101 Dining Lounge & Bar

European

  • 101 Dining Lounge & Bar
Set in the idyllic surroundings of One&Only The Palm, reachable by boat and jutting out into the tip of the Palm’s furthest reaches, 101 Dining Lounge & Bar starts winning awards pretty much as soon as you’re strolling down the jetty to get to it. Once there, the warm and unobtrusive staff and stunning decor – it’s like a sort of high-end floating shack with sail ceilings blowing in the wind out in front of you as you gaze into the deep blue distance – keep up the high standards. And then comes the food. A mix of top-drawer European, though weighted more towards Spanish, so packed with temptation is the menu that it presents a partly painful but mainly delectable Sophie’s Choice. Thankfully, coming back to try more will most definitely be on your agenda. As a start point, however, we would most heartily recommend the octopus cooked on the josper charcoal barbeque. It is, frankly, a delight. 101 Dining Lounge & Bar

    Would you go back to this restaurant?
    I have to say i had one of my worst experiences in Dubai in this Restaurant , The waiter huffed and puffed when we asked for anything , My mother ordered a drink with bitter lemon she was given tonic with with lime which had already been poured in when we said this to the Waiter we were told we wont refund this or take it back and he then walked off .I had booked this months in advance due to it being my uncles 50th Birthday , I had ordered a cake which had a males name on and this was brought to myself even after i advised who to present it too . We were also moved to the deck after our meal to have the cake . all in all a shambles ! the food was average but the service was a major disappointment . Would never go back and always tell people

    Great setting, and stunning location, but food & service were terrible. Could be so much better! Just not what you expect of such high-end place.

    Staff are not friendly and warm, but maybe that's because they're dressed in some sort of hospital uniform.

    Food was ok - starters, but all of our main courses were nothing to write home about (mussels, chicken, fish soup). Btw fish soup has no fish in it only the fish stock...!

    Mangers were walking around looking really important, but no one seamed to be interested in the guests. No one once asked us how our meal was or if we were satisfied.

    Payment was also slow and confusing.

    Leaving the place, no one said thank you or good bye which is at least what you could expect.

    When working in the service industry every day, these things are clearly noticeable. Not only to me, but to my friends as well.

    We've been going to the 101 ever since it's opened and while before we may have been going for the ambiance and location, now it's definitely the food!!!!! We've had it all and our lamb always arrived succulent and perfectly cooked and a few tapas are enough to satisfy a jolly group of four.
    Maybe a little less arrogance from the reviewers would do them well, a young chef is not good enough for you, why? A hostess who doesn't put you above other equally important guests - I'm all right with that.
    I think the guys at 101 do a wonderful job and they definitely deserve the praise from Time Out and from happy guests, me being one of them.

    We went this afternoon to 101 and it was not a pleasant experience at all. For the price they charge, the food was cold and insipid.

    Nina- the hostess who attended to us was pretentious and not interested in giving us a good seat.

    We would not be going there again and would not recommend anyone else. We agree with the previous reviews that this place is overpriced, the service is bad and the food is cold and horrible.

    This place is only good for the location, but not for your stomach.
    Go there if you want to see a beautiful end of the Palm .

    Food is really bad. Be prepared to go to another place for filling your stomach after this visit.

    Waste of money....
