First look: AIZA at Dubai’s The Pointe
Get ready to check out a brand-new restaurant in the new year, as a new Greek-Mediterranean restaurant is opening at The Pointe.
AIZA is opening tomorrow (Thursday December 31) and will offer superb views of The Palm Fountain, along with tasty dishes.
Food is inspired by Cyclades Islands in the Aegean Sea, and it’s all kicking off with A Night at the Cyclades on New Year’s Eve. Get ready for tastes from Santorini, Paros, Milos, Mykonos and beyond.
The menu stars Greek cheeses, Kalamata olives, Mediterranean seafood, souvlaki, baklava and orange pie.
The home-grown concept is licensed and comes from The Social Group, which is also behind Saya Cafe in Dubai.
We’re promised generously-portioned, sharing-style dishes, warm and welcoming Greek hospitality, as well as front row seats to the world’s largest fountain. Shisha will also be served. Décor is inspired by ancient Greece, with a central chandelier tree and exposed stonework.
On New Year’s Eve it all starts at 8.30pm you can get a set menu for Dhs550 (food only), and there will be tunes from Greek DJ Thodoris Kokkalis. And, as is Greek tradition, diners will be given a plate to smash to welcome in the New Year.
Dishes on the menu include seabream marinated with citrus dressing, chicken souvlaki with spicy tzatziki as well as Greek-style lobster pasta, rib-eye, lamb shank, and loads of desserts.
Fancy a Greek escape this New Year? You know where to go.
Open daily 1pm-2am from Jan 1. Open from 6pm on Thu Dec 31. The Pointe, Palm Jumeirah (04 575 5097).
