“Good food, good value, great service”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

If you're looking for "big meat" in a hurry, this place is not for you. Wife and I had a date night ; were enchanted to find something different.

What we liked:
1. Skin-in-the-game: husband chef, wife maitre'd
2.complimentary pre- hors d'oevres
3. use of local food and flavours
4. good wine, competitively priced
5. Zanifa, maitre'd , strikes a good balance between professional and genuinely friendly welcome.
6.prix fixe
7. Inside parking

Improvements?
Limited menu, ( but that may be a strategy for keeping the prices affordable)
Dinner only...

Recommendation: make sure you have a booking; seating for 12-15 people.
This is "slow food" . Enjoy.

“Simply amazing!”
Reviewed 30 March 2013 via mobile

We went two nights ago to this beautiful place with a group of friends. Such a great dinner! Food, service, value... Everything was outstanding. They change the menu every week I think, so you can go often and will have a different experience every time. Don't miss the opportunity to have a phenomenal dinner with your significant one, with family, friends. You will enjoy it!

“A Gem!”
Reviewed 17 February 2013

We were enchanted by this intimate restaurant located in the L'Orchidee Boutique Hotel. Everything the first reviewer said we totally endorse! The owner/chef's presentations are the first clue you are in for a treat. Zanifa, the host and co-owner, is a local Trini who chatted easily about the local sights to see during our brief stay. She suggested a Merlot to pair with our dinner and it was perfect. We are hoping local's find their way to Zazou Bistro, since it would be a shame for it not to be successful because of it's location. There was an issue with their bank card processor because they just starting business; Zanifa told us to stop by the next day to settle our bill. There aren't many places where you would hear that! Trini hospitality at its best.
With only 2 or 3 course dinner choices, it makes this restaurant more expensive than if there were a la carte choices for a lighter meal.

“Trinidad's best (and only!) French bistro”
Reviewed 27 January 2013

We recently had a lovely dinner at ZaZou Bistro Moderne. It's new and not well known yet, but it is certainly a hidden gem in Port of Spain. Fantastic French cuisine priced for either 2-courses or 3-courses with suggested wine pairings that were spot-on. Everything we tried was delicious, but the Far Breton dessert really stole the show. The chef/owner and his wife are friendly and welcoming, as was the ambiance in the L'Orchidee Guesthouse where the intimate restaurant is located. Highly recommended!
