Dubai has so much to offer – from its high-end fashion boutiques to picturesque beaches to a buzzing nightlife scene. But what is probably the best part about Dubai is its wide variety of restaurants. As with everything in Dubai, your culinary expectations will be exceeded – especially when it comes to seafood restaurants. There are many hotel restaurants in Dubai serving delicious seafood cuisine. We profile a few of the best restaurants guaranteed to make you feel like you’re tasting a whole new world.
Atlantis, The Palm houses some of the world’s grandest restaurants. Ossiano is an award-winning seafood restaurant that radiates luxury, style and elegance. The purple-silver themed restaurant with its lavish crystal chandeliers and the smooth sounds of an in-house vocalist certainly sets a mood of luxury and indulgence. Diners enjoy breathtaking views of the Ambassador Lagoon and, if that doesn’t mesmerise you, the marine life in the floor-to-ceiling aquarium certainly will.
Recently awarded the Best Romantic Restaurant in Dubai 2017 Time Out award, visitors from all over the world appreciate the charm and splendour of this luxurious restaurant.
Ossiano is the epitome of fine dining, with dishes inspired by the sea and infused with modern Mediterranean flavours. Succulent seafood dishes, full of flavour, like Olive Oil Poached Salmon, Crispy Scallops, dill beurre blanc and Canadian Lobster are a must-try. Meals are well-proportioned so as to leave some room for the hard-to-resist desserts. Each delicious dish demonstrates superior culinary skill you won’t find just anywhere.
Refresh your palate with a lemon and basil sorbet – best complemented by one Ossiano Bar’s signature sparkling juices.
One of the world’s most famous seafood restaurateurs, Chef Nobu Mastuhisa, has perfected the art of making unique Japanese dishes complemented with South American flavours. Nobu’s signature is to flawlessly balance traditional Japanese cuisine with the daring, aromatic tastes of Peruvian food. The menu is abundant with tantalising seafood and Japanese dishes that never disappoint. Delight your taste buds with Yellowtail Sashimi with jalapeño, Lobster Quinoa Ceviche, charcoal-grilled Lobster Hobayaki and the famous Black Cod.
At Nobu, the contemporary decor is as cutting-edge as the delicious dishes served here. The interior of the restaurant is decorated with bamboo, giving it an authentically modern feel. Choose to dine in Nobu’s Garden sanctuary, a magical and tranquil setting that will transport you to the Zen gardens of Japan. There’s no wonder why Nobu at Atlantis, The Palm is popular with celebrities. It is undoubtedly the best Japanese restaurant in Dubai.
