If I was given one word to describe my experience eating at the Zapata Tex-Mex Restaurant in Marbella (on the Golden Mile) and the only word that comes to mind is "FAULTLESS!". I have been in hundreds of fantastic restaurants all over the world and in and around marbella, however this Mexican restaurant really is a hidden gem that MUST be experienced. The service was exceptional, the waitress made a number of excellent worthwhile suggestions, and every mouthful was unbelievably delicious! This is certainly one very special restaurant that I will be visiting time and time again and strongly suggest that if you are in the area (or even if you are not), look them up and I promise you that you will not be disappointed!!

After driving past many times to and from Marbella, we finally stopped for lunch. What a pleasant surprise! The restaurant has a spacious dining room and terrace. The staff was friendly and very prompt with our drink order. My wife and I ordered from the menu del dia: nachos, quesadilla, burrito and fajitas. The food was very good, although it was definitely the chef's take on Tex-Mex. I wouldn't say it lacked authenticity, but barbecue sauce isn't exactly salsa. Serving size was adequate for a menu del dia lunch. Price included drink and dessert. We plan to return again.
