Visited twice, had the Mexican bowl and the Indian bowl. Both were lovely, well cooked and good quality. Prices are ok, Service is fine. Indoor and outdoor seating in a good location. Had the passion fruit sorbet as well which was great. Both times they were 'out' of a lot of things on the menu so be prepared to take whatever they have available

After weeks of avoiding salad on safety grounds, at last we were able to devour fresh and delicious vegetables! Zest original salad bowl and maze platter between us, chilled coconut to wash it down- heaven! What a gem

I have been in Palolem for four days now and have been back to Zest every day, it's that good! The food is all so fresh and full of taste. The staff are all very happy and helpful, R.D.X helped me decide on what to eat and was very friendly. My favourite things on the menu are the green smoothie bowl, nourish salad, meze plate and green ninja juice. Zest is a must try, but beware.. once you've been it will be an addiction.

I finally visited Zest on my last day in Palolem and have not been deceived. The ambience is very nice, the service is friendly and impeccable and the food delicious. But to be honest I found it very expensive even if the ingredients are organic. I've been to other places where they prepare food (also make their own bread) with organic ingredients. They were still expensive but not as expensive as Zest. It is still worth a visit but to be honest even if I had the time to I wouldn't go back here.

Hi!

Thanks very much for taking the time to write us a review. We are glad you enjoyed our cafe. Please be aware that the ingredients we use are expensive and hence the slightly higher prices than other cafes in the area. The raw lasagne and the raw cake that you had are full of nuts, avocado and imported ingredients such as nutritional yeast which we make the vegan cheese from. These cost us a lot to import. We also pay gst tax which is included in the price and not an extra.

Best wishes

This cute little cafe with in- and outdoor seating has the best healthy food in Goa. In my time in Goa this has become a homebase. <3
Their smoothie-bowls are out of this world, as is pretty much everything on the menu. You can't go wrong here. The guys that work there are the sweetest! Special shout-out to Ardi, who serves there every day with the biggest smile. Also a good place to get some work done or plan further travels as they have proper wifi.
Long story short, I couldn't be more excited about ZEST, go there!!
