The one place which doesn’t fit the property: Restaurant Oasis @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (10. March 2018)

While my overall experience at all the restaurants in The St. Regis was a positive one, the Oasis is not really on a comparable level. The Oasis is the pool restaurant and frankly not really appealing in terms of layout and setup. However, they have a small little spot a bit on the side looking […]

Great grill skills: The Grill Pit @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (9. March 2018)

Great grill skills: The Grill Pit @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (9. March 2018)

The Grill Pit is an intense place – noisy, loud but full of life. I started with a non-meaty starter. The “avocado salad (avocado, asparagus, sun dried tomato pesto, green peppers, preserved lemon dressing)” (85 AED) didn’t look too appealing at first as the salad leaves were way too big to be palatable. And the […]

The Julius Bär Gold Cup 2018 @ The St. Regis Polo Brunch @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (9. March 2018)

The St. Regis Al Habtoor Polo Resort stands for one thing – Polo! And I was lucky enough to experience this years Final round of the Julius Bär Gold Polo Cup (10th anniversary). And you get to sit outside in the sun and enjoy the game and the view. But inside there are the true […]

Amazingly relaxing atmosphere for shisha: Equestrian Lounge @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (8. March 2018)

When you return to a place after 6 weeks and the hotel staff still knows you, you get a truly special treatment. You feel more than comfortable and welcomed in the Lady Astor Suite. After having established oneself in the room, it was time to visit the Equestrian Lounge and go for that lovely “Double […]

Once in Juffair, never again: Buster’s NightClub (7. March 2018)

Since we have arrived in Bahrain, we always said that we needed to go to Juffair once and in my last evening, it was about time to do so. We ended up – by guidance of the cab driver – at Busters NightClub. A big wow – not really a positive one. The place was […]

The last shisha in Bahrain: Gallery 21 (7. March 2018)

My last shisha in Bahrain – in the place I keep returning to. The Gallery 21 still manages to leave a positive impression. The outside terrace is lovely and the service really pulls a leg to make sure that you have everything, especially when you are a regular. The place was unusually packed – probably […]

One of the better restaurants serving Italian food: Restaurant Café Italia (7. March 2018)

One of the better restaurants serving Italian food: Restaurant Café Italia (7. March 2018)

I haven’t found many places which serve decent Italian food – the Restaurant Café Italia is among the few which actually do. The “Burrata” was surprisingly fresh and, therefore, lovely in taste. The tomatoes were way fresher than expected and much more aromatic than I would ever have thought. The “Insalata di Verde (avocado, cucumber, […]

Good for the view, nothing else: Restaurant Alto @ Rotana Downtown (7. March 2018)

Good for the view, nothing else: Restaurant Alto @ Rotana Downtown (7. March 2018)

Colleagues of mine have mentioned Alto for its view – and frankly, that is all there is. The food is really not worth mentioning as it is frankly not outstanding at all. I went for the “chickpea hummus with crispy bread” (2.900 BHD) and “fried calamari, served with pickled chili mayonnaise” (4.800 BHD). The chickpea […]
