Michelin-starred restaurants in Dubai: reviews and merits

One of the most prestigious awards in the field of haute cuisine is the award of Michelin stars. This celebrates the originality and high quality of the prepared dishes, the setting and service, the skill and innovation of the chefs.

For those visiting the UAE, it is worth checking out the list of Dubai Michelin restaurants.

Starred establishments

The highest category is three stars, but there are no such restaurants in Dubai yet; establishments that have received two strive for this indicator:

  1. The restaurant located in a shopping center on the Palm Jumeirah island is Tresind Studio. Here Himanshu Saini is in charge of the menu, who prefers Indian cuisine. The restaurant’s hall seats 20 people, so you should reserve a table well in advance of your visit.
  2. Chef Nico Romito works at Il Ristorante, located on the island of Jumeirah Bay. Here the menu is aimed at fans of Italian dishes, offering a wide variety of tastes.
  3. Yannick Alleno is a well-known name in the industry and has three-star establishments. In Dubai, he opened a restaurant at the STAY hotel, where visitors are offered a French menu of the highest level. The establishment has a seasonal twist, offering large changes in the set of dishes depending on the time of year.

It is also worth visiting restaurants with one star, where the quality of food and level of service are at the highest level. If visitors want to try vegetarian dishes, then they should pay attention to Avatara, where the food is created according to Indian recipes. Fans of traditional British cuisine should visit Heston Blumenthal’s Dinner. It offers dishes created according to ancient recommendations.

Visitors to the tallest building in the world, the Burj Al Arab, can enjoy Italian and French cuisine at the Al Muntaha restaurant on the 27th floor. Those who prefer Chinese cuisine are invited to visit Hakkasan Dubai, which offers food created according to the recipes of Cantonese chefs. Hoseki’s gourmet restaurant for nine diners will introduce masterpieces of Japanese traditional food prepared by Masahiro Sugiyama.

Chefs and restaurants lauded for their contributions to the culinary arts

Individual awards went to Jason Atherton for his menu creation at City Social, and Chef Nobu Matsuhisa for the food he prepares at his restaurant Nobu. In the first case, we are talking about a European menu, in the second, visitors are offered Japanese-Peruvian fusion.

Restaurants Boca, Lowe, and Table are awarded a green star for using local products, introducing waste-free technologies and the skill of their chefs.
