About Zest Restaurant and Terrace

Our latest menu has been created with an emphasis on the very best of the seasonal produce available here in the Northern Territory and form our neighbouring states.
Our menu has evolved from its original, classical roots to a lighter handed, more natural approach. Where in the past we looked to Europe for ingredients and to the masters of classical cuisines, today we celebrate what is on our door step, choosing beautiful, heirloom and organic vegetables and fruits and allowing them to shine and stand proudly on their own.
Our meat and seafood is local and sustainable. Our relationships are directly with growers and farmers and our inspiration is driven by simple ingredients produced with care and dictated by the seasons.
Our dessert selection is an opportunity to indulge in some traditional and modern selections.

The whole night was very good. However, we did not appreciate another customer approaching us to do some form of survey/selling. We felt it was intrusion, other than that, could not fault.

Went for dinner on Valentines day here and the food & service were both exceptional. I had the 300g scotch fillet, was cooked to perfection, melted in my mouth. My fiancée had the curry of the day, (butter chicken)I must admit I was a little jealous as it was delicious. The staff were absolutely lovely. The tables were set quite romantic, with a huge lovely rose and a cute candle. Will definitely be coming back for dinner, as menu is great!

As an Accor member the value for money at this restaurant is first class. Have eaten here a number of times now, and the food on this occasion was magnificent.

Everything was as good as usual. A busy night so we waited over an hour for our meals. Service was ok. We could tell they were understaffed.
