My husband and I missed this place after selling our cabin that was nearby so much that we went and stayed at a local inn so that we could return there. The food was delicious as usual. I always order the steak au poivre. The grilled vegetable kabob and warm brownie a la mode was also excellent. It seems that... More

Our friends took us here to celebrate a special birthday and it was special indeed! We tried a dozen small plates which were ample enough to share! We enjoyed each Nd every one. Never felt rushed and each plate was SPECIAL! Service-Awesome!

The owner, Doug is an excellent chef and manager. The place is well run, and the servers are always friendly. Did I say delicious? Yup. This guy has perfected the huge menu - Tapas makes you think Spanish, but it sure seems French to me. Yummy.

The beauty of tapas is getting several items as a group and sharing and sampling, or if you just want a couple of things yourself. We found Zuzda to be top of the line with our assortment of filet, PEI mussels, lobster bisque, and outstanding bread with garlic and butter. We found the food and the atmosphere here to be... More

The food was tasty. The service was fine. The ambience was unique. Unfortunately, we are active people and big eaters... and the portions received for the price were inadequate. After spending $40+ on food alone, we decided to pay the check and move on to a different restaurant for our actual meal. This was my first Tapas experience and so... More

The atmosphere is nice, the staff are friendly and the food was very good. The menu offers many choices at reasonable prices. You pick and choose to meet your taste and appetite. Small portions are served, so select several items if really hungry. Our server was attentive without being overbearing. We were not rushed either. Will definitely go back another... More

We liked the variety and the selections were varied and the servings were tapa sized. This was a good way to sample several menu items.

We stay on Sugar Mountain along with other couples for a couple of months every year. We get together at Zuzda a couple of times each year. I have never been disappointed with the selections and quality. Tapas are a lot of fun as you can try foods for the first time with a small portion. If you don't "love"... More
