For real wow factor when eating out in Dubai, it would be hard to beat booking a table at miX Dubai by Alain Ducasse. This stunning spot enjoys some of the best views in the city, looking out onto the skyline and sea beyond from the Palm Jumeirah hotel and serves up an accomplished menu of fine-dining food.
Legendary Michelin chef Alain Ducasse heads up the restaurant, offering diners the chance to try his traditional French fare. These reinterpreted classics not only use the finest produce possible; they’re also presented in a truly beautiful way. Carefully considered plates might throw up combinations like marinated raw blue shrimps with caviar or pan-fried fois gras with dolce forte sauce. There are also a number of sharing plates on offer which take influence from around the globe and include things like a sea bream ceviche, wagyu beef or even a tasty twist on a classic crab club sandwich. Desserts, as you might expect, span all the wonderful French patisserie favourites, like Paris brest, chocolate mousse or lemon roulade.
To accompany the fine food is a selection of high-end wines, non-alcoholic serves and well-made cocktails as well as beers and a great selection of fizz.
Interiors are luxurious with a nod to the restaurant’s location, showcasing sweeping gold light fittings and a glitzy mirrored bar. The true jewel in the crown though, is the terrace which allows diners to eat outside on warm evenings. Enjoy watching the sun set from your spot on this expansive balcony as the last of the day’s rays turn the city peach and pink.
Elsewhere there’s a chef’s table which affords you front-row seats to the action of the chefs making your meal, or there are a clutch of private dining options should you be looking to host a party or event with top-class food in Dubai.
