Seafood in Marina Breakwater

Serving the city's finest seafood in a striking aquamarine setting (quite a contrast to the traditional marble and silk of the surrounding Emirates Palace), Sayad has earned a reputation as a top choice for a special occasion.

Dishes run the gamut, from a simple but exquisite catch of the day (steamed, pan-seared, poached or grilled) to the imaginative (yellow-tail tuna with puy lentil ragout). Reservations are essential.
