Friends we were meeting up with had a recommendation to visit here for food. We would have just walked past if we weren't told which is such a shame because it is a lovely place. The food was really nice, it came quickly and was cooked well. We had great service from the waiters who were very good at their... More

Yes I was here round about a week ago and had that beetroot risotto too. More than once. As a vegetarian I thought - not another bloody risotto - because risottos tend to be a bit homogeneous. Not this one. It was all going on. Kept me engaged for 2 nights in a row. But after that I really couldn't... More

My wife and I have been coming here for 14 years now, even before we decided to have our wedding reception here 8 years ago. Every visit to the restaurant or to stay over night has never let us down. The staff, rooms, atmosphere and esp the food is worth the visit time and time again. Well done Team Zuni!!

There is a very pleasent ambiance to this restaurant. Staff are very welcoming and helpful. The food is good but portions are on small side. I had the cod which was nicely cooked and had a good flavour. But you had to order chips as side extra. My partner had the Beetroot Risotto which she said was very good. Well... More

We've eaten here on numerous occasions. Our experiences have never been nothing but excellent. Friendly and attentive staff, ambient bar area for pre- and post-dinner drinks and a lovely atmosphere in the restaurant. The food is simply stunning, tons of flavour in every course with a mouth-watering dessert menu. Every meal is a treat! Could not recommend highly enough!

Thank paulinos_1
