This huge spot is all lofty ceilings and a palette of blues, greys, whites and golds. A buzzy open kitchen adds atmosphere indoors, or you can sit outside for amazing city skyline views. Food is seaside French brasserie-style: foie gras, escargots, baked camembert, and it lives up to high expectations bestowed upon the place from its former life as French restaurant Traiteur.
It's part of The Promenade, next to the Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club.
