Set within the luxury five-star Conrad Hotel in the centre of Dubai, Ballaro is an Italian restaurant that offers up a range of dining options to suit all occasions.
At breakfast time you will find an international set of dishes on offer with everything from muesli and omelettes to steak and eggs on the menu, as well as a range of Chinese dishes like traditional rice congee and a selection of dim sum. This globally influenced offering continues throughout the day when at lunchtime you’ll see a range of things to choose from at the buffet setup, which includes live cooking demonstrations by the hotel’s chefs as well as a large antipasti section for you to help yourself to.
In the evening the menu focuses in on the restaurant’s speciality, Italian food. The slant at this time of the day is towards a la carte dining. On the accomplished there are dishes like wild mushroom risotto, lobster linguini and veal Milanese, served with roast potatoes and a tomato and rocket salad. Try to leave enough room for pudding, as you’ll have the choice of a few different things, including honey cannoli with ricotta cream or a light strawberry panna cotta.
If you’re going to indulge fully while enjoying a meal at Ballaro Dubai, you’re going to want to raise a glass and enjoy a tipple too. Sommeliers are on hand to help with suggestions, while the selection of drinks on offer is far-reaching, with the menu making its way from softs and fresh juices to beers, wines and Champagnes. For something a little fruitier, there is also a cocktail and mocktail menu.
With both indoor and outdoor seating, you can choose to enjoy the view of the serene swimming pool, complete with water features, during the day or to relax in the warm and ambient restaurant setting in the evening.
