“Romantic”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Definitely THE place to make a proposal as quiet as you can while having the light from the Ambassador Lagoon Aquarium falling over your table. Kids under the age of ten are not allowed and make sure you don't drop a fork, knife or spoon down as you will hurt everyone's peace of mind. The food is great and the word edesma is hiding behind some of the chef's delicious plates.

“Eating with the Fish”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

An excellent top quality restaurant that we couldn't fault. The food was a delight. Prices are expensive but at the end of the day you get what you pay for. Service was great. The bar was good too...great Mojitos.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

This is a beautiful place with an impressive infrastructure and an impressive cuisine. I had the Chef's menu and it was simply splendid from A to Z. Impeccable service too. I will not hesitate to go back there when I am in Dubai again. And dear fellow reviewers: This is a 3-Michelin Star establishment. Moaning about the price in such a restaurant is simply ridiculuous...

“An amazing meal in an amazing setting”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

I've always wanted to eat in dinner in an 'underwater' restaurant and had very high expectations of Ossiano.

My expectations were met and even exceeded. The service was great, the setting was spectacular and both myself and my wife found the food to be exceptional.

I've had a lot of seafood in my time from many restaurants all over the world and Ossiano was far and away the best.

It wasn't cheap, but if you want that kind of service & quality its worth it. Next time i'm in Dubai, I'll be back again...

“A fishy date”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Long before we traveled to Dubai one of the things I really wanted to do was to have a meal at Ossiano, Atlantis sitting surrounded by the amazing fish seemed just mesmerizing. You couldn't fault the attentiveness of the staff who were at your beck and call all night, perhaps a little too much attention as sometimes there seemed to be an extra person in our relationship :) Great cocktails and lovely wines. My dishes were fabulous but unfortunately my husband was less impressed with his which he rated as "ordinary" also the servings were of the novelle cusine style (small:) and as the prices were high end style (big:) this left us with empty pockets and empty tummies unfortunately. The restrooms were amazing with an array of magazines outlaid for the taking so perhaps they thought we may want to sit there a while, however at those prices I was determined to hang on to my dinner for a while :) The final bill was the same as a trip to Bali, lol and I couldn't stop thinking about what else I could have done with that money - doing some good for mankind and animals springs to mind. We did still enjoy the experience and the fish was just lovely to watch!
