When it comes to location, Prime Steakhouse can safely claim to be unique. Up on the fifth floor of The Meydan, it overlooks the impressive racecourse, which is one of the greenest views in the city. If you’re lucky – or just call in advance – you’ll land one of the window seats, with two huge, high-backed chairs that look out over the course, offering an unrivalled sense of privacy and comfort. Staff are well-informed when it comes to steak, offering concise information on the different cuts of meat. Steaks can be ordered by the 100g, so you won’t need to worry about over indulging, although the delicious, tender, flavourful meat does encourage that. Mini desserts, at only Dhs20 a pop, end the meal on a not-too-rich sweet note, while the extremely reasonable final bill will leave you with a smile on your face.
Open daily 7pm-11.30pm. The Meydan, Nad Al Sheba, (04 381 3111).
