Found this delightful little restaurant from an internet search of top 10 restaurants in Gordon’s Bay. Zest was top of the list, and for good reason.

The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly with the front of house staff very welcoming. The stand out for me was the food. I have not experienced such quality from restaurants owned by Jamie Oliver or Marco Pier White.

ZAR 155 (£10) got me me the spice crusted Pork with apple and sage compot. It was simply stunning and I would have been happy if this dish had cost three times the price.

A little gem of a restaurant that should be experienced at sun set with a glass of wine.

Best place to eat in Gordons Bay. Informal cafe style with friendly staff and good food. Not expensive but good wholesome food.

First it is important to note that they offer far more than their menu online on their website! The blackboard in the restaurant offers multiple additonal starters and main courses, all fresh seafood! We enjoyed the mussels very much. The service was a bit slow but there were two very large parties that all ordered at once. We were lucky to get our order in before them. Due to the large groups it was very very very loud inside and we could hardly understand each other. Reservations are recommended.

Had breakfast and lunch there while on holiday in Gordon's Bay. Excellent food in an unassuming environment with easy access and plenty of parking right on the beachfront.

Freshly made, very tasty meals. Well worth a visit. Limited but very nice veggie options available. Excellent value for money.
