We had lunch here and it gave us a feel for Zambia cuisine and flavours. It is next to the road, so can get a bit dusty and noisyat times. Food was great and service good and friendly. Worth a visit

Zest Bar and Restaurant is a very friendly place to eat, drink and enjoy an evening. It was that good that we went there four times during our stay in Livingstone.
