Step out onto the al-fresco decking of this wooden-style restaurant overlooking the Dubai Fountains and you’ll feel as if you’re being treated to a private meal from your very own holiday bungalow. Surrounded by water, dim lighting ensures that the fountains are the focal point, and the jets literally light up all vantage points like glowing harp strings. The food is pretty special too. This is the type of establishment that prides itself on the little things, like a basket of crunchy deep-fried wantons instead of the stock standard prawn crackers. This is something you might want to remember, especially if you plan on ordering a similar starter, such as the crispy spring rolls with minced chicken, mushroom and sweet chilli sauce, which are not over or under-stuffed with filling. The mains are quite traditional, think green curry with chicken and beef tenderloin. Desserts, however, steal the show: opt for the chocolate spring rolls, which, when cut into, ooze runny chocolate sauce. And they’re paired with a tart lemon sorbet.
