Moules et Frites @ Le Rose Dubai, Address Fountain Views

We returned to Le Rose on a Tuesday evening, to review their Moules et Frites night. Mussels and fries, for those who are not well-versed in french (*waves*, me!). Went with a girlfriend this time – as it’s not just a date night spot, is it? It’s just a nice, intimate place to go catch […]

Date Night @ Eauzone, One&Only Royal Mirage Dubai

We returned to Eauzone one fine school night, all excited and dressed up for a much-awaited date night. One&Only Royal Mirage’s modern asian beachside restaurant had recently introduced a new menu. It would be our first time dining there without the little people, which also means we can actually look at the food, eat it […]

Steak et Frites @ Le Rose Dubai, Address Fountain Views

There is a new French restaurant in town, and it’s called Le Rose Dubai. We braved the Sheikh Zayed Road traffic one Thursday evening to review the newly opened venue. It was Steak et Frites night – which you would know as ‘Steak and Fries’ – french-style, of course. How was the venue? And what […]

Caviar Afternoon Tea @ The Lounge, Address Beach Resort Dubai

Let’s […]

Lobsters and Sushi @ Sea Fu, Four Seasons Resort Dubai

Though we have been to the Four Seasons, it would be our first time walking into their gardens, and to dine in Sea Fu. As you would expect from the Four Seasons – their gardens are carefully manicured and every corner appears to have been designed for that picture-perfect snapshot. Add in those fluffy clouds […]

The Botanist Gin & Jazz Evening – The Rooftop @ Folly

Nice to return to Folly after a very early ladies night in the summer. This time for the launch of “Souk Madinat’s favourite rooftop terrace” – yes I stole the tagline from the invite. The rooftop is quite dreamy in the evenings, isn’t it? You can’t really get that in any other spot in Dubai […]

Rang Mahal – Indian Cuisine @ JW Marriott Marquis Dubai

It was only appropriate to dine in the newly reopened Rang Mahal on Diwali. By chance – honestly, as we had to reschedule the initially booking. I’ll put my hands up here – I am no expert when it comes to indian cuisine. So please take note of this, when you are reading this review […]

Ula Dubai – a Mediterranean beachside restaurant in the Palm Jumeirah

Introducing Ula, a new beachside restaurant situated at the very end of Palm West Beach where Dukes the Palm sits. It replaces West 14th – one of the first restaurants we visited many years ago when we were fresh to the Dubai dining scene. I had seen images of Ula online and was quite excited […]

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 […]

Dinner in the Sky – Worth the hype?

How would you like to have a 3-course meal, perched 50 metres in the air – on a structure that is being hung off a crane? Here’s Dinner in the Sky – located right by Sky Dive Dubai. A Dubai ‘bucket list’ item for sure – particularly as it does come with a price tag. […]

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 […]

Afternoon Tea at the Burj Khalifa has always been a bucket list item for me.

Well, we have yet to check out The Lounge, so let’s settle with Level […]

Jazz Night @ CMP Bar & Grill, The Pointe Palm Jumeirah

Picture this. You are sat in a leather-clad booth with your other half, one hand holding a glass of red. There is live jazz in front of you. The girl sings to familiar songs – from Nat King Cole, to Mariah Carey, whilst the talented saxophonist moves his fingers over the keys, blowing in tune. […]

A bit of Brazilian and Lebanese @ Li Brasil, Address Beach Resort Dubai

During our staycation at The Address Beach Resort, we had dinner with the family at Li Brasil – their fine dining restaurant serving a fusion of Lebanese and Brazilian cuisine. Interesting mix, isn’t it? I am not well-versed in either cuisines, so please keep that in mind when reading the rest of the review. I […]
