Al Manzil restaurant at Al Raha Beach Hotel has that perfect daycation spot.
Al Manzil restaurant is located at Al Raha Beach Hotel which has the most beautiful beachfront and pool access. We wanted to try the new Keto meal at Al Manzil restaurant, Al Raha Beach Hotel and also have a relaxing afternoon with the kids, taking advantage of their beach and pool access.
The idea of keto meal is for you to get more calories from protein and good fat and less from carbohydrates. The keto meal has also become popular in the UAE, which is evident by the number of places which have opened up to fulfil a Keto diet.
We reached Al Manzil restaurant, Al Raha Beach Hotel around 1.00 pm to experience Executive Chef – Lal Tamang’s carefully curated keto meal and specially selected dishes with the objective one enjoys healthy food with a better taste.
We’ve been at Al Manzil restaurant for their famous Friday BBQ lunch and with confidence we could say the hospitality and food would be beyond great. Though I’m personally not a fan for keto food, we decided to try it out for an experience and see the difference.
Our server Komang brought in our appetizer Quinoa kale and avocado salad which comprised of fresh redcurrants, roasted pine nuts, green apple, pomelo pulp, sweet corn, fennel, avocado, lemon olive. We were surprised this had 2.5 g fat and 235 calories. We skipped the keto meal for our kids and ordered chicken nuggets with fries and pasta penne which the kids loved with the creamy sauce.
While we got started with the appetizer, we informed the team to prepare the main course which was hammour baked in oven paper with baby fennel and dill that had 12 g fat and 249 calories. While we were having our main course, I had in mind to order another dish as I thought the serving wouldn’t be sufficient, however I was proven wrong and our bellies we completely full. You can also opt for chicken or angus beef upon request.
We decided to take a break before the dessert arrived and headed outdoor which had the pool and beach access. Though it was kinda breezy, it was a perfect afternoon to take a dip in the water and relax by the pool side. Our kids too were super excited to enjoy their afternoon by the pool.
For those who intend to plan their next visit here, the beach and pool access is free when you spend AED 150 towards food and beverages of your choice on weekdays or AED 210 on weekends from 8.00 am until 7.00 pm. Its a complete steal deal.
It was now 4.30 pm and after enjoying ourselves outdoors, we decided to get our desserts which was a chocolate and orange pudding served with fresh berries. This dessert was different, not so sweet yet tempting, as the combination of citrus fruit and berries were mind blowing and went well with the chocolate and we asked them for another serving.
We ended our day with a cappuccino for our drive back to the city. Overall the place and food was great and would be definitely back to have another afternoon to ourselves.
We all require a well deserved break, and we recommend you spend the afternoon at Al Manzil restaurant, Al Raha Beach Hotel.
