Zuzuroh Italian-Greek Taverna
There is no secret, really - only the dynamic team of Evert and his wife Margarita, who want to share their favorite Mediterranean recipes; introduce the freshest homegrown and homemade ingredients and present their dedicated staff members to the growing group of first-time and repeat customers. Reservations are highly recommended because the taverna is not getting any bigger. No rush is required at Zuzuroh. It's all about enjoying good company and great food here, try our Corvo Rosso from Sicily to merge Italian and Greek traditions, and top it all off with sweet bites of baklava or tiramisu. It's all smashingly good.

Just okay :(

Margarita was ver nice as a hostess. We knew there were not too many tables so we made early reservations and did get seated right away. There was a party of 12 in there, they were Greek, as am I. They had 4 small children with them and the acoustics in there were horrible. Their conversation was heard by everyone. Of course I was probably the only person there that understood as they spoke Greek most of the time. There is NOTHING GREEK about this restaurant. Who ever heard of stuffed grapeleaves with "Marinara Sauce" ? YUCK ! I had the veal which was good but super thin, not worth the price. My husband had a fish dish which again was okay but not worth the money. There are finer restaurants on the islend for less and the food is better. So, the Greek offerings which are few, were not good and the Italian was just so so. Neither the chef nor his wife are Greek by the way. I think she said she was from Costa Rica and he was Dutch. I don't think this place will last much longer. Sorry

Not to miss

Yes, they do have GREEK food! And yes, most items are imported, but what isn't on the island. We were all wildly surprised. Don't get me wrong, this is not a top notch gourmet restaurant. But, it is very enjoyable with very good food and relaxing atmosphere. Yes there is a Greek salad. We have been to three restaurants on the island (including one a highly touted gourmet) and we believe that this is the best of the three. We will be back.

Mediocre

The greatest thing about this restaurant is the pleasantness shown to each customer by the owners, Evert and Margarita.
But the food was just ok - my wife's lobster bisque was delicious, as was our friend's spicy meatballs. But that's the extent of the positives.
My Greek salad was anything but - yes, it had 2 calamati olvies and two thin slices of feta cheese, but that's as close as it got to Greece! The cheese was imported, probably from the USA, and the olives? Well, they didn't come from Greece!
My wife had spaghetti and meatballs, but the sauce tasted like it came right out of the can. My veal parmesan had the same sauce, and the veal was about 1/8" thin.
Nope, not a place to return to......

Best italian food on the island

This restaurant was recommended to us by people at our timeshare. They serve the best italian food on the island. Service was excellent and repeat customers are treated as returning family. Prices are reasonable. Will definitely visit next year.

Nothing Greek Here

Mar 17, 2015 - posted by
The hostess/owner was very nice, friendly and kept checking on us.
I had the veal marsala and it was very good. I didn't even need a knife to cut the veal. It was just enough food as I had a salad before my entree. My husband had the grouper. It was just ok.
I have to say there is NOTHING Greek about this restaurant. I'm Greek and I know my food. Who ever heard of GreeK stuffed grape leaves with marinara sauce. NEVER. Always egg lemon sauce goes on grape leaves. The cheese and olives are not imported, they are U.S. Domestic. The baklava is commercially made. This restaurant should stick to Italian food! Definitely make a reservation if you want to eat here but don't order anything Greek.

Abert, Margarite, and Lizzy Rock

We spent a week at LaQuinta and the restaurant Zuzuroh was close by so we tried it. We loved it. The food was outstanding. Especially the Spaghetti Frommage.
We ate there 3 times and loved every minute of it. Lizzy was our waitress and was very helpful in picking out wine to go with dinner. It is a team of Abert, Margarite and Lizzy that make the dining experience so wonderful. It is a small restaurant so I would recommend reservations for sure. We enjoyed a drink at the bar before our table was ready. When we return to Aruba we will make this our first stop to see our friends and enjoy good food and drinks.

Great Service and Great Food

We just ate at Zuzuroh's last week and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We had gone there numerous times last year on our holiday and it was excellent each time and this year it was great as well. The food was terrific, fresh and wonderfully presented. The servers were friendly and the restaurant has a cozy atmosphere. We'll be going back again before we go home!

Would Not Go Back

Feb 9, 2014 - posted by
I was excited to try Zuzuroh as the island is lacking good Italian restaurants. We had an 8:30 reservation and there were no tables available. We were not told how long we would have to wait so we took a seat by the bar. Well, we did not get seated until 10:00 and not one time during the entire wait did someone apologize to us or offer us a free drink or appetizer while we waited. The restaurant is only a year old and the husband and wife owner, while very nice people, do not seem to understand the nuances of how to run a successful restaurant.

As far as the food is concerned, it was ok. It was not outstanding nor was it bad. Needless to say, I will not be returning to give them a second chance as the food was not good enough to warrant me a return trip.
