Time Out Says

With up close views of Burj Khalifa and a terrace overlooking the hotel’s lush greenery, The Restaurant at Address Downtown has a lot going for it. The interior is elegantly furnished and there are huge windows offering a partial view of the half-hourly shows at The Dubai Fountain.

Although there’s a The Restaurant in Address Boulevard, this second branch is not laid out in the same, slightly odd way (there are not loads of separate areas themed around rooms of the house), however the menu of classic dishes is similar.

To start 16 smaller dishes are available – including duck foie gras terrine, aubergine with labneh as well as fried calamari.

We head straight for the main courses, and can’t wait to tuck in to the linguine with black truffle and a soft boiled egg – which is evocatively named ‘The Black Truffle’ on the menu.

What arrives is pasta in a basic white sauce with a few shavings of truffle sprinkled on top. It’s all a bit uninspiring, which is a shame, and made more painful by the Dhs200 price tag.

The Angus rib-eye fares a tad better, as although it’s a bit fatty, it’s expertly seasoned.

But the puddings are where this place shines. From the dessert menu, the Eton mess is excellent, being creatively presented with slabs of meringue stacked together creating a fortress over ripe and juicy strawberries.

Dessert saves the meal bit, but there are better places in Downtown Dubai to dine.
