About
Tucked away in a hotel loading dock, on the edge of Dubai's sprawling coastline, The MAINE Oyster Bar & Grill is a seaside brasserie devoid of any pretension or gimmickry. As an expression of their North American roots, Montreal gastropreneur, Joey Ghazal and head chef, Liam Breen, are serving up a slice of culinary nostalgia for those longing for an honest dining experience. Of course no brasserie experience is complete without a glistening raw bar that anchors the room serving seafood towers, fashionable crudo and oyster galore. Boasting crowd-pleasing brasserie fare the family style menu runs the gamut from steaks and chops, to fresh fish and seafood, to pot roasts and steamers, bolstered

Midweek dinner and the place was packed; both the bar area and the dining section. Its a little hard to find being tucked away in one corner of a car park, but once inside the chic-industrial style interior seems to suit its location quite well....More

A very satisfying and tasty brunch menu on Saturdays, with very good varieties. If you're a seafood lover or a meat lover, both options are fantastic, and the vibe is relaxed and excellent.
