Business Traveller (India) - - TASTE -

The mo­saic pat­terned restau­rant has di­rect ac­cess to the East pool of Palazzo Ver­sace Dubai. The best seat, ac­cord­ing to me, is by the open doors that lead to the swim­ming pool. It doesn’t mat­ter if the weather is warm, the air con­di­tion­ing inside the restau­rant keeps you cool. You may want to save the dessert and cheese is­land for later. Cakes, pas­tries, choco­lates and tarts, and soft, hard and flavoured cheese — there is enough to make a de­bauched meal out of th­ese. Amongst th­ese is also a gluten-free spread that in­cludes madeleines, muffins and creamy cakes. Leave the best for the last, and in­stead, head to the waf­fles counter. They were ab­so­lutely crisp, and brought hot to our ta­ble. The but­ter sim­ply melted into the waf­fle. Com­potes and jams here make for good bread spreads too. I skipped the In­dian break­fast items al­to­gether — they didn’t quite ap­peal to me — and went straight for the eggs Bene­dict, along with small tast­ings of hash browns, dim sum, sausages and cold cuts. A hot cup of cap­puc­cino with co­coa pow­dered on top was a sweet end to this sa­ti­at­ing meal.

Open daily, break­fast tim­ings are 6:30am-10:30am; the buf­fet break­fast is priced at AED 150/`2,624;
