What's the concept?
The Scene is a well-established eatery located in Dubai Marina's Pier 7. The venue specialises in British classics and comfort food but has announced a new festive menu that boasts traditional Christmas staples. The menu lets you pick and choose from a variety of festive starters, mains and deserts.
What the food like?
On a regular evening, the food here is stellar. Fortunately, nothing has changed given the festivities of the season. Old favourites are well represented here, including roast turkey (with all the trimmings, of course), as well as Christmas pudding and cheese and biscuits. There's also more modern fair - more akin to The Scene's regular menu – including liver parfait with a mulled grape jelly, and truffled brie served on toast.
How was the service?
Service is prompt and comes with a Christmas smile. The waiting staff are well-versed in the holiday menu and able to answer a variety of questions regarding ingredients and the size of certain dishes.
What's the atmosphere like?
As its Christmas, The Scene certainly hasn't skimped on the decorations. Diners are presented with Christmas crackers when they sit down, which come with pun jokes and paper crowns. It's certainly very festive, and those wishing to venture out this Christmas day certainly won't be disappointed by the amount of festive cheer on offer.
The Scene Christmas Day Menu offers diners three hours of food and free flowing beverages. Prices start at AED 375 for a five-course dinner with soft drinks and go up to AED 650 with bubbles.
