Najel All-day Dining Restaurant

Local dining with international flare

Situated at the first floor, Najel is the Arabic word for a local fish, the Red Sea Grouper. Thus inspired by the sea, the restaurant displays eye-catching pendants made from glass globes with red murano glass coral branches.

Our main restaurant offers sumptuous buffets for breakfast and dinner to be enjoyed both indoors or al fresco. With a fantastic array of salads, entrées, desserts and live cooking stations featuring local and international specialities, Najel is your passport to variety cuisine.  A separate children’s buffet is also available.

Ahi Tuna with Ratatouille and Olive and Aubergine Pesto

A gourmet treat inspired by Mediterranean flavours, this dish pairs a lightly sautéed fillet of yellowfin tuna with a contemporary take on ratatouille, and two pesto creations, one with black olives and the other with aubergine.

Seafood Soup with Tarragon Pistou and Saffron

This light seafood dish is enhanced by the addition of tarragon, a fragrant herb with a delicate, slightly bitter-sweet flavour, its aroma reminiscent of a mixture between anise and woodruff.

Tagliatelle with Basil Walnut Pesto

A classic dish with an unusual twist – this pesto owes its distinctive flavour to the use of walnuts, a slightly sweeter alternative to the pine nut with a delicate bitter note.

Black Cod with Pesto Rosso

After harvest, Acquerello rice is aged for no less than one year. As a result, starches, proteins and vitamins are less soluble when cooked. The consistency of the grain is also improved, preventing the rice from becoming sticky and allowing it to absorb more flavour.

Fillet of Beef with Red Cabbage Pesto

A traditional winter side is reinvented as a pesto, its fresh flavours offering a taste of springtime.

Corn Fed Chicken Breast with Yellow and Red Pepper Pistou

The secret to the colour and taste of bell peppers doesn't lie in their variety or ripeness. Green peppers have not ripened and have a slightly bitter flavour while red peppers are fully ripened and have a sweet taste. Our yellow and red pesto impresses with its sweet, mild flavour.

Gugelhupf with Chocolate and Mint Pistou

Dark chocolate and peppermint, a marriage of flavours not just reserved for traditional afternoon tea. Why not try this sweet duo paired with a German classic – the Gugelhupf.
