Spent almost two months in Palolem/patnem and Zest was by far the best breakfast/lunch in town......we ended up eating there most days (after trying out various other places) Food was excellent and the staff were lovely!

I spend a week in Goa last month, and Zest became one of my favourite places to have my meals. The ambience is calm and with a good vibe and the food is really good. I loved the ramen and also the quesadilla.

I’ve eaten here at least 30 times during my two month stay. The staff is personable, funny and friendly. The atmosphere is relaxed but upbeat. The food is fantastic. If you’re in Palolem make sure to check zest out. You won’t be disappointed.
