The next time you visit the Coral Beach Resort -Sharjah, don’t forget to stop over at the reception desk to collect a free postcard offering a 15% discount at Al Dente, its signature restaurant featuring fine Italian fare. But remember, this is a one-time offer of one postcard per table that is valid until July 20.
“Al Dente is our award-winning restaurant that serves popular Italian specialties in a modern and comfortable setting. Our chef focuses on using seasonal ingredients for his gastronomic creations to lend them freshness and lightness, coming up with a distinctive menu for the promotion that offers a culinary experience that’s sure to delight our guests,” says Jean Pierre Simon, Regional General Manager, Coral Hotels & Resorts.
Last March, Sharjah’s top Italian restaurant won an award for ‘culinary excellence’ at the Al Qasba Food Festival held in the emirate in recognition of the splendid banquet served up by its chef at the festival’s Sadia Chef Theatre.
“Al dente literally means ‘to the tooth’, pointing to the desired texture of cooked pasta in Italian cooking, firm but not hard, offering resistance to the bite. But the cozytrattoria, oozing Italian charm, is more than just pasta, its fine-dining options including a range of delectable soups, meat (beef, lamb, chicken) and fish dishes, accompanied by hearty vegetables and topped with desserts like tiramisu and bread pudding. The portions are generous and you’ll find the prices compare favourably with other eateries,” Simon explains.
Sporting a Tuscan-inspired setting and an open kitchen with a glowing brick oven, Al Dente is open seven days a week, its service timings being from 12.00 noon to 12.00 midnight. It is located in the lobby of the family-friendly Coral Beach Resort Sharjah, which is very popular with business and leisure travellers looking for a quiet retreat.
Apart from the Italian flavours of Al Dente, the 156-room hotel offers a wide repertoire of dining options with menus catering to every taste. Its conference facilities and meeting rooms are ideal for business conclaves, with the beach providing the perfect antidote to corporate stress. In addition, it has consciously created an environment to foster health, wellness and sport for families and children, its facilities including a state-of-the-art fitness centre, outdoor swimming pools and tennis, badminton and volleyball courts, apart from children’s play and leisure facilities.
