Gault&Millau names Dubai’s five best restaurants

Restaurant guide Gault&Millau has awarded high marks to five Dubai fine dining establishments. The winners were honoured at a gala event at the Burj Al Arab Hotel. The three-cap and four-cap ratings were awarded following anonymous research by a team of independent experts.

Ossiano at Atlantis The Palm was named restaurant of the year – it received high marks: four caps for the Gault&Millau UAE Guide 2023 rating. Chef Gregoire Berger’s team, known for its unique culinary approach, managed a score of 17.5.

Burj Al Arab Resort’s Al Muntaha Restaurant, which serves French cuisine with Italian flair, also received four caps and 17 points in the ranking. Three caps were awarded to L’Atelier du Joël Robuchon, a French restaurant in DIFC, and Ristorante L’Olivo in Al Mahara at Burj Al Arab Jumeirah (15.5 points), an Italian establishment famous for its seafood.

Indian molecular cuisine restaurant Trèsind Studio led by Himanshu Shaini at Nakheel Shopping Centre was awarded three caps and 15.5 out of 20 points. Shaini himself was also adjudged the guide chef of the year for making people look at Indian cuisine in a new way.

Gault&Millau is a guide created in 1965 by restaurant critics Henri Gault and Christian Millau in France. It rates restaurants on a scale of 0 to 20 points, with 11 to 20 being awarded ‘caps’ of one to five. The atmosphere, quality of dishes, service, wine list, quality of food and knowledge of staff are evaluated. The best restaurants in the world are awarded 19-20 points.

It is worth recalling that the Dubai Food Festival, which runs until 7 May, is a gastronomic festival with an exciting programme of events and culinary experiences in Dubai.

Over the past 10 years, the number of restaurants in Dubai has grown from around 5,500 to 13,000. During this time, a wide variety of dining concepts, pop-up cafés and restaurant courtyards have emerged.

Visitors to the tenth Dubai Food Festival can expect culinary masterclasses from celebrity chefs, oyster-dressing lessons, cooking classes for children, tasting dinners; exclusive set menus and price reductions at Dubai’s top 50 restaurants; the Etisalat Beach Canteen food court, where you can taste dishes from local establishments, and much more.
