Zambra has been a staple in Asheville for a long time. The food is still good. I just think the menu has become uninspired and it is not as good as it used to be. With so many other great choices in Asheville there are...More

We experienced a sampling of the food and sangria on a previous food tour and knew we’d be back. Parking decks are about the only option nearby for cars. Restaurant is located downtown on a steep hill. Great vibe and ambiance as you walk in,...More

We stumbled across this little gem when walking around town. We sampled Pomegranate Braised Pork Spring Rolls (OMG!), grilled shrimp, soft shell crab, and pan rustico along with a few other things. Everything was delicious. We sat outside and the breeze blew gently through the...More

The courses were promptly coming out, usually about 7 minutes from order, the kitchen was immaculate, the staff was wonderful and friendly. I would highly recommend the gnocchi, one of the best dishes I’ve ever had.

Very good. Very nice selection of regular and specials Tapas. They have a wonderful wine selection either by bottle or glass. The atmosphere is great. Very comfortable kind of dark cavey feeling. This was our third time and will be back for more.

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

There were some kids there when we went if I recall. The atmosphere is definitely adult oriented.

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.
