We had breakfast and lunch here a few times. The atmosphere is quite chilled, great for bigger groups and families. Food is much better than you get usually get in hotel restaurants but we found it a little on the expensive side and food takes a while to be served. Giving it 4 stars as the food has always been...

Had breakfast and dinner at this restaurant that is located in the Shorebreak hotel. The breakfast was actually pretty tasty with good variety. The dinner was just okay but very reasonably priced for a hotel restaurant. I had the Niçoise salad with ahi which was decent but with tons of poke places around, there are better options if an ahi... More

Meeting a client for breakfast, it was recommended that we meet at Zimzala for breakfast. Nice restaurant located on the second floor of the Kimpton on the Pacific Coast Highway. Little difficult to find with GPS. Valet parking required. Being a nice day, we chose to dine on their outdoor terrace. Nice menu with quite a few choices. Coffee and... More

He was attentive,friendly, and professional throughout the meal. Horatio did not miss a beat with providing exceptional service to my fiancee,myself,and our Golden retriever TED. From offering the four-legged friends menu for... More

We ordered their food via room service twice during our stay at the shorebreak. The breakfast was quite good and came promptly. The dinner however was horrible. Bland flavorless pizza and simple macaroni and cheese...took more than 45 minutes and showed up cold.

It has everything a restaurant needs; excellent service and excellent food. In fact, it has more. Zimzala has an awesome view of Main St.; which was pretty cool to see. I highly recommend this restaurant.
