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!
