Time Out Says

Massive venue Atelier M has your entire night out covered, being a restaurant on the lower floor, with a bar upstairs and rooftop terrace. But the food alone is worth booking in for.

It’s simple, Mediterranean fare with a few Asian twists – think duck confit and porcini risotto, alongside Iranian saffron tagliatelle and black cod saiyo yaki. Food is of good quality and the flavours are well-balanced, but prices are a little on the high side. And while dishes may not blow your mind, you’re paying for the fine-dining setting, plus that huge outdoor terrace showing off those beautiful Dubai Marina views. So there’s method in the venue’s pricing.

To start, the wagyu beef gyozas are a good shout, the tender, spicy meat tempered nicely by the flavour of sautéed kimchee. Mains all sound delicious – if you’re indecisive, probably best you arrive early to ensure you make the right choice. That aforementioned Iranian tagliatelle is a good option, boosted but not overpowered by the earthy-sweet taste of saffron. The Chilean sea bass is another wise move. Served with grilled courgette and a citrussy gremolata, it’s fresh, zesty and full of flavour.
This is a good, if slightly pricey venue, should you find yourself Marina-side.

The bottom line
Inventive flavours at this fine-dining spot.
