Culinary Showcase: Century Village
December 2, 2018

And the Festive Season offers are on too

Century Village has been a bit of an expat must-stop for many years, courtesy a multitude of al-fresco dining options bang in the heart of the city.

Boasting an enjoyable mix of great cuisine, al fresco dining and live music, Century Village recently had a facelift just in time for winter. The main change to the area has been the terrace, which has been redesigned with plenty of greenery, fountains and pergolas.

Century Village’s nine licensed restaurants serve Italian, Portuguese, French, British, Japanese, American, Indian, Mediterranean and Seafood cuisine. These include Urban Steakhouse SoHo Bar and Grill, Zorba Greek Restaurant, Masala Kraft and Sushi Sushi.

Take La Vigna, for instance. One of Dubai’s oldest and well known Italian restaurants, it boasts a rustic charm and authentic, wood paneled ambiance. Interestingly its menu has remained largely unchanged for over 18 years, testament to a blend of native Italian recipes and fresh ingredients.

Apart from Italian standards like pastas, risottos, grilled meats and seafood apart, live pizza oven uses Italian wood to flavor the pizzas.

And they have now announced festive deals for the Christmas season.

For one, you get feast on a two-course meal with a glass of grape for just AED 99 at all Century Village outlets from December 1 to December 30.

In addition to the AED 99 deal, the individual restaurants have a bevy of offers:
