Escape from the bustling city in an instant. With a water taxi to transport you from the jetty at its sister property at the One&Only Royal Mirage in Dubai Marina, the magic begins before you even reach your destination. When you arrive, expect an intimate haven oozing an achingly-cool sophisticated St Tropez vibe.

This is the place to impress or fall in love all over again. With magnificent vistas of Dubai’s skyline, shimmering water and an open air view of the stars, this is romance at its very best.

This is a signature restaurant of multi-Michelin star chef Yannick Alléno. Expect haute gourmet meticulously created by one of the world’s finest.

The starters are some of the biggest we have ever seen. This is not the place to expect nouvelle cuisine, so come hungry or share one between two. The tiger prawn salad is a good choice to begin, without overwhelming your appetite. 

Don’t be surprised if it takes you ages to decide. The mammoth menu encompasses everything from fish to steak, pasta and specialities from the Josper barbecue. We loved the beef tenderloin served on a bed of cheesy rigatoni.

The desserts are absolutely sublime. Don’t miss the churros served with citrusy marmalade and lashings of vanilla ice cream.
