World Cut Steakhouse

Ideal for a group gathering, explore a sophisticated collection of classics at World Cut Steakhouse. An elegantly designed space with natural dark woods and glamorous light fixtures, this American steakhouse serves sizeable steaks that are fast-tracked to Dubai from specialist farms. You can select your favourite cut and age from the raw display bar, and it will be cooked to your taste and liking, with gourmet sides such as truffled macaroni and cheese.

Rose and Crown

As Al Habtoor City's quintessential British eatery, this roomy venue is full of comfort food, homely charm and good banter. The Rose and Crown is a great place for locals and expats to meet up and unwind, and serves up a curated menu of classics including fish and chips, meat pies, Scotch eggs, braised lamb shank, and a 'Big Ben' burger. Enjoy the trendy gastro-lounge setting, where the food is made just right. 


BQ – French Kitchen

Located up the Habtoor Palace hotel's stunning white marble staircase, BQ – French Kitchen is a little slice of France in Dubai. An instant hit with the city's chic crowd, the restaurant serves up the best from different regions, compiling the best flavours in a single menu, such as Fine de Claire oysters, lobster bisque and apple tarte tatin. If you're looking to linger a little longer, head to the Patisserie for excellent espressos and sweet treats.

Level Seven

With gorgeously designed interiors of wood, steel and vintage art, this rustic Mediterranean eatery serves a curated collection of Spanish, Italian and Grecian dishes. Focusing on market-fresh ingredients and authentic recipes, Level Seven at V Hotel offers tapas, a crudo selection, rotisserie, and an a la carte menu for both lunch and dinner. This bustling social hotspot is the perfect place for indecisive diners, with a wide range of starters, mains and desserts available.


Zoco Dubai

The first restaurant to open in Habtoor City's Atrium, Zoco is a modern Mexican and Latin American cantina, known for its buzzing vibe. It is an urban, soulful eatery with an extravagant El Bruncho Friday brunch that has swiftly become a firm favourite for those looking to celebrate with a large group of friends. Tons of tacos and fresh ceviche are the top orders, along with their specialty guacamole, of course.


Located on the 31st floor of V Hotel, Namu's duelling chefs clamour for your favour, with both Japanese and Korean dishes on the menu. Edgier than your average sushi joint, this futuristic restaurant makes you feel like you're knocking back eel sashimi inside a spaceship, thanks to the dramatic décor and red and purple mood lighting. The restaurant's sharing concept encourages diners to try a bite or two of everything, so you don’t have to decide between the tuna belly chobap and the grilled eel and ginger maki rolls.

The City Grill

The perfect place for a South African braai-themed dining experience, The City Grill at Habtoor City's Atrium features a rich leather fit-out and an upbeat atmosphere. The restaurant specialises in a wide selection of South African barbecued treats, but with a delectable modern twist. The steaks are juicy and cooked to your liking, and come with a long list of extras to choose from, while the burgers are simply irresistible.
