Expat Life in Dubai

Luciano’s at Habtoor Grand Resort & Spa

April 9, 2012

We were supposed to have a light dinner at Salamar at Habtoor Grand but they have transferred its location and we really didn’t like the new set-up. Talk about being a spoiled brat eh? 🙂 I then rummaged thru the hundreds of Entertainer vouchers that I have and found one for Luciano’s at the same resort so we had dinner there instead. It’s actually a blessing in disguise since the Italian restaurant did not disappoint us. It was running full for a Thursday night even if it was already 10 in the evening and we were lucky enough that a table by the pool just got vacated by a couple on their first date (me and sticking my nose where it doesn’t belong :)). The restaurant had live lobsters on their menu and I can see those poor creatures swimming inside a huge aquarium of the restaurant. I’m a seafood addict yes but I wasn’t really up for a lobster that night so I ordered linguine ai frutti di mare instead.

It was seriously amazing with a generous portion of seafood (mussels, clams, shrimps and squid). It was served really hot so we had to wait for quite some time to cool it down. They also have an extensive choice of red and white wines, unfortunately I don’t drink anymore otherwise I would’ve ordered a white wine for myself. It’s a must-try for all you Italian food lovers, the ambiance is kinda romantic too as it was flanked by mostly couples on a date. 🙂

I used my Entertainer voucher and got a discount of AED95. Yay! 🙂
