Impressing the cool culinary customers in Abu Dhabi is no mean feat; yet Marco Pierre White, who was the first British chef- and one of the youngest at just thirty three- to earn his three Michelin stars, has done just that. This is the Abu Dhabi gastro-spot where deals are done, celebrities entertained (Stevie Wonder dined in MPW during his recent visit to Abu Dhabi and adored the chocolate mousse) and family members spoilt. Although primarily a carnivore’s dream, even the most committed vegetarian will be disarmed by the dramatic ‘flame’ wall, cosy club-like decor and tempted by the grill-tastic aromas wafting through the venue.
FYI: Prince Andrew was the guest of honour at the opening of Marco Pierre White Steakhouse & Grill
Signature Dish: Cornish crab cake, American Angus tenderloin with truffle cream sauce, warm sticky toffee pudding.

Carnivores will adore the comfortable, 1960’s style interior of the 18 Oz steakhouse; all understated dark leather, high-backed chairs, polished wooden floors and blue banquettes. Many a business deal is celebrated, sealed and discussed during power lunches in this upmarket yet friendly gem whilst the night time crowd tends to be of the livelier variety. The massive plaque-style menu (that resembles the ‘genuine leather’ tags on shoes features signature dishes which boast US Angus beef but non-beef eaters are catered for with smooth lobster bisque, juicy Australian lamb chops, Normandie corn-fed chicken breast and jumbo prawns. Only the truly brave - or ravenously hungry- should attempt the mammoth 18oz offerings but even if you do, make sure you don’t skip a side of sweet potato wedges.
FYI: The Guinness World Record for the longest steak is held by Jean-Yves Renard (France) and a group of butchers who produced a steak measuring 27.68m (90.81 ft)  long at Evron, France on 14th May 2002.
Signature Dishes: Burgundy snails in mushroom spinach cups, oxtail espresso with Barolo, 12oz tenderloin with bone.

Abu Dhabi’s first steakhouse is still going strong and providing stiff competition for the young pretenders by upping the ante on the carnivorous dining scene. A discreet gentlemen’s club ambiance envelops you in its comfortable cocoon; think forest green chairs, loads of leather and dark woods with a dramatic wine wall a much-photographed added design feature. All the usual steakhouse suspects are served up expertly; plump Louisiana crab cakes, crispy on the outside and bursting with meaty flavour inside, Parmesan puff pastry encrusted traditional onion soup, U.S. Angus beef and certified Wagyu from Australia.
FYI: The originally Spanish term ‘rodeo’ was first used in English over a century ago to refer to a cattle round-up. Today the word is used primarily to refer to a display of cowboy skills, usually in the form of a competition.
Signature Dishes: Tijuana style Ceasar salad, 250g grade 9 fillet steak, chocolate soufflé.
