About the restaurant
Situated in the heart of DIFC, Amazónico takes inspiration from the cultural diversity and gastronomic heritage of the Amazon region.

Combining a blend of tropical and Latin American cuisines our menus are not only inspired by the countries of the Amazon but the unique Asian and Mediterranean communities which inhabit them. From tropical sushi and the freshest raw seafood to carefully sourced grilled meats and fish; our chefs use both traditional and cutting-edge techniques along with seasonal and vibrant ingredients to transport you to Latin America.

Open from lunch until late, Amazónico boasts a range of exciting spaces including the vibrant and energetic Lounge, a statement cocktail bar, a buzzy restaurant and a breath-taking roof terrace. Our resident DJs spin ‘electro-pical’ music live each evening.

About the restaurant
Bathed by the blue of the sky and sea, Eauzone is a place to contemplate the rhythm of ocean tides and the setting sun. On the beach surrounded by palm trees, Eauzone features shaded wooden decks and floating "Majilis" overlooking the Arabian Gulf and translucent pool. The ambience is casual by day and stylish after sunset. Once night descends it evokes intimacy in a slick, refined restaurant complemented by modern food with an Asian twist.

It was not the first time I went to Kitchen6. It's my family's favorite place since last 3 years. Though it's still good, I have observed the dishes are curtailed over time. Full lamb dish Ouzi disappeared, scallops just to name two. Overall great experience always.

About the restaurant
The Concept
Ṛtú(Seasons of India)

Revelry’s bar menu was crafted with a deep appreciation for India’s diverse climatic conditions, which give rise to four distinct seasons: summer, autumn, monsoon, and winter. Each of these seasons brings forth a wealth of fruits and vegetables, contributing to India’s abundant agricultural heritage and culinary traditions. Drawing inspiration from these vibrant seasons, we have meticulously curated our bar menu to embark on a flavorful Indian journey for your palate.

Our cocktails bear names in Hindi, the official language of India, adding an authentic touch to your drinking experience. Revelry’s menu is a creation brought to life by our Head Mixologist, Vince Varghese, in collaboration with Chef Rahul Rana. The dedicated duo of Vince and Chef Rahul has rekindled the cherished memories and nostalgic moments from their upbringing in diverse regions of India, paving the path for the inception of Revelry Chapter 1.

We have visited this restaurant three times, the last two times we brought our visiting family along. The food is really delicious, we love the idea of small indian tapas. They are consistent with the taste and quality of food. We don’t mind to drive up this place for 25 minutes as its totally worth it. Thank you Mr. Laksman who helped us very well during our last visit.
