Time Out Says
We recommend booking a table at Cavalli for opening, at 9.30pm, and staying until midnight at the very least, by which time the venue will have completed its transformation into a flashy club. As you dine on appetisers like burrata with honeyed aubergine and squid ink ravioli stuffed with potato and mussels, the music gradually gets louder and livelier, until 11.30pm when the lights go down. Either you’ll love the animal-printed, chandeliered setting, or you’ll find it tacky and ostentatious, but there’s definitely something odd about eating a refined meal at a candle-lit table to thumping club music while a steady stream of partiers fill up the lounge tables. This said, you can’t help feeling in the mood for a night out by the time you get round to paying the bill (be warned that the cheapest bottle of grape here costs in excess of Dhs1,000). Pasta dishes are particularly good, as are the desserts, while the meat and fish dishes could be better in terms of freshness and tenderness. There’s also a selection of pricey but impressive “tableside signatures” for two such as salt-crusted sea bass and wagyu beef. What will keep you coming back, though, is the overall experience rather than the food.
