My husband and I went to Zambra for our anniversary and it did not disappoint. When you arrive the atmosphere is sort of Spanish eclectic and not, on the surface what you think of for "date night", but don't judge, it is a great date...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.

Excellent tapas. We had the pork belly, calamari, beef tounge pastrami, hot tomato soup and some drinks. Our server was very helpful and attentive. I wouldn't change a thing.

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.

Description
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.
