First reviewed by Time Out back in 2001 the Jumeirah Beach Hotel’s Argentine restaurant has been one of the most consistently excellent in the city ever since. Never quite bothering the top tier it has, nevertheless, been a stand out on the Latin American scene. Diners know what to expect – remarkable 25th floor views of the Burj Al Arab, excellent service, live Latin dancing and music and some of the best steaks available in the city. We have to admit being tempted by a juicy-looking Chilean Sea Bass and a Caribbean prawn dish but the massive selection of steaks is too strong a draw to make us stray. Certified Australian Wagyu with roasted root vegetables and house cut fries is never a let-down and, frankly speaking didn’t strictly need tie mushroom truffle sauce but this is the type of place where indulgence should be accepted.
Open daily 6.30pm-midnight. Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Jumeirah Road, (04 348 0000).
