Guilherme ReisXodó Head Chef
Growing up in the quiet countryside outside Sao Paulo, Chef Guilherme is a master of "churrascaria," or Brazilian grilling, perfecting his craft for nearly fifteen years not only in Brazil but also in Bahrain. Here at Xodò’s, Chef Guilherme has crafted an impressive carnivore-based menu as well as non-meat options for guests.
“I grew up in a humble environment where simple ingredients were used in every home, so I learned over the years to use these ingredients and elevate them to renowned five star signature dishes. Coming from a traditional Brazilian family, most of our celebrations are centred on food, herbs and spices.”
More Dining Options
Though the poolside views of the city and the smell of fresh bread baking in the brick oven are enticing, the real star of Aura is the modern Shami cuisine, a delightful mix of Lebanese and Syrian flavours, best enjoyed at night, when the lights reflect off the water and cast a beautiful glow.
Dine with family or friends at our casual yet trendy bar, serving hot-off-the-grill gourmet burgers with an international flair. Enjoy paired with a cold beer or shake while your favourite match entertains on our flat-screen TVs.
