This is one of my favourite places to eat in Dubai and we eat here regularly. The staff are friendly and it's like visiting old friends! The food and service is always excellent. Being Gluten Intolerant is not as issue as the staff work hard to accommodate my needs. Love this place.

Ambience and interior are very nice. Cozy feel and good service. You can even get that Xmas feel inside the restaurant although it is probably 25c outside in December

After dinner the chef came along again to ask some feedback on his dishes, my wife her risotto was a little too salty, but still nice. He emphasized we should told him and he... More
