Zabrano, restaurant review,Leigh on Sea, Essex

main meal and the restaurant zabranos leigh on sea essex

We went to Zabrano about three times, but the food and service got worse.The first meal was great – chicken Coq au vin I remember to be extremely good and their Sunday lunch was nice.Thereafter we tried two more times. The second meal we shared the 7 hours slow roasted shoulder of lamb. It was rich and tasty at the time, but for some reason we both got stomach upsets afterwards – although we did have prawns too. Undeterred, we went back again, as the dining area is actually very nice and the atmosphere is good.The falafel starter was inedible as it was so salty.The scallops were nice.The bouillabaisse had just too much cream in it and was very sickly, and my main and wine was spoilt due to the lingering salt in my mouth from the starter. We were polite about it but had a particularly rude waiter. It is first time I have been unable to leave a tip, due to the undeserving service.However, I would not put anyone off going to Zabrano, as the two meals we had previous were very nice, including the Sunday Lunch, and chefs/staff change a lot in restaurants sometimes.
