Turtle Bay, Saadiyat Rotana
Been wanting to try this restaurant for ages! So what better excuse than the 50% off food BB discount 😅 (ends Sept 15th)
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our meal, the food, drinks and service were top notch - would definitely recommend Turtle Bay for a nice meal or special occasion as it ticked all the boxes for us. Special shout-out to our server Deepak, and our bartender Amir who were both brilliant all evening.
- To start we ordered the cauliflower popcorn, which was absolutely delish! My friend who claimed he didn't like cauliflower even ended up eating well more than his 'I'll just try one piece' much to my dismay 😅 There was also complimentary bread and mushroom paté. - For mains we had the Prawn and Scallop Ceviche with coconut base which was deliciously fresh. We also had the sea bass with the recommended lemon-parsley butter sauce which was pan seared to perfection with a lovely crispy bottom. The side of mash was super creamy. Just to add I'm a fussy seafood eater, and I enjoyed every bite of both meals. - Desert we had the raspberry and red velvet chocolate fondant which melted in the mouth.
Thanks to BB for the discount - but we loved it so much we wouldn't have been disappointed even paying full price for a special meal! Although we are small eaters and did share everything, so it may end up being more expensive for others.
I definitely want to go back when the weather is nicer to try the rooftop bar ☺️ and have the Cauli popcorn again!
They also had a Summer Cooler drink deal on 3 for 99AED, the drinks were strong and I loved our frozen daquris! (Served with paper straws 🐢)
N.B. Turtle Bay's opening times are very specific, so best to check to make sure you're not disappointed
