Dubai is known for its city skyline filled with innovative architecture and skyscrapers as far as the eye can see, as well as glistening and crystal clear views over the ocean and Dubai Creek, meaning that the city is not short of breath-taking and captivating views for both locals and visitors alike. For those foodies who would like to combine a good meal with a stunning view, we are going to look at three restaurants where diners can not only enjoy a delicious meal while staring out in awe at the beautiful city before them:
Ossiano at Atlantis, The Palm
With a view like no other, Ossiano at the luxurious Atlantis, The Palm hotel in Dubai will give you an underwater experience like you’ve never had before. Looking out into Ambassador Lagoon right from your table, Ossiano provides their diners with a luxurious dining experience they will never forget with its refined design, sophisticated feel and seductive charm, guests will be under its spell from the moment they arrive. While taking in the 65 000 water inhabitants who call the Ambassador Lagoon their home, diners can indulge in an array of delicious eats from the restaurant’s menu, including their well-known Sea Bass which is delicately seasoned Brittany Sea Ball laid on top of a bed of wild purple rice (alternatively known as forbidden rice, which is only seen for an Emperor) and accompanied by Provencal vegetables and basil. What’s more, the restaurant has a Daily Market Menu that consists of an exclusive five-course meal, a bar that provides imaginative cocktails and mocktails, and live music.
At.Mosphere at Downtown Burj Khalifa
Dine At.Mosphere on level 22 of the world’s tallest building – a whopping 442 metres from the ground – and experience Dubai’s skyline from a dizzy height. While indulging in a number of gastronomical wonders the restaurant’s menu has to offer its diners, guests can take in the breath taking views of the Arabian Gulf, the numerous buildings and lights below (be sure to book a window table), and the glorious coastline. On the Restaurant Lunch menu diners can expect to see and indulge in the likes of Heirloom Organic Tomato Carpaccio and Hand Cut Beef Tartare for starters, Tortellini Modena and Marran Egg Parfait for main courses, and Sakrua Strawberry Sake for dessert (although these are just a few of the many options available). On the Restaurant Dinner menu diners can choose from four different six or seven course meals. The Lounge has a more laid-back atmosphere and is tapas-based, with a range of eats to fill and satisfy each and every diner that visits – even the fussy ones!
Bateaux Dubai at Dubai Creek
Take to the water in the Bateax Dubai – an elegant, glass-encased vessel serving up gourmet cuisine in an air-conditioned setting. While exploring Dubai Creek’s waterways, diners can enjoy devouring a four-course a la carte culinary journey that includes an extensive range of drinks, as well as live entertainment and the vessel’s signature personalised service. Guests have the opportunity to enjoy this floating restaurant and all of its delights while looking up at some of the city’s innovative and eye-catching skyscrapers, as well as magnificent views of the sun set and twinkling stars above. Included on Bateaux Dubai’s menu are a number of dishes that consist of Beetroot Salad, Butter Poached Asparagus and Warm Cured Salmon to start, followed by Roasted Beef Rossini, Pan Seared Seabass and Cauliflower Cromesquis for main, and finished off with Chocolate Dondant, Strawberry Cannoli or Chamomile Peach Bar – and these are just a few of the delicious options on offer!
Enjoy Dubai and all it has to offer you while you’re on holiday in the magical city, and indulge in a delicious meal with your friends or family while looking out at one of the most incredible views.
