The Hilton’s self-proclaimed Mediterranean restaurant is, in fact, a bit of a mixed bag when it comes to cuisine type. You’ll find South Asian vegetable pakoras and Chinese wantons listed under starters, for instance, and English fish and chips and Arabic shish taouk among the mains. It’s for this reason that the menu reads more like one you’d expect when ordering room service, although we should add that the standard is, as you’d rightly expect, somewhat higher. Dishes such as the baked cod with smoked mash and the grilled jumbo prawns served with your choice of side are decent. Look out for the venue’s frequent buffet and drinks deals.
Open daily 7am-midnight. Hilton Dubai Creek, Baniyas Street, Deira, www.hilton.com (04 227 1111).

We have used this restaurant on our last four visits to Dubai. Excellent menu, staff and service. The one Dirham drink deal on Mondays and Wednesdays is very good value, and the red wine I had was very passable. See you next year. Special thanks to Javeed brilliant service from this gentleman as normal,

Came here last night. After taking orders, warm bread rolls were brought sans butter or anything else to go with it. Pinacolada took time in coming and when it did, it wasn't with pineapple as ordered but a red coloured one. To thier credit the took it back and brought the correct one.
For starters, we had mushroom and garlic soup which was good and another dish as starters made from ham, tomato ans cheese which was OK. Mains were. Chicken (?) confit with ratatouile and lamb roast. Both were bland and needed to be augmented with the salt and pepper. The portion were relatively smaller than the price suggested.

I had expected more bang for the money but got only a whimper.

Had been there last year and had mussels for starters which turned out to be a mountain of mussels rising above a bed of soup made with Guiness. Very nice. The accompanying 2 slices of bread were dry, as though they have been left exposed for too long but were put to good use by diping them in the soup, which was high on salt. Main course was 2 slices of Haddock on a bed of mashed potatoes. Was an average affair, though after the salty starters, this one appeard slightly low on salt.

White wine(or red wine, gin, whiskey,etc.) for only Dhs.1/glass on Mondays & Wednesdays. The white wine(Stanley) tasted better than the wine I had at Verre, the other Gordon Ramsey fine dining joint across the corridor.

The price was reasonable considering it's a Gordon Ramsey experience. The starter and main course with 3 glasses of wine on a Wednesday night cost Dhs.163 all inclusive whereas a similar 2 course fine dining experience at Verre across the corridor with a glass of wine put me back by Dhs.462.

The ambience was downmarket and it looked like an attempt to make Gordon Ramsey dining affordable to more people. The service was very good and attentive with no unwanted interruptions.

All in all a satisfying experience where I would like to visit again.

I found this restrauant to have the ambience of a coffee shop and the food was poor. I felt cheated by the promotion for the Dhs10 drinks promotion.
I would definately not be going back.

I recently went to the Glasshouse for a big group dinner with friends and we had the best time. It was also quite refreshing to visit another part of Dubai!

We went all out and had starters, mains and desserts all of which were absolutely fantastic and quite a delight to see a significant change in the menu as I have been going to the Glasshouse for quite some time!

Thoroughly recommend this restaurant to all

Wow I can't believe that last comment!! Sounds like somebody is trying to get rid of the competetition, if you ask me! I have been to the Glasshouse a number of times over the last year and I have to say it does nothing but get better!! Keep up the good work guys!!
I'm looking forward to my next visit.

Very good food, fantastic service and great drink deals on a Monday and Wednesday. We have been several times including brunch and found it to be one of the best restaurnts for value and deals in the city. Why is it not listed inthe time out recognition awards?
