What’s it like: If you’re in the mood for a fine-dining experience – something I feel Dubai lacks in general, Reflets is the ‘go to’. It’s been around for a while – and you can tell (I don’t say this negatively). The team knows their stuff, and the food is flavoured, prepared and presented to perfection. It’s everything you can expect from classical French cuisine, served with manner and grace. Although the famed, 3 Michelin-starred chef Pierre Gagnaire is not always around, you’d never know. It’s a stunning venue, without the in-your-face flashiness. It’s subtle and charming (and very pink – what’s not to love?). Here for a recently introduced tasting menu, our experience begins with a selection of amuse-bouche. With each delectable course served, our sommelier ensured we were in more than capable hands. From langoustine and scallops, to foie gras and veal sweet bread, the selection was sublime. To say the least, dinner was awe-inducing, it left you guessing at flavor combinations and cooking techniques, while simultaneously feeling fully satisfied. A must try for all food lovers’.
