Time Out Says
Dinner at El Sur really comes into its own with a seat on the balcony, with it not being unfair to assume your meal in the Spanish tapas house would be considerably less enjoyable should you fail to snare an al fresco spot. That’s not to say the inside doesn’t have its charm, but those positive points are confined to the bar through which you arrive. Central to it is a long, high sharing table, perfect for a casual glass of grape and selection of cheeses and cold cuts and other European antipasti. For the rest of the dining area, sandwiched between the backlit bar and the doors to a gorgeous Iberian terrace hemmed in by a rising tree line (you are on the first floor of The Westin), is an afterthought, little more than a walkway between the two other far superior experiences. Adding to the authenticity is a menu that comes in both Spanish and English. It’s packed with influence from all over Spain, from the Catalan stew to the Mediterranean carabineros (deep sea prawns), as well as a several customised paella dishes ranging from the light vegetable option (Dhs95) to a considerably heavier foie and truffle option (Dhs135).
