Zest Restaurant

The "top quality food" that is "consistently excellent" make this one a favourite.

Housed in the elegant boutique Hotel Juliani, on the curve of Spinola Bay, Zest Restaurant provides an intimate dining experience within a stylish setting. After ascending the short stone flight of stairs, pause a while on the verandah to admire the twinkling lights below. Take time to order a pre-dinner drink from the bar with a choice of beverages as comprehensive as they are enticing. The bustling life beneath you will simply fade away as you relax into the delectable meal and sip away at your crafted cocktail.

Zest Restaurant is the number one destination for Asian fusion presenting the finest Japanese and Peruvian – Nikkei cuisine on the island. The menu offers favourites from their house special sushi rolls to fluffy bao buns, curries and noodle dishes. Zest’s holistic approach ensures an alluring culinary experience that begs repeating. Savour the flavours of the Crispy Tofu & Kimchi Japanese Gyoza, Nikikei Traditos, Crispy Octopus Taco and their Indonesian Satay as starters, but make sure to leave space for your mains. Try out the selection of teppanyaki glazed with sake, black garlic and edamame purée with protein choices including beef rib eye, chicken or duck served, alongside a glorious Japanese-style fried rice. End with their culinary twist on Asian inspired desserts to conclude your meal on a sweet note with just the right amount of flavour combinations.
