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.

We went here with friends last week and had a very nice meal. Warm and cosy atmosphere with very friendly and helpful staff. All or meals were delicious. I had the quasadilla and my husband the beef combination. Both really good choices. Highlight was the desert. Chilli ice cream was delicious

Looking for some nice place to have lunch and decided to try Zargosa located on the corner of Camp and Sturt street. They have a good selection to choose from with GF options and a good lunchtime special for $15.00. We had the fajitas and veggie burrito. We really enjoyed our meal. Feeling very satisfied and quite full, we went... More

We quite enjoyed our meal here but it could have been a lot better, I think. While the staff were quite pleasant they were not terribly efficient; for example they did not bring us a drink while we were waiting for our table to be ready, until we asked; they did not wipe the table between courses. We had Mexican... More

First visit here after trying Cafe Meigas who were fully booked on a Thursday evening. Very dissapointing, Firstly, the service, well none to really speak about. After a long wait we asked to order our food, drinks and bill. Tasting platter of tapas was very tasteless and the calamari could have been a chicken nugget from the freezer. Mains uninteresting...
