Super friendly and on-the-ball service, interesting menu with light small plate options that are well put together using quality ingredients, cozy setting which is hard to find in the Cape Town winters 🥶, easy parking. Highly recommended. 👍👍

’The area that stands out for me is the service. The waiters were friendly and efficient, and every dish was piping hot, which of late has not been my experience when eating out. So, if you are looking for good food at a great price with excellent service Zest delivers.’  wrote Lorraine Hewitt.
