From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011
Festival City has spawned an large selection of restaurants, spanning an international range of cuisines. It’s a shame then that Outback doesn’t do more to set itself apart from every other burger/steak/meat outlet. It does benefit from a veranda but feels not quite at the heart of the mall, as opposed to those downstairs. Service is quick and efficient, as it should be when there are few customers, but it’s all pretty standard offerings. Starters included deep-fried shrimps, (with a coconut batter adding an enjoyable sweet touch), soups or salads and mains offer the usual cuts of reasonable steak. There’s plenty of choice and a special ‘Joey’ menu for the under-10s but, although the names cry Australia, there’s little real Aussie fodder on offer. Desserts are large but few – there’s a choice between a warm brownie, cheesecake and a peanut butter cake, which was more like a cheesecake when it arrived – but were the most tasty of the courses. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with Outback, but there’s not enough to make it stand out either.
