The famed British celebrity chef has decided to change up the menu. So if you haven’t been for a while, it’s high time you went back. Try the roast loin of lamb with caramelised shallots and foie gras tartlet complete with a helping of marjoram cream sauce or the pan-fried cod, creamy lemon, champ potatoes with lobster, tarragon and pistachio butter.
Make room for the mushrooms. Two new veggie-centric dishes include the wild mushroom, celeriac and hazelnut ‘mille feuilles’ and the Welsh rarebit truffled macaroni. With dishes as spectacular as these, you won’t miss the meat at all.
We love the bright décor here. Wooden floors and sleek furnishings such as a gorgeous central butterfly chandelier, complement splashes of vibrant yellow and lush greenery to transport you to a summer’s day in the countryside. When the weather permits, head to the terrace for unspoiled panoramic views of the Marina, twinkling after dark.
Everyone’s happy here! Six days a week, Rhodes W1 offers happy hour prices from 7.30pm-11.30pm, with drinks priced at just Dhs25. If you can’t stay for a full-on dinner, the range of gourmet mini-bites to share from the bar menu are arguably the best nibbles in town.
According to us, no one does afternoon tea better than Gary. The multi-tier menu includes sandwiches, warm savouries, homemade scones and crumpets and a delicious selection of cakes and pastries. You certainly won’t want dinner after this range of treats.
