While we have now 'lost' Victor as a waiter [he was definitely one of a kind] this restaurant still has all the feel of a very upmarket dining experience without the exorbitant prices. The decor and seating arrangements suit so many levels, and the pianist is there but not overbearing seems to sum up this place. You can go for... More

We visited this restaurant on 16th July and frankly was embarrassed by the choices offered. The food may have been prepared well but the presentation was below standard for a restaurant of this quality and the prices charged. None of our party enjoyed our main dish. I feel the diversity of dishes is important and this was the main reason... More

If you wantt generous, comfortable seating at linen dressed tables where conversation can be private, this is a good choice. High ceilings, heavy drapes on windows and background music from a grand piano complete the experience. Waiters are friendly, eager to please. Food was a mix of good to ok with cured ocean trout / pickled vegetables a standout for... More

for a first clas meal you can not go pass it. I also go to the zest for breakfast when in town and for lunch on a Sunday but make a booking. The club is just across the road from the Hilton, and the service is far Superior..

What a beautiful restaurant and not just for the lovely atmosphere but also for the fabulous wait staff. You would never believe that you were dining in a club.The food was fanastic and so reasonably priced and the meals were very generous. I particularly enjoyed the decor so old world and the pianist - that was just perfect background music.... More
