We had the Truffle Festival menu. And it tasted like airline food. Michelin star??? Not near the level. And we have visited many in NY, Paris, Copenhagen, Madrid etc. Staying with the air-plane metaphor, the service was far slower and disengaging than that of an airplane hostess. Paying more than 500 euro for a menu with sliced truffles on top... More

joined their 'Autumn Gold' dinner - a special set dinner. it was amazing. it was quite pricey, as I expect you could expect in this hotel, but the food and service. the special secret however is the patio which has a fantastic view over the Dubai fountain. its worth going to the restaurant just for this. very happy we ended...

A wholeheartedly warm staff is ready to escort you through a tipical Armani-reflecting shopfloor with a mesmerizing optical game. Eventually lights are too weak. Food is respectable and served on time. Probably the food display is too minimal and aseptic. Overall A great experience especially the dining o on the terrace. King for a Day.

Went there last night with my other half for a Pre-Opera meal (250AED pp for 2 courses). From start to finish they nailed it! Possibly one of the best dining experiences I've ever had; service, ambience, quality of food elevates this restaurant into the top league.

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.
