Zanzibar Merimbula

Renee & Huw (and team) provide fine cuisine & wines in a small but 'chicly' contemporary setting in the center of the township of Merimbula, almost at the Southern end of the South Coast of NSW.

The Zanzibar menu utilizes local, regional produce when in season expertly prepared by Huw & his 'back of house' team.

Huw's extensive experience gained during his time at some of the best restaurants in Australia including Tetsuya's 3 SMH chef's hat & Top 10 World Best Restaurant, Amberley Winery Restaurant in Western Australia and Bently Restaurant & Bar.

When we visited Zanzibar's, Renee and her crew allowed us to enjoy the perfect balance of attentive service and time to converse over our meal, that is the mark of the very best service standards.

The wine list is a well considered selection of varieties from throughout the local region, other wine regions throughout Australasia as well as Europe.

My main was the slow cooked duck breast, beetroot, spinach puree, pickled red cabbage, blackberry and pumpernickel.

Deservedly, Zanzibar was recently awarded 1 Chef's Hat in the 2013 Good Food Guide Awards.

Gluten free and dietary requirements are catered for by prior arrangement.

Facilities: Fully licensed with an excellent wine list plus eftpos & credit card facilities.

Reservations are essential.

Trading Hours

Thursday & Friday - Lunch 12-2pm

Tuesday to Saturday - Dinner from 6pm

Unfortunately for us, Zanzibar's is closed Sundays & Public Holidays (after all, we tree changers did come to the South Coast to 'get a life')
