Influenced by Mediterranean street food, La Zeppa delivers classic dishes with sensational flavour. Grab your friends and dive into a huge selection of tapas plates. Or choose a sharing platter or large plate if you’re feeling extra hungry.

Amongst the tapas selection, you’ll find Mediterranean delights such as Sesame-Crusted Beef Kofta, Lamb Pinchos with Walnut Tarator, Pork Cheek Croquettes and Pea and Mint Arancini with Goats Cheese. The large plate menu will tempt you with the rustic flavours of Paella, Lamb Rump or Baked Celeriac with Mushroom and Kale.

A really nice, cool restaurant. Food was delicious, the staff were incredibly nice and the views from outside are stunning! Would highly recommend visiting. We went as a couple and it was really lovely but they seem to also cater really well for groups too!

A lovely evening with nice food and wine. Service was really great. I bet this place is busy Fri/Sat night. Looks like a great place for a group for dinner or drinks.

The waiting staff were welcoming from the moment we stepped in. The environment was a little too dark but the vibe was amazing. We dined on Friday so the general atmosphere was relaxed and lively. We ordered 5 Tapas and 1 main dish from the menu. The tapas arrived quickly and they all taste lovely. I would like to highlight the sesame crusted beef kofta and the grilled broccoli. For mains I had the lamb ramp, which was perfectly cooked. It was an overall excellent dining experience and I would recommend La Zeppa to my friends.

Really lovely dinner right next to an awesome central fireplace. The food was great...particularly the beef rib and pork belly! Even though the place was quiet (it was only 6pm!), it had a great atmosphere...although very dark (which I particularly love). The staff were lovely... welcoming and friendly, yet professional and efficient. Had a very pleasant evening. Would happily pay full price to dine there again.

Food was amazing and the staff were so great.

Only thing is it was a little dark and I couldn't read the menu. But did like the intimacy and vibe the dimmer lights bought. Just couldn't read the menu.

The food was very good. Lighting is very “moody” very hard to read menu. Perfect for romantic date.

The restaurant is very cosy especially on Friday evening when you want to find a place that is nice and quiet to catch up with old friends. Food was great but it took a bit too long to be served.

Great restaurant. Really nice atmosphere, the service is really good, food to share and carefully prepared. I'd recommend ordering a few tapas to share and if still hungry a main with sides. The only down point is that our sides came way before the mains despite making clear we wanted them together. Unfortunately we couldn't sit outside in the deck as it was being used for ads shootings, however the internal area and fireplace are really comfy too. Worth a visit!

The food was absolutely amazing! For two people we ordered seven tapas to share and we had full bellies by the end of it. There's a great range of meat and vegetarian options so there's something for everyone. The vibe is moody and chic, quite dark in some areas but options to seat where there is some more light to read the menu.

What a great first first table experience! La Zeppa has a fantastic vibe, nice decor, fire in the middle of the room & lovely deck to enjoy the sun set. Our waitress was super friendly and helpful. We ordered a main and 5/6 tapas. They all come out fast and were very yummy. My favourite being the green beans. The strawberry mocktail .. Delicious. We ordered four. Make sure you try it!
Over all a great experience. Thanks :)

Delicious food, great service, and an amazing ambience. La Zeppa is a great restaurant for anyone's date night.

Would definitely recommend, and the availability for 6 pm dining rather than the usual earlier dining spots on this website is ideal.

The apple empanadas on the dessert menu are delicious, they're enough for me to want to go again.

I've been here for drinks but never food so I was pleasantly surprised at how amazing everything tasted! We got a variety of small plates and they were all delicious, except for the lamb which was slightly tougher than the waitress led us to believe it would be.

We were in a rush, running late ( traffic etc) but arrived to find a fantastic gem. It was tranquil and comfortable. The food was amazing. We love tapas ( me particularly- nothing better than drinks and nibbles!) and have been several times to others around town but this was by far and away the best. Well done
