Received first class attention on a Saturday night. Complements to the chef on fantastic food. Had come from The Boatyard as the food there was inadequate in comparison.

Considering the competition right on its doorstep, you'd have thought they would have been on top of their game. This was not the case, while the food was average, the service most definitely wasn't. I'd barely put the last mouthful of my main course in my mouth before the plates were very hurriedly cleared from the table. No service with... More

A great lunch with all meals chosen off the specials board today. Again the chef carefully adapted dishes that met specific dietary requirements. The thoughtfulness of the staff and mixture of doors open in the sunshine, great good and good vibe makes this place the place to be. If you haven't visited Zabranos you are missing out on a gem.

Have always wondered what Zabrano was like and now I know. Fabulous! ! We came on a Saturday evening and the atmosphere was relaxed and there were all types of customers, ie couples and groups. The food was gorgeous and the house wine very good and reasonably n priced for Leigh. Will definitely visit again.

We ate here for the first time in a while and were very much looking forward to trying the food. We ate from the set price menu at £12.95 which seems to be the average price for set menu meals in Leigh. My starter of sardines was a little disappointing as their were only two small Sardines and they had... More

Good atmosphere and attentive service. Very affordable menu with special offer on the evening 2 or 3 course deals. The food is well presented and delicious, what more could you ask for?

I visited this establishment with my husband and was lucky to get a table as we had not booked. I had the rib eye steak and asked for it rare. My husband had the calves liver. The timing of the serving was perfect showing that they were cooking to perfection which was the case when we tucked in. My steak... More

Just had another lovely lunch which was complimented by lots of meaningful small touches. Nothing is too much trouble at Zabranos and as someone with special dietary needs I was automatically offered alternative choices. Thank you Meneka and your excellent waiter and chef for making our lunch special. If you haven't sampled Zabranos yet you are missing out on a... More

I have eaten at Zabrano many times and quite often but only at lunch time. My other half and I decided to go for a meal out and we booked for last Saturday evening. It was very busy but we had our coats taken as soon as we arrived and shown to our table. Ordered a bottle of wine and... More
