Description: 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.

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.

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.
