Best Restaurants in Jamaica

Voted Best Luxury Hotel in the Caribbean TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards

“ZEST is one of the five character strengths that contribute most to a sense of life-satisfaction. The other four are curiosity, gratitude, optimism and the ability to love and be loved. If you’re looking for a way to increase your happiness, add ZEST to your life”.

With world-acclaimed restaurants in Miami, Grand Cayman and the Bahamas, award-winning hospitality duo, Chef Cindy Hutson and Delius Shirley (son of famed Jamaican Chef Norma Shirley) bring their globally renowned ‘Cuisine of the Sun’ philosophy to The Cliff Hotel.

Casually elegant, with floor-to-ceiling views that open onto a softly lit cliff-top patio overlooking Negril’s breathtaking coastline, Zest is a gourmet delight for all the senses. A mouthwatering fusion of authentic Caribbean spice blends and innovative flavor combinations that keep you coming back for more, it’s the perfect balance of amazing world cuisine, impeccable service and captivating views.

Culturally reflecting the rich diversity of Island cuisine, fresh farm-to-table ingredients weave together a seasonally driven menu of signature dishes. Even internationally inspired classics are given a quintessentially Jamaican nouveau twist.

Traditional Italian fare is transformed into tantalising Jerked Chicken Penne Pasta. A seemingly everyday staple vegetable like Breadfruit becomes a tropical taco encasing locally caught fish dusted with toasted cumin and coriander. Old school, mid Atlantic crab cakes are given a spicy West Indian curried makeover. … and what would a sober banana fritter be if it didn’t get drunk on rum soaked raisin whipped cream!

Guaranteed to please even the most discerning of palates, Zest is the perfect recipe for breakfast, lunch, dinner or simply a Cliff Hanger cocktail or two.

Breakfast: 7:30 a.m. – 10.30 a.m.
Lunch: 11.30a.m. – 4 p.m.
Dinner: 6:00 p.m. - 10PM with the last seating at 9 p.m.
