The Atlantic Dubai is the first international outpost of the flagship restaurant in Melbourne helmed by Nick Mahlook and Sam Hocking, renowned for their culinary flair. Like its sister establishment, this sophisticated and contemporary dining destination pays homage to the very best produce from around the world. Here, seafood is taken to a whole new level through beautiful dishes that let the star ingredients shine.

“It was great to see and taste such a range of Proseccos and compare them with their sparkling cousins. The real revelation for me was the Zonin Prestige 1821 Valdobbiadene Superiore DOCG, which paired beautifully with our signature Olive Oil Confit Loch Duarte Salmon.”
