I'd vote for both MJ's and Ruth's Chris. Very different, but like them both.

MJ's is good and I have always had a nice steak at the Rib Room at Emirates Towers (and the Rib Room have a special coeliac menu so it gets extra points from me for that).

In Abu Dhabi, you cannot beat Le Beaujolais at the Novotel - great steak and chips and fab prices. For a splurge, Rodeo Grill is excellent but eye wateringly expensive.

The Rib Room went down hill after a succession of chefs coming and going. It has just reopened after a refurbishment and they have a new head chef , Anna used to be the head chef at MJ's so it is going to be back on form :-)
The Agency has also moved to what used to be the ribroom bar next door.

Is this some kind of chef name dropping contest?

If you go to the Butcher's Grill in JBR and tell the head cook, Antonetta, that I sent you I can guarantee you a portion of cold chips and a wrong order. She always ensures the same for me.

Where is that then? Incidentally, how much do you guys pay for a steak meal without beverages?

In AD would agree with Rodeo grill, excellent meat. Frankie's / MPW @ fairmont also very good. For somewhere a little less expensive the steak place in One-to-One hotel is pretty reliable too.

In Dubai, Asado @ Palace Old Town hasn't had a mention and is excellent. Palermo at AR Polo Club does a steak night Monday and Tuesday AED 119 including a glass of wine, good Argentine steak.

it's in the Jumeirah Beach Hotel, not sure how much the total bill was but the steak was either 145 or 185

Too much , i think it's robbery in all of them , some of them are charging AED 250 just for a slab of beef and up to AED700 for Wagyu Beef.

You could get real Beef curtains for that money...

I believe there is a nice Argentinian steak restaurant at the Palace Hotel overlooking Burj Khalifa. Has anyone been?
