It is that time of the year to flock to the gardens, decks or boulevard tables to share a bite in the breeze and soak in the gorgeous weather. I had the privilege to unwind at the most amazing Al Fresco dining experience. Raffles Gardens, in Raffles Dubai, is a chic paradise tucked away from the urban sprawl outside. It offers the perfect escape after work hours or if you choose to take a break from your retail therapy experience nextdoor.


Flanked by relaxing water features, tiled pathways  and 12 exclusive open-air cabanas, this space is a peaceful retreat. Built around a centerpiece glass dome, the Eye of Horus, the garden design takes inspiration from the four elements of life: Water, Air, Fire and Earth.


I arrived to discover a laid back scene. The courteous and knowledgeable servers treated me to a well-rounded Arabic themed menu which featured Arabic delicacies, a range of refreshing drinks to impress any dedicated cocktail connoisseur, and flavored shishas.  Sipping on the much acclaimed 'Raffles Singapore Sling' is the perfect way to while away a midweek evening here.


 Expect to leave this destination wowed by their delicious fare and make sure to tuck into their pick of delectable mezze's and mixed grill's. The menu offerings were well presented and revealed a brilliant display of colors and flavors. 


This urban oasis is also an ideal haven to host corporate conference, social events, garden parties and wedding ceremonies. The offerings, ambiance and service will have you coming back to this inviting outdoor space time and again.
