Top 10 seafood restaurants3 Comments 19 June 2011
Though shall have a fishy on a little dishy … or lots of little fishies. Or some very big fishies. Two-thirds of us in the UAE put seafood on our plates at least once a week. But where is the best place for fish fans to order their favourite dish? Here is Time Out’s top 10 seafood restaurants in Dubai …
Pisces: Even from its Madinat Jumeirah frontage, Pisces has a stylish air and inside doesn’t disappoint either, with a seaside blue colour scheme and soft music. There’s also a scenic outdoor area, protected by palm trees and within smelling-distance of the steakhouse below for meat lovers. Service is excellent; waiters will efficiently brief you on both the specials and any missing menu items, and answer your questions with enthusiasm – rare in Dubai. So what of the food? The pumpkin soufflé is an interesting concoction, an overwhelmingly egg-based appetiser served with mushrooms and goat’s cheese on bread, while the clam chowder boasts balls of caviar for added zing. Of the mains selection, try the swordfish, although you might want to go easy on the accompanying risotto, it's on the right side of rich. The salmon trout with lobster ravioli and vanilla parsnip purée impresses diners the most: it's a well-presented tower of the fish with lobster ravioli and a moat of sauce. You'll clean the dish in record time. One of Dubai’s superior fish eateries; Pisces is a place you’ll leave with a sailor’s smile.
