It’s always a bonus to enjoy evening with great dining experience and at the same time loving the al fresco athmosphere overlooking the Souk’s busy promenade and water fountains.
Urbano restaurant is just one of the excellent dining outlets at the at the heart of the prestigious Downtown Burj Khalifa and has proven to be an outstanding success.
Situated in the Souk Al Bahar, Urbano Caffe incorporates modern Italian design with the atmosphere of a traditional 1950’s Milan café.
The contemporary Italian style decor has an eclectic mix of wood and marble which complement beautifully with their authentic cuisine.
We arrived 15 minutes late, so when we asked the receptionist about our reservation she said that she already gave our table because she thought that we will not come. Hubby asked her in a calmly tone why she did not call us first to reconfirmed the booking. And she just said ” eh bat kayo nalate ayan binigay ko na “. Naku the nerve talaga ni kabayan!
Luckily the manager intervene and said if it’s ok to just wait for a few minutes and she will just check the availability of the other table. Then she came with us with apologetic face and ushered us to our table. Mind you, si kabayan nakaismid pa din.Taas ng ilong! Hay inisip ko na lang pagod si ate.
Not to spoil the date we just relax and soaked up our mood with subdued lightning and perfectly pitched background music of the dancing fountain.
With so many delighted dishes to choose from, I am having a hard time choosing.The problem for me is always having to decide whether to go for an old favorite or try something new. Eventually after memorizing the menu..haha I settled for the Chargrilled prime rib eye, salsa verde, rocket salad and potato fries. Very afraid lang magkamali..hahaha
While hubby chose the Roasted sea bass with lemon, anchovy and caper stuffing. This is superb and must be surely be one of the most popular dishes. The sea bass was delicately cooked to perfection;it flaked easily onto the fork and tasted wonderful.
Our visit will not be complete without trying their pizza so we devoured to Diavola. It is thin crust pizza with spicy pepperoni, chopped chipotle chilli and mozzarella cheese.
Having totally indulged, we have no room for dessert although we have heard rumours that they are also wonderful. Judging by the presentations and displayed on their sweet corner.
