Four of us visited this nice little neighbourhood restaurant, tucked up a side street. It has great decor and is extremely clean.

We shared a selection of starters, which worked well. The staff were really helpful and the food was excellent value.

Pleasant ambience. Charming, helpful waitress. However, some of the food, having been pre-prepared was not heated through thoroughly. Dishes also arrived really haphazardly, leaving some of us with food while others waited another 5 minutes or more. The worst aspect of the meal was when a vegetarian member of the group, despite a prior conversation about the contents of a paricular dish, found meat in his food. It was also disappointing that the manager, who clearly knew what was happening, slipped away without an apology or even an acknowledgement. Very disappointing.

We booked a table for my birthday meal, the food was delicious, service was attentive without being overbearing and the drinks were great. The Mexican food was all prepared well by someone who has a keen eye for flavour combinations, the menu isn't huge but everything on offer was done very well. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys Mexican food or tapas style dishes.

Nice food - restaurant was very quiet for 7.30pm on a Friday. Staff were friendly and attentive. Prices were reasonable.

As a group of friends from London we needed somewhere to eat that was local, delicious, vegetarian friendly and not too pricey!

Wow this place was excellent, portion sizes were bigger than you think so don’t over order.

I had the locally caught fish battered in a burrito 👌.

There were 7 of us and they couldn’t have been more helpful.

Definitely recommend this venue! 🔝

Delicious Mexican food with a Californian twist. The owner was extremely helpful in offering vegan options to my husband and I. The food was so fresh and not at all heavy or greasy. The lighting and music were just right too - so many places don't get this right! Very good value for money too.

Zona Rosa is a lovely, intimate restaurant. The food was lovingly crafted and even the tortilla chips were beautifully made. I found the prices very reasonable and the food was very filling.

Lovely birthday celebration with warm service, great food and wine and excellent value due to our NHS discount. Will be going back again.

The vibe, food and the very friendly/attentive staff won me over at Zona Rosa.

My only slight negative was the slightly 'more than usual' price for the burritos.

Don't get me wrong, the taste was good and they were filling. I just felt that £12.50 was perhaps a little too much, but hey...I spent it and ate the food, so I have to recourse really!

It's a lovely little restaurant and I hope they continue to do well.
I will endeavor to go back again for another try!

Great food with excellent friendly service. Not your typical Mexican food, this was an unusual menu and was really delicious!

The food was nice but as it was mothers day it did advertise all mothers a complimentary glass of prosecco although this was not offered. I will however be going here again.

Great food and amazing service in this local Kemptown restaurant. Well worth a visit with some more unusual Mexican dishes.

enjoyed our evening, food was great, wine and service was excellent.
Lacked a bit of atmosphere due to not many people in the restaurant, and
could have done with being a little warmer.
