2 dinners 3 months apart, without a single miss among the 8-10 tapas ordered. Pleasant atmosphere, very good service. Our favorites: arugula salad, chargrilled octopus.

We really enjoyed Zambra's for dinner. The atmosphere is quirky and fun and our waitress was great! The sangria she recommended was unique (cloves and cinnamon made it taste like Christmas) but we loved it. We ordered a variety of tapas and all of them...More

I would say probably not. It’s very European and I’ve never seen children there. Also has a busy bar scene.

Description
Our dynamic menu is the passion of Executive Chef Adam. Adam has attained many influences through his training in Europe and New Orleans. Zambra is his modern vision of the tastes and flavors of the western Mediterranean: Spain, Portugal, Gypsy, and North Africa. As an appropriate accompaniment, we have assembled the region's finest selection of Spanish and New World wines. We have been awarded the Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence and our wine list has been voted the best in Asheville.
