Food was great but the service
Food was great but the service was just a little off. It wasn't the waitress' fault. There weren't enough servers and this restaurant really starts hopping between 6:30 and 7:00 p.m. Overall it a quite enjoyable experience. We really enjoy going to this restaurant.

A Pleasant Surprise
My wife and I dined at Zuzda's purely on a whim. We had some doubts on entering the restaurant because the surroundings are not very impressive. It is poorly lighted. However, the food more than made up for the surroundings. Our waitress was very good -- knowledgeable about the menu, helpful, friendly, and efficient. We followed her recommendations and were delighted with each. The food was really something special. We had gazpacho, salad, tempura vegetables, corvina, and chicken Francesa. The tempura was delicious -- crispy and not greasy. The corvina was the best fish I have ever had. Every dish was delicious. We had a key lime tart for dessert. The wine list offered good choices. The experience was a pleasant surprise.

Tops for Tapas
Everything we had was delicious...so much so that we cancelled other reservations to eat there again during our trip.
The freshness and quality were amazing!!!

My wife loves this place because of the "small plate, try anything" concept. This time we had entree specials though, fresh catch, mine was a locally caught bass, she had Alaskan salmon, and they were both excellent.

We had such a great experience at this restaurant! The food was spectacular and the service was outstanding! We come to banner elk often but this was the first time we had eaten at Zuzda, we will definitely be back next time we are in town! The selection on the menu was awesome as well, I highly recommend the seafood paella!!

We went with some friends and had a great time. The service started out very slow but it got much better as the evening progressed. We sampled several things and like almost everything. We loved the trout, rissoti chicken, squid and morrocan sausage. We didn't like the fried oysters(verystong taste) or the calamari and bang bang shrimp- both were too breaded

New waitress, kitchen behind
New waitress, kitchen behind on orders, seemed confused, spotty delivery of food.

Tapas in the mountains
Nice array of generous sized tapas. Tapas array from vegetarian to poultry to meats to seafood. We had soft shell crab, almost as an experiment for mountain fare, and were quite pleased. Decent, but not exorbitant wine list.

Food was great, service excellent and the brownie for the birthday girl a nice touch.

Zuzda is our favorite restaurant in Banner Elk. We always have dinner there when we travel to the area.

It's always great, tables
It's always great, tables a little too close. I think the owner should think about make some changes inside to make more room

Great menue, interesting wine list
We didn't expect to find such an interesting men u, especially for us vegetarians, in such a small town. The Veggie Tempura was perfect as were the sauteed mushrooms and the stuffed artichoke hearts. My carnivore husband enjoyed the steak dish too. When the kale turned out to be bitter, it was whisked away, and the charge removed from the bill. Loved the pinot gris from Oregon. Nice cosy atmosphere for me, my husband felt a bit claustrophobic. Very comfortable chairs.

Great food AND service.
This was our first visit to Zuzda (and to Banner Elk). Everything we ordered was delicious, and the service was friendly, efficient and perfectly timed. And the Pineapple Tempura was the perfect finish to a fine meal.

Dinner was good. Exceptional soft shell crab, especially since we were not on the coast. Creme brûlée and cheese cake were especially good.

We found Zuzda's a few months ago. We had not eaten tapas before and were excited to try it. We were amazed at the amount of choices on the menu.The food was very good. We have since been there two additional times and brought other people with us. All have enjoyed the food as well as the atmosphere. We will definitely go back.

We love this restaurant. Often tapas has a Spanish flair. We really enjoy that Zuzda does not. There are so many delicious tapas to choose from. The almond crusted trout was cooked to perfection. The filet is always a top choice. The brie with caramel sauce is talked about for months to come. We first were here a year ago and talked about it for a year and finally made our way back up to visit. It was just as good as we remembered if not better! Perfect anniversary celebration.
