If you’re keen to dine with sand between your toes, book a table at Fish Beach Taverna (+971 4 511 7139). With a rustic Mediterranean feel, this restaurant is on the water’s edge at Le Méridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina and is amazingly atmospheric at night.
In the ever-so-stylish Jumeirah Al Naseem you'll find Rockfish (+971 4 432 3232, which does a mighty fine line in crudo - the yellow fin tuna with black truffle is particulary good. As is the salt-crusted sea bass, a main dish to share with a side of sautéed potatoes and wonderful sea views.
At Le Royal Méridien Beach Resort & Spa, Geales (+971 4 316 5550), a spin off from the London location, showcases a great range of fresh catches on ice backed up by a menu of comfort food staples such as fish and chips and fish pie, as well as a rather good seafood tagliatelle, that comes laced with plump prawns and chunky cod.
