Hidden inside a lovely courtyard, (on the main plaza) is Lebanese restaurant. We tried the assorted plate which included a variety of dishes, all with authentic flavors. A vegetable salad was also fresh and tasty with an original dressing. The owner, the great-granddaughter of a Lebanese immigrant is cheerful and friendly

This restaurant came recommended from someone that my wife knows in the area. As she stated "Other places have their ups and downs but at Zarina, you're never disappointed." We decided to give it a shot. It is located in a charming old Spanish home (along with a number of other restaurants) called Villa Quintero, right on the main square.... More

The food was spectacular! Some of it almost seems like a mix of Mediterranean and Asian cuisine and it worked very well. Lots of great options for vegetarians.

Pleasant courtyard seating in common area shared by three different restaurants. We had two separate combination platters so all told we tried about 15 different dishes. We thought everything was very good/tasty other than the falafel. Our server was quite pleasant.

Lovely staff fitted us in on a busy NYE. Food was very good and we never felt rushed to leave despite a constant stream of hopeful diners. Recommended.

We got to VDL really hungry and Zarina was a place we found fast. We didn't expect anything and the food was really good, specially the trout with almond sauce.

It is a small well located restaurant. The menu is not so big but the dishes are well prepared. The trout with apple sauce is perfect. It has not the best wine seller in town but you can stand it. The service is excellent.

We absolutely loved this restaurant. The place is beautiful, inside Casa Quintero which is a huge colonial house with many other restaurants and shops, and right off the main square in Villa de Leyva. The food was spectacular, I had the beef medallions and my husband had the trout, both cooked to perfection, with very fresh ingredients. The service was... More
