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.

This was my second year at the Mum & Me High Tea that Zimzala throw the day before Mother's Day, and just like the first year, I was very impressed with the standard of the food and service. My mum, grandmother and I had a wonderful table which faced directly onto the water, so the view was stunning. The tea... More

Booked a birthday lunch for my friend for Saturday. We arrived on time for our 12.30 booking. The food that followed was great and service good. But at 2pm, just as we were about to order coffees the bill was presented to our table and we were told we had to leave as they need to make way for High... More

Cronulla beach on the south side of Sydney is a beautiful place that more tourists should visit - and this restaurant is a great way to take it in. The food is a little pricey but the location is wonderful - so even if you just stop for a coffee it is worth it

Shoddy booking process that lead to them screwing up our booking and leaving us having to try get in somewhere else a week in advance of mothers day even though I had sent through a booking form more than 2 weeks in advance when there was plenty of space. Told me they contacted me to take a holding credit card... More

Zimzala is located right on Cronulla Beach with lots of glass for beach views. We were greeted with a glass of complimentary sparkling wine on arrival to help us celebrate our anniversary. A nice touch. Zimzala is a popular and quite a busy restaurant. It's not overly loud or crowded, but it is not intimate either. Our service was prompt... More

Within walking distance from where we live, we knew that the view from the restaurant will not disappoint. What's surprising is that despite the seemingly small dining area, we still felt like we are having our quiet, candle-lit dinner. Their food were amazing and fine dining quality.

This place was recommended to us so we decided to book this for our next family&friends catch up. It was a public holiday and pretty busy so service was a bit slow. The food just came out just in time before the kids started to get too frustrated. Pancake option for kids was ordered in adult size so they would... More
