Located on a private apex of Palm Jumeirah and surrounded by golden sands, tropical gardens and cascading fountains, One&Only The Palm is an elegant beachfront oasis where the luxuries of modern Dubai meet the charms of old Arabia. The hotel offers a secluded spot in which to unwind, starting with its elegant all-day dining restaurant, Zest.
Marble floors and plush cream chairs are accented with flourishes of green foliage, silver leaf and cut-quartz crystals in the confines of this beautifully-appointed restaurant. Michelin-starred Chef Yannick Alléno orchestrates the resort's superb culinary experiences, so you can expect the very best cuisine here. The menus blend the culinary influences of the Middle East, Asia and the West, so whether you’re indulging in a lavish breakfast, a light lunch or a sumptuous dinner, you’re sure to love every moment.
Generous seating both inside and out on the shaded garden terrace make Zest an ideal choice for dining with friends and family, perhaps before or after a day’s sightseeing or relaxing on the private beach. Whichever activity you have planned, an energising smoothie or fresh juice is an excellent way to start the day, and Zest has plenty of each on offer. Follow up with eggs every which way, freshly-made pancakes, waffles or French toast with a range of naughty and nice toppings, or get stuck into a bowl of coconut porridge.
Lunch sees light bites such as salads, sushi and sandwiches served alongside more filling dishes including pizza, pasta and burgers, while dinner could be anything from seared beef wagyu rib eye to a selection of hot or cold mezze with Arabic bread. The desserts ought not to be missed either, whether you decide to finish up with a profiteroles, ice cream or a milkshake.
Themed nights, including Italian, Arabic and Asian mean that guests at the hotel can mix things up, though with the choice available at Zest, you’re unlikely to get bored.
