Delectable cuisine meets uncompromising service at Alba. The all-day open kitchen promises indelible Italian cuisine accompanied by breathtaking views of the resort’s pristine beachfront and shimmering pool from the picturesque terrace and dining room.
White oak floors and a natural palette of ivory and sand enhance the dining room’s airy atmosphere while ample natural light streams in through floor-to-ceiling windows framed in elegant black iron. The space is further distinguished by a lively central show kitchen, a separate island kitchen, and a refined bar encased in natural oak.
Executive chef, Ayyoub Salameh, evinces his culinary prowess by reinterpreting traditional Italian dishes. Breakfast specialties include poached egg with orange hollandaise and black truffles; inspired appetizers and entrées such as foie gras terrine, white asparagus with fried polenta, and a variety of risottos and handmade pastas are followed by tempting desserts, including gelato and spice cake.
Enticing vegetarian and gluten-free selections are also available, and a children’s menu features dishes favored by younger palates, such as French toast and deli sandwiches.
Alba’s knowledgeable sommelier is pleased to recommend top-shelf labels from their collection of renowned vintages.
