So here I am with yet another exciting experience with the Afternoon Tea at Ossiano Underwater Restaurant, Atlantis – The Palm.
Atlantis is yet another exciting tourist attraction in Dubai. The iconic building is a beautiful architecture design in itself. It accommodates guests in hotel rooms, 23 premium and fine dining restaurants, outlets, a gym, a spa, a saloon and waterpark along with kids club and a night club.
Ossiano Underwater Restaurant is a premium dining award-winning seafood restaurant, with a marvellous view of the Ambassador Lagoons right from the table. Welcoming and romantic setting of the restaurant leaves you breathless. Apart from fine dining, the restaurant offers Afternoon Tea from 2pm to 4pm every Saturday.
We, (I mean myself and my sister) got the opportunity to enjoy the Afternoon Tea when Glambox Middle East in one of their monthly boxes sent Ossiano complimentary voucher to its subscribers. Oh, if you were thinking what is Glambox? This is a quarterly, six months or yearly subscription where you get to discover 4 mini latest products from makeup, skin care, hair products as well as fragrances, with some really good discount and free vouchers to enjoy as well. You also earn points when completing their surveys.
We planned the afternoon and decided to take our boys along so they can enjoy with us. I also came to know the kids can access to the Kids Club while the adults enjoy their sip of tea. Prior reservation is required and I did book table for us ahead.
The ambiance of the restaurant is simply amazing with a giant aquarium with 65,000 marine animals and chandeliers on the roof which brightens the whole area well. You get to the restaurant using the stair case coming down. The kids were amazed seeing the fishes and the divers moving around. Well you can have a personalised message delivered to your loved ones through the divers while you are dinning. A perfect dinner date option for seafood lovers.
For the afternoon tea we were served with serving of caviar (fish –eggs) with Blinis (pan-cake), Crème Fraiche, and Cornichons (cucumber pickle). This is followed by a delicious finger sandwiches from Artic King Crab with Avocado, Mushroom, Asparagus and Gruyere Profiterole, Lobster Éclairs, Smoked Salmon, Cream Cheese and Saffron Pancake and Roast Chicken Caesar and Seaweed Baguette.
How can an afternoon tea be completed without the sweet treat? Hence, a big delicious tray served with Opera Cake, Lollipop Carrot Cake, Linzer Tart Caramelized Apple Cake and Vanilla Mille Feuille which are accompanied by scones with old-style jams and rich thickened cream. Along that are a variety of petit fours including white and dark chocolate Pralines, chocolate dipped Dates and homemade Cookies. To end the experience sweeter, indulge in their Chocolate Financier, Chocolate Cup Cake and Macaroons (sounds yummy, they were yummier). Accompanied by a vast selection of specialty teas all set to compliment atmosphere and mouth-watering treats.
The Afternoon Tea can be enjoyed for AED. 295/- per person.
Overall experience was fabulous, thanks to Glambox Middle East and Ossiano.
That’s all for now…. Thank you for reading!
