Icy blue tones combine with intricate design details to create an almost subliminal sense of flame- and water-inspired aesthetics. Service is seamlessly executed, with a sense of style and theatre throughout the meal. The showcase starts as the waiter brings over a tray of steak cuts to explain the difference. Even the adventurous descriptions on the menu spark a sense of excitement akin to the theatrical curtain going up. After spotting ‘poached egg ravioli’, we have to test the kitchen on this technically tricksy dish. It’s actually a raviolo (singular), but is beautifully presented, sitting proudly among an elegant scattering of green and white from the watercress and asparagus. It’s accompanied by what’s described on the menu as a parmesan crouton, but as goat’s cheese by the waiter. Either way, it has the dehydrated appearance of loofah, but disappears in the mouth, leaving a mellow, ripe flavour behind. The raviolo is pretty special, and we’re pleased, even though the pasta could have been cooked a touch more, and the egg a touch less.
Open daily 6pm-11pm. Licensed. All major credit cards accepted. Jumeirah Creekside Hotel, Garhoud (04 230 8580).

I've just been to Blue Flame Restaurant and I have nothing but praise to the place ! I decided to go somewhere I have not been before and this was for a birthday occasion. From the minute we booked to being greeted, seated and served, service and staff were flawless. Good knowledge of the menu/wines from the staff and food was equally delightful. A little compliment by the chef that one of the staff brought to the table was an exceptional touch.
Will surely go again to the place and recommend it to others.

We dined at this restaurant last Thursday night and have to say that the steak was the best that we have had in Dubai by far. The service was flawless and the staff attentive. Highly recommended for lovers of a great steak. I can't wait to go back and sample their seafood.
