What You See:
Mood lighting with touches of blue, a beautifully-lit bar, dark wood and generally dim interiors make this restaurant perfect for an intimate meal, especially if your date nurses a fondness for gin (they stock over 30). Adding to the romance are cushy, high-backed sofas and a stunning view of the Arabian Sea.
Best Of Bar & Kitchen:
Pica Pica, a dining style wherein everyone at the table shares tapas from a communal plate, contributes to a sense of warmth and intimacy at Arola. The food is predominantly Spanish Catalan and of the many appetizers, the prawns Carpaccio and the baby artichoke hearts with lemon mayo, provide a superb combination of flavours. Heavier options include the paella, the steak tartare and the pork loin, but Arola’s trump card lies in their bar menu that offers up a huge range of wines and superlative gin cocktails.
The patatas bravas – crispy potato morsels filled with pepper sauce and topped with a light blob of mayonnaise. The perfect tapa dish for Arola, the patatas are an excellent accompaniment to most gin cocktails.
