We recently visited Pergolas restaurant at Roda Al Murooj hotel to sample their Seafood Night buffet which happens every Tuesday evening from 7pm to 11:30pm. The restaurant prides itself of fresh catches that include a variety of fish and seafood, as well as other specials.
We have already dined in this restaurant a couple of months back for an Iftar buffet during Ramadan Season and we had a good experience then. So when an opportunity arose to try their Tuesday themed dinner, we didn’t hesitate in going to Downtown Dubai area for this visit.

Review: Tuesday Seafood Buffet at Pergolas in Roda Al Murooj, Downtown Dubai
I’m glad that we arrived early so I could take pictures of the food before other guests came. As a blogger, I find it quite a challenge to photograph buffet spreads compared to a la carte dishes. After all, I have be extra careful in making sure I don’t include people in my snaps. Also, I prefer taking pictures of the beautiful presentations done by the restaurant team before they are devoured by customers, yours truly included, of course. Anyway…
Sushi, Salads, Mezzes
While the main theme is seafood, you cannot expect a buffet in the UAE without the staple Arabic salads and mezzes.

Looking at the buffet spread, I was excited to dig in and get some helpful servings. I believe this was our first Seafood themed buffet in the UAE so we were wondering what items we were going to find.
fish, chicken and beef dishes
tempura an calamari
Asian Baked Salmon, Baked Nile Perch
Food options were plenty so we were happy with the available choices of seafood. Personally, the main highlight of the night consisted of the grilled prawns, deep-fried shrimps and calamari, and most especially delicious grilled Omani Lobsters.
If it’s not so busy, the chefs can grill some lobsters and make a nice a plate presentation for you.

Same like last time, the desserts are also in a dedicated round station and they offer a selection of international desserts and a couple of Arabic sweets. Fresh fruits are also available as well as a chocolate fountain.
