Dining experience at Frankie's

We headed down to Fairmont Bab Al Bahr in Abu Dhabi for a lovely dinner at Frankie’s Italian Restaurant. We were amazed at the striking and contemporary architecture of the hotel. As we entered the restaurant, the host welcomed us in no time and accommodated us to our table. The chic décor and great atmosphere was the perfect setup for a great dining experience, not to mention the live piano entertaining the diners throughout the night. The lighting was great in this upscale restaurant. There was a great selection of food on the menu.


For the starters, I opted for grilled scallops with pumpkin puree and poplar mushrooms. My guests had fried seafood in tartar sauce and warm eggplant and ricotta rolls. The scallops, presented in a shell on a bed of puree, were cooked well. The fried seafood platter was freshly cooked and not too salty. The eggplant and ricotta rolls blended well with the Parmesan and tomato basil.


For the main, I opted for veal shank ravioli while my guests picked beef tenderloin Rossini and quattro stagioni pizza. The ravioli was freshly cooked with leek cream and bitto shavings flavours bursting in your palate. The beef was juicy and flavours of truffle and red wine sauce made up a perfect dish. The pizza was served hot with mushroom, artichoke, black olive, basil and oregano.


The staff were really helpful and attentive. They organised the table every course as if we were starting all over again. While waiting for the desserts, the head chef Michelle checked on us. As I looked around, I noticed diners having a great time and enjoying their weekend.

We made sure we had room for some desserts to complete the evening. I opted for fruit salad and the Frankie’s signature cheesecake. My guests picked chocolate mousse with vanilla ice cream on top. Fruits were freshly sliced and the cheesecake was lovely and light. The chocolate mousse was served hot and tasted good, not too sweet. There was a great selection of drinks at this lovely Italian restaurant.


If you are looking for memorable evening, you won’t be disappointed here in Frankie’s. This restaurant makes for a destination evening with excellent service. With private dining available, Frankie’s is perfect for business lunches and dinners. I will be happy to come back anytime.
