We founded Zapata Mexican Restaurant in St. Catharines, ON after falling in love at first sight with our historic 1800’s location. The breathtaking, traditional Canadian architecture inspired us to think big, and we knew we had to create a dining destination worthy of our one-of-a-kind building.
Our project soon became more than we ever imagined, growing into a beautiful fusion of the old and the new. Our bright interior, classic Mexican dishes, and upbeat vibe have rapidly made us a favorite with the old and the young alike, bringing something unique to every dining experience. Whether you choose to visit us for lunch, dinner, or a quick drink, we guarantee you won’t be disappointed! Check out some of our dishes.
Our Head Chef
Our head chef was born and raised in Mexico, and uses her extensive culinary experience to craft authentic recipes that must be tasted to be believed. Working exclusively with fresh, traditional ingredients, we are committed to making your Mexican dining experience a true cultural immersion from beginning to end.
We are happy to take lunch and dinner reservations anytime for groups of up to 15. If you are dining with a group of more than 15, we ask that you put down a small deposit to secure your reservation. For more information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
