The place is very hip. They have something for everyone. Lots of gluten free dishes and where my wife, who can't eat certain foods, they accommodated her and said just about any dish can be prepared to avoid her food allergies. The seafood, pasta dishes and meat was very very tasty. The dishes were not heavy and just the right... More

My family ate at Z Gastro Bar tonight, expecting a typical family dinner. We got so much more out of our dining experience. The waiter was extremely pleasant. He tended to our every need and provided great conversation for us. Every one of my family members enjoyed their delicious meals. I can't recommend this place enough. GREAT!!!

Our group was hot and tired when we lucked into the Z Gastro Bar. Beautiful view of the marina, great service and very attentive wait staff. Will definitely go back. Highly recommend the Cappuccino slushy to quench your thirst.

Came here for dinner on our last night. The staff is attentive and very friendly. The decor is fantastic as well. We both had cold melon and prosciutto soup to start. The soup was a refreshing start given the heat and humidity of the day. My wife had the ceviche which she said was fantastic. I had the jumbo shrimp... More

We had dinner last night. The Marina was wrapping up a fishing tournament. But the restaurant was nice and quiet. The wait staff is perfect. Both dinners were excellent. We had Sangria and a Mojito and they were also excellent. I would highly recommend this place.

We always try to go to nice places for lunch and dinner during our vacations. We love great experiences, not only the food (which is important as well obviously). This place exceeded our expectations, both with the food, service, pricing, everything was just great. Highly recommend this place. We actually went back the next day in order to try more... More

Just stopped for coffee mid morning. Sevice was slow considering there were very few customers. Coffee was not that good. Appears to want the boating and sailing clientale as prices somewhat on the high side.

On our initial visit we had a wonderful fun evening with our tour group and we had their amazing seafood platter. We enjoyed it SO much that we went back again as a couple and had, yes you guessed, another seafood platter! A lovely trendy open sided restaurant with a good atmosphere. There was even an hourly shuttle service to... More
