We stopped here on a food tour around downtown Asheville. Great food, popular sangria (just not our personal taste), and romantic atmosphere. We are not fans of the incense smell in the restaurant, but it is said to be the most romantic spot in all...More

Excellent food, excellent service. Wait staff knows the menu and is very helpful. Great wine selection. Best tapas in Asheville, and there is stiff competition here. You can’t go wrong here. A must try.

If you look on their permanent menu (on the website), some of the dishes show two prices. The second price is for the item as an entree. We were told the entrees were quite large and are sometimes split.

Our dynamic menu is the passion of Executive Chef Adam. Adam has attained many influences through his training in Europe and New Orleans. Zambra is his modern vision of the tastes and flavors of the western Mediterranean: Spain, Portugal, Gypsy, and North Africa. As an appropriate accompaniment, we have assembled the region's finest selection of Spanish and New World wines. We have been awarded the Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence and our wine list has been voted the best in Asheville.
