True to the spirit of Africa, Zest’s culinary style represents a rich blend of global influences. Its roots are embedded in French, Mediterranean and Italian traditions, blended imaginatively with the best local flavours and fresh produce.
Our stylish but imaginative décor creates the perfect backdrop for this unique and imaginative fusion.
What makes Zest so unique is that it presents all of this in an unpretentious country atmosphere. We believe in keeping things real – from using genuine butter and Italian olive oil to serving hearty portions.
A visit to Zest @ Kavinga will not only tantalise your taste buds, but spoil you with a visual feast of sweeping Lowveld panoramas with a charming country feel. The restaurant is situated on a farm in the hills above Nelspruit – about fifteen minutes from the centre of town – and is surrounded by large peaceful gardens with spectacular views of the Mpumalanga bushveld, adjacent farms and the magnificent Crocodile Gorge.
Quite simply, Zest is an experience.
