Beachside Dining @ Twiggy by La Cantine, Park Hyatt Dubai

We had spent a few evenings by the Park Hyatt lagoon pool back in December, watching the restaurant being built. Little did we know that it would be Twiggy, one of La Cantine’s newest venture – and a very successful one it appears to be, seeing how busy it was on a late Monday afternoon. […]
