We arrived at 8:40pm for our 9:00 reservation. The decor was set up for a great NYE celebration. The special touches to the table were unique and festive. The decor still lent itself to the holiday season so the atmosphere was cozy and welcoming.
I can’t say enough about the amazing service. From the waiters to the manager, everyone was very hands on with all customers and that says a lot about the quality of the service for all customers.
Now let’s get to the food. My husband and I don’t drink alcohol, so they were kind enough to adjust our drink orders. There was a 5 course set menu for NYE and you can find the photo attached. For the starter I had the lobster tail and my husband had the endive salad. For the mains I chose the beef filet and my husband had the duck breast. I took photos of everything we had because I wanted to express thanks to Best Bites for this wonderful NYE surprise.
The amuse bouche was delicious. It was plated so beautifully as well. From there we had our starters. The dressings definitely had a kick to them but everything tasted amazing. The sorbet was beautifully served and the little biscotti type treat that was with it matched well with the sorbet. We appreciated that the servers asked when we were ready for each course instead of rushing us through our meal. It was a nice way to relax and enjoy our NYE. Our mains were delivered with as much flare as every other dish we were served. My husband loved the duck breast and risotto. The beef filet mignon was delicious but the highlight of the plate was the perfectly seasoned mushrooms and the truffle mashed potatoes. By the time desert came we were both full but still enjoyed a few bites.
We can’t wait to return to Dino’s and would highly recommend it to everyone. They have a great atmosphere for kids especially with the coloring activities on the table which we enjoyed as grown up “kids”. Thanks again to Best Bites and Happy New Year to everyone here in Abu Dhabi.
