Ossiano is one of Dubai's most famous restaurants owing to the fact that it's surrounded by a giant fish tank. Residing in the spectacular Atlantis Hotel, guests of this underwatre fine dining restaurant can enjoy a seven, nine or 11-course Mediterranean meal while watching sharks, stingrays and hundreds of other species of fish swim right past you. If you are visiting Ossiano for a special occasion, you can even arrange for one of the hotel's skilled divers to deliver a message through one of the restaurant's viewing windows (though this must be arranged at least 24 hours in advance).
Enticing dishes include the likes of oysters, Alaskan king crab, langoustine, poached blue lobster and black cod, while the gourmet caviar menu also features some of the best quality caviar options in the world. To finish, the cheese trilogy or sweet escape - which should satisfy any sweet tooth - are well worth a try.
Décor-wise, there is a strong underwater theme with pillars in the shape of seashells, chandeliers that look like water droplets and coved ceilings. Furniture is kept fairly minimal as there are lots of other exciting things to focus on at this restaurant. Live music performances also take place on selected evenings, adding another dimension to this one-of-a-kind experience.
The restaurant, headed up by top chef Gregoire Berger, plates up food in the most stunning of formations. Combining food and art, this meal is sure to make it on to your Instagram grid, along with photos of the unique surroundings, of course.
Ossiano is located in one of the most famous - and Instagrammed - hotels in Dubai so whether you're lucky enough to be staying there or just visiting one of its world-class restaurants, be sure to soak up every second of the luxury experience that awaits you and your party.
