Many health food cafes make the mistake of focusing on the nutritional content of dishes, while neglecting flavour. Not so, at Eat Well restaurant Dubai. This health food restaurant has a menu that is packed full of tasty, flavorsome dishes, which also pack a punch in terms of nutritional value. All dishes on the menu are gluten-free, and many are dairy free too. Although many options on the menu are suitable for vegans and vegetarians, there is still plenty available for carnivores and pescatarians too
What’s the food like?
There’s three menus on offer if you visit for lunch or dinner (and a separate breakfast menu available in the mornings). There’s the a la carte, specials board and vegan-only menu to pick from. For starter, BBC Good Food Middle East tried the vegan caprese (a vegan mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, basil leaves, Rocca oil and a balsamic glaze). The dish was packed full of fresh Italian flavours, and made for a delicious, realistic substitute to the traditional dairy alternative. For mains, the paleo steak and salad dish (with alcohol free red wine reduction), the vegan spinach and coconut yoghurt risotto and the salmon on greens dish are all worth a try. BBC Good Food Middle East tried the oven baked seabass with beetroot, lentils, kale and basil pesto. The fish was incredible fresh, and cooked to perfection. For dessert there’s a range of delectable guilt-free treats available, including moreish vegan chocolate volcano, served with strawberry sauce and chocolate frosting and the tasty orange panacotta, made with almond milk, coconut cream, maple syrup and fresh oranges. The restaurant has an impressive range of teas, and flavoured water. The detox water is delicious and refreshing as are the homebrewed herbal teas (we tried the delicious refreshing fresh spearmint tea).
How was the service?
The service is impeccable at Eat Well. Manager Reji heads up the team, and makes every diner feel welcome at the restaurant. When BBC Good Food Middle East visited, the drinks and food order were both taken quickly, and food was delivered promptly – perfect for both a business lunch or a lazier laidback weekend meal.
What’s the atmosphere like?
The restaurant is situated on the first floor of the Dubai Herbal and Treatment Centre. Although there is no outdoor area to eat, the restaurant has floor-to-ceiling windows with the Downtown Dubai skyline in the distance. The restaurant is laidback, and casual with an open window into the kitchen. When BBC Good Food Middle East visited, the restaurant was busy with a mix of crowds taking advantage of the great business lunch deal (two courses for AED 70pp) and gym-goers popping by for a post workout healthy meal.
Details: weekly deals available including a two-course business lunch (AED 70pp) each weekday. For more information, visit Eat Well. If you enjoyed this story you may like this article on Eat Well’s fantastic new delivery service.
