Dinner with a lazy view ..The Ranches Restaurant at Arabian Ranches

With its dark wooden interiors and dim lighting, the inside seating area has a bistro-like feel to it. It was much too lovely an evening not to dine Al Fresco though, so we headed outside. I must admit the gorgeous flood lit views of the golf course created an amazing picturesque backdrop. We were served by a waiter called Siva who was quite friendly, patient through my indecision and efficient. the complimentary bread basket smacked of the makings of freshly baked bread, the rolls were quite warm and soft. Loved it


I had the Watermelon juice to drink, I found it a tad bland and watery, It was disappointing sadly.


My friend had a Guinness to drink..well no complaints there.


To eat, I ordered the grilled salmon, with mash potatoes, sauteed vegetables. There are various sauces you can choose from, I choose the black pepper. 1

My friend ordered a well done sirloin steak, fries and a salad.


I loved the presentation of the food, very appealing to the eye. The salmon was grilled perfectly, however it could have been a tad juicier, the flavour didn’t pop that much for me but tasty non the less.  The mash potatoes were perfectly done, not too creamy or buttery just the right balance. Loved the accompanying black pepper sauce. My friend finally let me have a stab at his steak which he was jealously guarding :). He was enjoying it thoroughly but I found it a bit chewy and dry. The fries were amazing though.

Dessert has to be my highlight, I had a spoonful of the creme Brule. This has to be one of the most delicious ones I’ve had in Dubai. The vanilla came through very nicely and the texture not as soggy as I am used to lol. The Tiramisu was good except the coffee flavour was a bit overpowering. The banana cake was simply fluffy, light and delicious. I found the service good and the ambience really lovely. I will go back to try the pork ribs that I saw on the menu, I hear they are a must try.
