Small and nice restarant, few tables, excellent for a romantique dinner. It's located into the Menlo Park Shopping centre, close to the Brooklyn teathre, but it's not so easy to find. The chef makes almost everything, even the bread, and in every dish you'll find his special touch. The price is really good, cheap if compared with the quality and... More

We had a wonderful experience here for Sunday lunch with a friend. We had lovely meals, especially the sole, as well as the leg of lamb. Will definitely indulge there again!

I would really recommend this restaurant. A small menu, but the quality of food and service is normally excellent. I once had the most outstanding orange souffle there for dessert. Unfortunately it was a special and not on their normal menu. They also prepare a delicious mushroom risotto to go with their fillet. I have been there on quiet nights... More

Hubby & I joined another couple to this little almost hidden gem. What a delight! Service efficient & friendly food outstanding and well chosen wine list. My salmon was perfect, hubby says the best pork belly in town, rump steak was devoured by fussy friend and the vegan surprise dish was superb. We'll be back soon!

I had frequented Zest a number of times a few years ago and was excited to revisit this little unique Bistro in the heart of Pretoria. It was nice to see owner and chef, Sydney was there, as always ensuring quality food and dinning experience. He recommended sparkling wine, red wines as well as desert wines that were well suited...

Visited here with friends for a quick dinner. Couldn't decide on a wine and the owner helped with suggestions. He really know his stuff! Got introduced to a new wine and we loved it. Menu is small but of very good quality. We had lamb, beef and chicken. All was well prepared and served with innovative twists which we enjoyed.... More

Both the food and wine are top end in Pretoria. They often have wine tasting and food pairing evenings which are out of this world!

We discovered Zest Bistro about half year ago. Visited them since about 5 times. We always have a good time there. We like seasonal menu which looks small and at the same time so many good things to choose from what it take time to make the final call what to order. Usually menu made for meat lovers and even...

Zest is an intimate restaurant with very good French food and nice wines. It is really different from other restaurants in Pretoria and worth a visit. It is small, with personal attention from the very dedicated staff, good well prepared European/French style food with fresh ingredients. Try the veneson carpaccio it's delicious! They also do wine tastings and wine and... More
