We came across El Zoco much by chance, and I feel very fortunate to have done so. We booked with quite short notice on a Monday evening for dinner. The restaurant itself is charming, beautifully decorated and a lovely homely feel to it. The food...More

El Zoco is a marvelous place! First of all, it is one if the oldest, if not the oldest restaurant in Cortina d'Ampezzo. It was founded half a century ago! The restaurant is a bit out of the city center of Cortina but it is...More

Crammed, old fashioned restaurant. Food was good. We recommend the grilled meat dish, meat was tender and tasty. Dessert list was quite anonymous. On a positive note, the owner is very lively and welcoming. 80€, ok

We came a family of five people with recommendation from the hotel, so we didn’t know much about it. The food was delicious and the service amazing. Amazing food for meat eaters, vegetarians, vegans, and non gluten options. Highly recommended!

We had an excellent lunch here in June. The food was just lovely. Antipasto de la casa followed by Fillet Steak, perfectly cooked and presented. Most helpful staff. A high spot of my visit to the Dolomites. THANKS.

Called late in the evening to this small, atmospheric restaurant. The chamois carpaccio was delicious and our pasta dishes both excellent as were our desserts. Wine list is pricy so we had the mediocre house wine.
