We sat out on their lovely patio seating since we dined with our 60 lb lab. I was more than satisfied at the great service they staff even gave to our pooch. My husband and I didn't want to take leftovers back to our hotel, so we split the carrot ginger soup (very delicious!) and the burger. The bacon jam... More

Enjoyed a great lunch outside on their second level balcony over looking the beach. Ordered the pumpkin panzanilla salad and BLT sandwich to share and both were incredible!! The restaurant is not right on the beach but across the street from pacific coast highway. But still a great view. You can park in the underground parking lot for $2 an... More

Nice service and optional outside dining overlooking the shopping area of town. Attached to 2nd floor of Shorebreak Hotel so very convenient for cocktails and dining when staying at the hotel. Wine and well drinks are $5

Zimzala has a large spacious bar area and terrace with comfortable and interesting seating/laying options! I want to love it but a $13.00 coctail turns out to be a tall glass of ice. On my second visit I asked for less ice but this changed the previously delicious cocktail (what there was of it) into a tall $13.00 glass of... More

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...
