Time Out Says
Since the restaurant recently underwent a revamp, we’re only too happy to return.
Its outdoor area has hugely improved, now feeling more like a restaurant than someone’s backyard. Inside, the relocation of the stage to the entrance of the restaurant divides opinion on our table – in fact, the whole overhaul of the interiors does (it feels a bit clunky and disorganised – our dining companion disagrees). Fortunately, there are two things we’re able to agree on – firstly, that the addition of high tables is a good move, and secondly, that service is woefully inattentive
Sigh. At least prices are still keen.
Piping hot dough balls and an American on a Romana (super-thin) base are as good as they ever were, but calamari in a stodgy, cakey batter returns to the kitchen barely touched, while the rolled, stuffed eggplant (aubergine) dish is no worthy replacement for the seemingly discontinued Parmigiana melanzane.
Still, with bottles of grape under Dhs160 and some top tunes (will Jazz@ ever be so quiet as during local musician Chad’s super rendition of Percy Sledge’s When a Man Loves a Woman?), we’ll be back.
