As Dubai has risen to the playground for the rich and famous, it has also risen to provide for the needs of its visitors. From five star resorts and spas to world-class shopping, Dubai has everything imaginable for a luxury vacation, including an amazing array of dining options. We’ve narrowed the search to these, three of the most expensive restaurants in Dubai, to keep you eating like royalty.
Located at the world-class Atlantis, Palm Island resort, Ossiano is, perhaps, one of the most exotic restaurants in Dubai. Featuring elegant, intimate dining with floor to ceiling aquarium tanks teeming with sea life, the award-winning seafood restaurant provides an unforgettable experience. To make your evening even more romantic, share the hot Goût de la Mar which features a large selection of freshly grilled market fish and mixed seafood served with vegetables, risotto and a selection of hot sauces.
Billed as the most expensive restaurant in Dubai, Zuma is also known for its gracious hosts welcoming guests to enjoy their wide-ranging Japanese menu served in the Izakaya-style of dining – served to share. The restaurant is located in the center of the city in the shadow of the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. Firstly, start with the Ika No Kari Kari Age (crispy fried squid, green chili, and lime). Then navigate your party through the other stages of the menu including sushi and sashimi. We recommend the Tokudai No Garlic Fuumi (asparagus with Wafu sauce and sesame). Finally, be sure to finish up with a delectable dessert.
A serene brunch setting or a sexy dinner setting, Pierchic is just that, it’s chic and it sits at the end of the pier at Al Qasr, Madinat Jumeirahon. You’re not just overlooking the water here, you’re also over it. In addition to the setting, the Pierchic – a favorite spot for couples – features an Italian seafood menu inspired by the world’s oceans with fresh catches and sustainably-sourced produce delivered daily to the restaurant.
A fun note about Pierchic, while they are not the most expensive restaurant in Dubai, they do carry the distinction of holding the world record for the most expensive pizza. The Royal Pizza, created for Dubai’s royal family, is covered in white Italian truffles, black Perigord truffles, French foie gras, and Mongra saffron from Kashmir, as well as Beluga caviar soaked in Dom Perignon, Japanese matsutake mushrooms and two full ounces of gold leaves. The cost? A mere Dh777,000 or just $211,537.94. Now, that is a pricey pie!
