We like the elegantly styled interior of this polished destination: the stained glass, crisp white tablecloths and dark wood evoke a high-class yet casual approach to British dining. In the daytime the venue feels a little dim – the lack of windows means no natural light, which is a shame when the sun is high in the sky. Still, the friendly, ultra-professional staff make up for it, remembering each and every detail of guests’ reservations, thoughtfully offering newspapers for solo diners and engaging in a little casual conversation to break the ice. The business lunch menu offers either two or three courses of varied fare, with a handful of options for each course: there’s a nice mix of seafood, meat and veggie choices, from light bites to heartier Brit food. Soft drinks are also included in the price, making this a good-value way to sample The Ivy’s signature dishes. If the set menu options don’t appeal, there are also a couple of sandwiches on offer, served with chips or salad. On our last lunchtime visit the place was buzzing, making this a lively, popular place to seal that deal and you’ll be in an out within the hour.
Business lunch Dhs120 for two courses, Dhs150 for three, including soft drinks. Served Sun-Thu noon-4pm. Jumeirah Emirates Towers Boulevard, Sheikh Zayed Road, www.theivy.ae (04 319 8767)
