We enjoyed three excellent meal in this lovely restaurant. It's set in a garden at the Palace and has lovely seating, some in tents! The food was delicious and really tasty and all the staff were excellent, especially Dino who served us on two occasions. Do try the Lebanese red wine - it's delicious. Thank you

This is one of the best tasting emirate experiences we have had in the UAE. All of the food was cooked to perfection with taste out of this world. We ate on the HB option and there were many different dishes to choose from. It was recommended to us by the front of house staff and we were not disappointed.

Excellent choices on the menu and very attentive and pleasant service. Staff is knowledgeable about the dishes and easily accommodated various dietary requests. Reasonably priced for a fine dinning restaurant and definitely worth the quality. Would recommend the local style seafood.

Thank Yanko A
