“5 star dining 'down the golf club'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

I have eaten here a number of times both before and after the revamp... If I have one criticism is that they should send the waiting staff to serve in the spike bar or cut the fairways, as they were very simply abysmal the last evening we ate there. However, that said, nothing can take away the work that goes on in the kitchen to deliver first class cuisine time and time again. Even with the poor service this still gets 5 stars!!!

“Good food, great price!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

A pleasant dining experience with an exceptional selection of food options and wines on the Gourmet night. Not fine dining, but good restaurant food.

A little out of the way too, can be a wait for a taxi.

“Knocks spots oh all other 5 star restaurants in Dubai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

Last week I had the best dining experience in Dubai for several years. I attended the gourmet evening in Le Classique at Emirates Golf Club and WOW! The French chef Francois, pulled out all the stops. From perfectly cooked seafood to delectable duck and lamb dishes the entire menu more than exceeded expectations. The fussiest gourmand would have trouble picking out any faults here. The Gourmet night allows diners to try a range of dishes and wines. The waiters always hit just the right note: attentive without being intrusive. The food itself was perfectly presented, seasoned and balanced. Other 5 star chefs should visit here to see what 'old school' brilliance tastes and smells like. The only reason I think that this isn't the top restaurant in Dubai on Trip Advisor is that it seems to be frequented older couples and not the pretty young things of Dubai, who are more inclined to share their experience online. But you know, this suits me just fine, as I can get a table easily when I visit again real soon.

“Easily the best in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

If you can get in to weekly Gourmet Night at The Emirates Golf Club, I think it's Tuesdays , then you will be in for a true dining fantasy. The selection of foods and complimentary wines is as good as any fine French dining experience to be found in Provence or Lyon. Starting with fois gras poele and going through the scallops , prawns ,salmon and on to pastas, game and carvery, the choice was endless but yet immediately available .
Suggest try this experience before Chef Francois moves back to his native France.
