Living local so easy to walk home. Zavito is a regular Friday night tapas or wood fire pizza. Tonight dined in the restaurant. Perfect! Meals service standards Perfect!

Went there on a works night out and not been there for over a year. its obviously changed owners and not for the better either. Opted for the classic steak and chips. Steak was not quite a good cut but was unevenly cooked even though I like medium rare. Chips always used to be those chunky gourmet style but now its the thin anaemic style found in fast food places. Salad to garnish...that would have been nice....only a few leaves that were more for decoration.
Service was good from the waitresses, but the owner/manager was very pushy with drinks. Sorry Zavitos but the reason your tables are empty compared to other places in Mairangi bay is very simple....you seriously need to improve the quality of your food.

Went for a simple meal out. Steak was poorly done and undercooked for a medium rare. salad was sparse and very low quality. Chips were more 'drive through' than gourmet. Apple crumble desert was cheap...very disappointing. Other meals were late arriving and also poor quality. Not been here for about a year and it used to be awesome under local owner. Appears to have new owners now and it's quality has completely gone.

Been to Zavito's several times for lunch and I have to say their roasted veg and feta salad is wonderful. Service is always friendly and helpful. Very relaxed place to eat.

I often sit across the road at paper moon looking over at zavitos thinking why is it that you can't get a table I here but across the road it is completely dead, well I went across the road to zavitos where all my expectations were meet. Staff would rather be checking their tinder app instead of serving us, food was all good Atmosphere was dead. To the owners you need to get this place pumping and get some decent waitress sure they looked alright but have no care in what they are doing and it's affecting you not them.
