2 dinners 3 months apart, without a single miss among the 8-10 tapas ordered. Pleasant atmosphere, very good service. Our favorites: arugula salad, chargrilled octopus.

I would say probably not. It’s very European and I’ve never seen children there. Also has a busy bar scene.

Our dynamic menu is the passion of Executive Chef Adam. Adam has attained many influences through his training in Europe and New Orleans. Zambra is his modern vision of the tastes and flavors of the western Mediterranean: Spain, Portugal, Gypsy, and North Africa. As an appropriate accompaniment, we have assembled the region's finest selection of Spanish and New World wines. We have been awarded the Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence and our wine list has been voted the best in Asheville.
