The Galliard is a Mediterranean Turkish Fusion Restaurant and Lounge named after the popular dance in France, Spain, and Italy during the Renaissance period.
The brand has influences from these three Mediterranean countries’ food and drink cultures and aside from serving delicious treats, expect art and music to be the in the spotlight as well.
As soon as guests step in The Galliard, or at least when I stepped in, I was amazed by the architecture which focused on light colored massive woods, Mediterranean marbles, and Venetian terrazzo. The place is massive and extends up to the outdoor terrace where you can have one of the best views of the Burj Khalifa. I have visited numerous restaurants already but this one still managed to fill with astonishment.
The Galliard is one of those restaurants that you visit and know for sure that anything you order will be good. It’s impressive to know that the pasta and pizza and bread are all handmade and prepared with genuine care and dedication.
The must-try dishes, however, are the following items; “Lakerda”, bone marrow, Champs-Élysées (60 cm beef sausage), stuffed chard, Octopus “Gavurdağı”, risotto served in parmesan wheel, bladed lamb pizzette, lamb ribs, John Dory Sauté, paella and lobster linguini.
The service is excellent as well with everyone (and I mean every single one of them) knowing what to recommend and what to say when asked about the products and the history of the place. You can also see how happy they were doing their jobs and so it feels like you’re a part of their family.
The background music also enhanced the dining experience with the house DJ playing jazz, soul, and deep house tracks while guests enjoy the food and the atmosphere.
All in all, the dining experience at Galliard was hands down one of the most outstanding meals I’ve had this month. I wasn’t sure how I would feel prior to visiting the place but I’m so glad now that I tried it because otherwise, I wouldn’t have known how amazing it is. If you’re a fan (or even if you’re not a fan) of Turkish cuisine, then you should visit The Galliard because it hit all the right notes and I’m sure it will please even the most discerning palates and connoisseurs out there.
