Absolutely delicious

Amazing starter, main and dessert. The menu may be small but there is always so much variety and something for everyone.

Just east of the centre of the city is this small restaurant in a larger complex with ample parking. The cozy interior is augmented by some outside deck seating, ideal for those balmy evenings and during the day. The small menu, always a promising sign, covers an adequate range of starters, mains and desserts to satisfy most tastes and wishes.... More

Warm reception and large helpings of great food. We had to wait a bit and were concerned since nobody appeared to be eating...but then it all came and was excellent. Notably good for young families. Good local wine list. [there is great new and trendy bar just next door!]

We love everything abour Zest. Our last visit was no exception. Even though we arrived during one of our infamous load shedding cycles no one was phased and we had a wonderful candle lit dinner. I like the one price per course menu and the food is truly exceptional.

A lovely little restaurant tucked away in the suburbs. The food is excellent and the service is good. The decor is great and the atmosphere makes you feel really comfortable. My only criticism is that the smoking section is attached to the main restaurant and if the place is full it is impossible to escape the cigarette smoke spoiling an... More

The food, particularly the lamb, is always spectacular at Zest. The staff is well versed in wine pairings.

Absolutely beautiful and delicious food. The menu is quite small, but there is something for everyone. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The fillet was incredible and the homemade peanut butter ice cream was to die for! Good service and welcoming chef and staff.

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!
