Designed to showcase the core elements of Grecian culture and cuisine, DIFC-based restaurant Gaia melds chic interiors with a high-energy atmosphere and food courtesy of Chef Izu Ani…
If you’re looking for a leisurely lunch or dinner with an abundance of time to catch-up with family and friends, look again: in keeping with typical Greek fashion, expect a bustling vibe and plates delivered to your table at record-shattering speed at Gaia.
That said, the sumptuous but simply done Greek-Mediterranean cuisine makes enduring the slightly feverish atmosphere more than worthwhile (Chef Izu Ani is its culinary mastermind, also known for his work at Le Petite Maison, La Serre and Carine). MOJEH recommends trying either the Greek or Lobster salads, the Sea Bass Ceviche, Greek Style Meatballs and anything from the fresh fish counter.
In contrast to its hyperactive vibe, interiors are beautifully laid-back with low tables, sofa style seating, and a refreshing wash of cream, white and lemon. Book ahead, avoid the weekend rush if you can, expect excellent food in an energetic atmosphere, and you won’t be disappointed.
