                      Very disappointing meal. Chicken was recommended as their best dish and was only lukewarm. Burger bun was stone cold. Didn't bother with dessert as main course was so poor. Visited the restaurant based on reviews here, however can't now agree with those reviews.

                      An unique cuisine, Peruvian food in a cosy setting served by fantastic staffs. A very spacious restaurant with a relaxing ambience and comfortable seating for single, couple or groups. Stephano and the other staff (missed his name) were extremely courteous, friendly and attended to all our needs, including our request to customise food. They were genuinely interested on elevating our overall experience. Chimichurri Chicken Wings is something that one should never miss trying here. Chifa was very good too. The bar is right beside the restaurant. The restaurant is definitely worth a visit and revisit.

                      Food was nice. I had the chicken wings which were basically all bone and very little meat. Staff were lovely but a little too eager around the table and sometimes cleared off before everyone was finished which made you feel slightly rushed. Would have preferred a more relaxed atmosphere. In saying that staff were very friendly and helpful. I think maybe just some tweaks needed.

                      Waiters couldn’t do enough for us. They were so friendly and the lovely interaction with them was a real treat in these times. We had such a pleasant experience - the waiter actually invited us to make substitutes if we wished (I’m always doing that and getting frowned at so it was lovely to feel welcome to do so). The food was excellent - South American fair incorporating local Irish sources. The food was presented artistically and beautifully. Mostly, we just felt so welcomed by the staff - this was the highlight for us. We got a great deal 3-4-2 at the hard rock hotel which included a 3 course meal in Zampas and a welcome cocktail, as well as breakfast and other perks…absolutely outstanding value for money. Would highly recommend a visit.

                      A really enjoyable meal, the atmosphere was great, nice and buzzy. The staff are very attentive and pleasing. The food is absolutely delicious, we had beef cheeks and pork belly to start. Very well presented and tasted fab. The duck and steak for mains were also brilliant. No complaints whatsoever. I’d definitely recommend this place to friends.

                      Food and ambience very good. Staff excellent. We had never dined there before as we were travelling from Cork for the Irish/All Blacks rugby match. This restaurant was a lucky find. Before Covid hit it had been a music venue. Once the music returns we will pay a return visit. 😃.

                      Zampas has the tastiest wings in Dublin both pisco and chimmichuri. And the pulled pork tacos are delicious.

                      Fantastic service and excellent food. We really enjoyed our evening and would highly recommend Zampas for something a little bit different from the normal fare.

                      Great experience at Zampas on a Friday night! The food was fantastic! The half chicken was the winner and all the sides were unreal. Nicest chips EVER!!! The servers were so friendly and absolutely loved the atmosphere! Can’t wait to come back:)

                      Very attentive staff if a little slow to get drinks to us. Quite expensive for what it was. Toilets almost impossible to find. Very badly posted.

                      Cool space but ambiance a little lacking - could have just been early mid week dinner time. Staff very friendly. Presentation of food was beautiful. Starters were particularly good. A bit expensive for standard of food.
