My title of this review may be harsh - although is what my friend actually said during the evening along with some other expletives which I won't put up on this post. However, tonight's experience at Zaragosa has been one of the worst experiences we have had for many years. We ordered 3 tapas meals (only 1 of which was... More

We did a walk in here as we were looking for a quick tapas meal before the show at Sovereign Hill. There were 4 of us and we received great service. I had fajitas which were tasty and filling and 2 others shared a tapas plate which was ok but nothing amazing. The final dish was a paella which was... More

We've been to Zaragosa a few times recently. The first time the burritos were fantastic and the fajita did not disappoint, (although Fajita's are hard to get wrong). The second visit felt like the burrito's were re-heated and they were dry and wasn't great at all. However, we are willing to give it another go. Perhaps on a different day!

But that was where it stopped the best part of the meal and most flavoursome was the corn chips and salsa provided free of charge. The sangria was ok, the guacamole was very good but the Spanish pie had no flavour and the enchiladas were " the most bland thing" was my wife's comment

We walked into Zaragosa on a Saturday night and were able to get a table straight away. We ordered the Nachos with beef to start which were very generous as we had been advised by the waitress to get the smaller plate. The nachos were good with a good helping of guac and salsa. This was washed down with some... More

I had been wanting to go to this restaurant for quite a while and when I recently got a table here with my wife and friends I was looking forward to a good meal. Oh boy was I disappointed. We ordered 4 tapas plates, only one of them possibly being Spanish. Could have bought the calamari at any pub in... More

We had my birthday dinner last night and shared nachos and tapas all washed down with sangria. Zaragosa is a regular for us and it never disappoints. The only thing we miss is the ambience of the old premises. Could not fault the service.

We really enjoyed a tasty night out. We had the kids and felt like the chef designed a perfect children's menu making the Mexican choices palatable for delicate mouths. As adults we enjoyed the more spicy treats and didn't feel like we were as far away from Mexico as were.
