I used to love the previous Zargosa location, it used to be my favourite restaurant. After it got burnt down several months ago and reopened we thought we would try it out. First of all, the atmosphere is one of the worst restaurant atmospheres i have ever experienced. No music to be heard. Staff just stood silently drying glasses, and... More

I am disappointed to say after booking a table for a Tuesday night dinner, we did not get to try the food. After waiting for 25 minutes with no service, not even a glass of water or drink order taken, we decided to leave and go to another local restaurant who could provide service and good fresh food in a...

Came to Ballarat recently and we had a meal here. The waiter explained that the restaurant was new due to the old one burning down! The service was great, food was exceptional (We had a few tapas and shared a mixed fajita) and a lovely warm atmosphere!

We had been looking forward to going back to Zaragosa after their original premises burnt down last year. We attempted to go there for tea last night around 8.30pm, however the staff completely ignored us and we left after 5min and will not be returning. Whilst we waited we picked up a copy of the menu from the shelf in... More

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
