Via Veneto is the newest kid on the block along Mohammad Bin Rashid Boulevard, Downtown Dubai.
The restaurant is located in the exact space previously occupied by Fumé which unfortunately closed down a few months ago. As soon as you enter, you will feel the airy atmosphere and the massive space divided into different parts.
On the first floor is a casual café meant for breakfast where they serve healthy and tasty food and it still kind of looks like Fumé with an open kitchen and wooden chairs and tables. Upstairs is where guests can have alcohol and an even more sophisticated food with a view of the Palace Downtown Hotel and Burj Khalifa.
We came here on a Friday morning and was told that since it’s still 11am, we can still order from the breakfast menu. They have a lot on offer though aside from the breakfast but we didn’t really check it since we went there specifically for the breakfast offerings.
Their menu features modern presentations of traditional recipes and we were told that they really focus on quality and freshness and as a matter of fact, everything is prepared as soon as they are ordered.
Anyway, I’m not going to mention each and every one of them because we ordered a lot but bottom line is, they were really good. My favorite would have to be the duck waffle and if you would visit, you should definitely order that one.
When it comes to the service, I have to commend Sam and Lyka as they both were very attentive and made sure that they catered to whatever we needed during the time. They were also supportive as we were taking pictures so extra brownie points for them.
Overall, I loved the dining experience at Via Veneto. They have proven that even though they are new, they know the ins and outs of the business and definitely knows how to take care of the clients. Via Veneto is a nice place for breakfast and I would urge everyone to visit and try their delectable dishes not just for breakfast but for lunch and dinner too. And they are also on the Entertainer app so you’re really getting a great deal dining here. I have nothing else to add except that you should really pay them a visit, it’s worth it! 👍🏻
