La Terrazzo is a new outdoor terrace that opened about 2 weeks ago in Hotel Ibis, Salmiyah. I first noticed it while driving on gulf road and went for a quick lunch to try it out. It was freeeezing up there that day and I couldn’t stay for long, they had tents but I didn’t like it inside.
I Had the pesto pasta and it was delish. My sister had tomato sauce pasta and said it was average. The menu is the same of Olivo‘s, the indoor restaurant, and I like its mix’n’match style. You get to create your own meal from a list of ingredients. They serve salads, soups, sandwiches, appetizers, pasta, grills, a couple of vegetarian choices, and desserts.
Shisha is available too in case you’re into that.
The view is breath taking, which usually automatically gets a restaurant on my favorites list. But in this case the poor furniture/design prevents that from happening. I wish they would upgrade their tables and make the vast area a little cozier.
I would still go back though.. For the pesto pasta and the view.
Update: Okay forget what I just said, went back last night and the pesto pasta was below average.
