Within walking distance from where we live, we knew that the view from the restaurant will not disappoint. What's surprising is that despite the seemingly small dining area, we still felt like we are having our quiet, candle-lit dinner. Their food were amazing and fine dining quality.

This place was recommended to us so we decided to book this for our next family&friends catch up. It was a public holiday and pretty busy so service was a bit slow. The food just came out just in time before the kids started to get too frustrated. Pancake option for kids was ordered in adult size so they would... More

We visited as a group of 8 for a special occasion for am evening meal. Each meal was amazing and everyone was impressed by the standard of food. The views are top class, although it was a cool and wet evening, it was comfortable and the views were impressive. I'd happily recommend to friends and will visit again in the... More

Great food, service and even better views. Ideal for taking out-of-Towners to lunch or dinner. You won't get closer to the surf than here.

Busy, inside and out, a passing parade of beach bodies, great location. They only allow a 2 hr window for a meal , but it fits, service was excellent, friwendly, helpful, efficient. Food was good, beachside casual. Freshly cooked. Cronulla on a Sunday .. the only drawback.

We went for a "mini-anniversary" lunch for fun. We'd both walked past Zimzala and had heard good things, and we were keen to try it out. The weather on the day in question had regular rain and was quite cool. We were warmly welcomed and shown to a table with a great view near the (open) windows. The service was... More

Zimzala has always been one of my favourite restaurants in Cronulla and I've had many breakfasts, lunches, dinners and functions there but my last couple of visits have been very disappointing. Last night I booked to take some friends at 8pm. We arrived at 8.05pm and were told there were no tables available yet. We sat outside until 8.45pm and... More
