The food is fantastic and I love that he varies his menu according to seasonal options. You won't be disappointed.

  • review rating 5  Zest - the Restaurant to relive your passion for Good Food!! Compliments to the Chef, Managing Staff & waiters for making you feel absolutely 'at Home' from the moment one enters the restaurant!! A mouth watering Mediterranean 'a la Carte' menu satisfies your appetite & brings your taste buds to life . A tranquil ocean view engulfs your state of mind & accentuates the art of preparing good food!! Thank you for my Zest experience.

    review rating 5  Another amazing lunch at Zest today. Everything was perfect and the chilli and coriander fish cakes are a new favorite. Chef Ruben pays such attention to detail, the accompanying beetroot and celery salad was as yummy as the fish cakes!

    review rating 3  First visit after discovering Zest on FB. Overall: pleasant surprise! Party of four which included a couple who live in the USA and are well-travelled foodies. Menu limited but enjoyed roasted cauli soup + chicken dish Dessert menu only 3 options?? Service good Lighting too dark for oldies Worth a return visit, hope menu changes with seasons?
