It was nice to return to Jones the Grocer with the family after having been there a couple of times beforehand. It was the first time trying out their menu properly over dinner and drinks whilst soaking in the golden rays of the sun just before it slid down over the horizon. Ah, I love […]

About time they joined the breakfast club, don’t you think? Say hello to Koko Bay, which really doesn’t need an introduction. Yes, it’s that famous bali-inspired restaurant in Palm West Beach with amazing views of the marina, that hammock, that swing. I can imagine their start-up committee sitting around a table going – how do […]

Headed towards Palm West Beach to meet a girlfriend for a late lunch review – this was Senor Pico, a licensed Mexican joint situated right by the fountains and the giant West Beach sign (no hashtag as well, for a nice change 😉 ). We took a seat outdoors – and at 3:30pm in the […]

Dubai decided that the beachfront to the west of the Palm trunk was not wide enough. What did they do? They made it wider. More space means more footfall and of course – F&B outlets. I’m happy they decided not to over-populate this area and keep it a bit more bare and serene with just […]
