Welcome to Chef Daniele, who's putting his own special stamp on the new menu at Beach House. If dining with a view is what you're after, Beach House is an exceptional option.

I could see Rebecca’s ears perk up when Chef Daniele mentioned we would be starting with Canadian lobster – no less than the best for this lobster carpaccio! Uniquely shaved into spaghetti-like strips, the tuna dish was just as interesting as the presentation: we found ourselves swirling the tuna around to soak up every bit of the distinctive sweet and sour sauce which was elevated with the crispy, salt notes of the pantelleria capers and crispy nori.

The prawn carpaccio with raspberries and limoncello mayo gave a sharp, tart contrast to the delicate sweetness of the red prawns while the pine nuts added a beautiful crunch. We loved the fresh wasabi, too. The seabass and tomato carpaccio was a good example of don’t judge a book by its cover – with truffle and black sesame sauce, this dish was perfection.

It’s that time of year again! After a long, hot summer, Beach House is BACK, refreshed, and ready to roll. Chef Daniele joined Park Hyatt just a few months ago and his Italian influence is noticeable with the newly updated menu.

With an unbeatable view overlooking the stunning Saadiyat

Beach, it’s only natural that the menu has a large focus on fresh seafood, prepared in many ways.

The tomato-based seafood risotto was creamy, and packed with fresh calamari and mussels. Comfort food at its finest! I love the table-side entertainment that the sea-salt-crusted fish brings and the side of fried artichoke was so good – not something I’ve had before but I will now be sure to order again and again.

We saw a little cart waiting by the kitchen and we wondered what would be served in it. Beep, beep! This cart DELIVERED. The light, airy deep-fried pizza dough encased piping hot, melted mozzarella, tomato sauce, and basil.

We enjoyed this Italian-inspired meal with a couple of their signature drinks. We’ll be back soon to sit outside and enjoy their stunning beachfront seating.

Though the weather is cooling down, it’s not quite sweater weather just yet so finishing off with some cool desserts was perfect. The limone di rocco, inspired by the lemons of the Amalfi coast, was tart and lush and the frozen fruit shells filled with gelato in each flavour were a refreshing treat. The tiramisu was cloud-like in texture with notes of strong coffee and vanilla. The airy custard was a nice contrast to the crunchy dacquoise.
