Carter’s Carter’s

In keeping with its place in the Wafi Pyramids building, Carter’s has a vaguely Egyptian theme Reviews

From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011

The first thing you see when entering Carter’s is a statue of a gold Egyptian mummy being analysed by a small English lad in a safari suit: random, yes, but it’s an ode to Howard Carter, the bar’s namesake and the man credited with discovering Tutankhamun. The rest of the interior looks decidedly colonial, and the food is classic British pub grub. Sometimes there’s a bit of a twist – leek and mustard crumble with stilton mash – but mostly it’s in the realm of fish and chips or steak. The service is sincere if a little haphazard, the food reasonably priced, the portions big and the mains perfect when accompanied by a brew; however, the ingredients don’t seem to be of the highest quality. The entrecôte steak is surprisingly small and all gristle and, while the braised beef stew comes with a lovely mash, the meat itself is just too chewy. We advise you to book a seat on the terrace for a relaxed night out, but stick to mains for food: the dessert options were nothing but disappointing: banoffee pie that was inedible and a chocolate pudding almost as tough as our steak.

When choosing what it is Carter's best for it was difficult as I go there on buisness lunches, Romancing with my husband and brunch with the children so it suits for every occassion.

Great british food served in a fantastic atmosphere!! I love this place!!
