Had a fun filled evening with friends, having wine and good food. The starters and the lamp chops for the main course were a delight. Service is quite pleasant.

Ciao restaurant is a small, quiet, intimate space nestled in a corner of the Sheraton, with a couple of windows looking out onto the all day restaurant and buffet. It is perfect for a dinner with the focus on good wine and wonderful Italian food. Our waiter spoke several languages, including some Italian, so we practiced our rudimentary Italian and the manager who is Italian also came to welcome us. All the food from the appetizers, to the lobster risotto, to the veal , gnocchi and pork roulade, were wonderful and very fresh. It is not inexpensive, but then welcome to Dubai. There are two for one coupons in the blue entertainer book to help ease the pain. If you order pastas or salad and refrain from alcohol, it will be much less expensive. For a relaxed evening with a friend or companion you will be in your own little world where you can enjoy some tranquility and savour delicious Italian food, a rare find in Dubai.

Most probably our ignorance, but went into the Sheraton for the Happy Hour. Wasn't readily shown that only selective drinks. Ie only 3 draught beers at 19 dirhams for a pint. However, if you naively order a pint of fosters instead of carling the cost goes to 38 dirham. Cost with vodka and coke 93 dirham - approx £17. Plus no change on the assumption presumably that the change would be the tip.
