Decent steakhouse with little imagination and bags of bravado 9 Reviews
- Picture 1 of 2
Just like most other restaurants in Souk Qaryat Al Beri, Meat Co. boasts dramatic, romantic views of the Grand Mosque. But don’t let that fool you into thinking this is a place to bring the pretty young thing in your life – with bottles lining the walls on gleaming silver racks and any form of red meat presented with the sort of steak knife that’d have Crocodile Dundee quaking in his boots, Meat Co. is as macho as they come. As you might expect, the food is geared towards the ravenous rather than the discerning. Portions are huge and steaks come with criss-cross grill marks, suggesting an up-market TGI Friday’s. And that’s precisely Meat Co.’s problem – for the extra cost (their fillet steak weighs in at a whopping Dhs300) the experience isn’t particularly special, especially when you consider that you could fill up at Marco Pierre White for the same sort of money. Still, keep your ambitions simple (the gourmet burgers are more moderately priced and very good) and you’ll leave a satisfied man. And an extremely manly one at that.
