Description: Zest Bistro was established in May of 2010 and is part of Shannon Knights Bars which was established in 1972. Our idea behind Zest was to offer customers a relaxed casual dining experience in a visually rich environment with fantastic affordable food and excellent customer service. Head chef Clifford Ryan has but together a deliciously tempting menu to suit all tastes. Zest also offers an all-weather outdoor dining area. Zest is open daily from 10am-9pm.

We were wondering how the restaurant would fare after walking through their very busy bar in the front, but then we were seated in a nice quiet booth. We had excellent table service, the food was very tasty, and reasonably priced. Shannon does not offer a fine dining list of restaurants, but we were quite pleased with our dinner here.

Trendy and upbeat are the words that describe this bistro tucked into a shopping plaza. Service and price are excellent!

On a recent trip to Ireland we came across "Zest Bistro" in Shannon town. Myself, my wife & our 3 Teenagers ate there one evening. The food was excellent, the staff were very friendly, and the prices were very reasonable. Would definitely visit again, if back in Ireland.

€12 for a chicken caesar salad which consisted mainly of salad leaves & €7 for a starter chicken & mushroom vol au vent which was tiny. Ridiculous prices. And it was the day menu which didn't show prices.

At here with business colleagues on a Christmas get together. the food is good value and well presented, however there were many items on the menu that were just "off" on the night. There was no explanation beforehand that the menu choices were unavailable and our waiter just said "they are not available so pick something else"!!!
The restaurant opens up into a nightclub so best to eat a bit earlier than we did as we had hardly finished desserts before the crowds came pouring through.
