Sorry we had half board plus vouchers.

Im sure its the same price/type of food lunch and evening although Im assuming that sometimes it will only be open lunch time.

We phoned to book a few weeks before we went and anted to book for about 3.00ish I think but were told it closed for a few hrs in the afternoon and didnt reopen til 4.00 so we booked for 4.00 (we thought). We arrived just before 4.00, got our reservation ticket out which DH had asked for at City Hall when he checked reservations and noted it was 4.30. We were starving so chanced being able to get in early and there was no problem. It was very quiet with only a few people in but they looked as though they been there more than a few minutes so I dont think it had closed at all.

We were asked when we arrived if we had vouchers and then had to go to the till to hand them in and tell her which drinks we wanted. It was a very quick process but I could imagine if its busy it could be a slow process as there only seemed to be one till and some people seem to take ages choosing something as simple as a drink. Its a better idea paying at the beginning tho then its over with

Sorry cant remember how much it was
Thanks, good to know the vouchers will cover the cost here. Look forward to hearing you report of it

We ate here on our trip in July. We thought we had booked this for 4.00 (we had been told it only opened again after lunch at 4.00) but when we looked at the reservation slip we had it was booked for 4.30. When we got there it was about 10 to 4 and we were really hungry but it was obviously open as there were people eating in there so we went to see if we could get in early and there was no problem. They asked if we had vouchers and then told us which drinks we could choose from with the vouchers. We were then shown to our table. The restaurant is really lovely and well themed inside.









We went to explore the buffet and found a fabulous selection of food for all 3 courses.

To start with there were several different types of salads, olives, hoummus, coucous. melon etc





For main course again there was loads to choose from - for both vegetarian and meat eaters - moussaka, vegetarian Lasagne, Vegetable tagine, coucous, pasta, spicy chicken legs, meat balls, sausages, meat etc for kebabs,







Continued in next post

Continued from previous post

For dessert there were a selection of cakes, crepes, fruit etc
DD had seen some children with ice lollies for their desert but when we got there for desert the freezer was empty. We asked one of the chefs if there were anymore and he went to check. He then came back to say there weren’t any left but they would get some more and he’d bring us one when they got them. I thought he’d forget but in about 5 minutes whilst we were still eating the rest of our desert he came looking for us with one.





We would definitely eat there again

Report from my sister that last week they opened at 230pm on a midweek - very odd timing. I am going to confirm that this week as I plan to dine there.

We had lunch here on Friday 19th Dec. We were there at about 1pm and it wasn't busy at all and were seated right away (as soon as we'd paid lol). You pay for your meal & drinks at the till as you enter the restaurant and you then wait to be seated. You give your receipt to the waitress/waiter for them to get your drinks. It was 19.90 euros for adults and 9.90 for the kids. Can't remember how much drinks were exactly. I had Coke and I think it was 3.50 or thereabouts.

Here are a few pictures - sorry they're a bit dark though. For much nicer pictures, see lilouw's post on this thread lol. The food selection is kind of similar.




I forgot to take pictures of the dessert section but they had crepes, tarts, sliced thin gingerbread cake (which the kids loved) and also a small selection of middle-eastern 'sweeties', ie baklava.

I would definitely eat here again. The food was really tasty and makes a nice change from the usual burgers & chips. The only 'bad' thing was that the pitta bread was a bit tough. I guess it would be if it had been sitting out there for such a long time, exposed to the air.

We ate here in Feb 09 half term at around 6.30pm, using HB standard vouchers.
The theming is really good, which really adds to the atmosphere and sets it apart from the other buffet restaurants.



We didn't book and there was only a short queue to get in. However, as Plaza Gardens was shut the restaurant soon filled up, which meant quite long queues at the buffet. One drink each was included in the price, and the kids were given a small toy each.

The food, as others have said is lovely (if you want something a bit more tasty and different to the standard 'chips with everything' food!) and good value for money.

The starters included a good range of fresh looking salads, and about half of these were veggie. These included olives, cous cous, houmous, roasted veg, cucumber, tomatoes etc.

The main courses included a veg and chickpea stew and a veggie lasagne, along with meat dishes, meat kebabs, potatoes, cous cous, pasta and pitta bread. There wasn't a chip or chicken nugget in sight.

There was a fair range of puddings including baklava (which was disappointingly tasteless and dry), pancakes, chocolate mousse, fresh fruit salad, coconut cake, ginger cake, pecan pie and various others.

We ate here April 09 - fuller report and pics to follow but I thought I would post this now so you know the price. It is buffet with drink included for children but not adults although with half board vouchers it may include a drink for adults as well

We ate here April '09 also, three times in one weekend, oh how our wallets hurt, but our tummies were happy! We are all veggie folk so Agrabah was the logical choice

The restaurant is stunning, we were in the back room twice and in the front "open-air" section once.

If you are there for the veggie food, it is worth asking the cast member at the entrance to show you what the veg selection is and then checking again with the chefs, when we were there the salads were delicious, lentils, chickpeas, lots of goodness, I think all but two were vegetarian.

The veggie mains were a disappointment though, veggie lasagne - which I felt was a bit of a lazy choice by the chefs given the thought that had gone into the salads; some wedges - which were yummy, but still just wedges; pasta in tomato sauce - which is my pet hate veggie main, it's like serving up mashed potatoes with tomato ketchup as a main; and a mix of boiled/fried veg - which was quite nice.

So I can't really comment on the mains, but we ate shocking amounts of the salads and they were very filling and delicious and a wonderful protein hit in DLRP

They gave 2.5 year old DD a little Aladdin torch the first day, the second day a different lady didn't so DD asked for one (she was really looking forward to it!), the lady gave her two, and on the third day we got another. They have been a constant source of amusement for DD on this trip

I had an impromtu lunch here to eat something even slightly nutritious before my DS's birthday tea at The Lucky Nugget.
It was a lovely mix of cous cous, hummous, chicken, fish, spicy sausages, schawarma, salad and bread. The chicken legs were especially delicious.

I loved the theming





Unfortunately I could not justify having any dessert before a dessert buffet but the cakes and pastries on offer looked yummy.
