    review rating 0  Compliments to the Chef and the Menu for 'Mother's Day' - still love the 'French' influence ... a warming soup of the day (beef and lentils), Moules mariniere, Arancini, Ribeye with 'Pommes Pont Neuf' , Ballotine of chicken, White Wine Pear with chantilly cream, dark chocolate and almonds... and good wines... Tres bien! Excellent place for gourmets in Gordon's Bay! (also appreciate the correct wording of your menu!)

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 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
