In a city of high-end steak venues, what can Prime Steakhouse do to make its mark? Aside from good-value, perfectly cooked steaks, this restaurant has size on its side: the impressive two-storey-high ceiling disappears up into the heavens, while curvaceous double-height windows frame the racetrack view. The menu is packed with info: as well as listing a good selection of cuts (of both Wagyu and Black Angus varieties), alongside lamb, poultry and seafood dishes. And rather than offering standard sizes, each steak is priced per 100g, allowing diners to choose a bespoke cut. The steaks themselves are a delight: high quality, perfectly cooked and yielding at the mere touch of the knife. Add to that the professional, slick service and a comparatively reasonable bill, and Prime adds up to a great new contender on the Dubai steakhouse scene.

Best. Steak. Ever! We eat a lot of it and I can honestly say that this was the best steak I've ever had... Will definitely be going back. The decor is not great...a bit dated but the staff were brilliant and the food was amazing.

I booked this place for an anniversary dinner.. and all i wanted was a romantic place with lovely steaks on a decent price.. n i was hell nervous! my husband is very picky! when we walked to our table.. the view was amazing.. we watched the moon rise in the sky.. distant fireworks at atlantis and the beautiful dubai skyline.. the seating was very intimate and cozy.. menu was customizable with very fine details and delicacies.. and the food was OMG!!!!! v were not expecting that at allll! my hubs eyes closed evertime he would place the steak in his mouth.. and my salmon was beautiful! lobster mac n cheese and garlic fries all beautiful and sooo filling! enjoyed ever morsel of it.. so much so that v even ordered dessert.. lemon tart.. though pretty i wouldnt recommend it! this place is deinitely a hidden jewel as earlier said.. and the cost! ofcourse.. we booked through round table online which provides a 20% discount on weekdays! so we rounded up in 350!!! wat a shock my hubby got when he got the bill :) definitely brings back sparks to ur life :)

When we walked in we were the only people in the restaurant, despite the fact it was 8pm on a Friday evening... and at first I was nervous about being one of 2 people in a place so large, but I need not have.
The tables are all placed to make the dinner very intimate (ours overlooked the race track); the service was immaculate and the food... oh my the food! The steak was, without doubt, the best I have ever had. I have had steak in the US, in UK and around Europe, but this place tops them all. The whole experience makes this a very special place. The prices are a little special too, but for those occasions where you want to splurge a little, or a lot - you would be hard pressed to find somewhere better to do it.

Had a fabulous evening, food and service were superb. Extensive wine list.

If you're planning on making a reservation ask for a table by the window to enjoy the view of the Meydan track.

A thoroughly wonderful evening.

I have been a fan of steak topped with foie gras and blue cheese sauce, but nothing beats Meydan's Prime Steakhouse's version. Just as I requested, I got it perfectly medium rare and truly very succulent and superbly tasty!

Thanks to the great service staff as well. The staff truly made our dining more than appetizing!

I would definitely come visit Dubai again for Meydan's Prime Steakhouse... even before the thought of Burj Khalifa and Burj Al Arab!

A very good friend told me but I didn’t believe it until a walked in to the restaurant, stunning!
It was our anniversary and we couldn’t ask for better place to celebrate, on top of that great steaks and prompt and friendly service.

Amazing all the way!!
Great food, great service and great interiors!
Expensive? Not realy compare to all the rest of teh Steakhouse in the City.

A Must!

Posted by: Celine Grey on 18 May ' 11 at 08:02

This is possibly the best steak we've had in Dubai (and we tried lots ;D)
We visited Prime twice and both times the food was excellent, service efficient and friendly and the surroundings beautiful.

Keep some space for Crepes Suzettes, flambees at the table, a delight!

Agree with all the positive comments, it is an excellent steak restaurant with great starters and surprisingly cheap deserts. The service was superb albeit we were one of three tables on the night, the staff and chef all came over to enquire if things were ok, but this never felt over the top or staged. Price wise it is high but then again where isnt these days?!! we felt it was well worth it anyway.

Best Steakhouse in Town - enough said!

Big Compliment to the staff!

Posted by: Heather on 29 Mar ' 11 at 07:15

top class food and service, one of the best steak houses in dubai - a must

Posted by: Patrick Welty on 10 Mar ' 11 at 10:16

When you walk in to Prime, the first thing you said is Wow!
When you seat at your table you feel like in a Movie.
The staff is very friendly from the Manager down to Chef that pay a regular visit to each table or at least when we were there, then Food arrive and is Wow again.
Highly recommended, yes maybe a bit expensive but all worth it.

Posted by: Gianluca Laliscia on 12 Feb ' 11 at 14:25

Yes, great restaurant!!
Maybe a bit expensive, but it's all quality.
Try to ask for Chateaubriand, Steak au Poivre or Crepe Suzette, you have to see the confidence of the service and the result, fun!!!
Excellent experience.

Posted by: Peter Smith on 08 Feb ' 11 at 05:15

One of those restaurants that no one knows, actually TIME OUT should help!!!
It’s a place that need a try and believe me, you will no regret it!
Amazing interiors, Amazing food and great/friendly service staff not an easy thing to find around the restaurants in Dubai!
We’ll be back soon.
