    Business Details

    Zest is about great food, in a sceninc country setting, great wine and a wonderful experience.

    Zest @ Kavinga is more than an award-winning restaurant with an impressive collection of fine wines. To us, it’s a philosophy that celebrates the adventure, passion and joys of life.

    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.

    For Dining
    If you want to get your day off to a great start with a scrumptious breakfast or need a light meal to keep you going during a busy day, our country fare is the perfect solution.

    If you want to linger over a substantial meal, our restaurant menus fit the bill perfectly. GT has selected a pleasing combination of dishes for his Chef’s menu, which is a firm favourite.

    If you’re feeling a bit more selective, our popular À la carte menu offers something for everyone. Whether you’re after a leisurely business lunch or a romantic dinner for two, Zest does it with style.

    A visit to Zest @ Kavinga is also the perfect way to scout what we have to offer for your special event – whether it’s a private party, a lavish wedding or a flawless conference. Remember, we’re famous for our catering too!
