I bookef this as a special treat for our first wedding anniversary and a treat it was indeed!
Our table was booked for 8pm but we were advised to arrive at 7 to enjoy drinks on the roof terrace. The terrace is very stylish and give you stunning views of the whole city. We sipped our bubbly as the sun set and the call to prayer rang out over the city; a pretty magical start to the evening! We also enjoyed nuts and olives and some lovely little canapes out in the fresh air before heading down to our poolside table for the main event!
The poolside tables are gorgeous, very swanky surroundings...we felt a bit like we were in a james bond film!! The waiting staff were attentive but discrete and presented the food really well describing each dish for us.
Our pre-starter was a tiny cup of brocolli and blue cheese soup which was delish! Even my blue cheese sceptic husband loved it which is always a compliment. The starter was a chicken salad made with the juiciest shreds of roast chicken and a delicious butternut squash puree and spiced apricot sauce. Light and very tasty. Main course was seabass, two big fillets perfectly cooked and not a bone in sight. It was served with a rich and creamy risotto and celeriac (I think!) puree. There was a pre-dessert which included a lovely pear and cinnamon lassi and pud was a fantastic tart tatin with butterscotch, yum! All washed down with a very tasty rose wine.
A really faultless evening and worth every penny (£55 a head for 5 courses) - you would pay a LOT more for food of this quality in the UK...an excuse to book that flight without a doubt! Thank you for such a lovely evening!
