AIZA is a brand-new, homegrown, Greek-Mediterranean restaurant, bar and lounge, located at The Pointe, Palm Jumeirah, Dubai. At AIZA, guests can embark on a captivating culinary and social journey, while experiencing the perfect harmony of Greek-Mediterranean cuisine, inspired by the Cyclades Islands in the Aegean Sea.
A warm and welcoming one-stop destination, AIZA is a fully licensed open-plan venue, with an alluring open-air terrace, where guests will find the ideal blend of mouth-watering Greek-Mediterranean cuisine, refreshing beverages, and a specially curated line-up of live entertainment – all topped off by stunning views of the world’s largest fountain, in the idyllic setting of the East Marina at The Pointe.
AIZA’s carefully crafted menu draws inspiration from the Cyclades Islands and features a flavour-filled array of dishes made with speciality ingredients from different islands. Guests can look forward to being taken on a multi-sensory journey that explores the enchanting flavours of Greek-Mediterranean cooking. In doing so, they will embrace the true warmth of Greek hospitality, with each delicious dish served family sharing-style, generously portioned, and placed at the centre of the table.
The AIZA team’s philosophy is rooted in the culinary magic, hospitality, and warmth of service of the Cyclades Islands, and guests can expect to have their taste buds transported to the islands of Santorini, Mykonos, Naxos, and Paros, to name a few. From Greek cheeses, Kalamata olives, Mediterranean seafood, and the choicest meats, to Souvlaki prepared live at guests’ tables and authentic Greek desserts like Loukouma, Baklava and Orange Pie – AIZA sources the majority of its produce from Greece, along with a carefully chosen variety of the freshest locally sourced ingredients.
Not your typical Greek tavern, AIZA’s exquisite interiors take inspiration from the abundance of Cyclades Islands in the Aegean Sea. At the heart of AIZA’s Greek-Mediterranean dining experience are the roots of the iconic tree chandelier, taking guests back to ancient Greece. Exposed illuminated stone on the bar and inset wall pay homage to the island cliffs, while the flooring serves as a nod to the pebbly roads of the island towns.
Suspended wavy ceiling fabric symbolises the forces of nature, reflecting where the sky and sea collide, and, through the arched window, panoramic projections represent the infinite beauty of the islands. A grove of olive trees and a finishing touch of dried golden palm leaves, small touches representing Greek mythology, while the boho chic terrace is a one-stop playground for those seeking to welcome in the weekend in style.
Combining dining and drinks with music and breath-taking views of the fountains AIZA is sure to be a popular destination in the coming months.
AIZA is open Monday to Saturday 6.00pm to 2.00am with the kitchen operating 6.00pm to 12 midnight.
