The teriyaki salmon is AMAZING but all the other dishes I've had are just alright. The beer selection is good tho. We are frequent patrons because the Salmon really is worth it. They display local art... which I really enjoy.

Z Cafe was the first place I found in Bonsall that has great food and great servers. They make a really good Capuccino and the Hawaiian Salad is so big a family could share. Great atmosphere and lovely art on the walls.

I ordered the Teriyaki chicken bowel and it was amazing. The owner appears to be Hawaiian so the food has that flair. More than enough food. Fast service. My ice tea never went empty. Their salads are yummy as well.

This may be my brother-in-law's favorite dining establishment in Bonsall. The portions give him two meals. Dinner one day and lunch the next. Depending on the time of day it can be quiet dining or a bit rauckus. In either case the food is very...More

As far as I know they do take reservations. Would be wise if you have a group. For 2 it wouldn't be that long of a wait.
