Restaurant Review: Le Classique at Emirates Golf Club, Dubai
Le Classique, Emirates Golf Club

Tableside preparation is a quintessential part of old school-style, French dining and Le Classique does it with flair. After a trio of beautifully plump scallops, which were slightly translucent in the centre, it was time for the main event. It was dinner with a show as flames rose from the lobster and beef fillet surf and turf (terre et mer). The lobster was firm and buttery next to the tender meat, and the simple stock reduction ensured the individual flavours of the meat and seafood weren’t overwhelmed. While side-order veggies are seldom inspirational, the broccoli was so well cooked it’s worth a mention. The second act came in the form of crepes Suzette, which we ate al fresco overlooking the 18th green. Prepared with a smile right in front of us, they were the ideal mix of sweet and citrusy with a light texture. Don’t worry about playing into clichés of French cuisine and go all-out with the onion soup and foie gras terrine – you won’t be disappointed. The rhubarb and vanilla compote against the richness of the liver is a delicious combination of flavours that leaves you wanting more. Le Classique is a must for your next romantic rendezvous.
