"Truly a restaurant of excellent fusion cuisine." "Zest has never disappointed, they're always ahead of their game."

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 Perruvian – Nikkei cuisine on the island. The menu offers favourites from our 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 duck and coriander Japanese gyozas, arepas with sliced pork belly, tempura of local prawn and their black venus risotto as a selection of 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 that conclude on a sweet note with just the right amount of curious flavour combinations.
