Zest is a new Leura restaurant open for lunch and dinner. On-line the menus look very good. An experience with an evening meal recently was most lacking in lustre. The good things are the wine list of affordabley priced, Orange and Cowra wines of good quality, freshly cooked food and comfortable chairs. The negatives are 1] the portions that are inadequate. My chicken breast on quinoa with a fennel and radish salad was actually garnished with a few slices of radish and three slices of fennel. I expected a lemony sauce, but the dish was dry. My partner’s paella did not resemble a paella. There was not enough rice or saffron. For dessert we chose the panna cotta, subtly flavoured with ginger. Very nice. 2] The lights are too bright and, when asked to adjust them, the staff dither, parroting excuses about no dimmers, and that they must get low light light globes. One couple put on their hats to shield their eyes. All in all, a disappointing and expensive experience.
