This undeniably romantic venue, perched at the end of a wooden pier that juts out into the sea, benefits from a glittering view of the Dubai shoreline at night and an air of exclusivity. In the cooler months, dining on the outdoor terrace should be your only choice, as the panoramic views make less of an impression when seated indoors. Nonetheless, it’s a chic interior with lots of wood, oyster-like light fittings and a bar area, but with limited space between tables don’t expect too much privacy. The small menu is almost exclusively made up of seafood choices, featuring well-executed gourmet dishes such as tuna tartar, seared scallops, grilled or pan-fried fish and lobster, along with one or two meat, poultry and vegetarian options. Does the food match the view and slick service, and does it justify the high prices? Well, perhaps – yet Pierchic should still impress and serve as the perfect backdrop for any romantic or special occasion.
Open daily 1pm-3pm, 7pm-11.30pm. Al Qasr, Madinat Jumeirah, Umm Suqeim (04 366 6730).
