My review of Aioli – this a newly opened restaurant in Dubai offering a variety of aioli flavours with the food. If you are an aioli fanatic like I am, you will love this place. Mediterranean places are always easy for me to enjoy as the food are always so flavourful, and so authentic.
The shrimps with garlic herbs was interesting as I thought that it would come as a stir fried fish, but was actually tossed with the sauce. The sauce was tasty but the shrimp did not absorb some of the flavours.
The calamari was nice and crispy. The original aioli sauce that came with it was a great fit and I prefer this now over the regular tartar or taziki sauce. The portion of this dish was huge for a starter which was wonderful.
I was obsessing over the cheesy spinach soup here. The spinach flavours were strong and the soup was thick. The cheese was not overpowering the flavours of the spinach which was a good thing.
I recommend the spaghetti with seafood for everyone as there was so much seafood in it! Usually, I would be disappointed with pasta dishes as it would lack a lot of the protein. This was definitely not a problem here.
My favourite pizza that I had tonight would be the salmone pizza. I always tell people how much I love smoked salmon, and I can’t get enough of it. This pizza was topped with delicious and perfectly seasoned smoked salmon. I love how the colours of the arugula brought life to this pizza. Just perfect.
This restaurant deserves a rating of 4.5/5.
I ordered the shrimps with garlic herbs for 35DHS, calamari for 32DHS, cheesy spinach soup for 36DHS, spaghetti with seafood for 61DHS, aioli seafood pizza for 55DHS, and the salmone pizza for 55DHS.
The pricing of the dishes here are affordable and great for the portion sizes.
The service was excellent here, especially with one of the servers greeting us right outside of the entrance. The manager was very friendly and kept us happy the whole time. The food and beverages came out in a fast to our table.
The ambience of this restaurant is very warm and inviting with an Italian feel to it in every corner. The decor was beautiful and you can find this restaurant on the outside of the Radisson Blu Marina Residences.
