As views go, you won’t find many better in Dubai. Granted, spectacular settings are ten a penny in the city, but we’re not talking about sunsets on beaches or the Burj Khalifa here: Salmontini’s view is of a ski slope. The restaurant is situated within Mall of The Emirates, next to Ski Dubai, meaning you can watch skiers and snowboarders whizz by as kids hurtle down slopes in Zorbs. Salmontini’s rustic wooden decor fits the surroundings nicely. The clue’s in the name here: expect plenty of seafood dishes with salmon a speciality (the grilled salmon with cous cous, served in a cone-shaped dosa, is a must-try), all served by friendly, courteous staff. It might be in a mall, but this is an excellent place to take friends or clients.
Open daily noon-11.30pm. Mall of the Emirates, Al Barsha (04 341 0222).
