I had to return my main course because the sauce was so burnt it was inedible. I had to wait 20 mins for another dish as the rest of the group completed their mains. Genuinely disappointed as rest of dinner was excellent.

We celebrate my husband birthday in Zaks. Dinner was simply amazing from start to finish. The quality was excellent and each dish was presented beautifully. The staff were friendly, professional and efficient. Looking forward to returning and trying some other dishes out.

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Zaks restaurant. We had two set menus at 27€ each (3 courses with really big portions) - great value for money! - and a chateaubriand for two, which was also very delicious. Very good service as we'll. I'd definitely...More

Lovely food. Lovely setting. Think though the management need to improve the bar. They ran out of Guinness Budweiser and a few others in the afternoon and it was a small wedding. Poor selection of drinks. Staff were nice particularly the waitress.
