Zest Restaurant

Just as the name implies, Zest Restaurant offers palate-pleasing dishes in a casual and relaxed atmosphere.

Zest's "modern Canadian cuisine" celebrates the ethnic diversity of Canada. Our menus feature an exciting range of flavours influenced by the cuisine of Asia, Italy and France. The passion, innovation and adventurous spirit of our chef burst forth from every plate.

Our wine list includes a well chosen selection of both domestic and imported offerings. We delight in presenting quality vintages from Niagara wineries, balanced with a careful selection of old world wines.

Zest's contemporary decor is hip and relaxed. From the gleam of the open kitchen to the relaxing blue tone of the diningroom, Zest's atmosphere is unpretentious and comfortable.
