Named after a clan from Italy, Zepi Grill & Bar is a celebration of food, fun and great service. From the moment you walk in, you are greeted by friendly smiles and staff that have an eye for picking up on your preferred style, and can translate that into a dining experience suited to your needs.
Zepi offers both an indoor and outdoor area and presents a cozy, unpretentious atmosphere where raw brick and dark wooden furnishings add a touch of warmth whilst soft, twinkling lights create a feeling of dining under a starry sky.
For those inquisitive minds, an open show kitchen framed by wooden shelves housing recipe books creates a connection between the kitchen and the restaurant. It showcases a behind-the-scenes look into your food preparation and delivery.
On the Menu
A small, yet delectable menu inspired by South African flavours offers a tasty selection. Feta, spinach and mushroom springrolls served with rocket and cherry tomato salad, or crispy chicken wings served with spicy mayo are two of the options for starters. For mains the Bazaruto Chicken comes highly recommended – a half rotisserie style chicken with hand cut chips and seasonal vegetables. If you are banting, they will replace your carbs with extra buttered veg. Providing an extra selection to choose from, a blackboard menu highlights the daily specials.
The desserts can only be explained as delightful comfort foods. Baked New York Cheesecake, scoops of Sinnful ice cream or a decadent chocolate brownie, your tastebuds won’t be disappointed by these classic favourites.
If outdoors is more your style, or for those beautiful summer afternoons and evenings, a patio overlooking the lush gardens or an extension of the pool terrace offers a relaxed yet vibrant dining option. With light jazz music playing in the background, a mix of high tables and chairs, couches with comfortable scatter cushions or pool lounges, you can’t help but feel welcome, refreshed and right at home as you drink in the casual, trendy atmosphere.
You can also choose to enjoy a light meal while you laze on the patio or around the pool. Choices off the Bar & Terrace menu include pulled pizza’s, which are all hand pulled, salads, prego rolls or the specialty SunSquare Burger.
Cocktails & Drinks
Cocktails top the drinks menu with the likes of the oh-so-delicious Zepi Collins cocktail made with Beefeater London Dry Gin, Fabbri1905 Peach, Pierre Jourdan Ratafia and fresh lemon juice splashed with bitters and sparkling water stirred tall over crushed ice. If you prefer a non-alcoholic version, try the MOJITO-LESS with fresh lime and mint muddled with your choice of flavour stirred over crushed ice and splashed with soda. You can also expect a selection of craft beers, MCC’s, wines and an impressive whiskey, brandy and cognac selection.
Situated in the suburb of Gardens at the SunSquare Cape Town and surrounded by a multitude of restaurants in the area, Zepi certainly holds its own. It is well-priced and has all the ingredients to provide quality service and great taste.
When you have been welcomed at Zepi once, you are likely to come back again and again.
