Looking more like a restaurant in the Hamptons than Dubai, Splendido at the Ritz Carlton (part of the Jumeirah Beach Residence) is one of the most romantic restaurants in Dubai.
With a stunning alfresco dining area, complete with perfectly green grass, distant views of Dubai marina (including a Ferris wheel) and a beautiful patio area to enjoy your meal, you can’t get much more romantic than this. If you are unlucky enough to visit Dubai on one of its very few rainy days, the indoor restaurant is just as beautiful. Boasting old-school minimalist luxury you’ll find muted colours, coved pillars, subtle black and white artwork and pristine white table cloths.
Serving up authentic Italian cuisine, the kitchen delivers the likes of lasagne, ravioli di vitello, a selection of traditional pizzas and some bigger dishes like the zuppa di pesce and filetto di manzo. To finish your meal the dessert menu includes tiramisu, cannolo Siciliano and a selection of ice creams and sorbets.
To accompany you meal, take a look at the incredible wine and Champagne list filled with only the finest quality Champagnes and wines from a number of different regions in Italy.
Splendido is ideally located in the Dubai Marina area, so after dining guests can walk to the waterfront to take in the views of luxury boats and yachts going up and down the marina, or cross one of the bridges to head back to the main part of the city. As the Ritz Carlton is self-contained and has everything you could ever need, however, why would you even want to leave all these incredible luxuries?
As one of nine restaurants the Ritz Carlton has to offer, Splendido is definitely one to put on to your list of restaurants to visit during your stay.
