From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2010The Atlantis hotel is renowned for its superlatives: the biggest firework display, the priciest party, the most famous whale shark. And Seafire could well be the largest steak restaurant, with a cavernous interior housing hundreds of guests and staff. But in this case, bigger is not necessarily better. The huge venue feels characterless, and the food, while very pleasant, is not as spectacular as the adjectives on the menu would have us believe. As you’d expect from Atlantis, the resort has certified Australian cattle especially bred for Seafire. The menu also boasts classic seafood and pricey wagyu. The steaks are tender, juicy and nicely cooked, but they lack that burst of flavour that would make them sparkle – that is, until the fries come into play. Chunky, fluffy and coated in a film of tempura batter, these could well be Seafire’s claim to fame: we’d rate them among the tastiest chips in Dubai. It’s just a shame the rest of the restaurant can’t quite reach the same heights.
