This week we had the pleasure of popping in to the newly refurbished Zenzero in Camps Bay. Plush new interiors, a delicious new authentic Italian-inspired menu and friendly, attentive staff make it one of our top places to be this summer!
One of Cape Town’s most popular beachside dining destinations recently underwent a complete refurbishment. The plush new interiors at Zenzero are as easy on the eye as the restaurant’s iconic views of Camps Bay beach, and the beautiful people that flock there.
The new look was conceptualised by Soda Design in collaboration with Kove Collection MD Paul Kovensky. All warm neutral tones and natural textures (think stone, dark wood and ample greenery), it’s a sophisticated yet serene scene complete with custom-designed light fixtures and bookshelf-lined walls that enhance the comfortably elegant home-away-from-home ambiance.
Kove Collection Group Head Chef Amber Deetlefs and her team have extended the menu to feature authentically Italian new breakfast, lunch and dinner offerings.
“The updated menu reflects the inimitable spirit of the stunning location and la dolce vita - the typically Italian concept of living life to the fullest. Flavours are still punchy and robust, ingredients fresh, and helpings generous”.
Breakfast on ricotta pancakes with lemon and honey butter. For lunch and dinner, share a selection of antipasti (like Sicilian arancini with bolognaise, tomato sauce and Parmigiano-Reggiano, or insalata panzanella with tomato, burrata, basil and torn bread). Mains include classic pasta dishes (from spaghetti aglio olio e peperoncino to linguine alla vongole), fish (from lemon sole with herb butter, capers and anchovies, to pesce fritto with pickled vegetables and squid ink aioli), poultry (chicken saltimbocca with prosciutto and sage brown butter) and meat (slow roast lamb shank). Finish with a fresh take on tiramisu with Kahlua jelly, dark chocolate and coffee crumble.
