Beautiful food and a great atmosphere, this is a lovely little restaurant for the exploring foodie. Everything was delicious but the prawn entree and butterscotch panna cotta dessert were the standout!

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

Just simply great food and excellent service, located perfectly at the bottom of the mall. Recommend the salads and a seat by the window, watching the world go by.

We stopped in for lunch with friends. The restaurant was crowded but we had prompt service and the food was delicious. Great fresh healthy options. I would definitely go back.

“Great Food, Great Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

We turned up for lunch, party of 6, without a booking on a Saturday mid July, peak season. Understandably they were full, but the pleasant staff took our name and within 15 minutes we were seated in the nice warm back room.
The staff were great. Friendly & welcoming in spite of being run off their feet.
Ordering was quick & easy and there was a good selection.
We ordered a range of meals from chicken with harrisa to portugese sandwich to BLT.
All were very tasty and arrived promptly.
The only comment I would make is that they were a bit heavy handed with the butter & mayo, but this may say more about the group of middle age women watching their waistlines!!
Coffee was smooth and herbal teas a great hit.
Well worth a visit.!!

“Zest for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Very popular little place tucked around the corner at the end of the street. We visited for lunch on a busy Saturday. Very friendly staff. Great food at reasonable prices. Highly recommend Zest for a meal.
