Having read so many sparkling reviews of Zinzi, we were disappointed to find that the food was simply ordinary - it was not bad, just unmemorable and we will not be returning there.

Good food in a very nice setting. Attentive staff and plenty of choice on the menu. They do "small plates" so you could do a tapaz style meal if you prefer, rather than the traditional three courses.More
