  • 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 5  Some of the best food I had in ages. Salmon mouse starter was out of this world. Best potato fondant I ever tasted, and cudo’s to the chef that actually came out and took the time to explain to me how he made it. Will definitely go back again and again and again.

    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?
