Mazi, St Regis Saadiyat Island Resort

Greek sharing style

Extra info: Has a GF menu, very vege friendly. Open for lunch and dinner Natalie has been to Mazi four times already, taken the Greek-eating Christodoulides clan (food not people😜) and various others and raved every time. Last week, it was my turn. And I was, quite honestly, wowed. She was fairly smug and there were many ‘uh huh, told ya’s 😆 Mazi means together in Greek so ... we shared! There’s something for everyone. We started with a selection of jars, the grilled aubergine with soy and thyme honey, mopped up with olive bread was sublime. This was swiftly followed with a sea bream tartare with a squid ink rice puff - like everything here, it looked pretty and tasted divine. I could go on, waxing lyrical about every dish, because they were all good, but a few really stood out for me. The courgette ‘cakes’ accompanied by a cucumber and mint dip, were absolutely delicious. And the deep fried feta ‘bombs’ with lemon marmalade and caper meringue were indescribably excellent. The grilled octopus was delectably tender and tasty. We finished with the almost unpronounceable Galaktoboureko - an absolute princess of a dessert - with filo surrounding custard. Nat didn’t actually get any of that (it was really really really good Nat😂) It’s not overly expensive and there was plenty of food in each serving. It was just glorious to sit outside, in an olive grove (pretty much!) and feast on this relaxed yet outstanding food. Will I be back? Yes and I’ll be bringing friends! I highly recommend you consider it for NYE for a relaxed good time. The cost is AED 850 net per person including a sharing Greek menu with unlimited selected Greek beverages - wines, spirits, cocktailsAED 195 per child.
