“Superb pre-show dinner”
Reviewed 28 October 2013 via mobile

We were going to a show at 7:30pm so decided to try the early bird menu at Zest. $28 or $38 with a dessert. Very reasonable for Auckland CBD.

The menu is quite small but perfect for a pre-show dinner. We had the beef & the salmon and both meals were superb. We also went for a dessert each and had the Sticky Date pudding and the Creme Brûlée. Both were delicious.

The service was very good - attentive without being overbearing.

Overall a very enjoyable dinner.

“Fantastic dinner - expensive average breakfast”
Reviewed 10 February 2013

Stayed at CityLife hotel. Had a fantastic dinner including appetizer - and good service. Breakfast, however, was way too expensive (NZ$ 35) and the quality was not that impressive.
