Our Story

Zest Restaurant is where East meets West in both dining and décor. Opened in 2002 as the first Asian fusion restaurant in Malta, Zest remains an award-winning pillar in Malta's contemporary culinary scene.

Located on the first floor of Hotel Juliani, within a lovingly restored St Julian's townhouse, Zest enjoys the added bonus of an open-air terrace overlooking romantic Spinola Bay. Attractive features include an open wine cellar and a sushi bar on the restaurant floor, where patrons witness the art of preparing Japanese sushi.

INDONESIA

Indonesian dishes are known for their colourful presentation and delicate spices. For a taste of Indonesia try our Nasi Goreng or Beef Rendang.

JAPAN

The Japanese approach to food is precise, focusing on the beauty of fresh, seasonal ingredients and intricate presentation. Each Japanese dish is the result of millennia of tradition and training. For a taste of Japan, try our exquisite sushi or rib eye teppanyaki.

SINGAPORE

Singaporean cuisine is a blend of East and West—like the country itself—with bold spices and unexpected flavour combinations. For a taste of Singapore try our homemade braised chicken tortellini with Sinpaporean Laksa and coconute veloute.

GUANGDONG PROVINCE

China's Guangdong province produces one of the best-loved culinary styles in the world: Cantonese. Cantonese food is well balanced, modestly spiced, and fresh in flavour. For a taste of Cantonese food, try our steamed dim sums.

THAILAND

Thai food is famous for its bold spices and beautiful combinations of sweet, sour, bitter and savoury—often all in one dish. For a taste of Thailand try our Tom Kha Gai soup or lobster Phad Thai.

BALI

Balinese dishes are some of the most complex in the world, accented by the distinct flavours of nutmeg, turmeric, cumin, galangal and shrimp paste. For a taste of Bali, try our Balinese Chicken Curry.

FRANCE

French cuisine is elegant in presentation with classic, rich flavours. For a taste of France, try our Angus beef fillet tartare marinated in an Indonesian dressing with puffed rice and egg yolk snow.

MEDITERRANEAN

Mediterranean cuisine is beautiful in its simplicity, and lends itself well to outside influences. For a taste of the Mediterranean, try our red prawn carpaccio with citrus dressing, beetroot gel and crispy beetroot tempura.
