The Meat Co.

Steakhouse

  • The Meat Co.
If you find yourself in the touristy trappings of either Souk Madinat or Souk Al Bahar, you’ll be reassured to know that a decent steak isn’t far away. During the cooler months, the Souk Madinat branch is a lovely place to spend a leisurely evening if you can land a seat on the sprawling outdoor terrace with views of the waterways and Burj Al Arab. Inside, the restaurant is dark and bustling, with an open kitchen providing a lively atmosphere. As you’d expect from a restaurant that receives such a constant supply of hungry tourists, service is slick and professional. Orders are taken quickly without any fuss or confusion, and the presentation of the dishes is equally adept. It’s clear from the first bite of steak that produce is of a very high standard here, with an array of meaty options of different size and breed. Side dishes, however, are a little small and expensive, but this is the only gripe about an accomplished steakhouse. The Meat Co.

    A highly disappointing, grossly overpriced, poor quality steakhouse! The ribs were just that; bones generously doused in a cheap starchy sauce of questionable origin, cold one one end, lukewarm on the other and with less then 20grams of meat. @ AED60 an obscene rip-off. Upon confronting the supervisor, she claimed this was the dish and I should have called for her before eating it. There was nothing to eat. My wife`s "chili prawns" turned out to be 5 small shrimps with a large serving of rice. The two 400gram, rib-eye steaks were tasteless and depended heavily on sauce for flavor, which we had not ordered. With the fries-from-a-bag, the 5-star meal was complete. Including an AED200 bottle of Aussi red, the bill came to AED900. Thankfully we had a 2-1 voucher to lessen the pain. We`ll use the "saving" to fund the dry-cleaning bill for our clothes as the whole place is an open kitchen with poor if any fumes extraction. Never again!

    This is the fifth time that we have eaten at the Meat Co, and every time we have had a delicious meal. The restaurant is always busy and therefore the atmosphere is always buzzing.
    The staff are good fun with personalities and not stiff (as apposed to many restaurants in Dubai). They provide excellent service and create a relaxed yet knowledgeable experience.
    The price is slightly high, but matches the quality of the food. Steaks are cooked exactly how you ask for them, the mash is creamy, and the ribs fall off the bone. Everyone on our table had a delicious meal and as full as we all were, we ate the lot!!
    We'll definitely be back again.

    Nice location, but that was about it. Waiter tried his best, the lamb was tasty but not hot - I declined to send it back as the rest of the table reported their meals were 'fine' and I didn't want to make a scene. (Maybe I chose badly or it was first cooked, last shipped). French Fries were exactly that - not proper chips, but luke warm/cold soggy things. For the price, I felt this was way overpriced for what it was.

    I think the Time Out reviewer must have been having a bad day. I have read a few of his last reviews on restaurants most seem to cop his wrath. I have eaten in The Meat Co on many occasions and have found all to be pleasant. I have also tried both the scallops and the red chilli prawns and never have they come as the review indicates. The scallops come with a delicate spoon full of cauliflower puree under each scallop, and whilst the red chilli prawns come with rice, one is not forced to consume it. For some great food & service in an amazing location, Meat Co is the place to go.
