Delizie Caffe Gourmet with Kids @ Dubai Harbour Yacht Club

Dubai Harbour is literally our own backyard. As soon as the area opened up about a year ago, we have been there with the kids to scoot, cycle and simply run around. About a month ago, whilst cycling with my 6 year old, we ended up at Delizie. I did not realise that there was […]

Luigia : A family-friendly Italian spot in JBR

I should have gone to Luigia when they first opened up in JBR. Kids play area, authentic Italian food, close to home – ticks all the boxes, right? 🙂 After their back to school event in September recently (which was so much fun, by the way) – we returned with the family to review the […]

DRVN by Porsche : An automative-themed restaurant in Bluewaters Dubai

Somewhere in Bluewaters – lies an automative-themed restaurant called DRVN by Porsche. It would be our first time checking it out, when we went over mid-summer to review the venue. Cars, coffee, and art – what an interesting cafe concept. Here’s what to expect from DRVN by Porsche.

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. Good time, seeing that the weather is still *thankfully* quite cool, or actually very cold and windy these daysearly Feb 2022. Off I went on a school day […]

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 […]

Business Lunch @ Filia, SLS Dubai

Shortly after SLS opened its doors here in Dubai, social media went into a little explosion of its own. There were so many reels of Fi’lia and their rooftop pool – that steady camwork leading out to their terrace, I can just picture Fi’lia’s staff shaking their heads watching guest after guest collecting content for […]

Our Neighbourhood Italian Joint – Cucina Mia @ Dubai Marina

Back in August, I saw a post about pizza making for little ones in our neighbourhood. Made a phone call, a spot was booked for my girl and off we went. She had such a great time kneading dough, spreading tomato sauce and sprinkling cheese all over the place. All the fun things toddlers get […]

Pizzas with Kids @ Torno Subito, W Hotel The Palm

“It’s very expensive,” she said, as she took away the beautiful plates from our table. Two minutes late and the probability of it ending up on the floor was pretty high. My 2-year old’s lips started to quiver. Oh no. Please don’t make a scene here. Not in Torno Subito! Cellphone out – as my […]

La Belle Vie Brunch @ Bleu Blanc, Renaissance Hotel Dubai

2022 Update : Renaissance Hotel is currently St Regis Downtown Dubai Kid-free. They should have used that as their promo-tag. I had to check with Bleu Blanc as it was not mentioned anywhere on their website or social media platforms that this was a kid-free brunch. Imagine how excited I was – a chance to […]

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” […]

An Italian evening brunch @ Al Grissino, DIFC

It’s been awhile since we’ve gone to brunch with friends. Out came the handy Entertainer app and ‘Al Grissino’ popped up. I jumped onto social media to see if anyone else has been and saw this from fellow blogger Foodie with Suitcase , and decided – yep, we’re going. Their website had a few more offers and the Thursday […]

Lunch @ Medzo Italian Restaurant, Wafi Pyramids

It’s Thursday, time to head for lunch 🙂 I ended up choosing Medzo in Wafi Pyramids, because of a few simple reasons : a) They do pre-orders, which was very critical to us lot as we don’t have a very long work lunch break (and don’t like to wait for food….) b) I’ve been there […]

Positano Evening Brunch @ JW Marriott Marquis

Last Sunday, we went to Positano at JW Marriott Marquis for some fine italian buffet. It was literally 4-days of super pigging out with M being here, haha. Positano’s located on the 2nd floor of the hotel. Last time we were here was nearly a year ago now when we stayed for 2 nights when […]

Urbano @ Souk Al Bahar

Love Entertainer Vouchers. So I went to Dubai Mall to meet up with mum after work today. Decided on dinner at Urbano as it was the first restaurant that popped up when I was scanning through the Ent Dubai book. We got there before 7 so it was pretty empty at the terrace at first. […]

L’Olivo Ristorante @ Rixos The Palm

Thursday night, thought we’ll venture to Rixos The Palm on the ‘other end’ of The Palm for dinner. It was quite a bit of a drive pass the Atlantis and we couldn’t help but think, what if, what if, what if. There is no other way back to mainland than through the tunnel. They really need […]

Ronda Locatelli @ Atlantis

First off, I’m not the biggest fan of Atlantis. (Sorry Atlantis) I guess the few times that we’ve been there we’ve had not-the-most-pleasant experiences. Maybe it’s just timing. I don’t know. I keep thinking it’ll get better but the thing is, there are just so many other restaurants and bars in Dubai so my thoughts […]

Dinner @ Carluccio’s, The Dubai Mall

I’m actually still sitting here in Carluccio’s as I wait for the other 3 to arrive. I didn’t plan to write on Carluccio’s as I’ve been to the one in the Marina Mall with G for a random weekend lunch and it wasn’t that super. This one on the other hand is actually, quite nice […]
