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.

Would definately return, amazing restaurant. The staff couldnt do enough for us. Food selection was great, quite expensive but worth it as a special treat, just for the view. Breath taking!

The evening began beautifully. Attentive staff. Venue is at aquarium level so that one entire wall is nothing but the sea life! Dinner. Chefs menu included tuna tartare a foil gras parfait. Lobster velouté. Confit Loch Fyne Salmon. And strawberry soufflé. The courses were delicious. Flaw when choosing wines. I think our waiter thought we was a sommelier. He was... More

As a special treat, my wife and I decided to dine in style, and where else but the Ossiana at the Atlantis Palm. Situated on the lower level of the hotel, accessed via lift or staircase, the Ossiana offers fine dining with a perfect view of the underwater world of the Atlantis Palm Aquarium. There is a dress code, which... More

Amazing! Such a relaxing evening dining with the fishes! The service was faultless and the meals incredible! Serving sizes were large and it was lovely to receive an amuse bouche and petit fours. The waiter provided an info card on the various fish in the aquarium and also had knowledge of where the fish came from. Indeed a lovely surprise... More

I suppose I have rated this on experience as apposed to food. I'll be honest I'm not a lover of seafood and I hate to say it, I pushed my food around and found it difficult to eat it so I would advise before you spend £400 on your meal as we did 2 courses, make sure you all like... More

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...
