                                          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.

                                          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.

                                          The lamb and the chicken were both outstanding. The drink my fiancée got was recommended by the manager, and she said it’s the best cocktail she’s had this year. Everything we had was awesome.

                                          When we got to the restaurant, the temperature was very high, I asked several times if they could regulate the temperature since the place was very hot and after 20-30 minutes they did it. We ordered Starters, main course, dessert, and a bottle of wine. The waiter took too long to serve the wine, I needed to ask for the bottle of wine 3 times. We ordered food and the waiter asked me how would I like my meat, I said medium well, but he never asked my wife. When the dishes arrived, my meat was red and my wife's was the same, we asked to cook more it and we could see the annoyance of the waiter and him cook at our request. The desserts left much to be desired, the pastes 3 leches were not milked at all, it was a tiny piece of cake with ice cream and a little caramel. We still hadn't finished eating when the bill came, I think it is very rude to do that and it speaks of a service that leaves much to be desired.

                                          Great service and brilliant food. We went for a three course set menu and every dish that came our way was excellent. The chefs really, really know what they're doing.

                                          The whole experience at Zampas was fantastic. Beautifully decorated restaurant with comfortable seating and a lovely atmosphere. The food was interesting and delicious, very well thought out. All three courses were lovely. The cocktails were yummy even the alcohol free ones my daughter ordered. Most importantly the staff were absolutely brilliant, such genuinely nice people this really added to our experience and all in all my daughter had a really memorable birthday dinner.

                                          Zampas has a cool and bright environment. The drinks were delicious and the food was as well. My steak with chimichurri was a bit too salty, but other than that, we enjoyed our food. The staff was very friendly as well.

                                          Enjoyed a great breakfast here and will definitely return. It dropped the star just because it took a little longer than expected between ordering and receiving our food. The food, service and staff were excellent. Looking forward to going there again post Covid restrictions.
