Just returned from the amazing Emirates Palace and this restaurant is still my favourite ever!! Service fantastic friendly welcome and food amazing!! Just a pity it was low season so all restaurants we visited were quiet. However we celebrated my 60th birthday and it was truly special.Would not have wanted to go anywhere else!Can't wait to go back.

The kids stayed on the half board menu, but I had to have the lobster Thermidor, and oh my god - it was delicious! Again drinks aren't included in the half board plan - so be wary, a coke is almost £10 But the food is first class

Nice ambience, professional staff, delicious seafood mesmerising and meet your palate. They surprised you. We chosen seabass in crusted seasalt with that much salt but the taste is not salty at all.

This is definitely the best seafood restaurant I have ever been to. From starters to desserts all was excellent! The most surprising was spaghetti carbonara with seafood ☺ I cannot find words to describe how good it was... I trully recommend!

I have had dinner here many times over the years and the food is always outstanding with excellent service. The menu has changed several times, but the food is still imaginative with inventive creations. We were there during the lobster special and I had the lobster risotto which was outstanding.
