    went to the very new Dubai Downtown branch at Adress Hotel. Very newly opened. Staff numbers are high. Delightful ambience and overall setting BUT the food was a desaster. Cold, clearly not fresh and asked for what kind of fish is served it was in all cases Hammour. Dips a complete disappointment. At the table all agreed that this was the last visit. Sorry, but in the competitive environment in Dubai, it has be better ...

    We were at the restaurant last night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I practically ate nothing the entire day, looking forward to gorge myself on the seafood .... was unfortunately disappointing!

    The shrimp bucket was cold by the time it got to our table, and was served alongwith our appetizer.
    The crab bucket was ok, not great ... but the lobster bucket was a total disappointment. The lobster was clearly cooked sometime earlier and was simply re-heated on the grill and served .... We know our seafood as we live on the coast. The supervisor denied saying "everything is served fresh" but knew better. I simply stated I could accept the platter.
    Good thing is he promptly took it away and did not charge for the lobster - which was a commendable customer service gesture.

    would I go back again? .... Certainly not if I'm paying!

    Although it has a great Decor an Ambience, the food is not great, what makes it overpriced.
    You can find much better Seafood around Dubai.

    We visited Aprons & Hammers last night, after wanting to go for a while.
    What a disappointment... We were served by a "pushy" waitress who told me she was bringing my crab pot with the provencale sauce "as i would like it".... I explained that I had crab a lot & just wanted it plain with some melted butter but she was persistent, and I ended up with a pot of sauce that I did not touch..
    The clam chowder was average, but the crab pot was so overcooked that the meat all came out as mush & was a funny brown colour, making it impossible to dip in any sauce. My partners main (a kind of seafood stew) had so much flavouring that he couldn't taste the seafood.....to top it all, both of us have woken up with what i shall describe as "dicky tummies".
    The cheapest bottle of wine was 200 dhs.
    The bill came to double what we would have spent should we have gone to Red Lobster where the crab is cooked so much better & the staff dont push you to have what they want....
    Best seafood in Dubai??.....actually the worst i've had so far, even seafood served at brunches where they don't claim to specialise in it far surpasses the quality of Aprons & Hammers...Don't waste your money.
