Inspired by the golden age of Cesar Ritz and Auguste Escoffier who came to fame in the late 19th century, The Ritz Gourmet Lounge embraces the heritage of these two pioneers in international hospitality with a dedicated menu influenced by some of Escoffier’s world classics served in a splendid royal ambience. The authentic French interior design has been created in reminiscence of the Belle Epoque, the “Beautiful Era”, a period in French history which started around 1890 and ended in 1914. Rich velvet upholstered Napoleon chairs and sofas invite to enjoy a chic ambience like in a Parisian “Salon de The”.

Guests can sample Escoffier’s signature dishes such as Peach Melba, named after the Australian opera singer Nellie Melba, Belle Helene and Strawberries Romanoff. Imported leaf teas from Sri Lanka, China and South America are on offer from the tisane trolley, freshly cut in front of the guest and served in silver pots. For coffee aficionados, a freshly roasted selection of various coffees from Arabica to Turkish is available daily and can be purchased in the gourmet lounge retail area - along with home-made breads, croissants, pates, tartines, richly decorated desserts, chocolates, ice cream, fine olive oils and caviar.

The highlight of the restaurant is the shisha terrace lounge serving exotic and newly composed flavours in oversized contemporary Meduse pipes, made of Czech hand-blown Bohemian Glass. Guests may sample Meduse Beach, a blend of watermelon, lemon and coconut, Eden’s Apple, a composition of Eskandarani apple, chocolate and mint or Karkade Mist, mixed with pomegranate, strawberry and plum. A dedicated shisha sommelier assists with choosing the perfect flavour and recommends a selection of drinks and refreshments to accompany this finest shisha experience.
