Focusing on the lush offerings of Southern California, while blending the flavors of the Latin and Asian cuisine, Pacific Hideaway features flavors drawn from the coastal hotspots throughout the Pacific. The menu, curated by Executive Chef JT Walker, features small and large plates, such as whole fried Tai Snapper served with an accompaniment of sauces, lush vegetables, and other accoutrements. The bar program incorporates central coast wine, sake, and cocktails utilizing ingredients from global coastlines, such as the Captain Barbosa, a hickory-smoked rum old-fashioned with savory notes of ancho chile and a hint of cinnamon syrup. Pacific Hideaway is in the Kimpton Shorebreak Hotel, located at 500 Pacific Coast Hwy in Huntington Beach, Calif.

The food was really interesting and tasty. Service was friendly, and there was a good cheap kids menu.

We had a really nice dinner outside on the deck. It was very pleasant. The staff was friendly. Our dinners were nicely prepared. We had a enjoyable evening.

We had such a lovely NYE at Pacific Hideaway. Warm outdoor seating with a view of the ocean and pier, delicious food and drinks, and delightful and knowledgeable staff. We're definitely returning soon.

Went there Christmas night. Loved the “Christmas Story” dinner. Reasonable prices & will make this place a favorite now. Great for special occasion.

In looking for a nice spot for Christmas dinner, we chose to give Pacific Hideaway a shot based on the advertisement of transforming the Restaurant into "A Christmas Story Theme". They tried but fell short, very short. False advertisement. No Christmas feeling at all here. No holiday decorations, annoying music playing, football on TV (btw when I called ahead to ask how they were incorporating this theme they said the movie A Christmas Story would be playing). Lastly, the "special" Chinese food menu had very small portions for family style and the fried rice was not fried rice at all. Steamed rice with soy sauce and shredded carrots with a strong vinegar taste. We made the best of it and enjoyed each other's company, but bad choice for a special nigjt in looking for a unique little Christmas dinner.

Went all the time when it was Zimzala. The new decor is very cute and the atmosphere is nice, however whatever they're attempting to do with the Asian cuisine is not working because it's really not good or authentic.

Really special menu of Asian Latin fusion. Really good food, and we sampled 10 thing.

Stuffed fries amazing, as was the beer can chicken and sausage lettuce wraps.

They were out of the whole fish we had heard about, but it was Sunday night.

This is the first bad review I've written in a very long time.

My wife and I tried Pacific Hideaway for our weekly Saturday night date.

The chorizo stuffed figs were great, as was my wife's hamburger. Unfortunately, I ordered the Pork Shank Adobo at $34. It was tasteless and overdone. No "Orange-soy braise, kaffir lime, or thai chili" to be seen or tasted.

We're not going back.

We often used to go to this place when it was Zimzula, but have not been there for over a year. Now, it is called Pacific Hideaway. It became a cozy restaurant with delicious food at a great location. Everyone found on the menu something to his preference. Laos Sausages and calamari were a must-try as appetizers. Our friends shared a pacific snapper(so fresh and juicy!), I had a seabass, and my husband had a beer-caned hen. I loved every single bite of my meal and my husband was bragging how good was his hen even the following day. I would definitely recommend this place!
