“Sea bass in salt crust...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Often people think of Pizza and Pasta when talking about an Italian restaurant while the Italian cuisine has so much more to offer.
In Dubai, BICE, located within the Hilton Jumeirah Hotel, is a good place to explore a large variety of dishes and the wine collection offers a great selection as well.
If you like fish, my favorite item on the menu is the salt crust sea bass. You can select the sea bass before it is being prepared and once it is done, it will be cleaned at your table. By enveloping the fish in a thick layer of salt with egg white, all the juices of the fish are preserved during the cooking, allowing you to taste what sea bass is really about.

The staff are well trained and work as a team to ensure that each table receives the maximum service possible.

The ambiance is superb and while you are immediately attended, you should not come for a quick bite. You will do yourself a disfavor rushing through....

“Blows hot and cold.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Nice location near the Palm. Great atmosphere and attentive staff. The food was first rate. Monkfish osso bucco was particularly good. Antipasti was enjoyable.

It might be the change of season, but staff could not get the temperature right. On entry it was beautifully cool, but whilst eating the room became uncomfortably hot.

Following dinner, a pleasant walk along the water's edge is a great experience.

“Finally we ate at BiCE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

I will start off by saying.....Amazing!!!! We have been meaning to try this restaurant for a few years after reading the reviews on it. The experience definitely did not let us down.

BiCE was sooo good. We had the tomato/mozzerella to start. It is big enough for 4 people but oh, so, good! We both opted for pasta for our main. I chose the ricotta/spinach tortellini. The flavour was spectacular! My husband chose the veal ravioli. Again, the flavour was to-die-for! We were so full we couldn't even look at dessert!

The restaurant is nicely done as well. The service is attentive but there is not a server lurking around waiting. We will definitely be back! We will also tell all our friends as well.
