“A Delight!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

What does one seek on an evening dining out? Delicious food, lovingly and creatively prepared? Naturally. But what other characteristics factor in? For many, the more polished and formal the atmosphere, so much the better, as though the quality of the experience is directly correlated to the relative "importance" of the setting. For such diners, Zaza's may not hold that much appeal. It is, in every detail, the personal manifestation of its irrepressively charming owner, Susie Roche, which means that yes, there is considerable passion for the product served on the table, but any hint of pretension will be absent. From the moment one enters Zaza's, and is warmly greeted by Susie herself, one feels secure in the knowledge that laughter and fun are as much a part of the menu as the other scrumptious offerings. This is a surefire recipe for a great evening!

“Must eat place in AMS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

Found this place via TA reviews and must say the restaurant and service are top-notch.

We made reservations online and ate late aroun 9:30-10 on saturday night, The restaurant is located in trendy area full of nightlife and bars.. . .but the food and service were amazing.

The owner Susie Roche welcomes you as you walk in and takes your order as well. .. and biy was the food amazing. My wife had Kataifi Gambas and I had the Lamb which was amazing! We would definitely highly recommend and make reservations in advance!

Come here to eat and then walk around and have a drink in the area!

“Excellent and well worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

We ate at Zaza's last year and returned in April of this year because we enjoyed the restaurant. It is an easy 5 minute walk from the number 16 or 24 tram stop on a side street with several other restaurants and bars. The restaurant is not big but the tables are not crowded together so you are not annoyed by other customers. Both the food and service were excellent. When we arrived at 7.45 (19.45) the restaurant was about half full. When we left at about 10.00 all the tables were taken. Each of the three of us were very satisfied with our starters, mains and desserts. The wine list, while not very extensive, should satisfy most people. The one brief negative was the shock I got when they put a very loud version of 'happy birthday' on the speaker system and brought out a dessert with a rather large sparkler on it. Cute,but a bit over the top. All in all an excellent experience and we will return when we return to Amsterdam.

The atmosphere was intimate and welcoming. The food looked fantastic and tasted incredible. A fab night. The location was also vibrant and there were plenty of lively bars around. I would highly recommend it.

“Amsterdam”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

Took the plunge based on Trip Advisor recommendations and have no qualms in highly endorsing. Everything was good - service - location - wine selection - price etc. etc.
The atmosphere was also very inviting
