We really enjoyed a tasty night out. We had the kids and felt like the chef designed a perfect children's menu making the Mexican choices palatable for delicate mouths. As adults we enjoyed the more spicy treats and didn't feel like we were as far away from Mexico as were.

We went here with friends last week and had a very nice meal. Warm and cosy atmosphere with very friendly and helpful staff. All or meals were delicious. I had the quasadilla and my husband the beef combination. Both really good choices. Highlight was the desert. Chilli ice cream was delicious

Looking for some nice place to have lunch and decided to try Zargosa located on the corner of Camp and Sturt street. They have a good selection to choose from with GF options and a good lunchtime special for $15.00. We had the fajitas and veggie burrito. We really enjoyed our meal. Feeling very satisfied and quite full, we went... More

We quite enjoyed our meal here but it could have been a lot better, I think. While the staff were quite pleasant they were not terribly efficient; for example they did not bring us a drink while we were waiting for our table to be ready, until we asked; they did not wipe the table between courses. We had Mexican... More

First visit here after trying Cafe Meigas who were fully booked on a Thursday evening. Very dissapointing, Firstly, the service, well none to really speak about. After a long wait we asked to order our food, drinks and bill. Tasting platter of tapas was very tasteless and the calamari could have been a chicken nugget from the freezer. Mains uninteresting...

I keep trying Zaragosa as I love Mexican and Spanish, but over the years there has been a progressive decline in quality. On arrival we were placed in what I can only describe as the 'naughty corner'. A small table for four people, next to a sink and restaurant stock and boxes. Service was extraordinarily slow, to get someone to... More

Scott and his crew do a great job serving up terrific Mexican/Spanish food in a nice new venue. Pricing is up there but the quality is as good as you will get anywhere. We've been going for years. You need to book in Friday and Saturday.

I have been to Zaragosa a couple of times with groups of friends and it is fantastic. The menu is varied and reasonably priced. They offer s good range of drinks as well. The food is amazing! The atmosphere is very good and the staff have also been very friendly and helpful. I love their churros! Remember to book anytime... More

We visited Zaragosa recently, on a Saturday night, with friends. We have been many times, but only once before in their new premises. We are great supporters of local restaurants. The menu needs to be more creative, and authentic, as it is rather tired and average. The service is of a poor standard, which seems to be the norm in... More
