up the great work Bianca &... More

Food is quite dry, and staff I spoke to could not pronounce menu items properly (I speak Spanish so it annoyed me a little). Good atmosphere though and awesome Sangrias.
