This restaurant and bar is tucked away on the pool terrace of the Address Dubai Mall. It’s an oasis of tranquillity, sheltered from the hustle and bustle of downtown and, if you pick your seat astutely, you’ll be able to enjoy a drink and some decent nosh with the imperious Burj Khalifa twinkling away in the background. In keeping with its five-star address, the international menu is well executed, with the burgers, salads and steaks all ticking the required standard box. Service is also excellent, with staff occupying the happy medium of appearing when you need them without hassling or interrupting you. Attracting a handful of hotel guests and well-heeled locals, we’re a bit reluctant to share this gem with you, but it truly deserves a solid pat on the back.
Open daily 9am-11.30pm. The Address Dubai Mall, Downtown Dubai (04 888 3444).
