Highly Commended Best Business Lunch 22 Comments
Gaucho’s classy decor – chrome, black and white, with some spectacular light fixtures – is certain to wow business guests, while the huge windows allow the midday sun to stream in, offering sweeping views of DIFC. The lunch menu is a refreshing break from the norm: it’s divided into three savoury courses, each offering a selection of smaller plates with a South American theme. The salad and ceviche options are perfect for those with smaller appetites, while the meaty burger will keep hunger at bay during a busy afternoon in the office. Service is speedy (turnaround time is about 45 minutes) and staff are professional and discreet, but happy to stop for a chat if you’re dining solo. And they’re always keen to offer menu recommendations if you have trouble choosing. Our only niggle here is that mineral water isn’t included in the lunch price, but it’s a small fault in an otherwise great lunch experience, and fellow diners obviously agree – the place is buzzing most lunchtimes.
