Time Out Says
One of many outlets in the sprawling Madinat Jumeirah and Al Qasr hotel complex, Al Hambra describes itself as a Spanish restaurant, but it’s a theme that never feels quite at the heart of its cooking. The room feels dated, too brightly lit and like an all-day-dining hall, and from starters to mains, the food is resoundingly disappointing. It’s a real shame, because aside from the exceedingly well-meaning service, a space like this in a highly rated five-star hotel is awash with potential – potential that Al Hambra shows no signs of meeting. Plates of cold cuts have an unpleasantly funky flavour, hot tapas such as padron peppers and calamari swim in unstrained, faintly acrid grease, and the strongest flavour of the Mediterranean you’ll find in the paella is the overwhelming taste of salt. If you dare, there’s a daily all-you-can-eat for Dhs195.
