‘Masculine’ is the first word that springs to mind upon entering MJ’s: the dark wood furniture and deep red paint reinforce the manly vibe. Yet step onto the outdoor terrace and the atmosphere softens, with twinkling lights, plenty of shrubbery and views of Al Qasr’s gardens. As you’d expect, the menu focuses on steaks, chops and grills, with some high-end seafood and a nice range of sauces and sides: there are plenty of cuts and varieties of meat available, including grain-fed Angus and USDA prime options (though prices predictably rocket if you veer towards wagyu). The food is excellent, and service is efficient, competent and friendly, though on our last visit we suffered a few missteps when the kitchen mixed up our medium and medium-rare steaks. Luckily, this was quickly rectified by the ultra-professional manager, who offered us complimentary desserts to compensate. If you have deep pockets, MJ’s is a very pleasant place to spend the evening – as long as you like the colour red, of course.
