Dubai is a city bustling with life and taste, a melting pot of cultures and cuisines and this idea is certainly reflected in the menu of the Cavendish. The restaurant prides itself on serving delicious food with a creative twist that can only be described as the 'Dubai taste'. The Cavendish caters for every preference with a unique fusion of delicious international cuisine and the exotic elements of the Middle East. The level of care and time that goes into producing this fabulous fare is beyond measure! In fact, our Executive Chef's mantra is straightforward, anything that can be made from scratch should be - no exceptions! For cooler days, there's also a large outdoor terrace overlooking the Almas Tower - perfect for al fresco breakfasts, lunches, or dinners!

Great food, wine a rip-off

Food was sublime, but the wine is an absolute rip-off at around £9 for and inch. Outside seating area was lovely. They do an early bird menu for 3 course for 155 AED which is well worth it. Cannot fault the food.

Dear Lottepuss, Thank you very much for your review. I was pleased to see that you enjoyed our food and liked the terrace. The prices for our alcoholic beverages are regularly benchmarked against local competition and, unlike in other countries abroad, such beverages attract a high percentage of tax in the UAE, which may make them seem more expensive.

Whether choosing to dine indoors or on the terrace, the Cavendish offers a superb menu in exquisite surroundings. The food is beautifully presented, cooked exactly to your liking, and served with a smile from attentive professional staff (look out for Mollah,he is brilliant) Altogether, a fabulous experience and real value for money.

We visited The Cavendish, located in JLT, for their Social Dining night a couple of weeks ago. Offering British and Irish cuisines, the event is held every Thursday with an open buffet and a set menu. The atmosphere indoors is hush and all fine dining like. Glass windows from ceiling to floor and elegant table pieces, while the outdoors was... More

I was staying in The Bonnington JLT and popped into the Cavendish for the breakfast. Great buffet spread with all the regulars and wonderful full Irish breakfast with all the bits. The Black and White pudding is excellent. Very attentive service and staff. Great food well worth a visit. On my list to give dinner a go.

I have enjoyed the breakfast buffet on many occasions in the Cavendish during my stay at Bonnington Hotel.

We stayed at the Bonnington hotel and were looking for a posh place to spend Christmas Eve. The restaurant was not full, rather quiet even. Our 3-course meal was great. Foie gras, turkey and a delicious tradional British Christmas pudding. All on par with the reputation of this venue. We didn't have the additional wine pairing and paid around 195... More
