Have eaten in Zabranos a number of times now and it has always been consistently good. The staff are always very friendly and welcoming and it's a buzzy atmosphere. Great in summer as they can open the windows which makes it lovely and breezy. The mid week menu has been consistently good value, no skimping on portion size or quality... More

I'm never one to actually write tripadvisor reviews but I'm not sure I want anyone else to endure the same experience. I ordered from the tapas menu and not only was this ridiculously overpriced the portion size was very disappointing. A brief run down of the dishes: - chorizo and roasted peppers in red wine. Firstly the size of this... More

I took my children for a Father's Day roast. We burnt more calories chewing on the tough beef and hard potatoes than we actually got from the meal. A waste of £40!!!!! Won't be going back

Poor service and average food. Chicken Liver starter was big enough to feed 5 which made it unappetising and when combined with the slow and rude service from staff it resulted in an early exit for a drink down the road. Wont be back....

First time I've been there, won't be rushing back, over 30min waiting for starters, when the main came it was cold had to be sent back,but was still cold when I got it back,when a complaint was made the manager didn't want to know and not even an apology was made, VERY DISAPPOINTED

Just returned from a Sunday Lunch with a group of friends & a very disappointing first time experience. Whilst having to wait an considerable amount of time, the main course arrived cold with exception to the roast meat. I asked for the meal too be warmed up, as did a number of my fellow diners. Upon return, the meal was... More

Pre booked for our group of 12, waited over 2 hours for Sunday lunch which was cold, others returned their meals more than once. One guest actually left. Pretty appalling.

Along the Leigh Road in Leigh-on-Sea, I stumbled across this restaurant by pure chance. In hindsight, perhaps a divine hand was guiding my fate, ushering me to an experience that naught shall be forgot. Upon stepping into the establishment, I was immediately welcomed and my coat collected by the exceptionally attentive bar staff. First impressions were good. I asked for... More
