Expect a classy yet understated old school charm. This is the first foray into the UAE’s culinary scene for the multi-Michelin award winning chef, and while it might be fine dining, oversized chairs are installed for leisurely dining, for more of an experience than just a meal.

Each dish is a work of art. Our personal favourite is the citrus marinated Amberjack with avocado cream, which looks like a scene from The Little Mermaid. It’s actually so beautiful, you might not want to eat it!

Don’t leave without trying Chef Heinz’ signature dish. The Fagotelli Carbonara is a dish of miniature ravioli parcels which literally explode in your mouth with the creamiest cheese sauce filling.  

Choose a fuss-free, comforting main. The lamb rack with a green olive crust and veggies from the Med is a simple, yet winning way to go.

Request a rest before perusing the dessert menu. Being too full won’t have the same effect as someone who leaves room, and can genuinely appreciate one of the five options on offer. Try the Raspberry 1.1 which features 10 different layers of the fruit, from the fresh berry itself, to sorbet, cake, jelly, mousse, cookie and everything in between. Chocolate lovers should try the rock of milk chocolate mousse with Nutella powder and coconut sorbet.
