Situated within the Emirates Palace this is a fabulous Italian restaurant and is suitable for families as well as couples. You can eat either inside or al fresco on the courtyard. The menu is varied with something to suit everyone and wine is available by the glass. Staff are good and attentive, great place for dinner!!!

Four of us had dinner here in November. We sat outside on a balmy evening and enjoyed a first class meal with excellent wines. The restaurant was not easy to find in this huge hotel but it was worth the search.

Based on the excellent reviews decided to try this Italian. Really a very average to poor meal. Good service but the quality of the produce and the rather tacky design really left our party really disappointed.

The Palace Hotel, is by far the most beautiful Hotel I have ever seen. The Mezzaluna Restaurant meets this standard. The Décor is "modern plush" with bright colors and unique design. We enjoyed the outdoor area that overlooks the beach. Occasionally a camel tour passed in the distance. To enter the Palace Hotel you will be granted entry if you... More

We decided to have a quick bite at Mezzaluna before the evening concert with the NSO. The sampler of traditional antipasto was excellent and the olive dishes were really delicious. We loved the mushroom, cured meats, baby octopus,artichoke and pizza. The service is excellent. We fell short on time and had to rush a wonderful meal before the concert. I... More

We decided to eat here for our wedding anniversary dinner and were not disappointed. Yes it's expensive, but all good things are. The view from the terrace out across the luxurious palace grounds was breathtaking and the food was extremely good. Couple of minor things we found disappointing - 1. We booked a table in advance but despite this the... More

One of my favorite places in the world, it is truly a great place to dine, simply an awesome 8 star experience. No matter, friends, family or business, it is a wonderful place. Especially Gwen Amelie, Denny and Danny have made the stay pleasant, but over the years Gwen Amelie has been a positive asset. Strongly recommend this place.
