The food AMAZING, cocktails DELICOUS... you certainly will need a while to go through the menu which was surprisingly long. The Food presentation was beautiful set up. There were quite a few ingredients that were new to me but it made the dining more adventurous. If I was just about to review the food/drinks I certainly would have given it... More

Not being a vegetarian, this is one of the few v places I could thoroughly enjoy ! Went with two friends, and tasted everything we chose - each dish was simply excellent ! Both my companions (one of then vegetarian) had the same opinion. Tasty dishes, kind service. Thank you, will return when next time in Leipzig !

My girlfriend and I ate at "Zest" on Saturday night....neither of us are what you would call staunch vegans, but we try and eat food with little or no animal products most of the time. The menu at Zest was quite incredible! - I am so impressed with what they are able to do with the ingredients they have. We... More

I am probably going again for the brunch tomorrow! The interior of the place is minimal and nice. The food and wine we had were excellent.

We went based on the reviews. It's a trek out from town and the staff are super cool and a bit snooty. Food is nice and its great for veggies as everything is veggie and the menu changes every month depending on the veg available. We had parsnip soup (which was delicious) Risotto balls which were very nicely presented but... More

My wife and I took our son and his wife to this small vegetarian/vegan restaurant in South Leipzig. The menu is in English as well as German, and changes seasonally. The burgers were amazing - you have to choose 5 times from a range of fillings - and my wife was ecstatic about her 'meze' - a wonderful selection of... More

This food was so good that I would like to see this restaurant/the chef publish a recipe book. If I lived in Leipzig, or indeed Germany, I would be a regular visitor to make my way through the menu. My food was incredibly tasty as were the dishes that my friends chose. I even considered asking the people at the... More

This is a great vegan restaurant, I was releived to find it after all you often get is that vegan hot dog or vegan burger, or veggies with rice/pasta when going to vegetarian/vegan restaurants. The food is delicious and special, you have hardly ever eaten veggies, seitan or tofu that way before (at least I hardly haven't), even my omnivore... More
