Qamardeen Hotel
While the venue for Qamardeen’s cheese and wine night feels very hotel lobby-esque (the atmosphere and setting isn’t the best), the cheese-for-money factor wins here at a bargain Dhs109. The cheese selection ranges from strong and powerful to a variation of more subtle bries, and three glasses of good grape-based beverage wash down the selection nicely.
