If you never been, the experience in this restaurant will make you a real gourmand. All the dishes are nicely designed and the taste of it will make you feel - you are in paradise! Amazing cook! Bouillabaisse, black cod fillet, lamb steak - are decorated in such a perfect way. Service is also on top! They have different language... More

The ambience in the restaurant is very good, and the aquarium is unrivalled. So, if you want a place with a good theme and a lot to look at then this is good bet. However, the chef isn't quite as good as he thinks he is. Plenty of talent, but hidden behind considerable self importance and wasted effort on a... More

Came to this restaurant with my family a few weeks ago, while visiting Dubai for the first time. I made reservations about 3 weeks in advance and requested to be seated next to the aquarium. When we came we were escorted to a seat farther away even thought the restaurant looked pretty empty. We mentioned that we requested an aquarium... More

We wanted to experience Ossiano for our last night at Atlantis before leaving for the UK and having eaten at Nobu and other fine dining in Dubai in the past had very high expectations for our visit. Upon arrival we were greeted by name and immediately offered the 'standard' half board menu as we were guests at the hotel but... More

Probably once in a lifetime kind of experience. I was invited to this place as a guest in a conference so my judgement will be free from the expenditure which I did not incur. Grand experience to see the least, thanks to the place being surrounding by an aquarium(underwater) on one side. The food was cooked to perfect and was... More

As for me I can't rate this place a perfect for gastronomy. Maybe I was unlucky but to have Only hummer (risotto I don't take into account ) for nearly 185 CHF which was cooked with very strange, salty tomato sauce I found a bizarre. Besides i had to ask to make a correction with tableware. And First time in... More

Nothing quite like this place. We did the tasting menu at 5 courses and all the food was fantastic. The service was exemplary and nothing too much trouble to change things around. The matched wines worked well. But the standout feature is the endless gazing at the active and quite huge aquarium. Simply breath-taking and given the whole experience something... More

Visited here one evening. One of the most amazing venues to dine in. Food was to the highest level. I have dined in a number of michelin star resturants and this is very close to gaining one. Only criticism is serving a lobster salad on something that looked like a floating fishbowl. Really not needed the food itself is exceptional.
