If you're expecting to eat a good flavourful steak cooked to your style, this is not the place. I tried this place at Dubai Mall twice, the meat dish I ordered with all the added extras was disappointing to say the least, steak piece was had a thick layer of fat and hardly any meat on it, hardly worth eating...

Firstly the food here, almost everything I tasted was nothing short of Spectacular. The service was excellent, they really know their menu and are very suggestive. Steak will be served exactly right & to top it off, their mushroom sauce is to die for. Even their Mocktail Menu is delicious. All in all, your stomach will be satisfied but your... More

Close by the address hotel of Dubai. Prices reasonable. Steaks are great. Clean. Atmosphere is good and not noisy. French fries are great in the restaurant. Very enjoyable.

Hi Eat there with 2 adults and 2 kids. The food portions are large glad we didn't have starters as well. The place is in a great location but it felt like an airport departure lounge. The food was ok, serve has not a disaster but it lacked something including more customers.

This was the closest restaurant on my walk at Dubai Mall! while I had eaten earlier at the Dubai Festival City venue, this was my first to their Dubai Mall location. Nice and quirky and very Australian setting. They served a very nice and warm bread with a different tasting butter - could not figure it out from the flavours... More

Had a very succulent filet steak here, which was nicely cooked. Waiter extremely attentive and decent value also. Worth a visit.

Took some friends who were costing from Italy for dinner. Took a good 10-15 Mts for the server to get to us with a menu card. Then another 15 Mts to take our order. We ordered drinks and then their signature item the blooming onion for appetizer. Then ordered out steaks. Drinks came quickly. But the food came 30 Mts... More

Lately restaurants and steak houses in Dubai have raised their prices, especially in Jumeirah area. So, if you have gone shopping in and around the Dubai Mall, and you are hungry, this restaurant is well worth a visit. The meat quality is quite good, the service is fast and the prices really affordable. Everytime I go to Dubai I spend... More

Was there for lunch, as we wanted to have Prime Ribs. This is the second time we were told it wasn't available ......then why is it on the Menu ? Decided to have rib eye steaks instead but these were a huge disappointment being of poor quality, fibrous & tasteless. They took a long time coming & were not worth... More

Outback Steakhouse is an Australian themed steakhouse restaurant. Although beef and steak items make up a good portion of the menu, the concept offers a variety of chicken, ribs, seafood, and pasta dishes. The Company's strategy is to differentiate its restaurants by emphasizing consistently high-quality food and service, generous portions at moderate prices and a casual atmosphere suggestive of the Australian Outback.

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
