Patio

On a calm, cool night, Patio might seem like the Le Meridien's best dining option, thanks to the excellent eighth-floor view of the city skyline.

Snacks galore are offered here, but it's worth checking out the desserts, which basically come from Favola's kitchen.

Panna cotta, comprising soft, smooth almond custard cream, fruit minestrone, a sugar veil & orange wafer.

Illy Coffee-inspired tiramisu. Good, but not as great as the first time we had it at Favola. Somehow, the spark seemed missing.

Lemon ricotta cheese cake with raspberry sauce. Creamy and crumbly.

We liked the gelati, which would rank among KL's top 10. Nevertheless, the flavours we had were fairly unadventurous: straciatella, tiramisu and rum & raisin.

Blazer (a potent concoction containing cognac, grand marnier, orange, sugar & angostura bitters) & Mojito Limpio (a lame mocktail).

Check out www.lemeridien.com/kualalumpurdining for updates on the hotel's monthly promotions, many of which are very tempting.
