“Too "nouvelle cuisine"”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We had heard some very good stories about this restaurant but were quite disappointed. We had a 3 course menu, which tasted good, nut the quantity was way below par. No one asked whether we actually liked the food ... so we had to make our complaints ourselves. This I find very awkward for a restaurants that's supposed to be "top". Btw nothing was actually done with our complaints until we spoke to the owner (?) when paying; "Oh but we could have given you some more of that delicious meat" ... Disappointing!
Also some of the electric lights were off due to electricity failure (beyond the control of Zarzo). Our table was very dark and we could hardly see the food ... which was seen as an unpleasant coincedence for us by Zarzo ... For me it is unacceptable to discharge these things so easily if you pretend to be a top restaurant and you charge these prices.
My suggestion: go to Wiesen!

“Great evening out with a Spanish twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

We based our choice on local internet feedback, that seemed to be over-enthusiastic. But Zarzo fulfilled our high expectations in every way. Though not low cost, the food and wine are fantastic. Very high quality tastes, subtle and surprising!

For us the combination of modern architecture, a bit off-site location and waterfront dining made it surprisingly attractive!

“Nice, but too expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Nice, modern restaurant in a bit off-site location. Good, creative food, nicely presented. However portions are too small and the bill is in the end too high: for this amount you eat in 1 star Michelin restaurant. Total amount 50/50 food/wine. Water-arrangement of €5 per person is a cash cow.

“Amazing in every way!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Fairly new restaurant which opened begin 2013 but friends told us it would be amazing!

And it was... The food, service are of very high standard. Nothing we have eaten in the last couple of years comes even close to this place.

Ofcourse it;'s price is also above average but not to expensive for this quality!

Highly recommended!
