Boca - Great vibe, disappointing food

Grilled octopus

Grilled octopus

In a nutshell

Boca is a Mediterranean restaurant and bar located in DIFC. The menu is inspired by French, Spanish and Italian dishes but doesn't really offer the best of any. Although the place has a great vibe, great drinks and great music, the food is quite disappointing. Alas, I recommend you only go there for drinks and stay away from the food (unless necessary).  

the mood

Fantastic laid back vibe. Boca also has an outdoor terrace and a resident DJ playing classic hits  

the food

They offer a tapas menu with various items to share, we pretty much ordered 90% of the menu with most dishes being disappointing. Again, if food consumption is necessary, this is what you can get away with: 

- Boca mini beef burgers
- Cauliflower and hazelnut salad
- Grilled Octopus
