We had a fabulous meal at Rare. The steaks were very good indeed, and the appetisers also very good. Serving staff were extremely helpful and the overall ambience was enjoyable. We were able to find some reasonably priced, and good, Sicilian red wine to go with the food. However this was the third attempt as other wine selections were "out of stock".
Desert Palm is a short drive from "downtown" Dubai - about 20mins. We had no difficulty getting there. However, getting back was a different issue. We asked the hotel to arrange a taxi whilst we had a night-cap, but this failed to appear even after the second drink. Eventually the hotel was embarrassed into providing its transport to bring us back to town where we arrived about two hours after finishing dinner. Clearly this won't be an issue if you are a hotel resident.
