Good food!

For the occasional meal out this place is for you. Lovely food and friendly staff. The only time we had a problem here it was as a result of the smokers outside. The doors were open and the smoke fumes were drifting in, no problem if you're a smoker!

Went here with a friend the other evening and had crab cakes and confit duck leg. My friend also had the duck. The crab cakes were soft, not fried , way too Limey and sour. The Duck was horrible. The mash was tasteless the red wine jus was sour. The whole meal was sour and they had hard stick like... More

We often drink in Zabranos but decided to eat here this evening as it has been some time since we last did. We opted for the Tapas menu and I have to say it was most enjoyable. In particular the pork belly and halloumi were excellent but all the dishes we ordered we enjoyed. We look forward to trying the... More

Really easy going and a nice atmosphere. Went for two roast dinners. Served drinks really quickly. Starters and lunch really nice and dinners were superb. Really good quality topside. Really enjoyed and great value - we'll be back!

Where to start..well; - massively overpriced - average food - shocking service - we had to listen to the same 4 songs over and over for 2 hours - brownie was much worse that anything one might find with in a packet with a yellow ticked on in at happy shopper And to top it all, we were told that...

We went through stage of having all of our special occasion meals here. We always had the lamb to share between all of us as they will make it up for however many people you have there. Always delicious and great starters and desserts too! My only complaint is with the lighting. i just find it ever so slightly too... More

Attended a large birthday party and received very good service, waiters/waitresses didn't hover like they do in some other restaurants which can be so off putting when eating, but they were attentive enough to make sure we were all ok. Food was nice and setting was good.

My Wife & I pre-booked & dined here Saturday evening 7th February just recently. We have often thought about trying it out so took the plunge. We had booked for 7.30pm & arrived about 7.15pm so were asked to take a seat in the downstairs bar & order some drinks first which we did. I thought at this point straight... More

The steak was lovely but everything else was poor. Waiter failed to write down our order correctly and had to come back over and ask how we wanted our steaks cooked twice. The rib eye was sold out but the waiter didn't know until after we ordered. Our starter's took more than 40 minutes to arrive (I only started counting... More

Firstly, the food was good and my 3 out of five are purely for that. The waitress exchanged impatient glances with the waiter when two of our party of six were asking about portion sizes (our first visit to Zabrano's) and she barely disguised her snigger with a cough which was embarrassing for those of us who noticed. The restaurant... More
