Teatro

I met some very nice people this Thursday through a long time friend of mine. Like myself they were fairly recent arrivals into Dubai. This led to lots of common ground for some quite amusing conversation as we exchanged "settling in" stories. I did feel a little sorry for one of the chaps who works for HSBC - so he ended up getting some teasing for their "special" customer service in the UAE.

After a few drinks we headed for dinner at Teatro which is situated on the third floor of the Rotana Towers. The restaurant has a very nice atmosphere and tasteful decor. The service was attentive but the most interesting thing was the menu. It was an interesting fusion of western food and eastern cooking styles - with a wide ranging menu.

I ordered a roasted lamb loin - cooked to perfection. I also sampled one of my friend's Ahi Tuna - again really well prepared. We did not opt for any wine but the list looked comprehensive.

Overall - 8.5/10 - great food if a little too "noveau" for me but I will certainly be back.

Oh God, there's always a "back in the good old days" type lurking about. ~Next you'll be saying you used to go to Sharjah for a great night out...
