We were traveling from Hannibal, MO, to Quebec, and spent the night in Marshall. I searched TripAdvisor and luckily I found Zarzuela. A smallish town like Marshall is so lucky to have a restaurant of this quality! Disregard the bad reviews--I can't imagine why two people didn't like it (they must have had a bad day before they ate, or they don't like ANY restaurant). We love to cook at home, but regularly eat out and are quite particular about WHERE we eat (no fast-food restaurants or chains). Zarzuela was a great experience!
From the moment we walked in the door, we felt welcomed and special. There were fresh flowers on all of the tables, the wait staff was friendly and helpful, the clientele were enjoying the experience, and the restaurant decor was great.
We had the calamari (excellent) and the special dinners of the day. The salads/soups were terrific as well.
I wish this restaurant was close by to our home--it would be somewhere we would frequent regularly!! Marshall residents you are very lucky.
