Authentic and welcoming

The best thing about Zara is probably its costumers, playing back gammon and chess. The staff is very welcoming and nice, and like Paradise in the same street, Zara is here for decades. It's a classic. It's great outside during summer and also very comforting inside during a rainy day. Even... read more

I have been to Hampstead Heath many times over the years but have never needed to find a restaurant for a proper meal near the station before. The pub looked ok not great so we saw this unimposing place across the road serving Anatolian cuisine and decided to give it ago as it serves a varied menu - meat /... More

Excellent food, I had a vegetarian dish and it blew my mind. Definitely would recommend this place, I come to the area quite often and I will come again for sure. The venue is nice without being pretentious.

I read good reviews of this place but it exceeded our expectations. The welcome was warm and service throughout the meal was exceptionally attentive, discreet and helpful. Traditional and unpretentious decor, food was very fresh, light, healthy and delicious. Fish, mezze, and Anatolian specialities recommended. An excellent experience in Hampstead. We will be going back.

Mediterranean place (Greek/Turkish?) in Belsize village. Great to sit outside on the pavement and watch the world and his wife (and their kids and dogs!) go by. Have ben before and feel sure the food and service were both a little better than out latest visit. Obviouslly popular with the older Greeks/Turks. Service is efficient but not especially friendly.

I went to the pub with some colleagues for a farewell party and we got all hungry after a couple of pints so we decided to head for the nearest reastaurant which was Zara. I had seen it before many times because I work at the Royal Free and it looks quite nice from the outside. I shared a started... More

Dropped by on recommendation, food arrived but meat actually looked and tasted like it had been reheated from the previous night, small portion of meat and rice, but salad was tasty and fresh . All in this was terrible value even for Hampstead. Never going to this place again. Staff didn't seem to care if we enjoyed or wanted to... More
