Zest is one of my favourite places. From the food to the drinks and the setting. Service is always great esp from the guy who works there always pleasant and has a crack.

Vinegar top loose. Went everywhere over me and my meal. After a half hearted attempt at clearing up the second attempt at the meal the fish was swimming in fat. Disgusted.

Me and my mum decided to have a meal at this establishment for my 27th Birthday. As we arrived the staff was very friendly and welcoming.

Dined last night for a special birthday. The staff were very attentive and friendly. The starter was lovely but the main course of duck was served with too much sauce and it was like soup. It was awful. Very disappointed and would not return.

Lovely as is the Harbour side. You always know you will get a great quality meal when visiting and the side options are great. Plenty of favourites too choose from. I love the sweet potato fries and the mash

Dropped in at the Zest, by opportune chance on Friday the 10th June, the place was busy, but the staff were most helpful and we got a table for 2. We had sharing pulled pork and although it was tasty, it was not really enough food for a main course to share. But the food was excellant tasting and desserts... More

Visited Zest a few times and i'm glad to say the food impresses every time! I also noticed the menu has got quite a few new additions since I was last here and I really struggled to decide! Can't wait to return and try the rest, really nice atmosphere and the service was excellent! 5 stars
