A meal at Traiteur is pure drama, both on the plate and in the striking 14m-high dining room and raised show kitchen, where a small army of chefs elevates classic French bistro fare into a fine-dining experience. The rotisserie duck and the seafood platter are both outstanding. The menu indicates which fish are sustainable options so you can order responsibly. Superb Friday brunch.

It's next to the Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club.
