Nominated for Best Business Lunch 38 Comments

Sitting outside on the terrace overlooking The Westin’s meandering pools, shady palms and beach in the distance, lunch at Bussola couldn’t seem less business-y – which is why it’s such a pleasant alternative to the more formal lunch spots closer to the Media/Internet City offices. Indoors, the Italian restaurant hasn’t quite the same appeal, the mainly cream interior coming across as a little bland and cold, so if the weather permits, dine outdoors. The small two-course lunch set menu features Italian classics such as caprese salad and pasta as well as grilled meat dishes. Food is consistently well cooked and fresh, but is hardly exciting or unique, lacking touches of finesse that would make it special. But that’s actually perfectly fine for lunch in such pleasant surroundings, and the friendly service won’t keep you waiting, even if there are plenty of hotel guests to attend to as well. A good choice anytime either side of the scorching summer.
Two-course lunch set menu Dhs120 per person. Business Lunch is served from Mon-Thu noon-2.45pm. Open daily noon-11.45am, 7pm-10.45pm. The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina, Al Sufouh Road, www.starwoodhotels.com/westin (04 511 7391).
