Dictionaries define zest two ways. It is A) the tasty peel of a citrus fruit and B) a synonym for enthusiasm or energy.
Both of which make sense when it comes to Zest Restaurant in The Gailes Hotel, Irvine.
A short walk from the popular Gailes beach, The Gailes Hotel is on Marine Drive in between Irvine and Troon.
A family-owned, four-star luxury hotel with golf and spa facilities, it has a welcoming bar and restaurant called Zest.
Warm walnut and gorgeous soft furnishings create a modern, contemporary look inside the restaurant.
