Where to Eat in Dubai?
Duck confit, 6-weeks dry-aged steak, truffle fries and mouthwatering sushi rolls. Sound appealing?
Pay a visit to one of the fanciest spots in town – PLAY Restaurant & Lounge. Rated as the Restaurant of the year by TimeOut Dubai, it boasts exquisite flavors of so-called Mediterrasian cuisine with breathtaking views of the Dubai skyline. Home to elaborate décor and a warm and inviting ambiance, PLAY proves that it really has the right mix of everything. Located on the 36th floor of the H Hotel, PLAY presents a bespoke and evolving menu that is quickly becoming the talk of town.
Led by the former Zuma chef Reif Othman, the venue offers bespoke fine dining experience coupled with vibe, music and class. Located on the 36th floor of the H Hotel, home to other renowned dining and night venues, the place is just minutes away from Dubai’s Downtown and Financial Center – one of the most popular tourist and entertainment neighborhoods in Dubai.
When the dishes arrive, you’ll realise just how distinguished this restaurant is. The pita surprise starter and black cod main are the biggest hits of our evening. One bite of the former and we’re mesmerised, and the beautifully prepared, rich, silky fish, drenched in a zesty citrus miso, is a flawless dish of sheer excellence and like no other we’ve tried.
Both the restaurant and bar get very busy for very good reason – reservations really are a must – and you’ll enjoy every minute of your time here. We defy you to visit and not be blown away by the experience.
Dining here is a culinary journey with some epic surprises on the way. It’s exciting and utterly original. Go PLAY, we say.
A small tip from us – don’t forget to plan your visit in advance as the venue is usually fully booked over the weekends.
