Zimzala Restaurant in Huntington Beach

Introducing Zimzala Restaurant and the beautiful Shorebreak Hotel now open in Huntington Beach..All I can say is Go, Go, Go..really!

Located across from the beach in Surf City USA, Zimzala is a Huntington Beach restaurant featuring authentic coastal Mediterranean cuisine, handcrafted cocktails, a hip and stylish décor and a youthful energetic vibe.

Zimzala restaurant is located on the second level of The Strand in downtown Huntington Beach, adjacent to the new Shorebreak Hotel.

Zimzala features a bar, "living room" lounge, semi-exhibition kitchen, dining room, private dining room and outdoor patio spaces. The cool and comfortable space was created by noted design firm De Lisle, Philpotts & Staub Interiors.

The lounge is the perfect place to relax with friends and enjoy handcrafted cocktails and lighter fare over tales of the day's beach and surfing adventures. The main dining room enjoys a glimpse of the semi-exhibition kitchen which produces healthful and exotic renditions of Mediterranean coastal cuisine. Communal sharing is strongly encouraged by our enthusiastic servers!

After dinner, enjoy our at-the-table "Mediterranean honor bar" with a selection of unique liqueurs and spirits. For perfect private events with style, enjoy Zimzala's private dining room complete with a stone fireplace and adjacent outdoor patio.

I went to Zimzala, and found it to be rather simple, uneducated, and unrehearsed. I don't have the highest of standards, and don't expect it-- especially with a new place, but they failed to impress me on my first visit. I don't mean to be harsh, but the juvenile treatment of the product, and the product itself, was rather disappointing. Our waitress tried to be a great assistant, but didn't measure up in the end. They have some work, and ironing out, to do. I'll try them one more time in about 6-mos. Please don't take my blog as a reason not to go try. I encourage you to try them out. I may have hit them at an inopportune moment. Seriously. The hotel is a nice addition to HB, and has a cool vibe to it. It's just working out it's wrinkles.
