Really enjoyed their tapas style food. I went to P&C a few years ago when it was still a seafood restaurant and did not rate it at all. Since it's changed hands and become a Spanish cuisine, it's awesome! Staff are great and the serving sizes are good portions. Loved the beef fillet served with a variety of potatoes! The... More

Went to the rooftop bar for pre dinner drinks which opens at 6pm. What stunning views, wow! It's well worth going for a drink as it's beautiful, especially now while the weather is perfect. We went on a Saturday night and were told that ladies would get free sangria from 8pm on the rooftop, although we didn't partake as we... More

While you expect to arrive in a seafood restaurant, it is rahter the spanish cuisine that took over. Notwithstanding this surprise, we rate this restaurant as very good.

I love P&C for its beautiful location and recently I was surprised with personal approach to the customers. I would like to thank Joseph and manager for fantastic organisation of my friend's birthday. Despite I was away of the UAE couple days before event, they made all organisational moments well: via e-mails we have chosen menu, the most beautiful table,... More

We went to this lovely bar before we went out for dinner to another place. So we just had some drinks. While it was quite funny, we were alone at this lovely place, nobody else was there. So we had this attentive Bar-Man just for us. He was lovely, funny and give us all the information about our drinks. I... More

The location of P&C along the coast in Shangri-La hotel is just great for intimate times. The views are amazing during bearable weather in the evenings. The cocktail choices are many to choose from the bar. Open seating on the terrace is good with open sky views.

Somewhat pricey Spanish tapas restaurant in the grounds of the Shangri La hotel, set on a pier just off the beach. Large, well decorated trendy restaurant with romantic of the Grand Mosque. Service was good, our waiter suggested the squid and ceviche which were spot on. As a couple we chose 5 tapas dishes, including the gazpacho, oxtail tapas and... More

The Casi Todo menu was a great surprise. We didn't know what we were going to taste, and the waiter recommended this degustation option. It is very reasonable, price and size wise. A few things that standed out, the seabass and scallops ceviches, the Octopus and the rice with langoustine and foigrais.
