Overall this place offers fantastic food quality in a very atmospheric environment with good service, however with a fairly hefty bill, needs to pay attention to some of the smaller details if it is to maintain a true 5 star rating.

A family visit to celebrate Mother’s Day - was a surprise visit, so we could not order any of the items requiring the 24hour pre-order.

The booking was accommodated very well and with a friendly and helpful manner - especially since we changed our booking 3 times. We were a group of 7.

We arrived and were greeted very warmly and shown to our table, which was on the outdoor terrace - fantastic setting over the creek. The red carpet leading to the small stage where photos can be taken was a good addition - although has become worn in places and accumulated some dust on the stage that would seem to have been there some time- there was not a crisp look - a bit dull.

Waiter came and explained the menu very professionally and gave some good recommendations. As it was not practical to pre-order, the remaining items became a little limited in choice. Having placed our order, it was further disappointing for the waiter to return to say they did not have enough of the kebab item and we had to debate which of us wanted to change the order - this was an awkward moment around the table.

The food came - was well presented and very tasty - one of the best quality meals we have had in our time in Dubai. The pace of service was just right between appetiser and main course.

One item we ordered was finished at the table with a flambé experience- a great touch.

The bill came to almost AED 2,000 - and for this reason would expect a better attention to the details they are to truly gain a 5 star rating.

Would I re-visit ? Probably not as a group - but maybe as a couple or 4 of us.

Dear SteveDowdDubai,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review. Your feedback is valuable to us and we have read it with great attention.

First of all, we are glad you enjoyed your experience overall, from food to service and atmosphere. The interior of our restaurant has been designed with meticulous attention to detail and strikes a timeless elegance. Your comments about the red carpet have been noted.

It is important to us that our guests feel welcome and comfortable throughout their visit. We pride ourselves on our warm hospitality and professional service. Therefore, we are sorry that you had to change your order because some of the items were not available. We will discuss this matter with our team to avoid it in the future.

It is a big compliment for us to know that your dinner at the Doors Freestyle Grill was one of the best meals you had in Dubai. We take great care in the preparation and presentation of our dishes and are happy when we are able to pleasantly surprise our guests. Hopefully, you will visit again in the future to try our unique creations from the Melt in Mouth collection. As you say, they require a pre-booking, as they are slow-cooked for several hours.

We look forward to welcoming you back and will work hard once again to provide you with a five-star experience.

Kind regards,
Your Doors Freestyle Grill Team
