The first epicurean brunch in Northern Emirates has been launched last January 23, 2018. It’s in Basilico, an award winning restaurant in Cove Rotana Resort in Ras al Khaimah.
The concept of this brunch entitled the GourMed Brunch has a Live band in the terrace, a Pass Around food that can come anytime to your table, buffet for the appetizer, dessert and some drinks and lastly the main course is in Ala Carte menu which is served in mini portions so you may want to try them all. We have tried few of them namely: Lamb chops, Homemade ravioli, Roasted organic chermoula salmon, Tuna fillet and Sauteed garlic shrimp. I guess they have the finest selection for this course because they all tasted rich and delicious. Each dishes were beautifully plated!
Upon entrance there’s a cute photo frame that anyone can capture a memory from Basilico. The flooring is wooden and the buffet is completely all over the place. It’s very spacious with nice table set-ups.
You will most likely want to be seated outside because of it’s fascinating sea and resort views. The weather was so good that makes the ambiance so perfect for a delightful family brunch and enjoy some catchy Spanish songs that’s so pleasant to the ears.
Well our son Hamza, started his own meal already while I was still checking out the menu for the main course. A plate of pizza with mozzarella stick was placed in front of him. It’s like they know his favourite and the happiness on his face cannot be measured!
I walked back inside to look around more of the buffet after I ordered our main course. So you’ll get a little bit of everything from Italy, France, Spain and a few from Arabic and Indian cuisines and even Sushi.
You’ll get to see the busy open-kitchen also from there and the staffs are non-stop serving customers. They have an on-going competition about this brunch. Just take a photo/selfie during your brunch in Basilico and upload it on Instagram with the hashtag #GourMedBasilico and tag Cove Rotana Resort with 2 tagged friends. There will be a winner every Sunday for a One Night stay for two in the resort for the lucky follower. Fab prize isn’t it? Perfect getaway from the city!
This brunch is for AED 255 inclusive of VAT and service charge from 12nn to 4pm every Friday. You can find the reservation here. With its location, it’s a perfect getaway whilst enjoying great food!
