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.
Delicious food, great service, great location 👍
Hi had a booking on the 18th of April 7:30 pm for a date. FOOD WAS AMAZING BUT I have a few bad experience in the venue. So I did not get any confirmation letter after my booked a seat for 2, I was waiting for it the whole day. And when I got there I said I had a booking at 7:30. The FoH staff didn't check the tablet or wherever you guys check your bookings. In my additional request I added if we can get a seat with the heaters on (Outside). So when the seat was given the heaters weren't on so me and my partner had to go inside and look for a table ourselves. We waited for exactly 42 minutes for 2 main plates. We were given free drinks but the lady said we ordered a "big main plates" so it will really take a while. I would understand if it was busy that night but there's like 6-7 tables only that was occupied. But I ignored them and tried to enjoy my date. Please let your chefs know the food doesn't have to take that long. We were informed that we had to wait longer after waiting for 25 minutes already. I loved the food and the ambience is amazing, some front of house were friendly. but the service time is just not that great.
We were there on a rather quiet evening. Food was delicious. Helpful, friendly service. Definitely recommend to others
Lovely staff and delicious food. Really enjoyed the evening.
Great food and atmosphere. Quick service.
Great friendly atmosphere and wonderful tapas.
Our server Carly (if i remember her name correctly) was incredibly pleasant and made our experience at La Zeppa that much more enjoyable! Her friendly service, together with the good food - definitely a place i'd recommend!
Great atmosphere and service
The food was amazing. The beef koftas are to die for!
Lovely food and service
I thought the food was lovely .. that I ate before the koftas. Nowhere on the menus did it state they had any kind of chili spice or heat. I can eat a medium Indian curry fine but these were so hot it ruined the taste of the other food I had after eating one. Was a bit annoyed that I had to pay for food I didn’t eat and wouldn’t have ordered if I had known it was spicy/chilli hot.
Great food and great service from Abigail. Will be back for sure!
no service, had to get everything ourselves. Not what I would have expected. And not cheap..
The area that was reserved for us was great and the DJ, well she was phenomenal - amazing tunes!! But the service was so slow. Food, which was a couple of platters and cocktails took ages to come out, which meant most of us sat a long time without a drink, between drinks. I do love it here, but something needs to be done about the service. It might help with the slow service if the staff smiled every now and then!!
All the staff were so friendly and attentive. Food was incredible. Everything was very reasonably priced and we will definitely be back!! 10/10
Thank you for amazing night!
If you want to have a brilliant birthday party where the staff are helpful, kind and the drinks are generous then go to La Zeppa. Also beautiful photo opportunities. Thank you everyone at La Zeppa especially Jaycinta!
The Pink Gin pop up was amazing. Highly recommend.
FELT SO WELCOMED WALKING IN! TEAM AND FOOD WERE AMAZING!!!
Right upon entering the staff really took care of us and provided impressive service, very much appreciated. The food and drinks were lovely and we left feeling really great. Thank you all and look forward to coming back.
Arrived about 40mins early to our booking and our table was waiting for us. We were attended to straight away and our orders were taken promptly. We ordered 4 tapas dishes which were so delicious apart from the lamb skewers which were a bit fatty therefore chewy. They still had good flavours though. Dessert was yummy and the drinks were good. Sure to come back but will book an outside table in summer as it was a bit stuffy inside.
Great staff and lovely food
Great outdoor area.
Great place to have a good time with friends. The food was delicious and service was excellent.
