Zest is a real gem of a restaurant, a little out of the centre of Leipzig towards the south of the city. It's easy to find though - you can get a tram almost to the door. The food was superb, and the all-veggie menu offered so much to choose from, with plenty on offer for vegans too. It's not... More

This restaurant lies in Connewitz, the Left quarter of the city. It's wise to book if you wish to eat at this super little restaurant for it's very popular. We didn't so had to sit at a pavement table which was a bit draughty and noisy but still worth it for the meal was excellent, the staff helpful and friendly,... More

We came there on the search of a good vegan place to eat and were more than impressed. Although the tiny restaurant (reservation highly recommended) is very spartanic the food was high class - super tasty, creative and very well presented. Definitely the best of our vegan-Germany-tour (and we were at Kopp's in Berlin as well ;-). Pricing was reasonable... More

I always go there when I m around Leipzig and never got disapppointed. Soups are amazing and fresh, burgers are so tasty you don't want them to be over. Chips great and raw cut. Onion rings were HUGE and freshly made. I always ask for a fruit smooth and my fav is cocumber, kiwi and basil. Don't miss Zest and... More

This place is out of this world! The food is amazing, the flavors in the dish mix in such an harmonious way, almost hard to describe.. You REALLY have to try it! Great place also if you are with a meat lover because they will also love it, true story... ;) I had never tasted such a great vegan meal... More

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
