Great summer Abu Dhabi Chaîne event: Restaurant The Vista @ The Club (9. December 2017)

It is always a pleasure to attend a Chaîne event somewhere around the world as you meet interesting people each time and you’re always very warmly welcomed by the local bailliage. The luncheon (600 AED) started with plenty of “Perrier-Jouet Grand Brut Champagne, France” which was perfect on this sunny day on the terrace. Once […]

All but an Italian food offering: Restaurant Mezzaluna @ Emirates Palace Hotel (8. December 2017)

I love Italian food – and since I’ve lived one year in Milan, I’ve grown even more fond of it. However, the Mezzaluna which calls itself an Italian restaurant isn’t really an Italian restaurant. The “bread and spread” was fine and actually quite good. The tomato pesto with pistacchios was an interesting combination and quite […]

Decent breakfast selection but not over the top: Restaurant @ The St. Regis Abu Dhabi (8. December 2017)

Decent breakfast selection but not over the top: Restaurant @ The St. Regis Abu Dhabi (8. December 2017)

My limited experience with The St. Regis hotels has set the threshold rather high. The St. Regis Puerto Vallarta and The St. Regis Mumbai have set the bar incredibly high in terms of breakfast standards. So, obviously, I was expecting the same from The St. Regis Abu Dhabi but unfortunately it didn’t live up to […]

When an international restaurant serves a local hit: Trader’s Vic Restaurant & Bar @ The Ritz Carlton Hotel (6. December 2017)

A friend has talked about the ‘chili hamour’ for quite a while so I was rather curious how it tasted and if it was really as great as he had announced it to be. And against my expectation, it was really a great dish. The fish is tender, the sauce applied to it is rich […]

Good members only club with a view: Capital Club Bahrain (4. December 2017)

The Bahrain Capital Club is a members only club in the Bahrain Financial Harbour and is definitely offering a great view onto the sea. The “bread & butter” selection is nice as the breads are rich and there is quite a variety to them. The “amuse bouche” served was rather simple and not really that […]

When service is ridiculously slow: Furn Bistro & Bakery @ The Westin Bahrain City Centre (3. December 2017)

When service is ridiculously slow: Furn Bistro & Bakery @ The Westin Bahrain City Centre (3. December 2017)

The Furn Bistro and Bakery remains a good place for dinner but there is definitely one issue with it – the speed of the service, respectively how long it takes the kitchen to prepare the food. Luckily, it is worth waiting as the dishes are actually quite tasty. The “Humus Bil Lahme (lamb meat)” (3.200 […]

Lovely place with healthy food offering in Bandra: Pali Village Café (2. December 2017)

Lovely place with healthy food offering in Bandra: Pali Village Café (2. December 2017)

The Pali Village Café is probably the closest to a real local Indian food experience I’ve had as I just didn’t dare to try the actual streetfood in the 40 hours I spent in Mumbai. I went for the “prawns in lemon coriander broth, chilly flakes” (445 INR) as a starter which were way better […]

Outstanding breakfast selection: Restaurant Seven Kitchens @ The St. Regis Mumbai (2. December 2017)

The breakfast selection at the Seven Kitchens in The St. Regis in Mumbai is definitely worth a visit! You can really find everything starting from when you walk in with a huge selection of desserts … … slowly moving over to fresh fruit … … a variety of bread and pastries … … a tea […]
