    review rating 5  I've eaten there on two previous occasions, and both times the food was excellent! The chicken ballantine we had yesterday, was really delicious. Friendly staff, and lovely view of the beach, helped make for a relaxing lunch..

  • 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.

    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 2  I usually dont ever write reviews but i felt that after my meal last night i just had to say something. i first dined at your restaurant in September 2016, where i enjoyed thee BEST chicken dish i had ever eaten at any place before. Last night i took my partner on a date night to your restaurant after raving about how wonderful your food is. The evening started off great and we shared your Lamb Cigars which was fantastic! My partner then ordered your Gourmet burger and myself... the only chicken dish on the menu with great excitement! Our food arrived and in all honesty was presented lovely! However to my complete shock, my chicken dish was a disaster! The chicken was over cooked, dry and stringy, only two tiny pieces of chicken breast enough to feed a child perhaps. My potatoes were not cooked properly and were still rock hard. And the one measly piece of Aubergine and Tomato i ended up taking off because it tasted so terrible. on top of that the dish was covered in sauce, which when cold was not very nice at all being a creamy sauce. Going from the best chicken meal ive had to having the worst chicken meal ever, and for R115??? i dont think it was worth the money at all. HUGELY disappointed and unfortunately will not be going back again. I am all about supporting local as i live in GB and we dont have many places to eat as it, but when pub food ends up better than a R115 meal, then i think twice! See more
