On The Wood opened a franchise outlet in RAK. After first testing some of the food, I took a closer look at the place and noticed several of their marketing slogans hanging on the wall. And indeed these slogans go right to the point: “The oven is the heart of every bakery” and “Love at first mankousche” (I really loved it!).
On The Wood has a somewhat special concept, combining Italien and Lebanese cuisine. And while I didn’t yet check the Italien part of the menu (i.e. the pasta and the pizzas), all in all the impression was quite good. So I can definitely recommend that you give the place a try.
Compared to other Lebanese restaurants the prices might seem a bit high (a manakish costs up to 24 AED), compared to other Italien restaurants the prices are fairly moderate (a pizza costs from 28 to 49 AED).
The interior is that of a typical franchise outlet, which is ok but nothing noteworthy. For my taste the music was too loud and added to the slightly uncomfortable atmosphere.
See www.onthewood.com for the menu. (They haven’t added RAK to their website, but the menu seems to be the same in all UAE branches.)
Note: There is no outlet on the Airport road, as some maps show erroneously.
