I was pleased by the portion size. With food that tastes this great, a large portion is needed. Good value for money too.

My wife and I made our 2nd attempt on 8 June 2014 at Zara's after a previous disappointing visit. We were served by 4 different waitors/waitresses this time - our first waiter who took our drinks and food order we never saw again. After our drinks arriving and asking twice as to the whereabouts of our food, it eventually arrived. Cold chips, cold veg burger and my wife's chicken dish ice cold. Clearly our food had stood for a considerable period somewhere. The older manageress was exteremely rude to us as though it was our fault. We will never try Zara's again. Many are complaining of the rudeness of this older lady if one "dares" to raise a complaint. Truly disgusting.

Zara's is the best coffee shop in Ballito. They have an excellent menu that has good value for money. There is always a nice vibe and you can sit back and relax while you enjoy your meal or just something to drink. The manager and owner are always keeping an eye on the quality of the products that are served and she are always willing to chat with you.

Was a regular here but after today's poor service & the utter rudeness of the staff who "served" us, I won't be going back!

Every time we go to Ballito we make sure we visit Zara at least once during our holiday for their delicious chocolate croissants. The service is good and the managers are very friendly. Your holiday in Ballito is not complete without a chocolate croissant from Zaras Café!
