Good food but very pricy

Meat restaurant in Madinat Jumeirah mall. We went to this place with friends and had dinner outside in the balcony (with view to Burj Al-Ahrab) so I have no idea about the restaurant decor. Its better to make a reservation as it seemed pretty busy. The menu was not very extensive and, of course... read more

The evening was ruined due to the poor quality staff, awful customer service and a manager who I think was the first day in the job. I dined with three other guests, we ordered starters, then to be told the soup I ordered (vegetable) was not in fact vegetable, but it was mushroom. In addition, the other three guests ordered...

Dear PJ's Review, Thank you for your feedback on your recent visit. It makes for compelling reading but allow me to paint a an alternative portrait of the evening in question. You entered our restaurant and immediately set about verbally abusing the young girl at our front door for absolutely no reason, nearly bringing her to tears. Upon sitting down... More

We went here after a visit to the beautiful theatre in Souk Madinat. I have to declare at the outset that we wanted a light meal and stuck to fish. Starters: Boerewors, excellent, though I'm not a fan of the cornmeal steamed cake. The fish was all good, but the chilli jam streaked around the salmon is way too sweet.... More

I have visited The Meat Co many times now. I enjoy going back there for the good food, good service and good views. The restaurant sits in Madinat with a backdrop of the Burj Al Arab. If the weather is cool enough try to request a table on the decking to watch the Arbas sailing past.

Ordered burgers for lunch two differing types. This place is over priced and varies from average to good depending on the dish U prefer. My burger was just that ok. It just wasn't great. There's many better local steak or meat restaurants in Dubai. It's located in fashionable area of Dubai the madinat souk and has views of the waterways... More

we liked the outside tables and if it's too hot there are plenty of tables inside with AC. Food good but very pricy. Service fine
