My review of Dusty’s – A modern European restaurant to enjoy some delicious food. This restaurant offers a variety of dishes along with unique tasty cocktails to enjoy on a business lunch or just a casual night out.
The starters that I had were flavourful, more so for the lobster tacos. These tacos were unique and I loved the lobster chunks in the hard corn shell. However, it was unfortunate how I did not taste much of the mango flavours. The avocado dip was on the side, so that added a positive to the tacos. The chicken satay skewers were a little dry for my liking and the peanut sauce did not really add too much to it.
My favourite of the night was the black cod! This dish was marinated beautifully, and the presentation was appealing. The flavours were on point for the caramelized miso marinate. The meat was just falling off the bones, and it was so juicy!
The lobster mac and cheese was what I expected. I always love the idea of mac and cheese for comfort food, and this place delivered a one of a kind twist to it. Adding lobster to it, just made it more sophisticated and it was definitely creamy and delicious.
Finally, the candy station dessert completed my dinner perfectly as there was almost all of my favourites all on one platter! I loved the mini chocolate fondue and how I was able to dip my marshmallows in it, it was my inner child’s dream! The cake pops were moist and not too sweet, which is a good thing. The macaroons were made beautifully with the outer shell just perfect and the filling satisfied my sweet tooth!
This restaurant deserves a rating of 4.5/5.
I ordered lobster tacos for 85DHS, chicken satay skewers for 65DHS, black cod for 165DHS, the lobster mac & cheese for 59DHS, and the candy station dessert for 80DHS. Drinks – Shiraz red wine for 55DHS, radzmatazz for 55DHS.
The pricing here is perfect for the cuisine served here.
The service was outstanding as the hostess greeted us with a huge smile, and the server for our table was prompt at getting our orders, and making sure our waters were filled each time.
Finally, the ambience of this restaurant is modern and the atmosphere is so energetic. The restaurant offers both indoor seating and a terrace seating, which we chose. The terrace has a beautiful surrounding of the pond. There was a classic songs theme during the night we went, and it was great to hear songs played by a live DJ, bringing back memories.
