Have been here a few times and met old friends there for dinner last week. Perfect weather for sitting outside, fantastic waiter, mouth-wateringly tender and tasty meat (particularly if you live somewhere where it is inedible!) and great wine. Other friends walked past when we had finished eating, and it was no problem to add 2 chairs and a couple of glasses. Lived in Dubai when Madinat was being built and come back every time we are in town. A bit touristy, but still a good feel - love the Arabic architecture and views. The steak prices are seriously over the top - but we'll get over it and no doubt come back again. Happy to recommend, and before it gets too hot, book early enough to get a table outside.

We were greeted by a lady who seemed annoyed that we wanted to dine there. It took us ages to convince her to seat us in the shade and then she seemed even more pissed off.no one except Kim our waiter smiled at us or was friendly. My bbq meat was grilled and then covered in sauce from a bottle. So the meat itself had no taste. The one good thing was creamy mash which was nice.

We took our family, who are visiting us, to the Meat Co at the Madinat as the location is wonderful and you really get the feeling you are on holiday. All started well, with great seating outside and a charming waiter taking our order, but unfortunately after that it went horribly wrong. My steak had to be returned as it was completely overcooked, but much worse than that, my daughter got terrible food poisoning and spent two hours being sick when we returned home and I suffered from a stomach upset. We certainly will not be returning to the Meat Co again, overpriced steaks that should have been in a bin rather than on our plate were not what we expected!

Any visit to Dubai is incomplete without a visit to Madinat. Of course it's touristy but as Micky Flanagan's wife would say - "it has ambience" and the Meat Co. certainly has plenty of ambience, especially if you secure a waterside table. We had a great view of the Burj Al Arab which looks like it's about to go in to orbit. Of course it was expensive but you don't dine with a view like that very often. Steak is a speciality and was cooked to perfection. Crab salad excellent. For those of you interested in sport they have a display of plates signed by famous hoofers of a pigs bladder...John Terry, Steve Gerrard, Lamps - also spotted a plate signed but the well-fed Mike Gatting.

We visited under recommendation from friends and were happy if not overwhelmed with the experience. The place was very busy so booking beforehand is a good move the steak was excellent and the staff were friendly. Prices were high. Would go again.
