Whether you’re going on a first date, celebrating your wedding anniversary or proposing to the one you love, Dubai is not short of special restaurants that cater for each and every special occasion.
In this article we look at three of Dubai’s restaurants that we think have it all – food, service and ambiance – that are perfect for celebrating those special milestones in your life.
To Propose: Ossiano, Atlantis the Palm
Breath-taking atmosphere paired with the finest of dining you have ever experienced, Ossiano at Atlantis the Palm is the perfect place to get down on one knee and propose to the one you love. The venue is perfect for intimate dining and is an apt definition of elegance. With a menu filled with scrumptious options to choose from, Ossiana will have you both full and satisfied. What we really like about this venue, and why we think it is the perfect place to propose, is (for an extra fee) you can arrange for one of the hotel’s skilled divers to deliver a personal message to your partner – even a proposal! This will make a lasting impression on your loved one and will be a moment they will never forget.
First Date: Bateaux, Bur Dubai
You’re more than likely to make a great first impression when taking your date on this floating restaurant. Standing out with its sleek exterior, Bateaux was built in Paris and boasts glass walls and a glass ceiling to give those on board the ultimate city-viewing experience. The restaurant offers daily dinner cruises, perfect to impress your date on your first time out together, that depart at 8.30 pm with a delicious four-course European menu that offers a seafood, chicken, duck and lamb options with polenta and fennel as some of the accompanying sides. You have to order before you set sail, which give you lots of time to get to know each other while seated and waiting for your food, and soak in your surroundings as you sail past many of Dubai’s breath-taking sites and structures.
Wedding Anniversary: Segreto, Souk Madinat Jumeirah
If you’re looking to wow your partner on your wedding anniversary with an elegant show stopping dinner, book a table at Segrato. Known for being one of the best Italian restaurants in Dubai, Segrato has a show-stopping menu with lots of Italian delicacies to choose from, including Wagyi beef carpaccio, King Crap and Mazara res prawn salad, Paccheri pasta with seafood and poached Lobster. What’s more, you can enjoy spectacular views of the Madita’s waterways while you dine alfresco, or you have the choice to enjoy your romantic dinner in a quiet corner where it will feel like just the two of you.
