From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2008

Photos of sporting ‘legends’ greet you as you walk into this golf club eaterie, but the food is slightly off the mark. The crab cakes make a good starter, with a sweet chilli and mango dip to quench the fiery taste of the crunchy deep-fried fish.

The wild mushroom and asparagus feuillette isn’t quite as top notch, with its exterior a little cold and its filo pastry soft rather than flaky. But it’s the steaks you come here for, and whatever you choose you won’t go far wrong. Every cut, whether it’s an 8oz US Angus ribeye or the 8oz tenderloin, is torrentially juicy, slicing as easily as the butter accompanying your bread.

Home-made french fries and garlic mash are included, but other vegetables or side orders are extra. After all that you’re going to be quite full, so don’t worry about desserts like the apple crumble, which can be a little over-sweet. Worth mentioning is the daily earlybird deal – Dhs170 per person for starter, 8oz steak main, dessert and half-bottle of wine from 7pm-9pm.

This is my second visit to Legends as our evening meal was so good we had to try the brunch, which did not disappoint. We had a superb afternoon with spectacular food, quality drinks and great views. The variety of food was spot on, where our whole group felt their unique tastes were adequately satisfied and the staff could not have been more helpful. I would highly recommend giving it a try and we will go back again soon.

What a difference two years makes! My return to Legends after a long absence was superb. The restaurant has been overhauled to a very high standard, it is classy but has a very warm comfortable feel. Floor to (very high) ceilinged windows make for great views on both sides of the restaurant, as the previous drapes have been removed. In good weather having the possibility to open the whole side of the restaurant onto the terrace will be spectacular. It is run by an attentive and friendly French manager, and the staff are certainly capable and well-trained. Another recent Legends restaurant manager (also French, ex manager at Le Classique) is still there in a higher management position, and the influence of these two ladies has clearly improved standards significantly. To the food: a seafood chowder was elegantly presented but also filling, and was extremely good, my ribeye was the cheapest steak choice on the menu (organic-fed and Wagyu are available) but the taste and texture were just superb (and I do eat all price ranges, at JW Steakhouse, Rib Room, Manhattan Grill, etc. regularly, so I can comment). The menu is compact but good; as well as regular-size starters, the choice of three mini-starters from a large range is an excellent modern touch. The wine list has a large inexpensive selection. It’s a shame that the piano player has gone, and the music playing was a bland Buddha Bar type which sounded the same when we left as when we entered, but I was assured that that playlist would be discontinued. The place seems currently underused, discover it now. The entrance to the Creek Golf and Yacht Club is right next to the end of the floating bridge, so no scary trips into darkest Deira are needed, for any wilting Jumeirah violets!

If you are a true steak connoisseur then this is without doubt the best steak in Dubai bar none, no one else even comes close. To top it all the service is impeccable with knowledgeable well spoken and friendly staff plus of course its famous setting on the creek golf course next to the creek. Plus going here you won't break the bank and a free bottle of champagne for every 1000 Dhs spent ensures you will be back again and again !
