Who wouldn’t want to dine in a restaurant with a view? When I got an invite to review Amore Cafe, I didn’t know that it has such a spectacular view of Burj Khalifa. The fantastic view enhanced our dining experience at Amore Cafe.
Located at the beautiful Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard at Downtown Dubai, Amore Cafe offers Lebanese cuisine. They offer breakfast, lunch and dinner. Amore Cafe also offers Shisha.
Amore is a small cafe/restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. The decor of Amore is simple,classy and minimalistic. The seating is comfortable. The ceiling to floor windows adds brightness to the whole place. Loved the beautiful and colorful tableware and cutlery.
Sports enthusiasts can catch a match on the Plasma televisions. The atmosphere is relaxed and cosy. The menu is simple and straight to the point. While we were going through the menu, we were offered complimentary bowl of almonds, olives and beans.
We liked the fact that Amore Cafe ditched the printed menu in favor of iPad. While going through the drinks section of the menu, we were impressed by the sheer variety of drinks.
Amore’s drinks menu offers fresh juices, mocktails, soft drinks, smoothies, milkshakes and hot beverages like coffee and tea.
As it was a sunny afternoon, both hubby and I wanted to having something cold and refreshing. So we ordered the Mint Lemonade. It was cool, fresh and tasty. Just what we wanted to have on a sunny day.
Amore Cafe’s food menu consists of soups, salads, sides, starters, mains and desserts. They also have a separate bakery section where they offer traditional Lebanese desserts as well as a wide selection of international desserts.
Here’s a list of the dishes that I shared with my hubby.
We started off with the healthy Quinoa Salad that was mixed with sautéed veggies and cherry tomatoes, topped with feta cheese.
Spicy Potatoes that were cubed and tossed in chilies, garlic and coriander was amazing.
Falafels were a bit of a letdown. They were too dry and didn’t taste good.
Instead of having plain hummus, we opted for the Hummus with nuts. The regular hummus was smothered with ghee and paprika and topped with roasted nuts. The nuts added a crunchy factor to the hummus. We relished it.
Moutabel was freshly made and tasted great.
Mohammara was perfectly made and it was slightly spicy and flavorful.
Tzatziki is the yogurt and cucumber blended with mint and lemon juice. It is a cool dip. We found it a bit sour.
Labneh Balls submerged with olive oil and topped with nuts and rocca leaves was terrific.
We were served freshly baked bread to go along with our meal.
All their desserts are freshly made in-store and all of them looked very tempting. We felt like having them all. We tried 3 of them. 2 from their international selection and 1 from their traditional Lebanese dessert section.
Chocolate Eclairs was crisp and delicious.
Lemon Tart was delicious too. It had a pastry shell with lemon flavored filling. If the shell was a bit more softer, it would have been perfect. Nevertheless, it was yum.
Halawet El Jebn is a traditional dessert from Lebanon. This dessert was deliciously divine. A must-try at Amore Cafe. Though, we were full we still had an extra serving of this excellent dessert.
Overall, we had a good dining experience. A few dishes need to be improved. The service, the view and the atmosphere is great. The pricing is reasonable and affordable. Cold Mezze and desserts are recommended.
