About us

Zest is on fire

To run the two restaurants, Chef Pavel has appointed Executive Chef Scott Melvin at Zest, originally from Scotland, working at Gordon Ramsay’s maze in London, and for Chef Jason Atherton in Shanghai. Chef Pavel has surrounded himself with staff that have worked with him at previous restaurants, including GM Nelson Ferreira.

Zest Restaurant is located in the recently refurbished 4-star newkings boutique hotel, the interior and terrace refurbishment done by Interior Designer Landy Walker. She created an earthy, contemporary, raw, yet polished space. The Piece de Resistance of the interior is the wonderful sea view from the restaurant, and the tribal face wall art on the doors separating the restaurant and the event venue.

Cocktails to the Point!

Wine & Cocktails

Our Cocktail list is designed as a salute to Sea Point, each cocktail named after a landmark of the suburb. Our mixologists prepare all our cocktails with in-house freshly-squeezed fruit juices.
