Our reviews are based on an annual survey of ordinary diners which runs in Spring each year. But this establishment has not yet gathered enough feedback for our editors to write it up.

For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

Zapote Restaurant Diner Reviews
"The food was really good here. Especially liked the tongue tacos. My one complaint was that if you had a meal like this in Mexico, there would be mounds of tortillas and more on demand. Here even those tongue tacos were served with too few to handle all of the dish. Cocktails were really good and seemed very reasonably priced. "
"Knockout Mexican food, imaginative and perfectly judged sharing plates. A brilliant addition to the London dining scene. Warm and attentive service. Interesting cocktails and wine list."
