Restaurant award

Heinz Beck is widely known throughout Italy and Europe as a notable master of modern gastronomy and his Dubai restaurant was chosen as "Highly-commended Best Italian Restaurant" for the Time Out Dubai Restaurant Awards 2016. We were delighted to have a chance to sample his culinary wizardry for ourselves.

Enjoying dinner at the restaurant

Upon our arrival, we were given one of the best tables for two, which was outside on a terrace with an amazing view of the Dubai cityscape. The restaurant is located on the Palm so there is a great view from it to the coastline of Dubai.

Just below the terrace were amazingly lush gardens. We found it hard to get our heads around the fact that such vivid greenery could exist in a desert.

And now onto the pièce de résistance – the food. Even though we had very high expectations, our meal surpassed all of them.

Plate with desserts

Raspberry dessert in Social restaurant

By far! While sipping on a glass of amazing champagne – compliments of the chef – we enjoyed delicious fois gras, an awesome steak and an absolutely delectable raspberry dessert. We couldn’t have been happier - the dinner was superb. It took us about three hours to try everything and we could easily have spent more time there.

Wine selection in restaurant

Social by Heinz Beck also has a special wine room and separate dining area for large groups of people.

Interior details

The staff were extremely nice and helpful. Our waiter was the best we've ever had. He was so polite and genuine, and gave us a lot of good advice. To our surprise, he even spoke a little Russian!

Overall, this was one of the best dining experiences we've ever had and we are extremely happy to have been invited.
