i sailed from dubai on celebrity, and went on to goa and mumbai and really really loved it. an excellent croswd on board and the food very good. celebirty gave me a terrific deal, and as a solo traveller manage to get ocean view with balconey. the cabin attendant first class, as was the food and entertainment. i have sailed with celebrity many times and far prefer it to royhal caribbean. much, much nicer, and in this case, much much cheaper. tje staff cannot do enough for you, and there is always plenty of entertainment. i took two shore trips, one to goa, o k i have been spoilt, i have lived in ajustralia, so the voa beach didnt impress me one b it, but i enjoyed the trip to the spice farm. mumbai, very western. took a shore trip and was not at all impressed with it, i should have taken the celerity trip. i was also let down in the middle east, a shore trip that went without me, the same firm, and i would never use them again. celebrityh is moreexpensive, ut your are guaranteed a first class time, and the bus would never go without you.
have a good trip

Very romantic. Attentive service. Really inventive tasty, clever food. Only people in the know, go here. Rarely advertised, but definitely at the top of the list for a night out with the missus. The hotel is a gem and the restaurant is a jewel. Menu degustation is terrific value for money, and unlike many Dubai Top Spots, I did not feel ripped off.

On the HB package at O&O with two 18yr olds so nearly didn’t book as thought might not be their thing but boys said their rib eye steak was the best especially the sauce which accompanied it. All ordered off the Table D’Hote menu as good 5-6 choices in each. Amuse bouche served before 4 different types of bread. All meals presented beautifully. Asparagus risotto perfect! 3 of us had chocolate soufflé for dessert which was great. Mille feuille superbly presented. Beautiful ornate room overlooking the Palace gardens. Quiet and formal atmosphere but still lovely. Glad we changed our mind!

This restaurant was a favourite haunt of mine, a lifetime ago, and I have literally not set foot in it in at least a decade. I heard it had been refurbished so as it is Ramadan thought it worthwhile to try out.

A new French manager introduced himself, fresh from Cannes and the world, recognised he talked too much and took himself off after a pleasant discussion.

An impressive menu indeed, lots of variety which did pose the question could they do everything that well, so, a wide range of choice, lets see.

Starters for us varied from the classic pan fried Foie Gras, through Langoustine risotto to the odd Lobster and Mozzarella mix. The Foie Gras was decent and accompanied nicely by candied delicacies. The portion could have been a little more generous I felt. The risotto was tasty and well cooked, again, one Langoustine tail could have been a little more generous. The Mozzarella turned out to be Burrata, however, still worked well and was very reasonable.

At this point, one of the things that we noticed is the service needs to be a little more on point for a fine dining restaurant. There were times when there was noone on the floor at all. We found ourselves repeating requests, chasing up moire wine, things a restaurant, there to make money too, should be all over. It wasnt especially bad service, just not quite good enough.

Mains, I had the incredibly tasty Spagettini with jumbo prawns, the pasta coated very pleasantly in a rich seafood broth. The Turbot whilst a little small and lonely on the plate was decent, unfortunately the sides appeared towards the end of my friends dining which was a little irritating. The veal was an interesting presentation, more likened to a prime piece of fillet, was acceptable though.

We had a couple of bottles of a very reasonable Chianti Riserva, and the pricing was equally reasonable for Dubai too at USD 170 each.

Dessert was a little disappointing, the Tart Tartin was a bit of a cheat being mostly pastry and sugar so the crisp tartiness was there, very little fruit. The Souffle though was nicely presented and tasty apparently, and our third guest had cheese, which was good.

All up, not bad, some room for improvement and I will be back to see if they do!
