Located in Crowne plaza, Of Dubai Festival City. This place is known for its best beer. Raspberry beer being my personal favorite !! When in this place, do not forget to try the beer tasting sampler !! Just love their outdoor ambience, a pleasant one during winters !! Their antique interiors are also a feast to the eyes. A perfect place to visit on a weekend for a couple of drinks 😉
Please forgive my pics, as they were taken at night 😦
Our weekend joint !! Again because of the soothing music and lovely atmosphere.. And when it comes to food, I am awestruck!!! So very appetising and marvellous. Hubby and I truly enjoyed our dinner date.
We went for golden fried prawns (AED 60) and batter fried calamari (AED 55), as we are seafood lovers. Again a perfect cook and the prawns and calamari which didn’t turn rubbery and was just right. I felt it was little on the oily side, but neverthless tasted good. I loved the way they served the appetizers on the wooden board, It kinda brings out a beautiful and rustic feel to it. The quantity was great and value for money.
For the main course I opted for an Ostend Fish Stew. It contained a medley of mixed seafood like haddock, Salmon, Prawns and Mussels. The balance of the flavours was perfect.. Loved that extra zing of white wine in the fish. The mussels were cooked quite delicately and left me wanting for me. Although found the white sauce a little on the heavier side as it was too very creamy and rich, The quantity is really good for 2 person. We were not able to finish off the main course since we binged on starters a little too much 😉 oh and of course the beer 😀
Hubby opted for a Chicken Honey Mustard (AED. 80) Again an awesome dish, the filling of mozarella inside the chicken was delicious. The asparagus, crunchy and nice. Bacon was done beautifully. Sauce was explosive. I loved the way those bacon were wrapped around asparagus !! Quite a pretty presentation !!
The plating of every food and the presentation, very very classy. And not to mention my favourite raspberry beer which helped me wash down the food with even more happiness 🙂
