At The Palace Downtown Dubai, the Executive Chef Steve Deconinck has a magnificently inventive soul. The hotel itself has a Arabian-inspired lobby, complete with central water fountain and the fragrance of exotic flowers in the air.

Enjoy the Palace cappuccino, which came complete with Connoisseur’s 24-carat gold leaf (starting from £1.95 for 1 sheet) and four scrumptious, perfectly chilled macaroons.

All beverages should be served like this.
