After a few months of change, Five Palm Jumeirah has finally found its feet and is making its presence known. This restaurant located in the sprawling beachside venue is located in a pretty long dining hall, decorated with pretty pink tones. Molto Italiano. Floor-to-ceiling windows give diners views out onto the illuminated pool area.
The bread basket is huge and filled with a wide variety of traditional breads. While we wouldn’t usually go all out on the carbs, this is an impressive selection and we doubt even a real Italian bakery serves up as much choice.
The star of Quattro’s impressive show has to be the pasta. Fresh, homemade and perfectly cooked, it will turn even the most adamant pasta hater into a lover in just a few al dente bites. We recommend the courgette flower-laced tagliatelle pasta, which comes served in a small pan, swirled in a light cheese sauce.
Dessert is also a winner. Anyone who likes Bounty bars will love Quattro’s adult version. Pebble-shaped and covered in a thick layer of lush dark chocolate, the inside is sweet coconut with a berry jam middle. Yum!

Ravioli, packed with stringy mozzarella, smoked in clay pots. A taste sensation.
