Last week I was invited to lunch at Zenzero, a stylish restaurant on the popular Camps Bay seafront. Zenzero has just had a total refurbishment and is now primed and ready for the busy summer season ahead. With its sophisticated and elegant ambiance it makes for a great destination after a lazy day on the beach.
The interior has a beautiful curved bar and organic lines which are echoed in the striking statement ceiling lights. Bookshelf-lined walls all around create a welcoming feel along with an open fireplace for those chilly evenings. Glass stacking doors open up onto the outdoor deck area which has a more laid-back feel with a pergola covered in greenery.
Salmon Cruido – Beetroot, citrus, fennel & lemon
The Italian-inspired menu is extensive with plenty of options to suit your mood and diet. To go with the seaside setting we opted for seafood for both our starters and mains. They do also offer salads, pastas and meat. The dishes were all beautifully plated and we enjoyed every moreish bite!
The prices are on the high end as one would expect for the prime location so for myself this would be more of a ‘special occasion’ restaurant. I don’t think the prices will deter any tourists though! When you’re being served delicious food by friendly, attentive waiters with a view to boot – who can complain?
Razor Clams – Chilli, fennel, thyme, bread crumbs & parmesan
Grilled Salmon Trout – Spring vegetables & lemon oil
Coriander & Mustard Seed Line Fish – Onion, tomato, garlic, fennel & baby new potatoes
