If you’ve got something to celebrate or you’re just in the mood to eat at a fancy restaurant, then check out our list of our five favourite places to give you an idea of some of the top spots in the city.


Ready for a truly out of this world dining experience? Ossiano not only serves delicious seafood in an elegant restaurant, but it’s also situated within Atlantis’ famous aquarium so you can see the fish swim around you as you enjoy your meal. Check out the video below to see how magical the vibe can be..

Address: Atlantis The Palm, Palm Jumeirah


You probably recognise the name to this restaurant, right? Opened by celebrity chef and restaurateur Nobuyuki Matsuhisa, this notorious restaurant serves a unique fusion cuisine between traditional Japanese dishes and Peruvian ingredients. The signature dish here is black cod in miso – make sure you try it!

Address: Ground Level, The Avenues, Atlantis The Palm, Palm Jumeirah


Another familiar name, perhaps because of Salt Bae… yeah you know that guy who went viral a year ago for sprinkling salt? Well, what some might not know is that he’s owned this Turkish chain of steakhouses in 2010, and it’s now entered into the leading ranks of top quality steaks. We recommend trying the dish that you can see in the instagram video below, they serve the meat in butter and give you tons of bread to soak into it. It’s truly mouthwatering! For desert, you have to try the baklava, its a Turkish delicacy.

Address: Restaurant Village Four Seasons Resort Dubai


This restaurant is inspired by everything to do with French culture; the food, the music, the ambience and beautiful people, Bagatelle is really the kind of experience that transports you to another city. We’ve written about their popular French night before, so have a read to find out about this insane event!

Address: First Floor, Fairmont Hotel, Sheikh Zayed Road – Dubai


Another Japanese inspired restaurant, Zuma follows the traditional style of dining known as izakaya; in which all the plates on the menu are intended to be shared. After ordering, the waiters slowly bring out each dish to allow the table to enjoy their food in stages. Oh and their deserts are incredible, check out the chocolate cake below…

Address: Gate Village 06, Podium Level, Al Sa’ada St.، DIFC
