29 June 2023Zuma Capri has officially opened for its first summer season, bringing guests a taste of Japan to the fabled island of Capri. The new location will bring the world-renowned contemporary izakaya concept by Co-founder and Creator Rainer Becker to the rooftop of the elegant Capri Palace Jumeirah, with unparalleled views of Ischia and the glittering Gulf of Naples.

Zuma brings its signature menu to the island including highlights such as the marinated black cod wrapped in hoba leaf and roasted lobster with shiso ponzu butter. In addition to the classics, there will be a number of dishes available exclusively at Zuma Capri, inspired by the famed fragrant Capri lemons, including sliced lobster with Capri lemon and oscietra caviar, Capri Lemon Mochi for dessert, and the refreshing Kakigori lemon cocktail.

Every night from 7 pm to 9 pm, guests can book a sunset experience like no other on the island. With some of the best views on Capri, guests will enjoy aperitivo-style cocktails with a Zuma twist and a light bar menu with hot and cold small plates. High-top tables in the bar and lounge area promise guests a completely unobstructed view of the sunset, set higher up on the hotel’s rooftop.

Rainer Becker, Co-Founder and Creator of Zuma said: ‘’We are so excited to announce the opening of our third Italian restaurant. Capri Palace Jumeirah is the perfect match for this new venture, and we look forward to a busy summer season.’’

Ermanno Zanini, Regional Vice President for Southern Europe and the United Kingdom, Jumeirah Group added: “We’re delighted to welcome guests to Zuma Capri this summer and deliver another exceptional culinary experience in this coveted corner of the island. Capri Palace Jumeirah captures the true spirit of the Italian Dolce Vita, and with the addition of Zuma Capri to our exquisite culinary offering, there’s a further appeal to discover the unspoiled charm of Anacapri this season.”

First created in London in 2002 by Rainer Becker, Zuma restaurants are now located in 22 destinations around the world. The new island outpost of Capri marks Zuma’s third restaurant in Italy, following Rome (opened in 2016) and the seasonal pop-up restaurant in Porto Cervo, Sardinia, which debuted in 2022 and returns this year for a second season.
