Breakfast @ Isola Ristorante, Jumeirah Islands Clubhouse Dubai

A friend had suggested ‘this new place in Jumeirah Islands Clubhouse’ for breakfast. I remember seeing Isola on socials, and it had always been on the to-go-list.

Business Lunch @ Bella Restaurant, Grand Millenium Business Bay Dubai

First time I saw a bit of Bella was whilst sneaking into Caroline Stanbury’s instastories. I saw the shiny copper plates on the wall, the Dubai skyline and was thinking – ah, that looks nice, where is this? Bit of clicking and googling took me to Bella and the fact that it was in Business […]

An Italian Iftar @ BiCE Ristorante, Hilton JBR Dubai

Having spent a week in Sicily in April didn’t stop us from heading over to BiCE for iftar. You could never say no to good italian food. BiCE has been around ever since we moved over here back in 2012, and I’m sure it was around even before that. There’s a reason why restaurants “survive” […]
