    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 4  Very unassuming little restaurant - really!! Loved the glasses they served beer and cider in and again lovely glasses for soft drinks. The two starters we ordered were visually extremely appealing, taste and combination of flavors worked great. Main course being fried hake was fantastic, again much preparation had gone into the visual appearance and so I wanted to tuck in. Overall a great experience - I will definitely return and would recommend this restaurant.
