“SPI carry-out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

Zeste is open just Thursday-Sunday, so on Sunday evening they sell their leftovers at reduced prices. We bought a "Killer" cheeseball, an orzo and garbanzo bean salad, a turkey wrap, and a roast beef wrap, all at half-price, and also purchased a bag of good natural chips to go along with the cheeseball. That and the salad were deliciious, but the tortillas around the wraps were soggy. We would not pay full price for their food, as it was pretty expensive, but the Sunday evening sale was a good way to sample their items.

“Fresh food with amazing flavor combinations.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

If you are in the area, you must try this place. The food is fresh and unique. The market offers picnic type food and everything we tried, from the hummus to the salmon dip, was exceptional. We actually went back and bought just dips and crackers since they were so great. We stopped in for lunch and a few bottles of wine and all I can say is try as much as you can since it is all amazingly good. The shrimp was fresh, wraps delectable and side dishes awesome. The carrot cake was ok but I have had better and don't bother with the bread pudding.

“Good food small portion”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

I ate tuna with wasabi. The food was excellent. Portions were small though. My kids did not like the food as it was cold. It seems they microwaved the food. Ambiance was nice, waitress was very good. Things are not very expensive but portions are kind of small. A the result, there was a big check.
I may not visit again.

“Wonderful place in South Padre.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

I came across this place recently and have to say I was quite pleased. They specialize in tapas, wines, etc. and sell all sorts of homemade dips and sauces. They make just about everything from scratch. The coffee there is wonderful and full flavored. Their roasted veggie sandwich was great. The staff were extremely nice and courteous people. Alittle on the pricey side, but definitely worth it. They also sell some shelved foods (Maine brand sodas, spanish olives, olive oil, etc.).

Would definitely recommend to anybody staying on the island.
