Set in the fine surroundings of the Jumeirah Beach Hotel, D&A is a movable feast, depending on your mood. A lovely, intimate restaurant sits on one side, with an outdoor terrace should you feel an al fresco urge and fancy bonus views of the Burj Al Arab. On the other, there’s a terrific bar with multiple screens playing sport and proper pub-style tables to relax at. Whichever you opt for, service is uniformly excellent, while the extensive and interesting menu echoes the surroundings’ sense of this being a place to make of what you will.
