You can embark on this stunner of a culinary journey with flavour-packed sharing starters such as Dibba Bay oysters served with mignonette, lemon, or al naturale or relish the miso-marinated avocado in guacamole style. If you choose to stay seaside, specials such as crispy golden-fried calamari with aioli mayo and mint await, as do plates of Roberto’s premium seafood salad, in which prawns, mussels, clams, and octopus make appearances with potatoes and taggiasca olives in salmoriglio dressing. If your palate isn’t seeking something as elaborate yet, you can savour a crunchy cracker featuring Mediterranean yellowfin tuna tartare, or the creamy, toasted lobster Canadian bun among several other splendid marine marvels like the opulent Oscietra Caviar or Beluga Caviar.

Make sure to leave enough room for mains while you’re busy feasting amid a combination of classic Italian elements, as they promise to blow you away. You can choose from the Mediterranean seabass marinated in miso paste and orange, served with crispy tempura broccolini and a flavorful sesame sauce or juicy cubes of grilled beef rib-eye served with sautéed spring onions and crispy polenta chips.

Your voyage through Italia prepares for descent amid an impressive selection of Italian desserts, in the ‘buffet di dolci’ as you soak in the beats of Roberto’s resident DJ, in what promises to be a stunning Saturday afternoon for you and your party. With sophistication, luxury and indulgent effervescence ringing through the air at this brunch experience, come by when you’re ready to treat yourself and leave with flavours, memories and an experience like none other.
