I've eaten at this restaurant with friends on a few occasions and the food is usually ok and well presented. However when you're with friends you tend to drink and this establishment doesn't embarrass itself by undercharging for even the most modest bottles of wine. Drinker beware!!

This restaurant used to be really nice but have now changed to letting people just drink in it with only a few tables to eat downstairs with a load of people chatting away therefore quite noisy, you are now ushered upstairs in a room with no atmosphere.

Shared tapas with a friend. Enjoyed all 4 dishes and will definitely be returning. (the photo does not do the food justice) The service was friendly and the best part for me, I could sit OUTSIDE on a NON SMOKING table! It is so nice for a restaurant to realise that non smokers like to enjoy the outside without sharing... More

Food was very nice we had lunch it wasn't very busy and we had to wait a bit between courses which was a bit off putting. Service was fine but not exceptional. Would still go again though

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
