So the general rule is that you can take under 6’s into the restaurant however they were very accommodating and allowed us to use the private dining area.

The food was outstanding, the wine choice first class (albeit pricey - but it is Dubai) and they treated the children like they were princesses.

Shehan looked after us and was so attentive.

Well done everyone, it was a meal to remember and we’ll try to return before we leave Dubai!

The food is absolutely delicious here. In addition to what you order, the chef prepares many amuse bouche for the table that were all interesting and yummy.

The ambiance is also marvelous. Staff couldn’t be nicer, Shehal our waiter was just lovely and extremely helpful in deciding what we should eat. Good tip: the decomposed cheesecake is divine, don’t miss it!!

A michelin starred chef has an outlet in Dubai - the food must rival his original restaurant in Rome. Flavorful, surprising, and incredible attention to detail. We wandered in the first time, as we were staying at the hotel, but fell in love. We were back multiple times during that trip and future ones. One of the best (and underrated) in Dubai! May not be as showy as some other places, but a MUCH better food. Worth a trip!

... but not that extraordinary. Don't get me wrong, the food was perfect and service outstanding, but I would expect a bit more from 3 Michelin Stars. I think the dishes were missing that kind of mysterious something that makes you feel in heaven. They were simply good, and I think overpriced. They made birthday cake on my request and it was just good. With the prices they charge that should have been the best birthday cake in my life, but it wasn't. Good experience but only for one time.

Having dined in La Pergola in Rome we were looking forward to trying Heinz Beck’s restaurant in Dubai, whilst we were staying at The One & Only Palm.
We had the 7 course tasting menu with wines.
The amuse bouchée was spectacular and very tasty & so we’re the breads.
Each course was presented beautifully & didn’t disappoint in taste. The dessert was the best I have ever tasted! The matching wines worked perfectly too.
My only slight niggles with the evening were; the sommelier was a bit grumpy & didn’t really engage with us and that we weren’t given a copy of the tasting menu to take away, as they do in Rome. Small things really but would have made it a 5!
On the whole it was a lovely evening & we would definitely return.
