Madinat Jumeirah, the Arabian Resort of Dubai, has relaunched Shimmers to offer casual, toes in the sand atmosphere during the day, and a chic yet relaxed dining setting at night. The menu comprises of fresh Mediterranean cuisine by Greek Chef Yiannis Katsikas.
Shimmers, on the shores of the Arabian Gulf, has the feel and style of an authentic Greek Tavern – much closer than a plane ride to Mykonos! Inspired by his mother’s recipes, the new Chef’s menu offers a true taste of the Mediterranean.
For starters enjoy Tyrokaftrei, a traditional spicy feta cheese dip served with freshly baked pita bread; zucchini kefta or a taste of the sea with tender chargrilled octopus. Dishes from the garden include slow roasted beetroot salad and the “real” Greek salad. Delicious mains include lamb chops and briam - a delicious Greek vegetable bake, straight from the oven.
Guests can admire remarkable views of Burj Al Arab Jumeirah with a soothing atmosphere complemented by lounge music, a refreshing sea breeze and sunset views.
A casual lunch or dinner can be enjoyed either from the main area or guests can sink into the comfortable bean bag cushions and dine from low tables. Shimmers at Jumeirah Mina A’Salam is open daily for lunch from 12 – 5 pm, for dinner from 7 – 11:30pm and the lounge is open from 12 pm - 1:30 am.
