Rare at Desert Palm: Rare does great steak, yes, but it’s also a prime example of what destination restaurants can achieve when time and care are invested into the design. The interior is light and airy thanks to abundant floor-to-ceiling windows, but the pièce de résistance is the al-fresco terrace and the views it affords of the lush green polo fields. Very nice. Turn your attention back to the dishes on offer here and you’ll find yet more beauty – namely in the form of the rapturous melon gazpacho, pigeon, gamey guinea fowl, ruby red venison and expensive, yet delicious wagyu steak.
