The Ambience was light, airy and open with lots of sunshine. Food was good from soups to pastas to steak, Kids were also entertained by having a cookie making activity with the staff. All in all good time for family brunch

Limited range of food (we went on Friday evening for the South American themed offering) which isn't a bad thing in terms of mixing cuisines on your plate and wastage!

Drinks service was slow - we finally got some wine in a bucket and in the absence of suitable glasses on the table, commandeered a bottle and served it in our water glasses.

The staff were charming and very helpful, but there simply weren't enough for the number of diners in Horizon this particular Friday, although it was far from full.

I started with a pear, blue cheese and rocket salad. Not very South American I'm sure, but really tasty and fresh. I had nachos on the side, which were soggy and I had to pretty much wrestle the poor chap next to me to get the ones with some re-fried beans on them. Next up: the bean soup, which was the highlight of the evening for me food wise. Comprising mostly butter beans, it was rich and filling and accompanied by a small but good selection of bread. My friend had the chicken and lime soup which was rated highly.

Mains comprised a wide range of "chops" of meat and some chicken wings / legs - none of which are to my taste and were laid out like a school canteen - so I didn't go for any of them. There was a chilli in a huge pot which looked really un-appetising and I'm told had no kick to it at all. I couldn't find the paella - and so to dessert I went.

The usual Dubai pudding fare here - I had the mango mousse cake and the passion-fruit mousse cake both of which were good, if slightly synthetic, the churros (tasteless) and a date and walnut tart which was way too heavy to eat all of it.

You usually know what to expect from a Rotana, but Horizon at the Amwaj has some way to go before it lives up to its sister buffet restaurants: Channels at the Media Rotana or Pergolas at the Al Murooj. When it gets there it will be a good value night out.
