Make sure you read the fine print prior to dining in this restaurant. They have a no food sharing policy in their fine print. So basically if you order just one meal and you share a portion of that set meal with someone on your table who is not hungry and is there just to accompany you while you are having your lunch. The waiters will start to stare at you funny and when you receive your bill, you will be asked not to share your meal the next time you dine in, as this is in the fine print of their terms and conditions.
Shouldn’t this fine print actually be in large print at the entrance so that customer could make an informed decision prior to entering this restaurant and get humiliated for receiving a service they are paying for?

foood wz gud, spclly the nachos a sstarters and bread served with the italian touch...took soo long to brinng our order..the end wz gud.it wz my friend's birthday, so we gave them a cake to bring it after the dinner..i was under the impression tht they would casually keep it on the table...but the staff came with cheerful singing of Hapi B'day song and to my surprise "drumming" as well as if its one of d biggest celebration of the restrnt....wzs very surprised...and unexpected.

Was here Thursday night (12th). Fresh warm bread was brought to the table to share. For starters we had the spinach stuffed mushrooms with 3 types of cheese. Delightful in taste. For mains ordered for pasta and tenderloin steak. Pasta portion was generous. The lime juice with mint looked and tasted good. Upto this point,all was well.
The steak was a big disappointment. The meat itself was not like a thick block of meat I was expecting but more like a ribeye. It was just too sinewy and a struggle to cut through. Never imagined a tenderloin, if that's what it really was, to be like this. USDA beef or not, this was a poor show.I was asked if I want it well done and when I said medium rare, i got the feeling that this is not something they are used to. It was plain raw on the inside, the heat from the cooking hadn't even penetrated the centre. My wife said she saw what looked like ice within the meat though the waiter claimed it is not frozen meat. They took it back and cooked it some more.
The huge chunk of tiramisu was plain insipid with just too much of tasteless cream on it.
The steak and tiramisu aside, what they do, they do well. It would be wise to stick to pasta while patronizing this joint.
The total after a 15% discount on the Emirates NBD card was Dhs. 201.

The ambiance was good. But disappointed by the service. "ZERO OUT OF 5" .
