For a big, fat Greek feast in Bournemouth, head on over to Zorbas, a charming taverna located on Old Christchurch Road. With airy, Mediterranean decor, home-style Greek cuisine, and live parea music nights, take a trip to Zorbas and you’ll feel like you’ve been whisked away on holiday. Begin your meal with some meze like the chargrilled halloumi, fresh mussels in a white wine sauce, or tzatziki, before moving on to your main. From mouthwatering charcoal-grilled meats and market-fresh seafood, to hearty Greek dishes cooked up just how mamma would make, like the homemade moussaka and the soutzoukakia (meatballs in a mixture of minced beef, cumin, garlic and olive oil with Mavrodafni wine). To guarantee a table at Zorbas, making a reservation in advance is advised!
We enjoyed the choice of authentic Greek food and we were given very generous portions and excellent service. The restaurant had a pleasant decor. We had a lovely evening
The sharing mezzi is really great value for money and delicious. Service is attentive without being over eager and the food was varied and nicely presented. I've eaten here previously and will eat here again, in future.
The restaurant is really wonderful. We have been served with friendly, smiley people. We will come back soon. Good luck and enjoy what you are doing!
Wonderful food, lovely authentic setting, lovely staff, live music, just perfect 👌. The atmosphere was excellent! Very busy Friday evening, however the service and food was faultless 😊
I really enjoyed my evening at Zorbas - i'd never been and took my boyfriend for a nice meal out. The food was great, service was fab. There was also live music which provided a great ambience and atmosphere. I also received 30% off as i booked online which i didn't expect to receive but was extremely happy with. Would definitely go again and recommend.
Last visited 12 years ago and the decor remains the same. The service was, although slow compared to modern chains, was actually perfect. No person asking if everything is okay every 5 minutes, excellent timing between courses and no feeling of having to rush, instead a lovely relaxed evening. There was live performance which encourages the audience to participate if they so wish, plus they still encourage the smashing of plates after the meal. An amazing evening and we will definitely return
What a marvellous evening.excellent food and great atmosphere. The staff as always were attentive and there on hand to look after us.The entertainment was fab.Great singer and we danced in the aisle of the restaurant. Will return very soon.Thankyou Zorbas
The food was lovely but the service was poor even though the restaurant was quiet. The waiter was quite pushy trying to get us to order alcohol but one is was driving and one doesn't drink so it felt uncomfortable. The waiter took the order incorrectly and didn’t bring the hummus for the starter. He brought chips instead of rice for one of our party who decided to just go with it rather than making him go and change it. When we asked for more water we had to spend time trying to catch his eye when he didn’t bring it for ages. Then after the main course he just didn’t come near us at all. We were going to have dessert and one of us was having the dinner deal of 2 courses but we all just decided to have coffee instead. By this time the place was almost empty but we still had to wave our arms to try and get his attention after wAiting at least half an hour after finishing the main. Then they brought the ouzo and another older man asked us if we wanted more alcohol. It was a shame as the food was ok and the place is lovely but service makes a good restaurant experience I think
Great night out, had a brilliant evening. Food was good and staff were friendly and you could have good banter with them. Been to Zorbas 6 times and would definitely go their again.
Always a great evening at Zorbas, food is always excellent and delicious, great service from the friendly staff and entertainment is always great, always fun for a sing along!
