The service was attentive and personable without being overbearing. Glasses never ran dry and accommodation was made for our children 6 and 8. The starter was a sharing platter with something for everyone. Potentially a little heavy on the cheese for us for a starter, but that is just personal choice. The main courses were something special with really generous portion served in a way that everyone could sample each other’s choice. Special nod to the Seafood Pasta which was really enough for two.

The service is beyond exceptional. Ranga and Joseph run a tight ship. Joseph in particular is polite, charismatic, and can make an astounding number of mixed drinks. My cup was never empty when he was on watch. Not to mention, it was always a pleasure to speak with him. I look forward to my next visit to the Ritz, if only to sit down and say hello to Joseph one more time.

By far the BEST hotel hospitality i have ever received in a hotel!!! The hotel services and amenities are great but what really made my stay enjoyable was the hospitality on the 7th floor lounge. The team that serves the meals and drinks is by far the best I have encountered in several high end hotels in the middle east. They are so friendly and helpful and seem very eager to please! Joseph has to be my favorite with his amazing service and amazing ability to make cocktails!!!! If you visit the lounge you will NOT be dissapointed!!! I would return to this hotel just because of the amazing service by the lounge team! See you again soon!
