Zahra's remains one of my favourite places to eat. The sea food is exquisite and the steak cooked to perfection. The atmosphere is lovely and the service is also excellent. I cannot recommend this enough.

This is hands down the tastiest seafood around. Only problem was we both ordered starters and mains, and we were too full! Portions were big and delicious. Make a reservation!

Description
Grilling dishes on glowing embers was at the base of all cookery, and is an art our Chef Mohammed has mastered perfectly. Here on the second floor of the Riad Zahra with an ocean view Mediterranean cuisine is to the fore. Paëllas, lobster or prawns, sea fish, shellfish, meat ... At the heart of our cuisine are the superb natural products, which give out all their savours under the embers' influence, sharing their aromas with the grills and the products cooked on them. Jofre will help you choose dishes that are just right for you and will help you choose wines to match them. There's also a wide range of wines for you to enjoy.
