We had a perfectly cooked steak here, although seafood features highly on the menu, and our vegetable side was fresh and tasty. The restaurant is right on the beach and has a relaxed and happy buzz. Although it was busy, the staff were calm, friendly and attentive to our needs. Byo is a plus. We will go back!

Was recommended to us but really was a disappointment. We ordered the midweek special and were told 2 courses for $40pp, sounds good we were also told we could share entre and sweets and have main course each. Entre great! Main course only one meal served, second main after waiting 15mins found out order not put through! Waited another 15mins... More

I went to Zimzala with a friend for lunch. The restaurant is right on the beach so the views are stunning! The wait staff were all friendly and helpful. I had the salt and pepper squid and my friend had the salmon. The food was delightful. Highly recommended.

Decided to take the Bride for a dinner to remember at Zimmies. We booked at the last minute and got a table, which was very much appreciated. A late doctors appointment that stretched out an hour held me up yet they didnt care when I phone dto advise out of courtesy. The Ocean was beautiful and so was the company.... More

We dined there during February 2017 with their 2 course special. The food was great and the price very reasonable. service was a little slow but acceptable with the number of patrons. Well worth going there.

Having become an iconic Cronulla eatery Zimzala doesnt sit back and allow itself to bathe in its own glow. Rather it works hard to create new ways to refresh itself. From music nights to degustations Zimzala tempts the locals to regularly partake of its offerings. Situated mere metres from the ocean with stunning northerly views along Cronulla beaches it corners... More

We dined on a Saturday night and booked 2 weeks ahead. To have table by the water we were told my a waitress they we should have booked 3 months ahead, she was not very friendly at all. Our waitress Tara for the night was fabulous and made up for the abrupt manner of the other waitress and the table.... More

At sea level and a great place to watch the passing/playing Cronulla beach crowd. The share plates are well presented as are individual dishes and everyone in our group enjoyed the experience. Attentive staff and open windows on good days allow for low noise and pleasant breezes. Smallish so booking advised.

My husband and I booked a Thursday evening dinner. Service and view was unbeatable. Unfortunately the food did no justice for the beautiful surroundings. The menu selection was wonderful however the main and desserts were not fresh and left us unwell. It seems the food quality is inconsistent.
