Venetian Village, The Ritz. Al Maqta.
Last night we fell in love with Olives 😍 At the Venetian Village, they serve delicious food that somehow strikes the balance between fancy and unpretentious - helped by the fact that I could have pizza and chips whilst Nathan was spoilt with all manner of delicious options.
The drinks were amazing (esp their raspberry mocktail - oh my!) and everything we ordered was a winner. Nathan especially enjoyed the veal agnolotti (reason enough for us to return) and I was 100% sold on my pizza-style flatbread. The steaks were tasty and we thought reasonably priced considering how expensive they normally are in Abu Dhabi.
As is sit here now, about to tuck into a made-at-home dinner, I can't help but wish I were back there munching on that delicious bread starter!!
Our server was so lovely and helped make the night special. She knew the menu inside out and had a genuine smile on her face the whole night.
So nice not to have to go all the way into town too - we'll be back 😁
