One of our favorite places. Right on the water front with great friendly staff serving great food. I had the seafood curry and my wife had the seafood pie. Both great meals well presented.

We have been here many times for brekky, lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed. They also occasionally have deals for a set menu dinners which is great value. You can't beat the view since you're basically on the water!

A special place with views across Cronulla's beaches and wonderful food. We have been to Zimzala on many occasions and had wonderful food and service. Restaurant prices, but well worth it. We'll be back again.
