We have just come home from the hard rock hotel Dublin where we dined in Zampas restaurant which was absolutely amazing. We never had Peruvian food before and it was just soooo good. From the moment we sat down we were looked after so well by the waiting staff we had the special 3 course meal with cocktails which were to die for all for €45 great value. Definitely a must while on staycation in Dublin we will be back 😃

My boyfriend and I visited Zampas to celebrate our anniversary, we were greeted at the door by Stephen who served us all evening. So kind and friendly. The food was delicious and they have a great deal on at the moment 3 course meal and 1 cocktail for 45euro per person. Couldn't go wrong. Great atmosphere and nice memorabilia to look at.

Attached to the Hard Rock Hotel we ate here to celebrate a birthday. While it was quiet due to the knock-on effects of covid19, this did not impact the quality of the food or service, or the atmosphere. A pleasant space with booth-like seating making physical distancing easy. Food is full of flavour and plenty of wines by the glass. Sweet potato pancakes followed by a peruvian salad were full of flavour. Beef was tender, slow cooked. Sanitation was evident and staff very conscientious. There is also a bar/lounge area beside the restaurant where there was a dj. Some guitars and memorabilia line the walls making for a nice atmosphere.

When we got to the restaurant, the temperature was very high, I asked several times if they could regulate the temperature since the place was very hot and after 20-30 minutes they did it. We ordered Starters, main course, dessert, and a bottle of wine. The waiter took too long to serve the wine, I needed to ask for the bottle of wine 3 times. We ordered food and the waiter asked me how would I like my meat, I said medium well, but he never asked my wife. When the dishes arrived, my meat was red and my wife's was the same, we asked to cook more it and we could see the annoyance of the waiter and him cook at our request. The desserts left much to be desired, the pastes 3 leches were not milked at all, it was a tiny piece of cake with ice cream and a little caramel. We still hadn't finished eating when the bill came, I think it is very rude to do that and it speaks of a service that leaves much to be desired.

Myself and my husband attended here for breakfast around 10 a.m. Staff are lovely and friendly and helpful but so seriously untrained that the whole atmosphere of the restaurant is completely chaotic. We were waited on by three different people. We waited ages for the order to be taken. They had no croissants and this was at breakfast time. We ordered coffee and toast. Coffee came with no spoons. Toast came much later and by this time the coffee was cold. They should have come together or the toast should have come first. If this is an indication of what the service in the hotel proper is like I would be very reluctant to make a booking. With the proper training it could be improved very quickly.

Avoid, plenty of better options in the area! 4 of us dined at Zampas recently and it was one problem after another from arrival. Firstly the Greeter did not have any facial covering on which I found unusual (other staff did) but surely the front of house who is in contact with every customer would have the courtesy to wear a facial covering as advised by the government. Secondly it’s overly bright with a large tv showing sport, not exactly the restaurant vibe we were hoping for. Then the service, 25 mins seated without even a drinks order. 3/4 starters arrived and one starter arrived 15 Mins later. Presentation of dishes was good but service was poor. Dessert options very limited also. Finally, the Restuarant was very cold with air conditioning on at all times. Requests to alter this did not resolve the issue. Needless to say we will not be returning! Bull and Castle nearby is a far superior option as is the wonderful Corfu Greek restaurant nearby also!

We arrived and had a lovely server quickly come to take our order who honestly was the only good thing from the experience. Our first night in Dublin we were very excited to attend dinner where we were staying however once the manager approached we realised we were very unwelcome as did my friends. We were contradicted by what the server said by the manager whom made a point to make us feel silly! My friends are shy people so would have stayed quiet however wanted to make a point as the server was fantastic and the manager ruined the whole experience trying to embarrass us in front of other tables. Lovely hotel. Awful restaurant. Food bland.

Genuinely one of the best meals I’ve ever had, everything from the appetisers to the cutlery were nothing short of incredible. The steak for mains is without a doubt one of the best steaks I have ever had. The polenta chips were nice touch, You can tell that each dish was carefully designed and beautifully presented. Honestly if you like Food, then you will like here. If you love well made food, then you will love here. Zampas blew us away. Honestly, you need to make this your restaurant of choice. 5 stars all the way!!

We have visited Zampas restaurant in a special night for my girlfriend and myself. After a long walk in Dublin. We found in there a nice place to rest enjoy and talk. The food couldn’t be better. We ask for chicken burger, tacos and ribs. Everything delicious. Our waiter Gabriel makes us feel comfortable and recommended to order a three milk dessert, it was unreal. We didn’t find out fav cocktail, and ask to them and they did it for us.

This restaurant is near enough to the buzz of the city, yet far enough removed to make us feel that little bit less exposed to crowds and possible Covid. We were asked for our Covid certs on arrival. Staff wore masks. The restaurant is modern and spacious, with large booths to accommodate bigger parties. We were a party of six, and could easily have fitted more at our table. Service was excellent. Food was excellent. One of our party is vegetarian, and raved about the flavours in her dish. The chips were amazing. The tastiest I've ever had on my life. We were not rushed out of the restaurant. We arrived atv7pm and got to stay 'till closing. We just enjoyed the great wine and ambiance, and didn't have to venture further into town. We liked Zamba so much that we made sure to make some more reservations before leaving

Very attentive staff. Atmosphere was good, some great tunes but at the same time not so noisy so you can talk. Food was served fast enough. I had a roasted chicken, ceviche and alfajores. It's a great Peruvian-esque flavour, they mix Peruvian dishes with Irish ingredients. Will definitely return.

My family attempted to dine at this restaurant, I have commonly found allergies and a specific menu identified the allergens in each dish. Unfortunately the kitchen were unwilling to amend any dish on the mains section to allow me to eat so we had to leave. Disappointing given plenty of other restaurants in Dublin are willing to accommodate allergies.

Dear Rhiann, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Here in Zampas we love guest feedback. I would like take this opportunity to apologise on the behalf of Zampas team for the bad experience. We do treat allergen very seriously and after a quick investigation i have reason to believe that it was a miss communication between our staff on duty and we are truly sorry for the misunderstanding I hope you enjoyed the bottle on Fizz that was sent to your room during your stay at Hard Rock Hotel. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly at Bcarannante@hrhdublin.com

After lockdown we were looking forward to a good night out. Service in this restaurant is poor and person welcoming us was not wearing a mask. Food was average at best and we won’t be rushing back in a hurry!

My wife and I have 2 you kids. The staff couldn’t do enough to accommodate us and we are grateful for the experience. Fantastic food, excellent service (ask for Gustavo!) and the manager was on point! The steak was exceptional, the mash flavored brilliantly with subtle truffle and we were just looked after. The vegetarian option was just as delicious. This dinner marked a great start to our Dublin experience and sets a high bar for kids at restaurants. Thank you to waiters, manager and chef staff!
