Faultless service, fabulous food, really interesting specialities, try the Botana "Papa Pepe" appetizer, great for sharing. The atmosphere, music and ambiance gave an authentic Mexican feel making the evening an experience rather than just a great meal. Even when there was the mandatory ‘happy birthday’ singsong by the staff it was delivered with genuine pzazz without the robotic style often endured in most restaurants. All round Zapatas delivers top class and great value.

Large quantities.
Lumpy rice. Boring beans.
The service was attentive and courteous.
The food was nothing special.

I went here on a business trip. I was expecting run-of-the-mill Mexican food. I found so much more. From the moment you walk in with its rustic setting, Zapata's creates a great atmosphere for Mexican food.

The refried beans are amazing: smooth tasty and not starchy.

I had the chicken taco salad for lunch. Though there wasn't enough guacamole for my taste, the overall taste of the salad was delicious.

And if you want to judge a restaurant by how clean it's restroom is or is not than this place is top notch. Well cared for and clean, even with the sinks wiped down.

They will come and make guacamole at your table! You can see them making the tortilla chips as well! The menu is extensive and has the classics, as well as lesser know speciality dishes. The place feels very Mexican and the staff are great! If you prefer a meat and two veg kind of a meal they do this very well, in a traditional Mexican way!

My husband and I go out of our way to dine at this restaurant, everything is delicious, the service is great, and the table side guacamole is not to be missed!
