“Ok if you like steaks”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

This was not a bad restaurant you got big portions but my steak (entrocote) was not particularly tender but my hubbys was very good I suppose you take your chances. Grill cooking was good to watch and the waitress was efficient and friendly ok for a try.

“Not so Good”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Having read the reviews we opted we gave it a try. Not up to scratch; not much atmosphere," iffy" service, no menu (we had to remember up to ten dishes), huge steak but very chewy and covered in Chilli flakes and oil (why?), house red wine just passable, interesting salads. Not a good experience so would certainly not recommend.

“Meat eaters apply within.”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Have you always gone away, only to find the best places on the last night???? Unfortunately it seems to be a particular talent of mine.

Myself & my girlfriend/partner/lodger stayed in the cordial valle apartments in November 2012. During our stay we explored some of the top restaurants on Tripadvisor. Surprised by some & disappointed by others.

Every evening we'd walk from our apartment & take about 15 - 30 minutes (depending on how hungry we were), wandering down the promenade looking at menus. Every night we walked past this quiet, reserved & understated restaurant, Zona something or other. As it didn't look like much from the outside we'd walk on past.

BIG MISTAKE. Don't be put off by its location or looks. This place is fantastic!!!!!

Lets face it, Mogan isn't a huge place so everywhere is within walking distance & trust me after eating here you'll be glad of the walk to your hotel/apartment.

We received a warm welcome on arrival & lead into the, garden? Surrounded with trees & lights you don't even notice any of the other external noise as there is a road quite close, but not a busy one. The array of side dishes were present like Tapas, as & when they were ready. These were delicious & a perfect start for the main course. I had been eyeing up the chateau brion since I walked in & convinced my girlfriend/partner/lodger, to go for it as its for two.

It arrived at the table on a long plate (approx 2 feet) after being sliced & cooked perfectly on the outdoor BBQ which sends mouth watering aromas up to fill the air.

In short ; Don't leave it till your last night as we did, in case you enjoy it so much you want to return.

Do, book in advance as it only seats about 40-50 people, but definitely do try it.

Service is a little slow but always friendly & that is the only small down side I could think of. Enjoy ;-)

“Wonderful”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We absolutely loved Zona Verde. The atmosphere -.in a small enclosed garden was lovely, the staff friendly and the food ...... SENSATIONAL. The Chateaubriand was unbelievable - we had it twice and the fillet superb. The salads after three visits became a bit boring, a choice would have been nice, but they were good. This was our favourite restarant in Mogan

“The best restaurant in puerto Mogan”
Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

This is the 2nd time we've eaten here. The first time was in sept 2011. The food is amazing. We've literally just eaten there and the salads are so nice. The meat is cooked to perfection. The service is fab. This only downside is the owners are going away on Wednesday for a month so we can't go again whilst we're here this time.
