“Best steak in Dubai”
Reviewed December 27, 2013 via mobile

No question about it, this is the best steak in Dubai. This highly regarded establishment is one of the most well-respected steakhouses in the UAE. So much so, that local VIPs tend to dine there regularly. On my last visit, we were seated near the Foreign Minister and his entourage, which was a singular honor.

It's in Deira, which means that it is off the dining radar of those beyond Trade Center Roundabout. This is a shame for those missing out - but a real blessing for those in the know, since reservations are easy to come by.

A highly polished performance which could not be faulted except for the ludicrous bull's horns on either side of the plate. Food and wine exceptional.

“Great Steak”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

The service was outstanding and the steak was cooked to perfection.
The JW Marriott has 9 restaurants and this was our choice while staying there. If they are all as good as this one ,why go anywhere else.

“Excellent steak house”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

Went off trip advisor for this restaurant and wasn't disappointed, decor very much like a old fashioned gentlemans club, staff very attentive, offered us complementary mussels courtesy of the chef. We had 1 starter two 7 oz fillets with seasonal vegtables, garlic mash and sauteed potatoes, bottle of water and wine which cost about £150 which is what I'd expect to pay in Dubai. Wine being about £50 or more a bottle. We were to full for a dessert, chef then brought us some complimentary chocolates in a dry ice ..a nice touch. The steak was the finest we've had and would definately go back on our return to Dubai. Hope this helps .

“Location aside, great steak”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

The restaurant has been recommended so many times by friends, that I decided to give it a go. The location is not ideal, tucked down into Old Dubai, and took over 2 hours to get there from the palm. We rang and advised we were going to be late, which turned out to not be a problem as it was a quiet when we arrived. The having walked down the various levels to get to the restaurant you walk in and feel like you are back in an old style gentlemens club/irish pub- Lots of big leather green arm chairs and the walls are covered in novel framed pictures. There are some lovely touches to the dining experiences, although the serving of an amuse bouche didn't really fit with the restaurant. Our waiter was very attentive rattling through the specials as soon as we sat down- We had to get him to repeat as it was a lot to take in. I would recommend the prawn cocktail- fabulous giant prawns and a lot of dry ice. The steaks were good- not the best I have had, but didn't disappoint.
If you are down that end of town, then worth a visit, but there are other good steakhouses on the other side of the creek that are just as good.
