Caramel Restaurant & Lounge Dubai is one of the oldest institutions in the heart of DIFC but I only got to visit it last night. The Caramel Group, a hospitality development and management company founded in 2009 is the mastermind for this unique outlet. The restaurant provides patrons with a young and sophisticated contemporary-American restaurant perfect for a quick bite or business lunch.
By night, Caramel Restaurant & Lounge transforms into an exciting and energetic ultra-lounge serving flavorful decadent plates, and offering a full service bar; ideal for unwinding with co-workers or a fun filled night with close friends. I visited last night when I learned that they were having the Sundown Brunch. Basically, this type of brunch starts at 7pm till late and is perfect for me because I want to eat but don’t want to wake up early on Fridays.
The restaurant & lounge boasts of a warm inviting ambiance the moment you enter their doors. I was amazed at the bar and although I had a hard time taking pictures because the place was a bit dark, I later on appreciated the fact that it actually works and I quite liked the lighting. Social animals will be pleased to know that together with the relaxing atmosphere, Caramel Restaurant & Lounge offers drinking, dining, and entertainment at one centrally located hot spot.
I usually talk about the service of the restaurant when I write a post towards the end but I was just in awe of the exceptional customer service that every single staff has shown us yesterday that I need to highlight it. Most of the time, the dining experience starts from the minute you are received at the restaurant. It’s like it determines whether you will love the restaurant or not.
Last night, we just had a remarkable experience starting from the hostesses at the reception who guided us to our table to the waiters and waitresses who took and served our orders to the restaurant manager who made sure we have everything that we wanted to have a great night. It was so noteworthy, I can still remember it up to now.
When it comes to the food, the Sundown Brunch includes 8 dishes in total. You get an endless supply of Chicken Lettuce Bites, Signature Chicken Lollipops, Marinated Beef Tacos, Mini Mac and Cheese, Mini Kobe Beef Sliders, Kale & Quinoa Salad, Mini Truffle Fish & Chips and Spinach & Avocado Salad.
This might sound like it’s not enough when you look on paper but believe me, they are filling. They also refill it for you without you asking and I just came to a point where I’m so stuffed, I can’t breathe so I told them to stop and I’m ready for the desserts.
They then brought out the desserts which were a surprise because it’s not on the menu. I believe it changes every week and last night, we had the chocolate filled brownie, cheesecake and the other dessert which was very refreshing but I forgot the name. 😂
To sum up, I was really impressed at how the Sundown Brunch turned out last night at Caramel Restaurant & Lounge. The place was fascinating, the food was great and the service was outstanding. I tried hard to find a fault or maybe something wrong that I can complain about but I had no luck. The establishment has been there for a long time and it was only last night when I understood why their patrons keep on coming back. If you’re looking for a place and unsure where to go, I would absolutely recommend this place. You can never go wrong with a classic that is Caramel.
