    We have been to Zuaya a few times now and every time we receive outstanding service. They even surprised us with a complimentary dessert with ‘happy anniversary’ written on it which was a nice touch! We keep going back for the raspberry gazpacho, please bring it back to the menu :) We always have a great experience there and it pains me to say that the pornstar martini tasted like cough syrup and I will not be ordering this again. But the food is amazing! The pleasant ambiance and excellent customer service really makes a difference and we will be back. Thank you!

    We expected a Restaurant but it was more of a tapas bar. The “Carte” was all labeled “Tapas”. We went there for Dinner at 5p.m. before a R.A.H. event. The Tapas were well cooked and presented. Of course they were small portions, but again modified to adjust british taste as it happens mostly in London, meaning dishes that were not supposed to be sweet were sweetened.

    We can't believe all the exceptional reviews. We ate there last night. Ordered martinis from their "classic cocktail" page--they don't have olives, apparently on purpose. The drinks came after our first course was delivered, which worked out ok because the food they brought was not what we ordered. When we received our first course, it was missing an item, which in fairness they did remedy. The dish--prawns--was bland and the prawns were mushy. We also had a dish of flavorless lamb chops. The bread "basket" for 6 1/2 pounds is two slices of bread cut in half. Again in fairness, the bread was good, as was the butter that came with it. We also had a fair tomato salad. But all in all, the food was bland and the service subpar. We were actually tempted today to go to an Italian restaurant next door to this one, but then saw that it's a "sister" restaurant, so decided to avoid it.

    Food and atmosphere was lovely. One of the best creme brûlées I’ve ever had. The various tapas were all great especially the ceviche, octopus and pork belly. Will definitely visit again. A last minute booking but a great find.

    Lovely aesthetics inside. You can sit upstairs or downstairs. It’s much smaller than I thought though. The drinks were great! Definitely get the raspberry gazpacho! best dish we had all night. I would rate that a 5 and the rest of the tapas were lie 3.5. It’s nice for a midweek dinner. Because it was so busy we had to wait a fairly long time for our starters and to get the bill but I would definitely recommend. It’s a beautiful place glad I finally ticked it off my list.

    My friends and I had a brilliant evening, having not seen each other for 3 years or so. The hostesses were very friendly and when our drinks took a little longer than usual to arrive, we were given a complimentary glass of cava. The food is delicious and I couldn't fault any of the dishes. My friend's dessert was also decorated given that she has just gotten engaged so thank you for all the attention to detail.

    An excellent meal all around. We sat outside, and the street was a bit noisy for me, but everyone else in our party was delighted. Of course, the Lamb Taco and Wow-the-Bao we're superb as always. I finally tasted the quinoa salad. I never was much for quinoa, but this salad has turned my view upside down. It is simply the most exquisite dish on the menu! The delicate flavours are remarkable, subtle, and exotic. The service is prompt and helpful, and carefully unintrusive. The weather was beautiful, and al fresco was a great way to enjoy this dinner. I can not recommend this restaurant too highly for relaxed, comfortable, and joyous, casual dining with good friends.

    Service was excellent and attentive. We sat outside which was slightly noisy given the location but still fine. The food was ok, sweet potato crisps were excellent, fried calamari rings were too oily and given the portion sizes, it was very overpriced.

    Food was ok service even if the restaurant was empty it was just me and my wife and one more couple they push us out at 22:15, they put the lights up they were rushing to get order for food and drinks I had to ask for attention, staff was standing by the bar chatting and no attention to details. They did ask us if we want dessert or anything else just throw to us a anniversary plate with an ice cream bowl. Average experience, also if I make a booking at 21:30 the duration of the meal is 2H so I should be out by 23:30 not 22:15.

    Amazing food, great menu. Service was not as attentive as I'd expect (having to call waiting staff over every time for ordering drinks, food, dessert menu, dessert), but, this also allowed for a really relaxed meal, better than being rushed though the courses
