We visited Robertos in DIFC on a sunday evening after work and it was surprisingly busy with a nice atmosphere in the bar and restaurant. We had a drink in the bar first before an excellent meal in the restaurant. The bar area is lovely with views over the burj khalifa and an extensive drinks menu including a lovely selection of cocktails. I chose the famous Robertos Bellini which was presented in a shallow cocktail glass with Peach foam on the top and a pretty flower to garnish. We were presented with a lovely selection of Italian antipasti style bar snacks including a warm potato cake, mini bruschetta and tomato & mozzarella skewer. A lovely accompaniment to the drinks. After being shown through to the restaurant and ordering our food, we were presented with a large selection of fresh bread and dips which were delicious. To start with we shared the Caprino - goats cheese, beetroot carpaccio and caramelised walnuts. This was a good choice! The combination of ingredients works perfectly and the goats cheese is the best we'd ever had. As we had mentioned we intended to share the dish the waiter served the starter to our individual plates rather than placing it in the middle of us. We had the seafood risotto and Ravioli Toma for Main course. Both of which were delicious and very good value for money. They had an authentic Italian taste with homemade ingredients. The Ravioli was stuffed with cheese and served with a delicious sweet tomato sauce which the waiter explained was because of the small sweet Italian tomatoes they use. The seafood was fresh in a delicious risotto with fresh stock. We found a few shells from the seafood which we mentioned to the waiter and although we said it had not spoiled the dish in any way and we had thoroughly enjoyed it, the manager insisted on giving us a free dessert. So we filled with an espresso coffee creme brûlée which was a nice sweet ending to the meal. The overall evening was great with very enjoyable food in a lovely restaurant. The staff are so knowledgeable about the menu and we took the waiters recommendation of food and wine which we were pleased with. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for authentic Italian food in a fine dining restaurant in an excellent location. The manager said the restaurant had just won an award for best Italian in Dubai and we could see why!

They have the best Nihari in town, No copy, original dilli. Gravy dishes are tasty. Downside are the BBQ items. Hidden gem.

Swahili cuisine, which is basically both charcoal BBQ, and Indian 'spiciness' Biryani is the best in Dubai, hands down. And mishkaki (skewered beef kebabs) lovely. You gotta try Jambo's Passion Juice too Can't wait to go back.... A hidden gem!

Amazing experience. One of the best Mexican restaurants i have visited, the best part was they have a dedicated MENU for Vegetarians....not just a few dishes dotted in but a proper MENU....Food was excellent, service staff very friendly, value for money and everything right about the look and feel, outdoor would have been an advantage but i guess that should not matter as they nailed other things right!
