    review rating 5  Absolutely my all time favourite. My husband arranged to take over the restaurant for my 50th Birthday. What a night! Reuben & Hermien are always so attentive and friendly. 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.
