Time Out Says

Set over two levels, each offering different, but equally holiday-esque views of the Arabian Gulf (and the occasional smattering of super-yachts), this Italian restaurant at The Westin Dubai Beach Resort & Marina offers two distinct, separate dining experiences. Head to the al fresco upper deck for authentic (reasonably priced) pizzas and a more casual experience, or book a table downstairs and tuck into some Italian fine-dining. The lower portions of the venue are split into the restaurant and lounge bar, both best enjoyed during Dubai’s cooler months, when the indoors-meets-outdoors Mediterranean setting really comes into its own. Cosy, atmospheric and consistently busy, the food is elegant and well-balanced, and the mains are generously portioned. If you’re looking for casual dining then the pizzeria serves excellent, perfectly blistered pizzas, loaded with toppings alongside a holiday feel. Just fancy a drink? Head across for a sundowner where there’s a decent happy hour space to sit and chill out overlooking the hotels sprawling pools. A top-notch outdoor restaurant, and well worth a visit whether you have guests visiting, are on holiday yourself or just want those relaxed vacation vibes.
