Opening tomorrow (Tuesday September 1) from noon until midnight, Koko Bay aims to bring a slice of Bali to Dubai, with Balinese-style interior that features natural handwoven materials, a neutral colour palette and rustic finishes along with fresh greenery.
The beachfront restaurant will also have a large terrace and private beach so foodies can dine al fresco with toes in the sand, or soak up the sun in the restaurant’s sun loungers.
There will also be dedicated lockers and a shower facility for those looking for a dip in the sea before heading back to the restaurant.
Speaking of food, expect a mix of Asian and European dishes, with starters including lava prawns, assorted grilled skewers, Hokkaido scallop ceviche with a citrus granita and a selection of unique maki rolls such as organic quinoa, crispy kale and beetroot.
As for mains, there’s hot plates including nasi goreng, Cantonese-style steamed red snapper, slow-cooked beef cheeks, Koko Bay’s signature fish and chips and sea bream with Thai coconut and young peppercorn sauce.
Guests can also expect burgers, salads and grilled seafood and meats from the wood fired Robata grill.
For those with a sweet tooth, the menu features flambéed white chocolate dome, Mochi, dropped lemon tart and plenty more.
On the nightlife side, Koko Bay will also have a selection of guest DJs performing throughout weekends from day until night.
