The Baked Brie for 2 was a delicious starter. Warm and creamy with dates, nuts and honey with toasted ciabatta. We tried one serving of the scallop meze and spec. Small but tasty. The Chicken and Apricot Tagine was hearty and piping hot in its cast iron bowl. Beautiful flavours but next time I would wait for winter when I need warming up. Chicken Parmigiana was the perfect choice. Stacked in a bowl served with a generous salad in fact this is one Restaurant where the side salad is to be enjoyed as part of the meal and not left on the side. I was disappointed at Dessert time though as I saw Rum Baba on the Blackboard and was anticipating a little yeasty cake drissled with a rum syrup. Alas I was served a Rum and Coke (i think) in a glass so thats something to be aware of. The Affogatto with Lemoncello was enjoyed by my husband though. We knew what to expect for that. Lovely staff and the place got really busy for a Tuesday night so that says it all.

We dined at Zeytin at the Mount on Friday night as part of our holiday to the Bay of Plenty. Best food we experienced whilst here. Fresh and pure ingredients enhanced in a natural way. The scallops were my favourite however the braised beef was definitely hard to beat. But oh my, if you're one for a bit of baklava then this is your place. Would definitely recommend and if I lived here I'd be there once a week for sure. 5/5

Our dining experience at Zeyton was awesome. We arrived about 15 minutes late but rang on the way to let them know. They said it wasn’t a problem and happily accommodated us. They were very friendly, service was excellent and the food. Will go again.

First time at this restaurant, and quite impressed with the set out. Service was faultless, when ever we had a question, it was answered kindly. Food was different in some aspects to what we are used to, and very nice. Always good to try things outside your comfort zone. Great sized meals, both my partner and I struggled to finish our meals, but we had too for dessert. Honestly we ate too much, but it was all so well presented and tasty.

We were welcomed straight away and shown our table. The waitress was very attentive and even gave us a free sample of a wine that we made enquiries about. The food was great.There were huge servings and it was served very quickly. We were never rushed and it was a very relaxed atmosphere. We would recommend to everyone.

The ambience of Zeytin's was incredible-great lighting, pillows and beautifully printed cushions. Our server was attentive & helpful. We shared a starter of calamari which had a delicious flavorful and rich taste and texture. It made us regret we hadn't ordered any other starters. Our two main dishes- chicken iskander and chicken tagine-were both lovely, the chicken was tender and tasty. We definitely would love to go back

The staff were lovely, attentive, friendly. The atmosphere and background music was great. The food was very good, although the gluten free menu was very limited, with only one main dish to choose from (apart from pizza) and no dessert options on the menu. They did make an ice cream sundae I could eat, so their willingness to go above and beyond was noticed. We would definitely recommend them.

We had a lovely meal. The food was very good and it was great to be able to have a meal out that was well balanced and healthy. I’m a vegetarian and there was plenty of choice for me. Extremely generous portions. The only reason we wouldn’t give it that fifth star was that it was lacking that extra wow factor for amazing flavour. Not a disappointing experience though and would definitely recommend!
