The Galliard Dubai is a Turkish-Mediterranean restaurant that brings a sophisticated dining experience for the more discerning guests. Located at the Lobby level of Address Hotel in Downtown Dubai, it’s definitely a little more upscale than your regular watering hole. The elegant eatery offers “Turkish fusion dishes,” a full bar, shisha, and terrace seating where you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Burj Khalifa. The Galliard is also popular for its lush yet vibrant atmosphere, artistic interiors, delicious cocktails, and quality music.
Contemporary Fusion Turkish Cuisine
The Galliard Dubai menu features several mouth-watering appetizers, entrees, soups, desserts, and more. The Turkish signature dishes are even more intriguing with French, Italian, and Spanish inspiration. Servings are generous and mostly good for sharing.
Sample these savory Mediterranean flavors with the Tantuni, which is beef tenderloin, lamb tail, and a mix of exotic spices wrapped in pita. You may also try the Cig Borek, which is a pastry-like delicacy made of minced beef with tomatoes, mango salsa, lettuce, and slices of walnut. Kitlama is another highly-recommended starter. These are truffles and burrata served with arugula, amaranth, and cream sauce on crispy pita bread.
Try the rotisserie organic chicken fried in butter and served with sautéed baby potatoes and bell peppers for the main course. The tender meat is moist and flavored delicately with the skin cooked to a perfect crisp. There’s a whole list of exciting meat and seafood choices including the Duck Confit and the Veal Milanese. The Galliard also serves pizza and pasta.
Be sure to make room for dessert because The Galliard presents you with unique and exceptional choices. Cocosh or coconut panna cotta is a crowd favorite. You may also try the Bombolonas. These are Italian-inspired fried donuts with chocolate, cinnamon, hazel spread, and powdered sugar.
Elegantly Styled Interiors
Aside from sophisticated menu, The Galliard experience is even richer with art deco style interiors featuring Mediterranean marble and Venetian terrazzo. Original art pieces will also greet you as soon as you arrive. You can’t help but notice the thought and planning that went into creating the perfect setting.
