Summer dining at The Summer Kitchen

Food cooked in a Mibrasa oven, delicious lazy lunches in the sunshine, and cocktails served under the stars. This is the ultimate location for summer dining

A fabulous charcoal scent fills the air as you dine, al fresco, at The Summer Kitchen. It is the aroma of meat being cooked on an open fire in the restaurant’s Mibrasa oven – a specialist closed barbecue grill that retains natural flavours while bringing out a unique taste. This makes The Summer Kitchen’s selection of meat dishes unbeatable, including their homemade burgers, rib-eye, striploin, rump, fillet, lime and harissa-marinated spatchcock baby chicken, and lamb cutlets with mint pesto.     

This meat-lovers’ menu is supplemented by so many other favourites. It includes salads such as the oven-roasted summer vegetables with Pecorino cheese and yoghurt dill dressing, or the vegan orange, grapefruit and fennel salad with olives, mint and chilli. Pizza and pasta lovers are also well served, with favourites including the tagliatelle with mushrooms in a white rabbit ragú, the tagliolini neri di sepia with prawns, crab and chermoula, and the Ortolana pizza with chopped tomatoes, fior di latte, grilled peppers, courgettes, aubergines, olives and aged goat’s cheese. 

Plus, all this is supplemented by the menu of homemade desserts (a particular favourite is The Summer Kitchen’s famed Knickerbocker glory), and truly delicious cocktails, including the Nectarine Rosemary Spritzer featuring fresh rosemary from the Corinthia Palace’s beautiful gardens. 

Barbecued meats, scrumptious pizza, pasta and salads, and fresh cocktails, all served poolside and in lush surroundings – The Summer Kitchen really promises the very best of summer living and dining.
