I love this place. Having lived in HB for 43 years and owning a store on the pier, sometimes I want to be downtown but could do without the street scene. Zimzala is just the spot. It's on 5th St. and PCH and has a great menu. It is a bit pricey, but well worth it. Great drinks and big... More

I have been to the bar here a couple times with friends since I am local to the area & always enjoyed myself. The service is great, it's more of a low-key atmosphere & so much better than going for drinks on Main Street. Then recently a friend of mine suggested we do a double date night there with our...

After reading many positive reviews, I'm assuming my experience, yesterday for lunch, was an exception. When we arrived, the restaurant was not busy, all but four tables were empty. We were seated inside next to a table that had not been bused. The woman you seated us said, "You guys' server will be -------- today". (We were a group of... More

They have happy hour on Sat! That's rare. The margherita flatbread is a good portion too & quite tasty. We also thought the sliders would be a good choice & although you may get 3 in other places you get two but they are bigger than other places & super juicy & flavorfull. The servers are on it & very... More

It is fun to eat on the outside patio, great view and good appetizers! We especially liked the calamari but the other food was also good.

Most folks come for the popular happy hour, but Zimzala also has a great dinner menu with unique preparations. We loved the Manila clams with bacon starter and the pan seared large diver scallop entre with asparagus. The selection of wines by the glass was decent and the service was good. Most dinner seating is in the dining room, which... More

The visit to the Shorebreak Hotel was for business and the perfect location to be able to take in the beach action across the street at Pier Plaza Huntington Beach. There are so many restaurants within a short walking distance of hotel it was hard to decide where to eat. We had a short window of time for lunch on... More
