Visited Segreto twice during August 2012 whilst stayin at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel. We were recommended the restaurant by a fellow guest who assured us it was very family friendly and was on the free half board deal.
When we arrived at the VERY posh looking restaurant I thought that there was no way this place is "Family Friendly" an as my kids were 6 and a very boisterous 2 at the time.
We were seated and proceeded to order our meals, Unfortunately the air conditioning in the restaurant was very fierce, as it is in most places in Dubai, and my little girl was uncomfortable and started to fidget. We managed to eat our delicious starters when the little one got worse. I decided she was probably tired and popped her in the buggy to try and get her to have a snooze. I marched her into the marble lined reception but she was only happy when she was being pushed. At this point I was approached by a guy in a suit, who I later discovered was the restaurant Manager. I thought to myself "Here we go, please can you take your noisy child outside."
But no, the manager enquired after the kids welfare and said he would give her a push whilst we finished our meal in peace. I was absolutely taken aback. He proceeded to wheel her around in the buggy, never out of my view, and had all the staff cooing over my daughter and generally spoiling her rotten. We finished our meal in piece and he returned her to us for dessert.
Can you imagine this kind of family friendliness from a reataurant manager in the UK?
This is the kind of service you can expect here.
Oh and the food was superb!!
Thanks you Segreto, see you again in the Summer.
