To arrive in Ossiano is to enter a world of mesmerising tranquility created by the captivating ocean life of the Ambassador Lagoon. The experience is coupled with the delight of dining in an elegant seafood restaurant awarded "Best Seafood Restaurant 2013" by TimeOut Dubai and "Best Restaurant" at the Middle East Hotel Awards 2013. With its style and sophistication, Ossiano is the perfect location for an intimate dining experience, offering spellbinding views of the Ambassador Lagoon and its 65,000 marine animals.

I was always very sceptical about fine dining in Dubai until I have visited Ossiano in May, 2015.The setting is mesmerising! One can spend hours just gazing at all the different fish species, leisurely passing by behind the glass walls of the Lost Chamber Aquarium. But once the service starts you can forget about the fish, food is simply amazing!... More

A must try in Dubai at circa AU$650 minimum per couple for a single course, this includes AU$10 bottle of wine at AU$300 and a bottle of water. Free bread, free canapés, free sorbet, free after dinner chocolates. The main included: 2 × halves of a 500gr lobster, 6 pacific muscles, 6 king tiger prawns, 2 small crab claws, 6... More

The view is simply the best part of this resteraunt and is genuinely worth every penny! If you are like me and my boyfriend we don't like fish so lamb was our only option on the menu! Which is understandable but a good job we like lamb :) we got lots of free courses but they where always fish &... More

An outstanding restaurant. The service and food was exceptional. We were delighted with our evening at Ossiano. The hot seafood option for couples to share was delicious, this was recommended by Junel our very attentive and knowledgeable waiter. We were served a delightful selection of amuse bouche between courses and to end the experience we had the strawberry and basil... More

You cannot beat the atmosphere and service of Ossiano. It is a stunning restaurant with wonderful, friendly staff. My lobster and scallops were overcooked which ruined the experience for me, and I did expect better for this 6 star location. Would I return, yes. But only with my husband or friends who would like to see the indoor aquarium.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel concierge as a fine-dining seafood experience, along with a number of other fine-dining options that we visited during our stay. This one was by far the greatest disappointment. The "underwater" setting of the restaurant was a nice idea but came off as more of a Disney-world restaurant, replete with bright lights,... More

We ate here whilst staying at Atlantis, this restaurant isn't included into the half board but decided we would splurge out on one night to celebrate my birthday. The food was exceptional we all went for the Ossiano experience menu, it was round about 690AED each but was definitely worth it. This included a 5 course meal which was all... More

Very impressed with the restaurant. High quality food and very attentive service. Very unique way to celebrate birthdays by having a scuba diver coming to the aquarium window with a note.

We ate here whilst staying at Atlantis. Does not come in as part of the half board, had to pay full price as they don't supplement it. All I can say is wow, fantastic food, service and view. We had the seafood sharing platter for mains, it was quite a lot to eat and all tasted great. Would definitely return... More
