Ten restaurants for the perfect night out
Voted the most romantic restaurant in the world by Time Out in 2015, it difficult to think of a better place to take your other half than Pierchic in Dubai. Its spot on the Palm Jumeirah means that guests are treated to spectacular views of the Arabian Gulf, the Dubai coastline, and the iconic Burj Al Arab while enjoying their choice of high-end dishes from the Mediterranean seafood menu.
With a simplified, streamlined menu, the award-winning Table 9 at the Hilton, Dubai Creek offers an innovative approach to dining. Its unique take on fine dining has earned it a reputation across the world for originality and a truly personalised experience. This chic bistro is perfect for a more casual evening with your loved one.
If top-quality Asian food is what you're after, then you won't be disappointed at the Eauzone. With guests sitting down to dine by the beach and the tables and chairs situated on floating majilis, this a romantic experience like no other. The views of the Arabian Gulf and nearby pools offer diners intimacy while they pick from the selection of Asian-fusion dishes on offer.
Located on a private quay on the outer corners of the Palm Jumeirah, there is nowhere better to share some intimate moments with your loved one than 101. You can sample some of the world-class cuisine on offer under the stars at this incredible waterside eatery. Far from the stuffy, over-the-top formal atmosphere in many restaurants, 101 prides itself on its laid-back vibe and relaxed staff.
STAY by Yannick Alleno
STAY or "Simple Table Alleno Yannick'" has been devised by French Michelin-starred chef Yannick Alleno and is focused on serving simple but innovative food. There are branches in Beijing and Beirut but the Dubai restaurant gives guests something special, with its elegantly decorated interior. Several intimate booths allow diners to get the privacy they need, while the staff take service to the next level. If you or your partner have a sweet tooth, this is one not to miss as guests are treated to complimentary tasters of confectionary, and you can order dessert platters measured by the metre and half-metre.
This floating restaurant serves excellent food across a range of cuisines but all with great style. With glass walls and ceilings, guests get a fantastic view of Dubai Creek while they eat their way through the four-course meal. For an extra special evening, take your loved one to Bateaux Dubai at night as you will see the emirate truly come to life once the sun has set.
If you the view matters as much as the food you're eating, then At.Mosphere is hard to beat. Situated on on the 122nd floor of the iconic Burj Khalifa, you can choose from two different restaurants when dining 442 metres above ground. The Grill allows you select from the full range of dishes and enjoy the highest standard of service, while the lounge offers a more relaxed and intimate atmosphere and guests can choose from a tapas-style menu.
Majlis al Bahar
Take a short buggy ride to get to the restaurant at the Majlis al Bahar and guests can reserve a table right on the beachfront for the most romantic atmosphere. From here you can enjoy spectacular views of the "seven-star" sail shaped hotel, Burj Al Arab, while you dine on the casual menu of platters, tapas and pizzas.
Diners are served by award-winning chefs at the beautiful fusion eatery Zheng He's. Boasting a range of dishes that seamlessly blend modern Western presentation and traditional Chinese flavours, this restaurant offers a delectable dining experience. Its setting at the side of a canal treats diners to a beautifully simplistic view of the Burj Al Arab and the Gulf.
If you are looking to experience a culinary journey with your other half, Pai Thai allows you to discover traditional Thai cuisine. Bursting with flavour and colour, the menu is packed full of dishes to entice and excite you. Located on the Madinat Jumeirah's waterways, guests can get to the restaurant by an abra ride, offering a romantic and serene journey for diners.
