If you want a break from the traditional steakhouse with tan leather chairs and dark wood, and are looking for a touch of glamour to go with your tenderloin, then Prime 68 is the place for you. High up on the 68th floor of the JW Marriott Marquis, the world’s tallest hotel, this venue offers stunning views across the city. The venue has a circular layout so diners are guaranteed a great view from every table. The decor is light with white gloss floors, comfortable cream-coloured dining chairs and a few romantic tables for two that are enclosed with tasselled curtains. The menu offers traditional choices for steak lovers, as well as an interesting selection of other meats such as five-spice duck with blueberries and milk-fed veal. The Argentine rib-eye is sumptuous, juicy and tasty, while the ginger-garlic sauce has a hint of sweetness that complements the meat, but the steak is the star of the show.
Open daily 6pm-midnight. JW Marriot Marquis Hotel Dubai, Sheikh Zayed Road (04 414 3000).
