There’s sad news for seafood lovers, as The Atlantic Dubai at Souk Al Bahar has closed its doors.
The restaurant – which had prime views of The Dubai Fountain – was shortlisted in Time Out Dubai’s Best Seafood Restaurant at the 2018 Restaurant Awards, so we’re sure the city’s foodies will be sad to see it go.
Specialising in fresh fish, oysters and seafood towers, the restaurant opened 17 months ago hosted a weekly brunch as well as ladies’ nights and dinner deals, and food was always top-notch.
There’s no word as yet to what’s replacing The Atlantic, which was run Solutions Leisure – the team behind Lock, Stock & Barrel, STK and Inner City Zoo, but we’ll bring you more news when we get it.
“The decision to close The Atlantic Dubai has not been an easy one to make, and comes only as a result of the bigger plans we currently have in play at Solutions Leisure,” said Paul Evans, Group Managing Director and co-founder of Solutions Leisure.
“We have had a tremendous year and a half of business, and wish to thank all those who have been involved, visited and supported the restaurant. The future is very bright, and while we are sad to close one door, we are looking forward to the next one soon to open”.
The team also has a brand-new STK opening up at Address Downtown this year, as well as other plans in the pipeline.
The restaurant is the latest in several top eateries to close down this year, including Jean-Georges Dubai, which shut its doors just yesterday (Monday April 30).
China Grill also made a sad departure from Dubai’s dining scene to make way for Asia De Cuba at The Westin Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina.
We also said goodbye to Loca 2.0 at Souk Al Bahar.
However, already this year we’ve welcomed Hotel Cartagena at JW Marriott Marquis Dubai, as well as a whole host of restaurants at La Mer, d3 and at The Dubai Mall, including Katsuya by Stark, which opened last week.
