“Poor quality and”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

After looking for a free table in several restaurants around the area on a busy August Saturday night we managed to catch a table at Zorba... No wonder how we got that place! First surprise, we were welcomed by a junior waitress who got our drinks order and, unbelievably, they had run out of both Coke and beer (any beer!) - never seen something like that anywhere, and it was not even too late (around 9:30PM). Then what seemed to be the senior waitress took our food order in a very rude manner, including sarcastic comments about the order, and again we were surprised as there were several dishes not available anymore (while the menu was quite short)... she even had to go ask in the kitchen if there was some ham&melon left... Bread was definitively not fresh (Eur 2.50/person cover charge) and the food was just OK. Overall, service absolutely below any minimum standard and prices inflated looking vs. average quality, while the lack of stock was really amazing.

“Great late bite.”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Enjoyed a late dinner here. The food was very good and the service good. They were closing up but still allowed us to come in and enjoy a meal. We did not feel rushed or pressured in any way.
