Time Out Says

When a venue has been about a while and is a go-to place for post-work drinks, it’s easy to take it for granted. But Caramel, a permanently-packed lounge bar during the week, deserves to have its food taken on its own merits. And when looked at with a fresh eye, it stands up to scrutiny. There are plenty of small plates for sharing (we love the mac’n’cheese bites, chicken lettuce wraps and kale and quinoa salad), sushi and Japanese-inspired dishes and more substantial main courses (think beef short rib, braised lamb shank and pan-roasted salmon). The vibe is fairly chilled, with a live DJ providing the tunes most nights, and staff are happy to help but know when to leave you to it. The prices aren’t that bad either, especially if you come for drinks after work when the happy hour is on (until 8pm). The menu might not be filled with the most cutting edge cuisine in DIFC, but what the kitchen do is all really good. One to keep on the radar.
