Marina Social
Our cover star, and a mighty roast dinner. A restaurant backed by a British Michelin-starred chef is surely a safe bet for a tasty roast dinner, right? Right. Jason Atherton’s Marina Social serves up the Saturday Social Roast, pegged as a “weekly nostalgic journey bringing you a piece of home”. Opt for the tasty sirloin, or the extremely popular roast chicken. To finish, we recommend the warm chocolate fondant with milk ice cream. Oh, and mums and dads will be glad to know there’s also a special kids’ menu, too, which is completely free for little ones under the age of 12. You’re welcome. Dhs150 (two courses), Dhs195 (three courses), free (children under 12). Sat noon-3pm. InterContinental Dubai Marina (04 446 6664).

Love this place. Food is great and ambiance is great too. Tried the brunch 2 weeks ago and it was enjoyable with a lovely view. Recommended

Fantastic find. Great value and brilliant atmosphere with open kitchen to see chefs. Highly recommended and will be going back for the various offer nights

Walked in at 745pm didn't leave until 1045pm. The waiters were amazing but management was not really into assisting more than they had to. If I can give no stars I would.

Great food and view. Recommend Monday and Tuesday night for great value dinner and drinks

Marina Social, a restaurant opened in Dubai by Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton, was our choice for dinner with a view. The service was very professional and our waiter was patient with my before and after picture taking (as well as videos in the making) of a couple of our appetizers. For starters, we had the Goat’s cheese “churros” truffle honey, the Italian beef tomato, the Hand chopped beef tartare, and the Reblochon cheese sourdough pizza. The truffle honey was subtle, yet it suited the goat cheese churros well. The Italian beef tomato was whimsical; it looked like a pristine peeled tomato on the outside, but when you slice it open it is stuffed with burrata. Also, the waiter shows you the bottle of a 25 year aged balsamic then proceeds to drizzle some onto the tomato —I enjoyed the flavors. Something else I really enjoyed was the beef tartare. The waiter mixes the egg yolk jam with the other ingredients at your table, and finishes it off with dollops of horseradish cream. Everything was well-balanced and the end result was delicious. As for the pizza with Reblochon cheese and Wagyu cecina, the components were great together but the highlight was the actual dough which made a tasty crispy crust. For our main dishes, we decided to taste their seafood. We had the Chargrilled tiger prawns and the fish with black quinoa. You could tell that the tiger prawns were grilled because that was evident in the taste, and the sauce of the fish was great. However, what was done amazingly was the cuisson of the fish; it was as perfect as it could get. It was excellently moist but still firm —if I were to imagine how fish should taste like, this is it. It was now time to satisfy my sweet tooth. For desserts, we had the White chocolate cheesecake and the Chocolate marquise; they were both good but I preferred the chocolate marquise. I did like how the cheesecake was presented though, again with a playful gesture. However, I felt that the Salted was better than the Caramel in general. We ended the night with some drinks overlooking the water and the surrounding lit buildings.
