I’m back here with yet another review and this time it’s just not a restaurant but a beautiful hotel lounge named as ‘The Lounge’ at Nassima Royal Hotel (Previously named as Radisson Royal ) located in Sheikh Zayed road.This high rise hotel is over looking the sheikh zayed road on front end and Jumeirah beach on the back end . Nassima Royal have been totally revamped and made it even more stunning and I could not even recognize the place which I had a staycation , three years back , when it was under Radisson Royal management. The Lounge has been converted into a beautiful cozy place with classy white interiors, carpets with artistic designs and stunningly decorated with cushioned single chairs paired with comfy sofas. We opted for one humongous high table with around 10 high chairs, since we were a larger group and we totally loved the seating area we opted for ourselves
Anyways,what I intend to say is, If you are looking a place to start your weekend, then this is the perfect place to be, since every thursday, The lounge hosts a special unlimited ‘Cheese & Wine Night’ for AED 119 that includes rich wines and a vast variety of cheese.
The food and ambience are amazing. We had the cheese platter made up of around 20
different soft, hard, aged, and mixed cheeses. It was delicious and the presentation looked like a work of art with figs, pistachios, dates, olives, and walnuts sprinkled throughout the cheese on the platter. The mouth-watering home-made bread and honey completed the cheese plate perfectly.
Some of the variety of cheese available were ( listing those ,which I could only recollect) , Blue cheese ( which contains natural amphetamines; yes , it was a new piece of info for me, since I was with some intellectual ladies though ), goat cheese ( that’s definitely not my taste ) parmesan cheese ( the kind of cheese which I love to have at point of time) cheddar cheese, Comté cheese (tasted like meat), edam cheese, and many more!
Apart from bread basket , fruits and cheese selection, bell pepper bruschettas, tomato bruschettas and mushroom bruschettas were also served along with some delicious and mouth watering margherita pizza’s
Since , I don’t ‘have a thing’ for wine, I was served with their special in house made thirst quencher which was refreshing and energizing. They do have wide variety of cocktails, mocktails and wine options which includes red and white wine
Altogether I totally LOVED this place, from the ambience to the variety of cheese they offered, to the service I can honestly say that it does not fail to disappoint, definitely recommend this place for anyone that’s looking for wine and cheese date.
