Once a popular hangout, Glasshouse has struggled to fill tables of late, save on Mondays and Wednesdays when the punters make the most of unlimited Dhs1 drinks while they enjoy a minimum two-course meal. Though the decor is in desperate need of an overhaul, a timeless menu offers consistently well cooked and presented food. Though not particularly exciting, simple mains such as baked fillet of cod and lamb rump taste good, and are well matched with their accompaniments – though it’s worth noting they’re expensive and a little on the small side. If you like a preamble to your meal, you can’t go wrong with the rich and tangy tomato soup. As diners can be few and far between, the service is impeccable, friendly and personal. If you’re looking for a decent mid-week meal near the creek, Glasshouse is recommended, but those who prefer to eat out on weekends should wait until the restaurant expands its portfolio of daily deals.
