Rococo

  • Rococo
Decked out in deep purples, golds and reds, Rococo has a regal feel about it. The menu is presented as a two-page backlit book, which helpfully allows guests to read it in the ultra-low lighting. Portions of everything are small, artisanal and heavy on the wallet. But food is prepared well, whets the appetite and will leave you just about satisfied if you opt for three courses. Try the carpaccio di manzo to start, a delicacy comprising wafer-thin beef, white truffle essence, a quail’s egg and 24-month aged parmesan. The capesante d’orate (seared sea scallops) is a delicate and decorative dish that comes with a streak of parsnip truffle. But for something a little more filling, stick to the meat or pasta dishes. Head to this romantic spot amid the busy throng of JBR’s The Walk if you have a guest you’d like to impress. Rococo

    We have eaten here a couple of times recently, and will come back. It is one of the few places we have been in Dubai where the staff can have a knowledgeable discussion about wine, the rest of the service was exemplary including a warm welcome on arrival. The lobster in tomato broth is a must, sous vide duck was delicious, as was the rest of our food.
    The only small thing was that the second time we came, the curtains were drawn and the view of people wandering along the plaza reduces the ambiance a bit - just take a table facing the other way instead.

    Extremely dissapointed...
    food: 0 taste and schoolish-like presentation
    service: 0 knowledge/attentivness
    decor: altough beautifull, no one is there and mades it sad
    I call the manager to complain and never came, only cheff came to our table and "thank" us- in a very poor english (with very strong italian accent), for dinning with them... did I mention I told the satff I wanted to complain??

    Very dissapointed, since they got the new cheff the food quality has gone and what you can get now is nothing good... I always give 3 oportunities but not in this case... no flavour, no service and no atmosphere... one of the worst places

    Very nice food, chef Wlady is fantastic in his new innovations -it is true, some of them still need to be retouch, but food is very nice.

    However, service was terrible... lak of knowledge and NO ONE at the door to greeting us or to check our booking... ;'(((

    I'll be back cause I really like to keep on trying the food -despite the service.

    I looked for a nice romantic restaurant somewhere where we both hadn't both been before, what we got was a nicely furnished but somewhat depressing surrounding. The ambience was very drab with it being a Thursday evening, the food whilst very good was far too small to satisfy any kind of hunger and after 3 courses we were both still hungry.

    The view outside is also obscured by the fact it also doubles up as a podium link between the JBR towers, billing itself as a romantic restaurant whilst watching people cycling, running, skateboarding etc isn't exactly pleasing to the experience.

    Finally at 11:30, the tables were turned down, the music switched off and we got the distinct feeling we were impeding the staff who were keen to shut the restaurant down.

    All in all, nice food but disappointing - the hotel needs to work on a few things, especially the mouse-like portions.
