Moore your yacht at 101's dedicated quay, or wonder across the pontoon to this starry, waterside spot, located on the outer corners of the Palm Jumeirah. With views across the water, and an elevated sense of laidback and loungey, in icy blue Ibiza beach tones, 101 manages to be achingly stylish while still decidedly relaxed. The elevated bar vibe continues inside, with a broad and open space, filled with minimal but high design features such as the artfully exposed tree trunk tables. Staff have an easy, amiable way about them, that adds to the chilled tone. They also display an excellent knowledge of the menu and ability to make good recommendations. The largely European, but heavily Spanish tinged menu adds further to the delight inspired by an evening here, offering recipes in a classic Mediterranean style, unpretentiously yet exceptionally well prepared. Delicious examples, which we highly recommend include calcotada, a traditional Spanish plate of sweet caramelised onions, the seafood platter for one and the rich rigatoni with chicken chorizo.
Open daily 12.30pm-3.25pm, 7pm-10.30pm. One&Only The Palm, Palm Jumeirah (04 440 1010).
