Excellent service and delicious food, only ordered mains but we're given complimentary bread and soup. Portions were small so be aware, a sweet would be needed to make your meal complete.

We enjoyed a special evening here with superb cuisine. We chose the Asian menu and although it's fairly expensive at 38 euro a head it does reach all expectations and was one of the most flavoursome meals I have ever had. Book a seat on the balcony overlooking the bay for an extra special touch. Staff were also brilliant.

Zest was a recommendation from a friend and local, whom did not steer us wrong. Usually I don't get too excited about hotel restaurants, but Zest was a pleasant surprise. The ambience is a modern Asian flair with contemporary touches. The staff were very welcoming and polite, without a doubt the best service we received since we arrived. The menu... More

My wife and I ate at Zest and had an excellent meal - definitely the best food and wine of the week. We both had the cheapest suggested menu which included Lamb cutlets as the main course. Service was excellent and all the staff really cared about their product. We would definitely eat here again.

We had a meal as part of our package. The service was good, great selection of food and the wine was reasonable. Drinks can be expensive here and I recommend you eat inside.

My husband who is a pretty picky eater had the Sea-bass and said it was the most fabulous meal he ever had, also I had the rice with the prawns and lobster in it - amazing. It is a beautiful modern restaurant, in a great location and is very good value for the food and... More

Beautiful location and got seated on the balcony, great for watching life at Spinola Bay. Superb service from young waitress, very helpful with sushi selection. Wine very reasonably priced, pad Thai noodles very tasty and huge, had to leave most of it but found all the prawns, perhaps add a couple more? Maze sushi selection gave great variety and more...

Following many recommendations, we came for dinner with high expectations. We had an asian banquet menu with a large variety of different dishes and starters, and we were not too impressed by any of them. Way too expensive for average food.
