We go to zest on a regular basis with family and visiting friends. The staff are all extremely courteous and friendly always. The food is excellent. I love the Chowder. Fish n Chips steak dishes just to mention a few. This is well worth a visit. 👍👍👍

I don't know where to begin. The sandwich was overpriced & was made with regular sliced bread. The filling was dry & over salted. The pasta arrived cold with no flavour, chewy pasta & tasted like it was fresh outta the can. The fish & chips was just okay. Service was unprofessional & terrible. No one came by my table... More

I love the food and friendly service in ZEST- they offer a value led and practical menu, but the food is simply so tasty- it is a great place to go to meet friends and relax- after work or shopping, or before going tos ee a show- such as we did on the night.

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
