Cuisine offers interesting textures, flavours, layout and colors. Good quality coffee beans. Exceptional value for money. Do not skip the CHOCOLATE FONDANT

Staff were attentive to our needs. Meal was hearty but unfortunately over priced. Atmosphere lovely on the street side looking over the bay.

My wife and I have 3 small children so we don't get the luxury of dining out that often.....therefor, when we do get the chance, like with our anniversary yesterday, we have to make it count! When I was looking for a nice restaurant to take her, to my dismay, I found that many restaurants are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. I turned to Trip Advisor and found Zest.. What a wonderful evening we had with delicious, beautifully prepared food and wonderful service that made us evening very special. (The pork belly will be difficult to beat anywhere!) It was our first, but definitely not our last visit to Zest!

By far the best restaurant in Gordon's Bay.
The passion for the food and that little extra in the service is free of charge. A must go !

We visited Zest with our UK wedding party and i cant praise the restaurant enough.
What an experience, situated on the beach front with great views, the food was delicious and great value. All 23 people where served promptly and great choice of fresh seafood and meat. However what made the restaurant unique was the staff, i have never met such warm friendly people. I would highly recommend Zest and hope one day to be able to return.
