Costas Spiliadis opened his first Estiatorio Milos way back in 1979 in Montreal - since then it has become a restaurant brand recognised around the world for outstanding seafood. Spiliadis has done more than anyone to introduce the world to Hellenic hospitality, as well as the finer side of Greek food and wine, and his latest restaurant in Dubai proves to be one of the most luxurious yet.
Estiatorio Milos embodies the Mediterranean in design as well as on the menu. This beautiful restaurant has indoor and outdoor areas, and a large portion of the restaurant is al fresco, with stepped terraces leading down to a tranquil pool. There are covered outdoor areas as well, and many of the indoor spaces are flanked by glass walls, providing stunning uninterrupted views of the Arabian Gulf no matter where you are in the restaurant.
The menu is built on a foundation of outstanding Greek seafood. There’s a wide array of freshly caught fish on the menu as well as Greek wild oysters, caviar, langoustine and lobster. Fish are prepared in a wide variety of ways - from whole-grilled and salt-baked, to raw, cured or chopped into zingy ceviches. Estiatorio Milos features the best of the best in terms of ingredients, whether it’s elevated traditional dishes like tzatziki, pure Aegean rock salt or Greek olive oil from centuries old Koroneiki olive trees. There are also Milos classics on the menu here, from huge Carabineiros scarlet prawns, served with a shot of sherry, to the Milos Special - a deftly-balanced tower of lightly fried courgette and aubergine, with keralograviera cheese and tzatziki.
You can also walk into Estiatorio Milos for a drink if you choose - the bar is open until late every evening and is well-known for serving a wide range of gin and vodka martinis alongside an extensive bar menu of cocktails and spirits.
