Spirito Lounge & Kitchen is a new Brazilian & Latin American dining concept bringing authentic South American dishes to Dubai. Located on level 9 at the Media One Hotel, the space is quite vibrant and filled with color. Trio’s of chandeliers hang from the low rise ceiling creating a vibrant yet cozy atmosphere, which is elevated with an eclectic sound mix of Latin Jazz, Latin House, Bossa Nova, Samba and Reggae. With a dedicated bar and lounge area, Spirito is Dubai’s next stylish new hangout.
Where: Spirito Dubai at Media One Hotel.
Cuisine: Latin American, Brazilian
Perfect for: A nice evening to spend time with a group of friends for great drinks and food.
Service: The service was pretty satisfactory for a significantly busy Thursday night. For a newly launched restaurant it was exceedingly crowded. In spite of the massive crowd, we got a pretty cute table. The staff was attentive and helpful especially while explaining each dish. Unfortunately due to the crowd, the service was considerably slow. The dishes, and drinks too, took quite a while to arrive. Although since Spirito is such a lively typical Brazilian like restaurant, that has high-spirited loud music, we didn’t feel the wait.
What we loved: The idea of partitioning the lounge/bar area from the more restaurant like area. One solely for the bar area and the other half for people who want to sit down for a good meal. The Camaro Alho E Oleu and the Orta De Sonho De Valsa is a must try. The Camaro Alho E Oleu is Smoked Chilli prawns topped with pan fried garlic, very juicy and well done. Whereas the Orta De Sonho De Valsa is the Brazilian bon bon cake with a good layering of chocolate and cream. It was the perfect blend and texture with just enough flavorings, not too less and not too much. We surely see Spirito becoming a popular new place to chill.
What we didn’t love as much: The quantity seemed a little insufficient per dish.
Ambiance: Extremely welcoming staff. An absolutely dynamic place with good music. Their interiors are exceptionally colorful and spirited. It is quite an elegant, modern and cultural mood.
