So I got the opportunity to visit and eat at Atelier M yesterday. They have just launched their buffet brunch concept but I must say food was on-point. The venue is well situated the Marina – on the top floor of Pier 7, easily accessible by cars (you can park at the Marina Mall) or public transport.
Unlike any other lavish brunch, Atelier M does not offer a wide variety but rather focus more on the quality. To be honest, I did wish that there could be more options but everything I tasted was well-cooked and on-point. I am still craving for their grilled lobsters till now.
It is a perfect time to eat at Atelier M. You must request outdoor seating area, overlooking the marina and some high-rises. Especially if you went out on a Thursday night and wanted to chill on a Friday, what could be a better option than to relax, eat as much quality food as you could with your shades on, enjoy the cool breezes, good jazz music and get even more drunk with more wines and cocktails?
We were full on white wine that went so well with the lobsters. What made the experience even more enjoyable was the cocktail on-the-house. The staff were so nice, attentive and friendly, which truly made us feel special.
For starter, there were several options including sushi, salads, smoked salmon which came as my favourite.
For main course options, I enjoyed the juicy beef sirloin, the grilled lobsters, the grilled chicken, the pan-seared salmon as well as the Egg Benedict.
`The dessert option was fair. Chocolate cake was a bit dry but creme brûlée and lemon tart were both adequate with a balanced taste.
Besides from the food itself, I also love the ambiance and the view of this gem. They have live music with a pianist covering some of the old good songs. Jazz music was often played. A complete package!
Anyways, so ratings for Atelier M(when I rate a restaurant, I compare it to the restaurants in the similar category)
Food : 3.75/5 (quality is tip top but lack of variety)
Service: 5/5 (very attentive and friendly staff)
I barely talk about price but I feel I should add this from now on. We were on offers but normally, the brunch packages are:
- 695 AED inclusive of LP bubbly per person
- 395 AED with house beverage (white and red wines) per person
- 295 AED inclusive of soft drink per person
Much love from Dubai,
