Authentic Italian food in a fun atmosphere
The first thing you notice about Circo Abu Dhabi, is the vibrant décor against a fine dining environment. Exposed light fixtures hanging from the ceiling and a colourful monkey mask wall, add fun to the place.
We went for lunch as a family and the little one wanted margarita pizza and strawberry milkshake, neither of which were on the kids menu but the restaurant manager, was very quick to accept her demands and invited her to make her own milkshake, giving us time to peruse our menus.
We opted for the quail and porcini mushroom risotto with truffle – full of flavour with great consistency. The portion was large for a starter, however it was finished.
We also tried Burrata with mixed berries, which was fresh, fruity and refreshing. Both were head chef’s signature dishes.
Ricotta and spinach ravioli in butter and sage sauce followed and whilst it was a buttery sauce, it wasn’t swimming in an oily liquid. The Tuscan seafood stew was hearty and fresh.
Desserts – also from the chef’s signature menu – were tiramisu dome and crème brulee. Both delicious, but we would have preferred the crème brulee to have a crunchier top.
Circo Abu Dhabi, is lovely for a family meal, whilst there aren’t any specific kids activities, the staff make it an experience for them.
