Seafood Night in Mercure Barsha Heights

When you're welcomed to a restaurant by a harmless-looking pirate, you know you're in for a treat!

Ed and I were caught by surprise when Captain Jack Sparrow - I mean, a staff dressed in a pirate costume - greeted us at the entrance door of Day & Night restaurant in Mercure Dubai Hotel in Barsha Heights.

Day & Night is an all-day dining restaurant serving global cuisine. But every Friday night, the restaurant is transformed into a "seafood island" manned by sailors and a friendly pirate!

Day & Night's Seafood Night starts at 6 in the evening; hence the restaurant was full-packed and the buffet was no longer spick and span when Ed and I arrived at 8. However, for all that, my first impression was positive. 

We kicked off the night at the Salads and Appetizers section. Although I haven't seen the rest of the buffet yet, I knew it is where I would go back and forth! I adore the finely crafted appetizers - the seafood terrine and other seafood-based canapes! A variety of high-quality shellfish are beautifully presented in wooden barrels and on a bed of ice; all taste fresh and succulent! Adjacent to it is the sushi and sashimi station where I got some delicate yet delightful Japanese rolls!

An array of main dishes was neatly arranged in one corner. The choices are great! There's an herb-crusted barramundi fish, spaghetti ala puttanesca, seafood thermidor, seafood paella and a whole lot more. I love it, but for the main course, the dishes from the live-cooking station are definitely the ones that took center stage! Diners can choose among the fresh catch and have it cooked!

Seafood delight! 

I made a mistake of filling my belly with too much seafood. How did I forget about dessert? Day & Night has an enticing selection of sweet treats and fresh fruits. And there's even a chocolate fondue! I managed to squeeze in a tart and chocolate-dipped fruits. All were sooo good, leaving me wishing I saved enough room for a cake or two!
