eatShayne’s Recommendes | Saffron at Atlantis the Palm Dubai

Howdy? Its been awhile.. Ive been busy at work prior to my forthcoming vacae.. Anyhow I still manage to have a grand dinner before I leave this place.. We were at Saffron for some international buffet..

The Saffron restaurant buffet at Atlantis is a bit overpriced for the quality and range of food on offer and drinks are not included. The atmosphere is more like a large canteen than a restaurant which is fine for kids, but is not to be compared with some of the alternative brunches such as at Al Qasr Brunch, Jumeirah. The real stand out thing I noticed though is the service, no individual seemed to have the authority to execute an order from start to finish. The person you make a request to is never the person to execute your request, for example order a drink, the waiter will place the order and walk away, never following up, never checking its arrival or quality, needless to say the drink gets poured but does not arrive. Eventually after repeatedly asking you will get a drink with melted ice or a beer with a flat head which at around AED 48 a pint is far from acceptable. Its not that the staff are not running around working hard, they are, its just they pass the responsibility on to others and never look back.  Would I go back? honestly, maybe, the food was well prepared and the chiefs are kind and professional, but I just think that Dubai can offer a better all round dining experience.

.. On my way to the restaurant this cute Christmas shop catches my attention  ..oohh it feels so Christmas  once you step inside. The smell of baked goods will make you float in the air which also makes my tummy growl..
