Located on the top of the iconic Dubai Opera, the contemporary brasserie adds a dash of fancy to your afternoon meal. Priced at AED135, the business lunch includes a starter, main and a side dish. Our advice is to begin with a refreshing watermelon and feta salad or sashimi fish salad before diving into a main of meat balls glazed with tomato sauce or soft shell crab sandwiches or the fish of the day which is great when paired with a side of charred broccoli or a garden salad.
Price: From AED135
