Located on the very tip of the Palm’s outer crescent, and sitting on its own private jetty, 101 Dining and Lounge Bar offers stunning views of the Marina beyond. Inside what appears to be a giant marquee, you’ll find cooling tones combined with the beauty of nature in organically shaped slabs of tree trunk and coral motifs in silver. While service wasn’t quite as exceptionally sparkling as our visit last year, staff at 101 continue to display efficiency, a willingness to oblige and a comprehensive understanding of the menu. Within the modern and unfussy one-page menu, you’ll find an overarching Mediterranean theme, with many a nod to Spanish cooking, such as the caramel sweet high-quality beef Iberico starter, paellas and dishes prepared on a josper grill. Presentation is clean and uncluttered, while dishes are prepared with sophisticated simplicity, making for an excellent dining experience.
Open Daily 12.30pm-3.30pm, 7pm-11pm. One&Only The Palm, Palm Jumeirah (04 440 1030).
