Since its opening 2 weeks ago, I have already been to Fish Beach Taverna twice, and I am pretty sure you will find me there often. In Dubai its difficult to get excited about things because we are so used to hearing “the tallest building in the world just opened down the road!”, “The biggest shopping mall in the world is almost ready!”, “Have you stayed in an underwater hotel room?”. We are pretty difficult to wow but Fish Beach Taverna wowed me!
The setting is what makes it so beautiful, you feel like you have escaped to a Greek island for the night. The blue and white decor is simple and tasteful and the lanterns, fairy-lights and candle lit tables on the beach add a touch of magic. There is no other beach restaurant in Dubai that makes the setting quite as paradisaical as Fish Beach Taverna. Whether its for a romantic date or a girly get together, the venue is faultless and it has that beach chic casual vibe unlike most beach restaurants here which are just pretentious.
The menu is inspired by Turkey, Fish Beach Taverna has a team of fishermen in Turkey and experienced Turkish Chefs who are dedicated to serving the freshest wild, cold water fish from the Aegean Sea, the Black Sea, and the Marmara Sea. You can taste how fresh it is and the simple but beautiful ingredients give it that taste of the Mediterranean. I enjoyed the homeliness of the place, the servers were so friendly and going for a sunset meal there is unrivalled.
Dishes range from 40 AED for appetisers, to 160 AED for mains which is pretty good value for the authentic food and beautiful beach-side dining experience. They are often fully booked weeks in advance, so make sure you call ahead of time to secure your seat. You can get their details here.
