“Poor Quality of food”

Viva Zapatas Mexican Restaurant
Ranked #75 of 110 Restaurants in Williamstown
Restaurant details
Reviewed December 23, 2012

It was my mistake not to have done a research or looked at the feedback and reviews before going out for a meal to this restaurant. Being in Williamstown's main restaurant drag we wrongly presumed it would be good. The main disapointemntwas that while the plates were very hot, the mains were absolutely cold as if just brought out from the fridge.

We manage a decent accommodation facility in WT, one of the best one's close by and often get asked for suitable places to dine at. We will certainly not be recommending this one.

There are so many good places ot dine at in wt, so please give this a miss. The only people who eat here are those whio

We had dinner and we were bitterly dissapointed. The food lacked freshness and simply didn't sit well in the stomach afterwards. Not very happy at all.

Everything was horrible.
1)Waitstaff ignored us when we entered, we stood there for two minutes waiting to be seated but they just didnt care to come over, my partner then asked where we could sit and was answered "Anywhere." by a staff member who then walked away.
2)Menus were not brought out for 10 minutes untill asked for...three times!
3)Food took forever to come out.. was cold and undercooked.
4)THEN the drinks came out, worst Sunrise I had ever tasted had to send it back for water, no apology or even anything said by the staff, they just took the drink and left. Then took 10 mins to get water.
4)Took 20 minutes and FIVE requests to get our bill. We did not tip.

Seriously, the worst place I have ever dined. DO NOT EAT HERE!!

We dined at this restaurant on a Sunday Lunch. The restaurant was not very busy inside but the alfresco dining was very popular. Across the road there was the monthly Craft Market so finding parking in the area was not easy. The restaurant is located close to the bay and as such there are pleasant water views.The menu has an extensive selection. We had entree consisting of trio of dips and mains included Quesadillas and Fajitas. The meals were okay but not spectacular and service of meals was quite prompt. The meals were washed down with some Margaritas. The street and area is packed with restaurants so there is an abundance of dining choices.

P.S. There are $2 Tacos on Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 2pm.
