A group of 3, we were returning home after a great day out and decided to get some tasty grub. Unfortunately we decided to go to Zest. We were pretty famished and did some research on tripadvisor for decent eateries. Zest had pretty good ratings and a decent looking menu. On arrival we were greeted by a waiter and brought to what was an unappealing seat in a half full restaurant. The seats were plastic and tacky and would not look out of place in a school canteen. Overall, we spent close to 2 hours here, because the service was so slack. At one stage, we were sitting down with finished plates for nearing 15 minutes. Starters were a highlight, main course's were greasy but veg & mash were quite nice. Desserts were mainly sweet n stodgy and tiramisu was presented in a Smirnoff Mojito glass! Toilets were nice, and it appeared to be a kid & family friendly place.

Hi Sadbhy,

Thank you for your review of Zest bistro. Sorry to hear of your recent experience at Zest, this is not the norm here and we pride ourselves on excellent customer service and food.

I am not sure which seats you are referring too in your review. We have a outdoor furniture that we sometimes bring into the bistro.

I hope to see you again soon at Zest!

Regards

E Quish

This was a return visit as I had enjoyed a family dinner here last year and this time I was taking my husband but for lunch, he was very disappointed with portion size and thought it was more of a starter than a main. I had plenty but then again I'm half his size. Everything was fresh, the bistro was busy. We were checking it out for an upcoming family occasion and needless to say we decided against it. I have to say that I was sitting in a different location to the last time and found it very dark (barely able to read the menu and dingy.

Had the early bird menu with a friend recently. The garlic prawns were very good for starters and the seafood tagliatelle also satisfied, although the creamy sauce was a bit overpowering... Good value all in all, but this is again another restaurant that has "price supplements" depending on your choices within a set menu. It's not a very nice practice as it is highly misleading. A set menu should have a set price as far as I'm concerned.
