LaLuz Restaurant and Bar Epitomizes Fine Dining in Dubai
December 18, 2016
When visiting Dubai the standard of service, decor and dining is of the highest level, the clients seem to have a particularly exacting degree of foodie knowledge, creating competitive restaurant choice and ensuring complete dining satisfaction.
LaLuz is no exception, but in fact is sort of is! Let me explain, LaLuz presents a refreshingly innovative Mediterranean cuisine, in a sumptuous, glamorous and sophisticated surrounding, designed by Tarruella Trench and Mario Eskenazi, situated in the financial district at the Four Seasons Hotel.
Created by Grupo Tragaluz, LaLuz covers a huge area, 10,000 sq ft, it also features a separate bar and lounge and is one of the city’s largest upscale restaurant.
Barcelona-born chef, Alain Devahive gives life to the gastronomic creations. Alain hopes to deliver his international experience and exploratory gastronomy to the customers of LaLuz, and he doesn’t disappoint.
The gastronomic feast we were presented with was probably one of the most exquisitely delicious experiences in fine dining we’ve ever experienced. We had a fabulous selection of the chefs signature dishes. Our dishes included – Tomato tartar with aromatics, Beef carpaccio, Foie gras and truffle vinaigrette, King crab salad with mushrooms, apple and creamy vinaigrette, Roasted meat canelon with foie-gras, Mediterranean red prawn and scorpion fish “Caldereta”. We devoured every single morsel, the King Crab Salad was outrageously divine, mouth-wateringly teasing the tastebuds into submission, asking for more! The ‘Calderetta” was fresh and tasty, setting bombs off on your tongue with an infusion of taste sensations, superb.
This was a meal we did not want to end, but it didn’t need to, we enjoyed a couple of cocktails at the bar following our meal. LaLuz have a flavourful and colourful palette of cocktails inspired by intriguing combinations yet being forever mindful of a Mediterranean heritage, as well as an extensive wine list, mainly from Spain and Catalunya areas.
We indulged in a variety of cocktails including a LaLuz Sour, Green Fairy and Pink Cloud, all created by the resident Mixologist. We settled ourselves into a romantic area of the lounge and much to our surprise and delight we were entertained by a most beautiful Spanish dancer and guitarist, the atmosphere was buzzing and we had a fun night.
The Bar and Lounge offer an attractive atmosphere, where you can have informal meetings between hours, an appetizer and a drink before dinner and maybe close the night in one of the top hotspots of Dubai.
The clientele were a young and glamorous set, all enjoying each others company, the ambience was fun, yet romantic, with soft lighting and lavish surroundings.
We will definitely be making a return visit on our return to Dubai.
Opening Hours 12:00 PM to 03:00 AM
