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.
Service was very "matter of fact" and not what we have come to expect from Novotel Restaurants. Had to wait for over five minutes before someone attended to us as the restaurant rerception desk even though there were only four people in trhe restaurant and we were there early. Some food was good but the rest just OK
My husband and I were celebrating his Birthday, we had exceptional service from Kirsty and the other staff. Our meals were delicious, particularly the scallops and Barramundi, which was the best we have tasted in Darwin. We enjoyed it so much, we returned the following week to celebrate our Anniversary with family. We will definitely be back again. The ambience in the restaurant is not great but the bar area Atrium is lovely.
Meals were true to menu description and well prepared staff knew the menu well and were able to give good information. A very enjoyable experience.
We have been told that our meal will be done around 30 to 40 mins but we have waited over 1 hour ! The service people are too less to give service ,it’s hard to call a waiter/waitress for service.
The building is great, unfortunately restaurant guests are seated to the side. In our case we were seated with a view of kitchen door as staff set up for breakfast the next day
The service was a bit slow but overall friendly staff and food delicious.
The sea food dishes including the fried Barra, barra spring rolls, and the prawn salad, were really good. International style dishes and the desserts were average. In general the food was good and all of us enjoyed it.
The 2 waitress we had were very new and not very confident and did not explain things very well. Food was nice though.
The food was very very good, the service was very very ordinary, only one staff member, Angie who was doing her best but run off her feet, but could not forget all the staff that showed up there around 8.30pm to put all the breakfast cereals etc out, very moody not happy and made us feel like we were no welcome. No mention of desert or coffee also the toilets, one was out of order and the other absolutely disgusting, which I told reception staff about
No complaints at all from any of the five of us. Food was good. Service was good. Prices were good. And can use Accor card for a discount. Enjoyable dinner.
Excellent service and food cooked to perfection.
A really enjoyable experience. Scallops and Barramundi were superb. Will visit again before we leave.
Dinner was superb
Great service and one of the best Chicken Curries I'ved had.
Second time we have been there in just over a week and again, very happy with everything
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.
We enjoyed our dinner so much and the service was excellent 😍
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!
Great all round
Excellent setting with an appealing menu
Good variety on menu. Nice food in a relaxed setting.
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.
Great food and service
My wife really enjoyed her 1st time dining at zest
Nice food, reasonably priced. We'll definitely come back one day.
