Pierchic Fish Restaurant
Area: Jumeirah Beach, Dubai
For many, Pierchic fish restaurant is perfect. Firstly, there’s the fabulous location, on stilts in the middle of the sea just off the coastline – to get to it you have to walk over an impossibly romantic wooden pier.
Once there, you’ve a choice of view, especially if you manage to reserve a table on the Pierchic terrace: uninterrupted ocean, Burj Al Arab, or a panorama of the beautiful Madinat Jumeirah resort, with its lit up wind towers.
As for the food, the mainly fish and seafood cuisine is generally much praised, and many think Pierchic is the best fish restaurant in Dubai. Try the corn and crab risotto, the poached trout or the ever-popular sea bass and you won’t go away disappointed. However, your wallet will be considerably lighter at the end of the night, and the drinks prices can raise eyebrows.
At the end of the day, though, the award-winning Pierchic fish restaurant is hard to top for lunch or dinner, and its location and views make it one of the most atmospheric venues in the city.
