About PR

A freelance travel and motoring writer and photographer since 2004, living in UAE since 1999 (Al Ain!) Paolo Rossetti has published over 200 articles in The National, Gulf News, and Khaleej Times, as well as Arab Wheels, Middle East Car, Top Performance, and Wheels magazines. This love for cars and travel has taken him on an amazing journey of discovery in the UAE and Oman - and in this blog, Paolo wants to share his knowledge of great places to visit with you, just like numerous good buddies have shared their stories with him. Paolo is sad to hear of UAE expats (and nationals!) who spend their weekends bored in malls, when he knows there are awesome adventures to be had if only people knew where to go. Check out the photos and you will be astounded - is this really in the UAE? You betcha! On this website Paolo provides a lively travel article on a monthly basis, with description, photos, route, GPS file, and even a Google Earth map for you to follow at your leisure. It's free of charge because Paolo is not motivated by profits but by his admiration of the UAE and by helping you make the most of your stay in the UAE, be it a few months or a lifetime. To adventures!

Weekend Dining at Zsolnay Restaurant in Pécs, Hungary

In the beating heart of the Zsolnay Cultural Quarter, just to the east of the city of Pécs, is an establishment of fine dining of excellent value and sophistication – the Zsolnay Restaurant.


The Quarter itself is sited on the premises of the historical Zsolnay porcelain factory, and is currently a lively mix of entertainment, academics, and cultural programmes – and, of course, the restaurant!

The food is divine, beyond expectations.

As is the pristine silver service – impeccable.

The creativity with which the Executive Chef dreams up the seasonal menu is perhaps the pillar of this restaurant’s success; but, having an owner who is also a reputed Chef is certainly a plus!

Additionally, besides the delightful and well-appointed premises, the forethought to make available also two large private dining areas, and the flexibility to cater to personalized requests, such as halal menus, are a sign of the care offered to guests.

With the daily ever-changing menus, the seasonal Chef specials, and the à la carte selections, there is surely a dish to suit everyone’s taste.


And the desserts: simply exquisite!


A culinary crown on the head of the Zsolnay Cultural Quarter, and indeed the entire city, one must experience a meal or two at Zsolnay Restaurant when in the vicinity!
