About La Zeppa

One of the best inner city bars to indulge in great food & wine around the fireplace

La Zeppa is situated at 33 Drake St Freeman's Bay, directly behind Victoria park market. La Zeppa has the feel of a New York industrial warehouse which has been lovingly transformed into a spacious bar set with wrought iron candelabras, dim lighting on soft brick and a large open fireplace. The music is mastered by local DJs at the weekends; they ensure it is played for their customers each evening, not themselves.

La Zeppa focuses on the fact that people want to enjoy each others company with a great glass of wine and tasty plates, without the constraints of having to book or have a meal at a certain time - it is the ultimate meeting place - a catch up over a glass of wine, a sit down meal or a function for a large group of friends or colleagues.

When you are at La Zeppa anywhere you rest your elbow, your will receive great service, fantastic food, a great wine list and an atmosphere you won't forget.

Good place to go for drinks in a group setting. The food was good but there was nothing special about it. The service was okay. I had organised this and we have family come in first who didn't quite know what was going on. When they asked questions, staff were quite blunt and impatient with them- I booked in advance and had ordered in advance. The platters and "large" plates were not worth it to be honest.

Service was great, however our request to have one drink per person per card wasn't followed, perhaps a communications breakdown. The staff were also not checking for social club stickers which indicates whether the person is a member of the social club and entitled to the tab or not. Otherwise it was a great night enjoyed by all, thanks

Lovely restaurant with a romantic and inviting atmosphere. Thorough service and delicious food! The portions were smaller than expected but if you have the money or voucher to try a lot of their smaller plates, it’s worth every penny and you’ll leave feeling very satisfied:) Thanks for a lovely evening team!

We had an awesome experience, great venue. Service was friendly and relaxed, DJ created a great atmosphere and so did the vendors. The only thing that stopped the 5 stars for service was that there wasn't much in your face service which isn't really a bad thing - probably due to it being a lunchtime and just warming up for the evening.

Everything was fantastic except for the lamb tapa which was average. Service, value for money and atmosphere was great.

Amazing night loved the outdoor setting, beautiful at night. Food and drinks were amazing! Overall a really good night out. The outdoor cushions may just need a little clean though.

I loved the atmosphere. There was a private party being held and the barman gave me the impression general public were not allowed to share that space and dance while the function went on. Of this is the policy, it is a pity.

Unfortunately we smelt oil/fat on entry, restaurant dark and cold, food very average and oily. Did not taste fresh, (except the brocolli)...Service was extremely slow, even though restaurant was not busy.

Was a really cold evening and it was pretty bad the outdoor stand alone heaters didn’t work. Seems like no one could be bothered turning them on or filling the gas up

Great service and food. The atmosphere was excellent, we were sat next to the open fire on a cold rainy day. Can't wait to enjoy some food and drinks outside during summer.
