The restaurant is located on the second floor of Shorebreak Hotel. The hotel itself appears to be pretty nice. They have a wine hour in the afternoon and it seems as... More

Pgalido - Thank you for the shout out - on both platforms! We look to finish out the year as Zimzala, with some fresh F&B coming in 2017. Stay tuned, as I am confident we are going to rock the downtown area! More

Had lunch on the patio while waiting for my room to be ready. The fish tacos were great and the pretzel bites with the beer infused cheese were really good too. Went back for breakfast and the breakfast burrito was awesome and large.

We've been here a few times and the food is very good. The hummus appetizer was amazing!! Last night we sat on the patio and brought our dogs. The waitress was totally friendly to them and immediately brought them a bowl of water. They even have a dog food menu. Our appetizers and entrees were very good and so were... More

This was a little hard to locate at first because it is on the 2nd floor of the hotel & shopping area. It is a cute place with a large outdoor seating area where puppies are allowed. It is partially covered so you could sit in the open or not depending on the weather. Their food menu does not really... More

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
