Maison Mathis Opening Party @ Arabian Ranches

On Monday evening, I and friend T were invited to the opening party of the Belgian restaurant Maison Mathis in Arabian Ranches. As we arrived, we were greeted with a glass of bubbly and guided to a nice table outside on the terrace, overlooking the golf course.
I have only been to the Ranches Restaurant and Bar before so this is a very nice addition to the golf club and especially living in Al Waha/Layan community, it is also very convenient location wise.

Maison Mathis has a beautiful terrace overlooking the golf course

Plenty of space and a great ambience

Who could resist these?!

During the evening, lovely waiters and waitresses passed by with trays stuffed with salmon bruschetta, crab mousse, delicious pastries, fried fish sticks with tartar sauce, foie gras canapé to mention a few. Close to the bakery counter, two food stations were set up, one serving assorted cheese and the other various cold cuts such as Parma ham and salami. Needless to say, I found myself going back and forth, re-filling my plate with these delicacies!
All I can say is that everything was very delicious, the restaurant had a nice ambience so Maison Mathis is a place I will definitely visit again soon!

  4. Hi!! It's been so busy lately and esp. with the upcoming holidays!! It sounds lovely with guests but I know it's always hard work but great to spend time with friends and family! This place was really nice and I can definitely recommend it, esp. you don't have to go all the way into town (for us at least). The cold cuts and cheese were amazing and the bakery section looked pretty good too! I'm thinking of organising a small blog event at my house in Jan, will let you know as it would be great to meet up! xxx

  5. I am craving a trip to Dubai so desperately! I work with a company from Dubai and they always invite me to visit them. sooner or later I'll come!!
