Great food fantastic service ,, shame that there were only 3 other tables taken, on arrival staff were very attentive,knew all about the menu and were always available to assist.

Food very good although menu limited what is there is very good and served with a certain style and class, that is missing from many places in Dubai..

“All types of meal are posible here...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

If you're not Muslim and looking for meals during Ramadan this can be a good option. From a VERY good breakfast to decent lunch if may find what ever you look for here. Bear in mind that I was also staying at the Ritz-Carlton so it tends to be perfect. I had a burger in the first meal (too medium to my taste) as my lunch and the other day during dinner some very good Arabic appetizers for a decent price (I strongly recommend this last one). Beers are really expensive if I compare to Brazil.

“Absolutely DELICIOUS Penne Parma Pasta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

We decided to dine at Splendido for a business lunch with hubby and his business partner. The menu was limited because of the Ramadan season but when I asked if the chef could add Parma Ham and Chilies to the pasta, I was told yes.

To my surprise, the meal more delicious than I expected - the tomato base used was simple and over the moon yummy. The right amount of chilly was used and the portion for a food critique 'Just Right'.

Service was exceptional, Nina our server was pleasant. The background music was lounge-like and pleasing to the ear.

Well done CHEF...!!! Maybe you should add this to your menu.

“Good food and friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

This is a bar serving food. The quality of the food was excellent as was the service. Several choices of beer on tap and a wide selection of spirits. Monday nights between 5 - 7 pm, there is free finger food.

“Lovely setting average food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

The menu is comprehensive. Service is ok but not up to Ritz Carlton standard .The food is bland and although beautifully presented the foods lacks taste.If the food matched the setting and the ambience this would be a great restaurant .Unfortunately it only gets half way .
