Let's start with the bill: around 750 Dirhams ( 204 USD or 190 Euro) for a 500 gm Chateaubriand shared between the two of us with some vegetables as side dish and two pints of beer. With those prices, the bare minimum you expect is extremely high quality. Altogether food is good, you can tell they use good quality meat,... More

Dear Andrea D, Thank you for your review. We're sorry to see that although you were happy with the food, service and atmosphere, you were unhappy with the price. We source the highest quality meat from select farms from around the world, this has an associated cost. You may find cheaper steaks in Dubai, but not at this quality, but... More

This is a tourist draw in Dubai but nonetheless has great steaks. Multiple choices are available and the small Wagyu fillet melted in my mouth. Service was good and friendly. Wine list was decent but again the steak and offering of selected meats was very good.

Dear VoxVolpe. Thanks for the great review. You are correct when you say that we are popular among tourists, but we are also popular among locals, 55% of TA reviews are from people living in UAE and other research bears this out too. We're glad that you enjoyed our food, look out for some pretty awesome developments in our Wagyu... More

Been here a couple of times, introduced by friends who live in Dubai. Can't go wrong, some of the best steaks we've ever had anywhere and great choice of wine to match. Seats outside to watching the boats go by and a very entertaining waiter

Had a lovely meal here. The service was great, the setting was very nice and the food was very good. I didn't think the food was quite as good as at Butcha in JBR, but wouldn't let that put me off going back!!
