The best seafood restaurant in town, they said... We have tasted "le gout de la mer" (in French) for checking this reputation... Fair but far from exceptional. Waiters are willing to be so smart that they are uneasy, leading to a pretty heavy mood. Live singer helping to improve the ambiance but... Drinks prices, wine or cocktail, are completely crazy...

I dined with my husband and although we enjoyed the aquarium walls and excellent seafood the rest could go really. First off the wine list was shocking...there were at least 4 of my local supermarket wines on the list that were 90-115 euro more than they are here. We just couldn't rationalise spending 90 euros on a bottle that typically... More

This restaurant is certainly about location, location, location! A great experience eating with Rays, Sharks and other fish swimming around you but you pay a premium for the pleasure! Food was the best we had in Atlantis, but very overpriced.

Nice food although not much choice for children (aged 14 and 11). We could only reserve a table for 9.30pm. On arrival we were asked to wait in bar for 30 mins before being seated which made it all rather late, particularly as we had our children with us. Overall, it was an experience being in a restaurant by the... More

Ozziano is absolutely beyond my expectation. Great atomsphere, amazing aquarium surrounding and excellent food & service would make it memorable for every traveller in Dubai. I heard some bad comments from Tripvisor about the food. But that is not what I see myself here. The chief menu we 5 ppl have at last are just fair enough for the price.... More

Lovely ambiance to the place, we even saw some man proposing to his wife by having a scuba diving in the aquarium tank that is joint to the restaurant. Downside I feel is for the cost of the food the portion sizes are small. For our holiday budget it was only a one night thing as we didn't know how... More

Ease of transportation: There is public transit to get to the Atlantis @ palm where Ossiano is located or you can always take a taxi. View and environment : Our table was next to the glass wall of huge beautiful aquarium with fishes of different species. The sharks and fishes are swimming happily and freely. It was very relaxing environment.... More

Ok the reality of is all is you are basically sitting along side a wall of a huge aquarium! Glass wall heights of over 7 meters or 20 feet. And certainly not above you. The tank is filled with, many different types of fish and sting rays, sharks and they are all very active.(due to a high current within the... More
