We were wondering how the restaurant would fare after walking through their very busy bar in the front, but then we were seated in a nice quiet booth. We had excellent table service, the food was very tasty, and reasonably priced. Shannon does not offer a fine dining list of restaurants, but we were quite pleased with our dinner here.

Trendy and upbeat are the words that describe this bistro tucked into a shopping plaza. Service and price are excellent!

On a recent trip to Ireland we came across "Zest Bistro" in Shannon town. Myself, my wife & our 3 Teenagers ate there one evening. The food was excellent, the staff were very friendly, and the prices were very reasonable. Would definitely visit again, if back in Ireland.

€12 for a chicken caesar salad which consisted mainly of salad leaves & €7 for a starter chicken & mushroom vol au vent which was tiny. Ridiculous prices. And it was the day menu which didn't show prices.

At here with business colleagues on a Christmas get together. the food is good value and well presented, however there were many items on the menu that were just "off" on the night. There was no explanation beforehand that the menu choices were unavailable and our waiter just said "they are not available so pick something else"!!! The restaurant opens... More

A group of 3, we were returning home after a great day out and decided to get some tasty grub. Unfortunately we decided to go to Zest. We were pretty famished and did some research on tripadvisor for decent eateries. Zest had pretty good ratings and a decent looking menu. On arrival we were greeted by a waiter and brought... More

This was a return visit as I had enjoyed a family dinner here last year and this time I was taking my husband but for lunch, he was very disappointed with portion size and thought it was more of a starter than a main. I had plenty but then again I'm half his size. Everything was fresh, the bistro was... More

Had the early bird menu with a friend recently. The garlic prawns were very good for starters and the seafood tagliatelle also satisfied, although the creamy sauce was a bit overpowering... Good value all in all, but this is again another restaurant that has "price supplements" depending on your choices within a set menu. It's not a very nice practice... More
