Shakey service but excellent food

Dined here at beginning of June whilst staying at the Atlantis. I must admit that the service was that bad in taking 40 minutes to get me a drink (serving others that had arrived after us first) that I almost walked out. However I persevered, and only for the fact that the sharing main course of... read more

Food is very good but the portions and prices are too rich for my pay grade. Restaurant prices on the Palm Jumeirah are expensive due to Nakheel taxes, but Ossiano takes pricing to a new level. Just not for me.

My wife and I had our final evening of what has been a wonderful holiday and it just added the final touch to everything. Apart from the wonderful peaceful ambiance of being underwater the food and service was as good as any we have had elsewhere in the world. The restaurant has a new chef and while the a la... More

Ossiano was known to us from a previous visit at the Atlantis but we had not been able to go due to the restaurant policy regarding minimum age for children so this time we were eager to sample what was on offer. We chose the Chef's menu with seven courses, which on this day was based on lobster, and enjoyed... More

We are guests at Atlantis, The Palm, Dubai and booked a table at Ossiano. We were accommodated on short notice with a nice table. When the manager realized there was a table that would be available that was next to the aquarium, he offered it to us. We were already seated with our wine, etc. We moved to the new... More

This is one of the Dubai hotspots when it comes to top restaurants, so we had great expectations! Started off the evening at the restaurant's bar which is the only area of the restaurant which could do with an improvement in décor as it does not have anything which makes it stand out. The cocktail selection is OK, but we... More

We went to Ossiano for a birthday celebration. Although we didn't get a table right next to the aquarium - because we booked just 1 week ahead of time, yes 1 WEEK - the view was still amazing, the dim lights and the blue shadows from the ceiling-high aquarium complimented each other so well. The singer has a very nice... More

Fantastic service and setting however the menu was disappointing with only 4 seafood mains and so expensive - had my 10 year old with us who does not like fish and only choice was a £100 steak . Need a more varied menu and a reality check for kids
