We are a business comprising of two restaurants situated in the beautiful Georgian town of Whitehaven on the west coast of Cumbria.
We have the best of both worlds; amazing sea views on one side and the spectacular fells on the other.
Each restaurant has its own style and flavour. At Zest Restaurant we specialise in modern British food with the emphasis on local Cumbrian produce - especially our char grilled Cumbrian steaks and fresh seafood landed here in Whitehaven.
At Zest Harbourside Café Bar, we offer an ultimate snacking menu in a casual atmosphere designed to enjoy on your own or to share with friends.

Husband and wife team Emma and Ricky Andalcio met whilst working in the catering industry in London. They decided to leave London behind to open their own business in Emma's home town of Whitehaven. Zest Restaurant was converted from an old pub and opened in February 2000. After it's great success the couple decided to expand their business by purchasing a harbour-front disused fish warehouse and turning it into a family friendly, casual bar-café. Zest Harbourside opened in November 2002.
Both restaurants have enjoyed great success due to the quality of Zest's food, superb customer service and Zest's varied and unique style.
