Zest Bistro was established in May of 2010 and is part of Shannon Knights Bars which was established in 1972. Our idea behind Zest was to offer customers a relaxed casual dining experience in a visually rich environment with fantastic affordable food and excellent customer service. Head chef Clifford Ryan has but together a deliciously tempting menu to suit all tastes. Zest also offers an all-weather outdoor dining area. Zest is open daily from 10am-9pm.

Zest Bistro is set in the heart of the Shannon Town Centre shopping complex. The high standard of food cannot be faulted and when coupled with the service provided by the helpful friendly staff, this establishment is a must when visiting Shannon. Prices are surprisingly reasonable too. From a quick coffee to a 3 course meal, it's hard to find... More

In the heart of Ennis on Market Square, a fab place to eat loved the atmosphere, long sharing tables. Great for a quick bite to eat fresh food, the soup it was so nice. Deserts were to die for. You can eat in or take away.

Zest is a warm and friendly bistro. Although it is a part of a modern bar it maintains an intimate atmosphere. I have used it with my partner and business lunches and have no problem recommending it. The menu is varied and the food is tasty. The desserts are well thought out and tempting. The service is exceedingly professional, with... More

Having eaten here several times over the past year, the one thing that makes us come back are the excellent staff. We have a small baby and they always look after us immensely when we are there.
