Launched in 2001, the awards celebrate the achievements of the hospitality and entertainment industry in the UAE. The winners are voted for by the public and this year for the first time people were able to cast their votes for their favorite restaurants and events online.
In the last eight years, more than two million people have cast their votes, successfully creating a system where winners are determined by positive customer experience.
Commenting on the restaurant’s victory, restaurant manager, Luca Gagliardi said,
“this year marks our first win in this category, we are truly honored by this recognition. The polled awards represent a vital popularity yardstick for the city’s restaurant industry; they effectively represent the voice of the customer.”
Luca added, “as new restaurants join the culinary landscape in Dubai, it’s great to know that we are recognized for our consistency in delivering excellent cuisine, engaging service and a memorable experience for our guests.”
Since it’s opening in 2001, Verre has won 14 prestigious industry accolades for excellence in fine-dining, including consecutive wins at the 2005 and 2006 What’s On Awards, in the ‘Chefs Choice’ category. The restaurant was also honored as the “Best Contemporary European Restaurant” for a third straight year at Time Out Dubai’s 2008 Restaurant Awards and was noted as the “Best Restaurant in Dubai” in 2006 and 2007 Time Out Dubai awards.
