Good food

We got to VDL really hungry and Zarina was a place we found fast. We didn't expect anything and the food was really good, specially the trout with almond sauce.

It is a small well located restaurant. The menu is not so big but the dishes are well prepared. The trout with apple sauce is perfect. It has not the best wine seller in town but you can stand it. The service is excellent.

We absolutely loved this restaurant. The place is beautiful, inside Casa Quintero which is a huge colonial house with many other restaurants and shops, and right off the main square in Villa de Leyva. The food was spectacular, I had the beef medallions and my husband had the trout, both cooked to perfection, with very fresh ingredients. The service was... More

Menu does not change much, but what they have is overall very good. Arroz especial is fantastic. Service OK (not great), this is a small place. Worth it

We saved visiting Zarina until our last night as we had read quite a few great reviews. Never mind the food, the service was terrible and for this reason after our overpriced starter we decided not to stay for mains. We asked for the bill and waited for 15 minutes before asking for it again. We then waited a further... More

We had our lunch at this place and the food is just terrific. We had the curry chicken and the mixed meal. The vegetables were grilled to perfection, the tabouleh was wonderful and the mix of spices and flavours ....just perfect. I reccommend this restaurant to everyone. I wish I had a Zarina in my hometown!

I was so absolutely offended by them. I can't say anything about the food, but to mee, bad service is as unacceptable as bad food. We took the time to walk there during the day to reserve a table for a very special night we had with our friends. They were super nice and told us not worry and our... More
