Overlooking the golf course at The Address Montgomerie Dubai, which is lush green by day and artfully lit by night, Nineteen boasts a delightful terrace which, weather permitting, is the best setting for enjoying the delightful meal that is likely to come. Classic European starters such as steak tartare are a great call. However, opt for one of the menu’s ‘add-ons’ (which they recommend adding to some mains) such as a trio of scallops as an entrée, and expect to find yourself devouring some of the best, yet most simply-cooked, seafood around. Mains, such as perfectly moist spatchcock chicken and richly marbled steaks are every bit as successful, and if you’re likely to have room in your belly, the ratatouille is a must-try side. Despite the consistency in the kitchen, service between tables can be a little haphazard, and due to the popularity of the terrace during cooler months, it can feel a little crowded, but these are mere quibbles. All in all, it’s a great, peaceful location for unwinding with a superb and none-too-pricey meal.
