I keep trying Zaragosa as I love Mexican and Spanish, but over the years there has been a progressive decline in quality. On arrival we were placed in what I can only describe as the 'naughty corner'. A small table for four people, next to a sink and restaurant stock and boxes. Service was extraordinarily slow, to get someone to... More

Scott and his crew do a great job serving up terrific Mexican/Spanish food in a nice new venue. Pricing is up there but the quality is as good as you will get anywhere. We've been going for years. You need to book in Friday and Saturday.

We visited Zaragosa recently, on a Saturday night, with friends. We have been many times, but only once before in their new premises. We are great supporters of local restaurants. The menu needs to be more creative, and authentic, as it is rather tired and average. The service is of a poor standard, which seems to be the norm in... More

I have been here for dinner twice in the last month and enjoyed both meals immensely. Had the seafood paella and the chicken and chorizo pie, and of course a red wine sangria- yum. My family all commented on how tasty their meals were as well. Service was also exceptional and the atmosphere relaxing. Can't wait for the next visit.

Yes it was average, it has always been average or just above average. In the old premises it had been a Mexican or Spanish Mexican for some years so the place had all that charm but it was also in serious need of renovation. It has not been in these digs for long so give them a chance. Reasonable fare... More

This was my family's first time back at Zaragosa since moving to its new location. As always the food was fantastic as was the pricing! It was a little disappointing that we were seated right in front of the bar when we were the only patrons in the venue for almost an hour and had booked 3 weeks in advance.
