Zephyr Mediterranean Cuisine Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

I hadn’t heard of North Beach restaurant Zephyr, who kindly asked us in for dinner, so I asked my friend Google a little about them. What I found was a Gold Plate winning restaurant that has many positive reviews online and a very loyal local following in the Perth northern beaches.

Zephyr’s website describes it’s self as an Italian restaurant. So when I arrived I was expecting to see pasta and pizza on the menu… you won’t find that at Zephyr. It’s a European restaurant, which has “Mediterranean style” dishes on the menu.

We dined on a rainy Wednesday, the restaurant had a lively atmosphere, with tables of people happily chatting and enjoying tunes played by Pablo the Spanish guitarist in the enclosed alfresco area. I enjoyed a bit of music with my fruity drink!

For main, Chef chose the Harvey beef fillet ($39). Cooked nicely medium rare, it was topped with a plump field mushroom, truffle salt, shaved parmesan and a red wine sauce. He also picked a side of chunky roasted rosemary and garlic potato chips.

I picked the pork belly ($36) as it’s one of my favourite cuts of meat. The pork was served with creamy mash, scallops and a house made spicy kim chi. Julienned snow peas were perfectly cooked. Unfortunately the crackling wasn’t crisp, but the rest of the belly meat was moist and flavoursome.

Little Chef chose the crumbed chicken ($12) from the kids menu. This came with salad, but not the accompanying chips as stated on the menu (I didn’t realise this till afterwards!).

For dessert I was being good, picking the flourless chocolate torte ($12) , a gluten free dish. The warmed torte was very tasty and served  with fanned fresh strawberries and a nougat gelato.

Included in the price of the kids meal was a scoop of il Gelato ice cream. Little Chef chose the decedent chocolate, which looked delicious and was served with a couple of marshmallows on the side.

Chef chose the filled doughnuts ($14), which is apparently Zephyr’s most popular dessert. This is served with an apple salsa, butterscotch sauce and vanilla gelato.
