We love the pizza at Zest! Always so fresh and perfectly cooked. Their berry smoothie was super yummy as was the mud pie. Great atmosphere and friendly service. You won't be disappointed.

We had no reservation & it was extremely busy. We were welcomed & told there would be a wait before our orders were taken. We were however offered breads prior. Staff worked extremely efficiently. All meals were lovely. We will return.

As part of a large group I attended a function in early May 2018. The service was excellent and the quality of food was very good. I had a main course of steak that was cooked as I like it followed by desert.
