We were invited to Address Hotel to visit the restaurant; Cabana. They have Churrasco (method of grilling meat) Nights – A Brazilian themed night every thursday from 7pm to 11pm. Knowing how beautiful and grand this hotel is, it was declared ‘date night’ 😛
Ambiance: The Ambiance. Oh My Goodness. December is literally the best time in Dubai to have outdoor barbecues, dinners and chill time – that’s exactly what we did. Cabana is a pool side restaurant with an absolutely gorgeous view and (in december) the best weather ever. The place was not dim at all and instead was quite lively and well lit to a limit.
Service: The servers just moving up and down the whole pool side serving food to people and not letting anyone wait too long for their food. Even with the grills, we were brought the cut meats to our tables seconds after we had the last bite. Service was very very efficient.
Price: 295AED (without alcohol) 385AED (with alcohol)
What we had;
Grills: So the concept is simple. They have a have a small circular token which has a green side (keep the meat coming) and the red side (stop! I’m done). So as long as you keep it on the green side they keep bring you various meats such as prawns, lamb chops, chicken legs, chicken, tenderloin, chicken breast wrapped in turkey bacon and so much more. So if you are like me who does not enjoy red meat, there are other options for you too.
Next, there was a salad section which has shrimp salad, smoked salmon, coleslaw, hummus, mouttabal and even individual veggies so that you can create your own salad. They also had different dressing like ranch, lime and more as extra toppings for your veggies.
Next, main-course – I was not a big fan of this so I kind of skipped it however I did taste more or less everything. They had rice, beef curry, stew and more in this section. But honestly I was way too full with the grills and salads itself.
Lastly, my favourite – desserts. The desserts had way too many options to choose from. Few of my favourites were, chocolate cake, tart, custard, fresh fruits, chocolate ball and coconut ball. They were absolutely delectable and beautifully presented as well.
Final Thought: I would visit Cabana again for its grills and view. Yes, the view.. that and the ambiance just made my day. It did get too chilly around 8 pm and that is when they offered us blue shawls to keep us warm.. how sweet! The live music and the Brazilian dancers were the cherry on the cake. So fun and lively – I cannot wait to go back!
