We've been to Zapatas a lot over the years and it remains one of our favourite Mexican restaurants. Unfortunately the food tonight wasn't *quite* as good as it usually is, the pork ribs lacked sauce and service was a little slow. The enchiladas and the chocolate donkey were excellent though!

Very nice restaurant. Have been coming here for years and they are always consistently good. Staff were very helpful and listened to us when we asked for the heater to be turned down.

Nice food - nice ambience Too many over eager waiting staff asking if we wanted to order - we were asked by 4 staff in about 2 minutes! Guess it's better than not getting served? Felt a little rushed as a result. Reasonable value...

The food is always excellent at Zapatas. Our waiter was especially good last night - he was very friendly and that made our dinner out even better.
