I finally went and checked out the newly opened Jumeirah Messilah Beach hotel last night. And after having a walk around the place my friend and I decided to have dinner at Pepper steakhouse, one of the hotel’s 4 restaurants.
From what I’ve gathered, the restaurant’s theme is the forest. Columns wrapper with trees, an illuminated lake in the center, tree log tables, and a gorgeous flower chandelier, which was my absolute favorite part! I took dozens of photos of that chandelier alone.
The drinks: Sky Blue (above) and pineapple Mojito (below).
Complimentary appetizer: Halloumi tomatoes with pesto. This was YUM.
While we waited for the main course, I took a look upstairs. Second floor isn’t open yet though.
Just look how gorgeous the chandelier is upclose! The petals are covered with crystals.
The main course: Spring chicken (above), Pumpkin risotto (below).
Yes, we go into a steakhouse and order chicken and risotto. Not usually big fans of steak. But still couldn’t resist the magnificent interiors.
The food was good. Needed some kind of a signature taste though. The service was superb. Great hospitality and very friendly staff. It also didn’t take them long to serve the appetizers or the main course afterwards.
Pepper is located in Jumeirah Messilah beach, basement floor.
