An upmarket and smart restaurant with views out across the hotel’s beach club. If dining early you have the option to sit outdoors and enjoy the views. Inside the restaurant has soft atmospheric lighting, and stylish leather chairs. Hunters has a good range of steak from France, America and Australia, but it’s the variety of appetisers that provide a distinct point of difference, and keep you lingering over the menu. The starters include creations such as beef and eel with avocado and soy, pumpkin salad, and a warm rich foie gras with apricots, the starters are delicious but the portions are touch generous if you want to have room for your steak. Once you’re ready to move on to mains, there is equally as much variety if you want to stray from the grill and sample dishes like beef bourguignon, gnocchi and salmon. The staff go to great length to ensure you understand the steak cuts. The fillet mignon from Australia was soft and flavourful and the truffle fries are an indulgent side that are well worth a try.
Open daily 7pm-10.30pm. Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina, Jumeirah (04 399 4141)
