Default Calling Madam Medusa and anyone who knows the Dubai restaurant scene

I'd like to get a voucher/gift certificate to a good restaurant for a pair of friends who just tied the knot. Was thinking of spending around 500-600 AED. Ideally this should cover the meal and drinks. Perhaps they can spend a bit more, but I don't want to get a voucher that requires them to spend another 200-300 AED for a proper meal.

Is Bice a decent option?

Rivington Grill was my first thought but they don't sell vouchers

Any suggestions are appreciated.

but that is way, way above his budget...

Best meal for 2 in Dubai for 600dhs inc drinks... hmmm....

Riv was a good choice
Would Bice be under 600?

Will think some more.. you'd have a lot more choices if you can stretch to 1,000dhs - Mezzanine could be done for that...

Do Jumeriah do vouchers - then they can choice from any restaurant?

frankies has gone right off service-wise bc...the last couple of times we were there, it was really dreadful...

ethos, bice is lovely, so if you can get a voucher there then great, although it may be over your assigned budget...don't be tempted to go for bice in souk al bahar, btw, it's rubbish...

if you want italian, medzo in wafi is really excellent, it's a lovely setting and the food top notch...wafi must do vouchers you could use...

how about mango tree in souk al bahar...their cheapest set menu is 250 dhs each, and with an outside table, would be fab...

if jumierah do vouchers, then you'd get a really decent meal for that money at mjs which, in my opinion, is the best steak place in dubai and again has an amazing setting, or pai thai...

nice idea anyway...hope you get it sorted...!

MM, xx

Try Samak Seafood Restaurant in Souk Al Bahar with tables overlooking the musical fountain thingy.

What about a Friday brunch at Waxy O'Connor's?

For that kind of money, they'll happily forget why they got married in the first place...........
