Few Fridays ago we took the advantage of exploring the ever so charming grounds of Palm Jumeirah and spent the afternoon relaxing at Palm Avenue Bar Grill, a poolside, chic coastal restaurant in the midst of the elegant Waldorf Astoria.
Under the sparkling skies of Dubai along a refreshing and contemporary ambiance overlooking the pool view and beach front is a perfect venue for a leisurely afternoon lunch that features splendid Mediterranean delights with exotic Shisha flavors.
Though their elegant Cabana adjacent to the pool was my initial choice, all of them were reserved in advance. So we opted for their beautiful outdoor terrace, the other options were a vibrant indoor setting or exquisite beach sitting area. The refreshing blue pool is so enticing, with a shallow area safe for kids to play in.

Verdict: One of its kind, Palm Avenue is perfect for a lavish lunch on a sunny Friday afternoon with family & friends. Free access to their beautiful swimming pool and alongside the beach you have a selection of exciting water sports activities including Banana Boating, Snorkeling & Water Skiing is just icing on the cake.
As for the Staff, the Shisha guy was so hilarious and helped us out when we wanted to change the flavors. Similarly, our attendant customized their Pasta with off the menu flavors & toppings, however the pasta was tooo huge and not at all as per likings.
The food has an extra Oomph factor to it, with an exotic Tropical vibe. Out of all the four drinks we had, each one is uniquely designed for summers. The chef is a sweetheart and customizes your dishes with a happy smile. While returning home, I was pleasantly surprised and left the Hotel with a full tummy and a bag of their delicious Garlic Fries.
