Unless you are a Dubia expat, you would never know this venue exists, situated with its entrance in the Hilton basement car park, you enter to a vibrant atmosphere and a terrace to enjoy in the cooler months. Oysters are varied with a dozen different...More

Excellent place for a night out with the girls, the boys, a romantic date, a catch up group. It's all here. Try the espresso martini's they are delicious, and of course the Oysters are fantastic, like taking in the entire sea.

Maine is a class apart, literally one of the best restaurants in the country and one of the best seafood places around. Their platters and mixed seafood grills are to die for, and their drinks menu is second to none. It's a pricey place, so...More

The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was
no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs
along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of
luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the
marina hosts regular community events and markets, and
is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or
evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers
glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next

A very satisfying and tasty brunch menu on Saturdays, with very good varieties. If you're a seafood lover or a meat lover, both options are fantastic, and the vibe is relaxed and excellent.

Tucked away in a hotel loading dock, on the edge of Dubai's sprawling coastline, The MAINE Oyster Bar & Grill is a seaside brasserie devoid of any pretension or gimmickry. As an expression of their North American roots, Montreal gastropreneur, Joey Ghazal and head chef, Liam Breen, are serving up a slice of culinary nostalgia for those longing for an honest dining experience. Of course no brasserie experience is complete without a glistening raw bar that anchors the room serving seafood towers, fashionable crudo and oyster galore. Boasting crowd-pleasing brasserie fare the family style menu runs the gamut from steaks and chops, to fresh fish and seafood, to pot roasts and steamers, bolstered by a slim unpretentious wine list. The long-bar at The MAINE attracts an eclectic crowd of young urbanites downing good old-fashioned cocktails by the bucket. Blending a post-industrial design aesthetic with a laid-back New England extravagance, the retro-vintage feel pays homage to the immortal charm of the state whose slogan justly proclaims 'The Way Life Should Be'.
