Diner Reviews
  • "This was the best location for a party of eight to have a breakfast birthday meal. We wanted to sit on the patio so we could see the pier, but the morning was chilly so they even provided blankets! The food was excellent. Service could not have been better! I highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "Food and service were great. Had our dog with us so we ate on the patio. Very pet friendly. We had the Moroccan chicken and Seabass. Both were very good and tasty. Will definitely return."

  • "This was the second time we've been there. Food is mediocre and service was good last time but this visit was not. Probably will be going elsewhere next time we stay at Shorebreak."

  • "We had brunch here after staying at the hotel the night before. There was no wait and we sat outside on the patio. We had two kids with us and they had a blast playing with all the dogs out on the patio while we enjoyed breakfast. The food was fresh, large portions and very good! I highly recommend."

  • "This was our first time in the dining room. We had been in the bar for appetizers and wine previously and knew we wanted to go back. The dining room is unusually modern and relaxed and we enjoyed the special seating which created a very relaxed and easy atmosphere. The food was great---my fish was undercooked and they took care of it right away after explaining that it was a thicker filet than expected and brought me a brand new plate. The waiter was fabulous---again, relaxed but knowledgeable. We felt as though we could have sat there all night. We are going back with two other couples so looking forward to sharing this new "find"."

  • "If you haven't tried this place, you must! Great food, great drinks, great service, great crowd, great music! I have been to each and every establishment on (and off) Main street so I felt that I had to give this a fair shot, even though it was in the hotel. I'm going back soon and I will continue to recommend this place to everyone. Everything we ordered was incredible. (Had a taste of it all!) Pork chop, scallops, grilled cheese, flat bread, the cocktails, and then the dessert! The service was spot-on by all who waited on our party. Thanks for a great night, see you soon!"

  • "A large group of us came to Zimzala for a Holiday dinner. We are all on budgets, so we chose the least expensive wine by the caraf. They were out of it, so we chose the next affordable bottle. They were out of that as well. The manager was kind enough to let us order the next price-level up and gave us a discount, which was appreciated, BUT, it took 40 minutes from when we sat down before we were actually served our wine. That was disappointing. The group ended up ordering salads and sharing appetizers. All the food was good - especially the cheese fondue. I would rate the restaurant a bit higher if we hadn't experienced the problem with the wine and the slower service. I would return again, but only for a special occasion, as it is pricey."

  • "I set up the dinner a couple nights before the event. They called me the next day to confirm my reservation which was nice because I needed to add more people and they were very nice about it. When I got to the dinner, the table was set in the back away from other guests so we can be loud and not interrupt anyone else dining there. The table was set, waters were ready. Service was good, not as attentive as I am use to but because it was a birthday dinner she gave us some time to talk. Food was great. It was all brought at the same time. They even brought me a birthday dessert at the end. Love the atmosphere and ambiance of the restaurant. I come here a lot and always know I am going to have a great time."

  • "Dined here for thanksgiving dinner. The fixed menu was a little limited but offered enough choices. The food was tasty and well presented. It's very convenient located inside the Shorebreak Hotel. Next time we will try the appetizers which looked great."

  • "My wife and I were staying at the Shorebreak Hotel and did not feel like venturing out for dinner. We had heard that Zimzala was good, so made reservations through OpenTable. We were shown a few tables, all by open doors to the cold and windy outdoors. The doors were open to make it easier for the servers to get to the people dining al fresco, under heaters. We weren't under heaters though, as we were indoors. They finally put us by a weak fireplace. Luckily, we had our coats. The food was good. I had a wedge salad, my wife a pear salad. Then we had flatbreads and a sandwich. Very low key, but very good."

  • "Service was efficient, friendly & timely, just enough to anticipate& meet our every need without being the least bit hovering. Very nice. The place is comfortable & welcoming. Food was very good, just not stunning but prices were reasonable. Service & atmosphere did it for us. We'll be back."

  • "Who would expect living in downtown Huntington Beach to find such a fine restaurant, especially one in a hotel? Most of the many restaurants in town offer ordinary fare, but Zimzala seems to have perfected fine cuisine, great service, reasonable prices and a delightful atmosphere to make a memorable dining experience."

  • "Their pretzels are Amazing! We have to get them every time we are there for dinner. Their flat bread pizza is great, so is their sweet potato tator tots. We will be back again & again because it's a great place to enjoy great food with our dog."

  • "First time here and very pleased. The surroundings are comfortable and open. The service started out a little slow but improved greatly when I told our server we were kinda in a hurry (which we were). The food was served hot as it should be and everything tasted good. My guest and I are were quite happy with the whole experience. We would definitely recommend and would go back."
