4 five-star restaurants on Sheikh Zayed Road



Bistrot Bagatelle
Style: French/Mediterranean
Thought dancing on tables had no place at a fine-dining restaurant? You’ve not been to Bistrot Bagatelle. This achingly cool bistro in the Fairmont is Bagatelle’s eighth venue and what an eye-popper it is, with its funky soundtrack, flower-covered walls and giant canvases of the Incredible Hulk peering over you as you devour the most delicately delicious tuna tartare followed by the sensational lobster linguine. The waiters and shape shift amongst an increasingly raucous crowd, and don’t miss a trick. Now that’s service.

Catch Dubai
Style: Seafood
She swam all the way from Manhattan to get here and she’s been welcomed with open arms and mouths. Diners at Catch in the Faimont, are greeted with a laid-back vibe thanks to low-key lighting and cosy, brown-leather booths, transporting them to NYC’s Meatpacking District. The signature crispy red snapper is deserving of its fame, and those preferring their dinner from turf not surf will love the rack of lamb with pomegranate jus. The buzzy bar will ensure you stick about all night. Consistently popular.

This dimly-lit H hotel gem, thrice named Caterer magazine’s Restaurant of the Year, is as stylish as it is laid back.

Kick off early with aperitifs or extend the evening with a night cap at the bar.
