Zimzala has a great bar area and outside seating to take advantage of their limited ocean view. The service and the food quality need to be more consistent. The weekend entertainment makes for a fun stop here. The bar does a better job on service and the drinks are excellent.

Not a bad place for a snack or lunch. It's very much a TGI Fridays quality but the staff was great. It makes up for the lack of amazing food.

Zimzala is a pretty decent spot hidden away near busy Main St in Huntington Beach. While it's only a street away from Main, the street is always usually empty. The restaurant is located on the second floor of Shorebreak Hotel. The hotel itself appears to be pretty nice. They have a wine hour in the afternoon and it seems as... More

Had lunch on the patio while waiting for my room to be ready. The fish tacos were great and the pretzel bites with the beer infused cheese were really good too. Went back for breakfast and the breakfast burrito was awesome and large.
