Time Out Says

With floor-to-ceiling windows looking into Atlantis The Palm’s aquarium, Ossiano oozes “will you marry me” vibes (we’re being serious – don’t be surprised if you witness a proposal, it is our Best Romantic Restaurant 2020 after all), and its swish setting isn’t let down by the food, with the majority of the menu being super-fresh seafood.

However, it’s not just about getting hitched at Ossiano, the restaurant is perfect for any date night. You’ll be led down a lavish spiralling staircase to an enormous underwater dining room. The mood is simply charming.

Expect to be greeted with lemongrass-scented towels, stands to place your bags on and napkins even changed from white to black to match your attire. The service, attention-to-detail and luxe extras are second to none.

Seafood takes centre stage here and, as you’d expect from a restaurant of this standing, the ingredients are some of the finest on the planet with oysters, Alaskan king crab, rainbow trout and caviar, razor clams, Hokkaido scallops, lobster and black cod on the menu.

You can either try one of Ossiano's carefully-curated set menus or dine à la carte.

All the dishes come artfully presented and everything is excellent. Don’t fill up on the delicious freshly-baked sourdough and churned butter, as hard as that may be, as portions are more generous than you might expect, and with the prices you’ll want to do them justice.

A lobster salad is delightfully fresh, while Hokkaido scallops with confit potatoes and a truffle emulsion is moreish. For our mains don’t miss the caramelised black cod with homemade linguine and the catch of the day, both of which are both impeccable.

It’s without a doubt among one of the pricier places in the city, but if you’re looking to dine out for a special occasion – or looking to impress a special someone – Ossiano is well-worth the visit.
