Description: Enjoy a casual dining option at Conrad Pezula in our relaxed and stylish bistro, Café Z. Located on the lower level of the hotel, this funky venue has been designed to reflect the natural, organic flavors of the menu; the eclectic décor is warm and inviting, with bright jewel-like colors, on-trend fabrics, comfortable seating and ambient lighting.Executive Chef Geoffrey Murray says Café Z is all about delicious, freshly prepared, beautifully presented food, served in a relaxed environment. The concept was inspired by the success of Geoffrey’s Farm to the Table menus which he launched at Zachary’s in 2010.At Café Z, our menus are constantly evolving to reflect seasonal quality and availability. The food is simple and wholesome - prepared from the fresh produce grown in the resort’s vegetable and herb garden, and sourced from local producers, ensuring a mouth watering array of dishes at consistently excellent value.

We loved Cafe Z and found it to be very accommodating in terms of service. The staff are pleasant, go out of their way if you have a special occasion you are celebrating, They're knowledgeable about the food, the wine and the locality.
The food is absolutely excellent and the wine list is good too. Children are catered for and treated beautifully by the staff.

Thank Anna B

Although not hotel guests we just showed up for my wife's birthday breakfast.
The staff was exceptionally kind, pleasant and once they knew it was Dominiques birthday they did al they could to turn this into an unforgettable experience.
Besides bubbly, we were spoiled with oysters, a freshly made birthday cake brought out by all the kitchen staff, singing and dancing " happy birthday ".
It is a brilliant experience that you will never forget!!!
Thank you so much to all the Conrad Pezula staff to make this breakfast unique.
Thanks to Yolanda ( manager ), Zoey-Ann, Bearonnay, Bianca, Jutta, Terence, Unathi, Clarice, Agnes ( the beautiful voice !), Bonga, Marlene and Hilda !
We will be back !

Warm welcome from our waitress in this relaxed and modern restaurant. Dinner started with bread baked in flower pots and served with flavoured butter. The rib eye was as tender as fillet and the smoked mash and organic vegetables were very tasty. Finished off with mousse. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening and we will be back.

I would say that the breakfast here was decent. I would however have liked to see a bigger variety for the breakfast buffet.

Surprising to read such negative reviews. This is certainly not a gourmet venue but fitted our needs following a day of travelling to the hotel. Good service and our choices of a beef burger and a pasta were freshly cooked, served hot and very tasty. That's all we wanted and we got it. Very attentive service and the choc chip ice cream was very good although less creamy than normal.
