Zanzi Bar is a picturesque al fresco restaurant and bar, situated on the private shoreline of the Kempinski Hotel Ajman. Only a 40 minute drive from Dubai and in the heart of Ajman’s key attractions, the 5* beach resort feels like a world away from the hustle and bustle of the aforementioned Emirates.
You could be in Zanzibar – the restaurant is raised from the beach on wooden decking, surrounded by white sands (some of the softest to be experienced in the UAE), clear blue waters, palm trees and the island feel is enhanced by a laid-back atmosphere and option to enjoy the freshest catch of the day.
The menu is varied with a ‘beach BBQ’ theme – its most popular selection highlighted as the ‘Surf Platter’, an impressive selection of whole lobster, jumbo shrimp, salmon and sea bass. We selected this to share alongside the ‘Mixed Grill’ – an assortment of meats including chicken, lamb and beef cuts. Accompanied by the ‘Tricolour’ and ‘Ceasar Salad’, this was quite the feast.
The seafood was fresh and the catch was impressive, whilst the meat was cooked to perfection. There was enough food on the table for at least a group of 6-8 people, and the selection suited all tastes.
From a relaxed beach BBQ to a romantic island dinner setting – the staff let us know that the restaurant is transformed in the evening with soft lighting and candles – perfect to enjoy the sunset or a truly romantic evening.
The beach BBQ theme and relaxed island vibe provides a really unique experience in the UAE – which we highly recommend (alongside the Surf Platter and a Passion Fruit Mojito!). Next stop for us at the Kempinski Hotel Ajman is the popular Friday Garden Brunch – watch out for its review – coming soon!
