Time Out Says
Set on the beachfront, it’s a truly stunning setting. For those familiar with the Aegean, it will conjure up memories of lazy days spent enjoying course after course of fresh seafood, crusty bread, olive oil and crisp, colourful salads. It certainly feels special as the sun goes down and the pretty lights hanging from the trees start twinkling against the shimmering water. The walk down to the shore to find the venue only heightens the sense of anticipation, and first impressions are great. A wooden basket containing breads, oils, herbs and tomatoes is a lovely touch while perusing the menu. There are cold and hot starters, freshly caught seafood, mains and casseroles. The restaurant is described as Aegean, so the food choices straddle Greece and Turkey. Cold starters are brought to choose from. The uskmuru (smoked mackerel) is allowed to sing for itself and has only the lightest of dressings. Hamsi (anchovy fillets) are given a similar treatment. The kabak (like tzatziki, but made with courgettes rather than cucumber) is the perfect dip. The octopus, meanwhile, is disappointing. While it’s perfectly cooked, the tentacle sitting with nothing to accompany it seems a little steep at Dhs75. Another let-down is the fener (monkfish) casserole, which is watery.
