The Grille

An atmosphere of exclusivity reigns at stained glass-ceilinged The Grille, so you almost feel like you have to whisper and tread lightly across the thick carpet. There are spectacular views of the golf course, but there’s an unshakeable sense that The Grille should be better, particularly as it seems to take some earnest pride in itself. While the 250g tenderloin is served as a fine-dining dish, and its cost (Dhs190) hints at a desire to play with the big kids, unfortunately it fails to keep up the illusion. The parmesan truffle fries, on the other hand, are sure to be the highlight of every meal, and we can’t recommend them highly enough. Chunky and rich with a hint of truffle oil, they’re addictive. All in all, The Grille’s greatest shortcoming is not the fact that the food is rather hit and miss, it’s that it’s far too expensive for the quality, which only adds to the disappointment.

if the people doesnot know how to eat steak,
they should learn first to eat,rather then to blem chefs,
or if they have any other problem with the property or they are writing
with any other reason,they should know their words are going to effect
some one whom they dont know also,
indirectly they are just making their self stupid,

i am sorry but its really hearts me a lot,

Just remember it is a golf course restaurant, but-
the food and service was fine and the rib eye medium rare US beef
was spectacular. veggies on the side were fantastic and we really had no complaints. an exceptional dinner.
