“Great bistro, chef really outstanding. Do not be discouraged by small shopping center location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2011

Great food in this small bistro, probably in the top 2 in Pretoria. Try the lamb dishes, and always have the lemon pie desert.

“You're in for a cozy, tasty evening.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2011

I really enjoy Zest - it's among the best in Pretoria. Intimate, artisan restaurant with a seasonal menu, personal touches and warm atmosphere. Good for a long, lazy, romantic dinner; elegant but not stuffy.

An excellent choice, but book in advance. Very small restaurant, but very good quality.
