Communicative and accomodating
, Jul 2022
Mark, the host, is very communicative and accommodating. I'd recommend taking the shuttle rather than driving or taxiing, as the trip can be difficult.

Hi Ethen, Thank you for coming to the Cooking Show and it was a pleasure to meet you :) See you next time :) Blessings- Mark & Alecia
Fantastic experience
, Jul 2022
Absolutely fantastic food experience. The freshest food and highly informative. Food for the mind and body. The drive up there was an experience in itself.
Unique experience
, Jul 2022
This was a great experience! We paid the extra $20 to be picked up right from our hotel. The drive itself was something, especially the last three miles or so which was not paved. Upon arrival, you are greeted with a cold drink. The essence of family is in the air with the staff. There is a bar where you can grab a drink before the farm tour. The food experience itself was spectacular. The mix of flavors explodes in your mouth while you enjoy a bottle of wine with the five course meal.

Hi Robin, Thank you so much for coming and this sweet review. Its a pleasure to have people who want to come and share with our family the celebration of food and nature. Hope to see you again soon :) Blessings- Mark & Alecia
Beautifully amazing.

Amazing, quaint little restaurant. The chefs are great and very knowledgeable about the ingredients and it’s benefits used in each course. Straight from their farm. Loved every moment.

An Experience
, Mar 2022
Food was fantastic. Farm was a.azing but a trek, lots of hills and steps. Just be aware that there are children and nearly everyone is smoking pot.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2022
Hi Carole, Thanks for coming :) Yes- we are a small family business and have 4 children from 21-2yrs. We live at Zimbali. It is our life and Zimbali is a farming lifestyle we are sharing with you. Our kids are around, but are very sweet and lots of fun. Regarding 'Pot". This is an individuals choice and is legal now in most places. We are a Rasta Family and do not judge. There is no smoking in the cooking studio and plenty of outdoor space to sit where this shouldn't physically bother anyone. Thanks again Carole :) Blessings- Mark
Captivating Culinary Experience
, Mar 2022
Zimbali mountain cooking studio is an captivating culinary experience that everyone must try when you visit Jamaica. From the hospitable welcome on arrival, the beautiful home, edible and fragrant farm walking tour, and the delicious dining experience executed by Chef Alicia, this was an unforgettable moment. We will definitely be back!

Fantastic Dining Experience!

Every dish was perfection! I highly recommend this dining experience! Alecia and Mark are the great hosts! You don’t want to miss this farm to table experience!
Wonderful evening!
, Mar 2020
Wonderful meal. The farm is gorgeous and the dinner was amazing. Delicious, interesting, great flavor, and a wonderful evening. I would recommend wearing bug spray or long sleeves/pants if you tend to get bitten by bugs.

Wonderful Experience
, Feb 2020
A wonderful experience. Beautiful scenery on the drive up. Fields of sugar cane which were being harvested. Zimbali provided the transportation and our driver was great. We enjoyed the farm tour. The retreat is beautiful. Colorful and relaxing. Our dinner was excellent and we really enjoyed the farm to table meal prepared with fresh ingredients. Yum! Highly recommend Zimbali if you are in Negril.

Had a great time and an incredible meal. It was an experience worth every penny. My only recommendation would be some sort of rail on the stairs down to the farm tour to help those people with mobility issues.
