Take a trip back in time to this quintessentially English eatery

Time Out Says

Strolling through Dubai's cool and quirky City Walk district can feel more like being in the middle of England than the Middle East, with its café-lined streets complete with vintage red telephone kiosks and post boxes.

So the presence of a quintessentially English eatery harking back to the Victorian era of elegance and sophistication makes for a perfect fit.

As soon as you step through the doors of The Victorian you are taken on a trip back in time.

The walls are adorned with striking paintings from a bygone English era, while the floral-patterned furniture makes for a regal atmosphere befitting of a traditional tea room.

So far, so Victorian-era. Not to mention the music, a popular wedding march is playing. It’s all a tad unusual but makes for a very pleasant atmosphere.

Already impressed by this slice of old world culture, we can't wait to find out what tastes of England are in store on the menu.

Soft slithers of chicken liver, served with fluffy mash and a sharp balsamic vinegar, are presented with an artful flourish and the dish tastes just as good as it looks.

The traditional fish and chips is given a regal revamp. The beautifully bubbly batter encases delicious white chunks of cod and is served with tasty sweet potato chips, complemented by truffle aioli, sweet chilli sauce and excellent mushy peas.

To top off an excellent meal, it is hard to resist the rich array of decadent desserts, including a palate-pleasing Eton mess and bakewell tart with clotted cream.

The Victorian oozes class from its delightful décor through to its dishes that are befitting of any discerning diner.
