There’s a reason why everyone is flocking towards this beachside arcadia! Situated at Palm West Beach on the iconic Palm Jumeirah, the Mediterranean-inspired Lucky Fish restaurant is bringing in some of Dubai’s chicest crowd, and it is easy to figure out why. The property sits right on the beach, and if you time it just right, a spectacular sunset awaits as you enjoy your cocktail and dine. This is not just your average restaurant, it boasts world-class views and aesthetics that make one feel as if you are dining in Mykonos or the French Riviera. Opulent 19th-century French chandeliers occupy the ceilings bringing a welcoming, romantic, and charming ambiance. This high-toned Mediterranean restaurant offers an authentically inspired menu from the Mediterranean region, encompassing Italian, French, and Spanish flavors accompanied by the highest quality seafood and meats. Their approach is thoughtful and artful, from their sourcing of food and drinks to their execution of plating.
The Chef’s menu invites guests to enjoy freshly caught fish over ice, exotic Italian, and finely crafted cocktails. As you make your way through the door, the catch of the day is showcased on an antique sailboat filled with ice, all caught by local fishermen. Begin with an elegant lobster salad or oysters from the raw bar. Dinner may bring signature oysters or a pink sea bream crudo topped with a lemon vinaigrette and beluga caviar. Feel the need for something not dinner-related? The all-day breakfast starts at 12 pm starring fluffy crêpes Maison topped with chocolate ganache or perhaps something lighter such as a yogurt parfait partnered with one of their signature healthy drinks.
From the moment you start following the meandering path feeling the breeze run through your hair along the Palm Boardwalk, you’ll sense that you are heading to a pretty special place. The design and venue are what bring this restaurant to greatness. Located on the beach makes for a blissful and serene dining experience, its white drapes and ornate ceiling fixtures make for a beachside dream, and as the dining area stretches from terrace to sand, it emulates the feel of a chic St Tropez Beach club. Olive trees wind through the dining room with beach flavored chairs and utensils. For your daytime beach endeavors, dip your toes in the sand or relax on their selection of comfy oversized single and double sunbeds or private shaded “shells” to detox from a long day. With fabrics imported from all over the globe and the option of luxury cabanas featuring king-sized sunbeds, a large sofa, dining table, and a ceiling fan, Lucky Fish makes for a perfect city getaway.
Take a look up at your delicious meal and look at the violently colored brilliant skyline of Dubai. After dark, Dubai sometimes seems like a city filled with lotus-eaters, forever on the lookout for a good time. Lucky Fish does not miss a beat, on top of its legendary destination, the chic restaurant offers once-in-a-lifetime parties from 2-7 pm on weekends with some of the world’s best DJs. Bounce your head, dance your heart out, and enjoy the glistening lights over the Persian Gulf. With a beautiful vista, established customers, and sophisticated tipples, this is a delightful place to watch the sun go down across the water while the skyscrapers glisten.
