“At the top, but hard to the wallet ....”
Reviewed 13 December 2011

I have been back after more than one year, and I was not disappointed. Everything is at the top, and my oysters in 3 different versions, and the lobster of my customer, were absolutely great. But get ready to pay a price which, even if right when you deal with such cuisine, is like the restaurant always at the top.
The service deserves compliments, even if in a couple of cases the presentation of the dishes was hard to understand (I know they have to repeat it many times but they could go slower in naming all the ingredients in the food, it is part of the fun....)

“Flawless experience!”
Reviewed 12 December 2011

We visited Reflets during our honeymoon stay in Dubai, and to say that we were impressed is to say the least!
We chose the culinary Friday lunch menu (250 AED/person, not including drinks), and my husband opted for wine pairing (+140 AED). The lunch menu included 5 courses, and each of the dishes was top notch!
My husband was impressed with the wine selection - 5 different grapes going perfectly with each course.
The dessert consisted of 5 different treats, and was simply enjoyable.
The service deserves to be mentioned separately. It was prefect! The waiters were extremely friendly and polite, and never annoying. They made us feel very comfortable and relaxed.
We enjoyed our stay so much we didn't notice we spent 3,5 hours having lunch :)
I'd also like to mention the ambiance of the restaurant - I could never imagine pink and violet shades could look so stylish and not at all tacky. Of course, the restaurant looks a lot more attractive in the evening. But we still enjoyed the atmosphere during the lunch hours.
We will definitely get back to Reflets for dinner during our next visit to Dubai.
This place deserves its title of the "Best Restaurant in Dubai"!

“Wonderful decor and superb service”
Reviewed 7 December 2011

We've only visited at lunch times and enjoy the tasting menu choices (fish for hubby and cheese for me). Each individual dish is a work of art that is carefully explained by the waiter.

“A culinary journey to be sure!”
Reviewed 20 November 2011

My husband & I had a really wonderful lunch in Reflets and even had the pleasure of meeting Pierre Gagnaire himself who was visiting. The food was pretty impressive and the staff were very nice albeit very formal. It is definitely a fine dining experience-my only criticism is that we sent back one of the fish dishes as it was undercooked, so even the best make mistakes but it was a worthwhile experience and I will return again.
