Best for Gourmets - Expert review of Reflets Par Pierre Gagnaire

Experience a tastebud revolution from the man who invented molecular gastronomy.

With three Michelin stars already under his chef's hat, French chef Pierre Gagnaire's relatively short time so far in Dubai has been celebrated like few others. As those lucky souls who have sampled the exotic tastes of his molecular gastronomy will certainly explain, a visit to Reflets Par Pierre Gagnaire is much more than eating out, it's an experience. 

Food and drink: 

Incredible. You're likely to encounter dishes and combinations you've never tried before and will leave the taste buds tingling. It's mainly French, but the menu isn't really constricted by these boundaries and many dishes change each day depending on what they've brought in. The quality is outstanding. 

Recommended dishes: 

The blue Atlantic lobster is a mind-blowing, if somewhat pricey, main.  

Ambience: 

As you might imagine, it's somewhat high class in Reflets, with plush purple seating and luxuriously, mirrored decorations. Being not inexpensive, it's mainly popular with gastro-types, both tourists and locals who return time and time again. Many people come for a one-off celebration.

Service: 

Impeccable. The waiters knowledge of the food is outstanding and will help guide you through the small, if slightly confusing menu with ease.  

Location: 

The restaurant is found in the InterContinental Hotel, part of the Festival City complex by the Dubai creek. All taxi drivers will know it. 

Price advice: 

It may be perhaps Dubai's top restaurant (it's won several awards to suggest so), but it's prices are also amongst the highest. Don't expect to pay less than 1,000 dirhams for a meal for two, and this will probably have to be alco-free.
