Had the Shakashuka (poached eggs in a tomato - like "stew" with awesome chilli flavours, haloumi and chorizo). Wife had chicken tajine which she said wasn't as nice as she hoped. My meal was what tipped me toward four stars, otherwise it would have rated a 3.

We had breakfast on the 18/2. Partner had the bacon,chorizo,egg burger and he loved the meal. I had the Avocado toast with fetta bean sprouts and this was average. Service was good, This place needs a clean, toilets were dirty - cobwebs around the restaurant - hate to see what the kitchen looked like.

Nice, familiar cafe fare with an interesting array of middle eastern influence. Toast with avocado, Persian feta and macadamia dukkah. Fresh juice served tall. Was served promptly, comfortable space, good staff. Win!

I love Zest! Always have a great meal here and I LOVE the homemade lemonade. Zest has a mediteranean feel to it and also has Veggie options as well as yummy other food as well! Great sweets as well!

The reviews I read were varied, so my wife and I decided to try it for dinner. We rang and booked for 1830 and were on time. A nice and friendly waitress showed us our table, we had a view of the street which was Ok. We both ordered the home made lemonade as I saw good reports about it... More

Staff really made this place, but the lack of ambience ruined it, for the prices, even in Leura, was expecting more .. there was nothing to distract us from the view of cobwebs and the bus sto[. Entree was good, mains okay, mine was overly sweet. But service was lovely and that is a real credit to the place :-)

Had a fantastic meal in December 2016 and went back last night looking forward to the delicious middle eastern flavours we experienced previously. It was disappointing, the food was average and those wonderful flavours were gone, as was the chef who had created them.

Excellent. We were early and were lucky. Others who did not book were turned away. Make sure you book. Garlic bread great, with tasty ducca. I had seafood tagine which was so tasty. Recommend it. Was lucky enough to try the pork belly after commenting it looked so good and it was. Cooks for 18 hours. Just an excellent restaurant..... More

Greeted warmly and attended to promptly , the specials explained we were on our way. We ordered a smorgasbord of meals that included the Falafel platter, Salmon, pumpkin/cauliflower/haluomi dish, a tender steak and a chicken dish which was my absolute favourite. All these were superb in both presentation and flavour with spices used with so much flare. The home made... More
