Food was great, service was terrible. Having been a patron for years and coming back when we are in the lowveld, it’s sad to see this once exemplary restaurant lower its standards to this extent. Service was exceptionally slow, from the beginning until the end of the evening. Our group even had to get up to get a wine list from the bar in lieu of being offered wine by our waittress. This trend continued throughout the evening.

Zest Restaurant

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.

First, when dining out, the food is usually paramount. I was with a group of six, and everyone enjoyed their meals: appetizers, main courses, and desserts (which only three made room for). I had the lamb shank with mashed potato and asparagus. It was fall-off-the-bone...MoreThank you for taking the time to review our establishment. And thank you for making mention of the Seating. Not something we get to try out every day. We have investigated, and will certainly make work of it.

I believe there are two outlets of this restaurant, with one in Riverside Mall, and the one I was at in I'langa Mall. The URL seems to be for the Riverside one, but at least the phone number will help.

We ordered the calamari and fish for my mom and there was so much on the plate we had to take half of it home. It was delicious. The Sushi is by far the best sushi I have eaten... even beats Cape Town fish market.

We stopped here for a coffee and comfort stop during our full day safari. The restaurant was clean and the tables were reasonably well cleared. The prices were very competitive - 23.90 rand for a cappuccino or a latte. Worth a visit.

The Food Fundi

Conveniently found just off the N4 en route to the Kruger National Park and all of Mpumalanga's major tourist centres, The Food Fundi Coffee Cafe is a welcome haven in the heart of Nelspruit's bustling CBD. With the sound of fresh espresso beans being ground, the comforting scent of baking bread, and fragrant home made preserves and chutneys bubbling away in the kitchen, it's the perfect venue for your lunchtime business meeting (with free wireless Internet), or for breakfast smoothies and fluffy omelettes with friends after gym. At The Food Fundi, it's all about mouth-watering flavour, value for money, gourmet daytime meals, and all-day breakfasts.

Great atmosphere, decor, service, food and value. My wife is super-critical of healthy ingredients and this is one place where she has an abundance of options that are all well prepared and served with a smile. By far our favourite breakfast or lunch establishment in Nelspruit.

Lovely decor and great staff but the food was so good!! We understood Orange restaurant to be he best in the area but compared to this place it was for sure the better place.
We ordered the tapas options (you could also have them as a man in course) and they were all excellent. The mushrooms were so good we ordered three portions!!!
Must try if your in the area!!!

Great spot for lunch with lots of activity around. Coffee was super and the burgers exceptional. Service by staff and management interaction was great! It's always amazing to see the effects of hands-on management of such establishments.
