Description
A visit to Zest 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.
