What a lovely outlook to enjoy while having delicious food at a reasonable price. Great range of meals from Seafood , poultry, meat and vegetarian , very well presented and a nice beverage range to match the meals offered. Reasonably priced for the location. I definitely would go back.

This is another good restaurant which suffered extensive damage when a storm surge inundated the restaurant last summer. It has bounced back well and there is no trace of the damage now left behind. The restaurant is right on the seafront so you can watch the Nippers whilst enjoying a coffee on a weekend morning. Highly recommended

had lunch here today with my wife and the location is just brilliant. Great view of the beach and a passing parade of people. The service and food was quite good, better than I had been led to believe. We enjoyed ourselves and if ever in Cronulla again (not very likely) we would return.

I usually don't write review, but unfortunately today I have to. Two friends and myself went for lunch in this beautiful location in front of the beach. The restaurant looked really nice and perfect for an easy lunch. When we sit down the 3 water glasses were dirty with lipstick on it. We ordered our entrees and 3 glasses of... More

The view is amazing but it's not all about location : the food is very good. It was our first visit, but not the last one ! Don't forget to book in advance.

I meet friends here about once a month for breakfast and have never had a problem with food or service. They are very accomodating with allergies and prices are reasonable. The view is just brilliant even on cloudy days, I never get bored with.

What can I say. We went here for our engagement party and it was amazing. Our waitress was amazing, the food was amazing. We had a beautiful day. I don't think our wine glasses were every empty. Just a sign of excellent service!

We had booked for 4 for a Sunday lunch - just as well as they were really busy. We had a great server who kept us going with wine, water and food. We had oysters, bread, rocket parmesan walnut salad, lobster mornay and salmon, the food was really good and then we also managed desert. All the while we had... More

Just back home from a family birthday celebration at Zimzala. The food was perfect. The staff could not have been more helpful and the atmosphere superb. I had the tacos for entree and the Zimzala Seafood pie for main. Both outstanding. I'm sorry I can't name the waiter but he looked Spanish or something and was excellent. Everybody's meals were...
