Best risotto I've ever tasted, perhaps one of the best meals this year overall - make sure you try the Bateel risotto when you visit. OK service, good I guess considering we went during the busiest time of the day.

I went back with colleague to the Cafe Bateel in the Financial Centre (DIFC). Decor is nice with black and green color (color of the brand). Nice et comfortable sofas.

Service is attentive and quick. Menu is inspired by italian cuisine, but you could have full breakfast the morning, or at lunch for example, you can choose for salads, pastries, cold or hot sandwichs, risotto, pastas, or some meats dishes.

Nice corb of various bread proposed with oïl and vinegar sauce coming from Italy.

This time I tried the scrambled eggs with toast and my colleagues choose the Rigatoni Al Arabiatta. Both plates nicely presented and excellent.

Prices are good for quality and cuisine. To recommand clearly

I have mixed feelings about my experience at Cafe Bateel. The restaurant is lovely and the food was great, but the service certainly left something to be desired. The food arrived quite quickly and they got our order right, but the lady who served us seemed quite grumpy throughout our meal. She didn't smile once the entire time, and when we asked her if she could please pack up the leftovers she looked ticked off to be quite frank. She didn't seem afraid to show her annoyance either. This is not the kind of attitude I would expect from such a nice restaurant!

it is possible that she was having a bad day, and we did enjoy the food very much, so I would still recommend this restaurant as a place to visit. Maybe you will have better luck and a happier waitress!
