Verdura is a newly opened gem located in Ibn Battuta Mall. Inspired by the Mother Nature greens, everything is handmade at Verdura. Chef Ahmed Al Fakier brought a perfect twist to Mediterranean Cuisine at Verdura. All delicacies are created by embracing flavors from Greece, Italy & the Levant (Syria & Lebanon). Chef Ahmed being a creative, passionate, hardworking and a determined person put 6 months of his effort into designing a menu that has a caloric count for everyone who is health conscious. They all can now savor their palates and devour authentic flavors without a distress with the presentations that will leave you astonished.
Verdura is offering palatable Mediterranean food with exquisite presentations and appetizing dishes. We were invited to try their Special Iftar set menu priced at only 120AED. One can relish a different Iftar set menu every day. The prices are super affordable for a culinary experience in a super comforting casual dining where you can nestle within Mediterranean exotic greens. The restaurant is seamless in terms of time, money and impeccable service. The restaurant offers a one kind of experience in Dubai.
VERDURA atmosphere is a Mediterranean glory eatery on earth and one of kind haven. Making the space closer to the nature was also addressed by placing plants all over the restaurant. We really like the variation of furniture bringing bright accent colors into the organic setting. Every little accent in the restaurant creates an inspiring garden atmosphere and takes us away from the city’s busy life. The color green brings balance and harmony to its surroundings. They have used very creative and sustainable use of materials. The minute you enter, a breath of fresh colors, a fresh air infused by smells of different herbs revitalize you physically, mentally or emotionally.
The brand logo perfectly describes their inspiration with Mediterranean unique nature of sun, sea, oil & greens. One can reconnect with all elements of nature at VERDURA as their architecture truly reflects the brand’s essence “naturally natural”. After a stressful day there’s just nothing like the smell, sight and touch of fresh, green nature.
The staff is not only friendly here at Verdura but are perfect hosts. We savored a wide variety of delectable dishes from the Wednesday’s Iftar set menu starting off from a selection of soup & Ramadan special juices. Following are the delightful dishes we tried from the set menu.

Desserts – This took our evening to whole another level. We both adore Kunafa like anything. The chef’s special creation was delightful & lip smacking good. Special Kunafa Roll with orange pastry crème filling and Ghazl El Banat is highly recommended. Sweet, crunchy, creamy pastry filling went perfect with Kunafa rolls.
The other dessert we tried was Date Cake with Caramel sauce and Tempura Dates. The cake was light and fluffy has a creamy caramel sauce that soaks into it for extra sweetness and stickiness accompanied by their turkish coffee.
Loved how the chef has given a twist to all the authentic flavors, by coming up with outstanding enticing dishes, the premium quality ingredients used in all dishes are mostly being imported from Europe. Everything we tried was cooked to perfection. It had authentic flavors, zest, aromas that satisfy you completely. We highly recommend this gem!!
