We dined at the Meat Co probably over 20 times the last few years. It's the best Meat in town hands down. Try the American Angus Fillet, it's fantastic! The restaurant offers few tables on a floating terrace in the artificial lake of Madinat Jumeirah. Make sure to book a table in advance well ahead if you want to be... More

No doubt a pillar of the Dubai restaurant scene, Meat Company delivers solid cuts of meat but not exceptional ones. That said I don't believe their aim is to take over the Steak Throne in this Westeros of meat fiefdoms that is Dubai. It delivers consistently good food which suddenly tastes better when the weather's good and outdoor seating becomes... More

Hello DaveD78 Thank you for the review. Love the Game of Thrones reference. I would like to disagree with you somewhat, in that I think we are more like the Starks than the Greyjoys. At present we are not the sitting on the proverbial Steak Throne, but we have the pedigree to do so. House Stark has a strong lineage,... More

Overpriced - pity because the food and staff are excellent. Seems that management are not aware that the exchange rate from SA Rand to dirhams is 3.84:1 not 1:1.

Hello ShukranAbuDhabi Thank you for the review. It is certainly a pity that the Rand is suffering. Hopefully the Rand will recover soon. As South African I have long stopped making the conversion, as this is always alarming. In terms of the Market we fell the priced are fair given the quality we offer. Hopefully this will not deter you... More

This was my third visit to The Meat Co at madinat souk. The food, the atmosphere and service was excellent. Steaks were cooked to perfection. Service received was very good. Views from the outdoor tables is exceptional and I would definitely recommend sitting on the outside tables. Would definitely recommend and I will definitely visit The Meat Co again.

The Meat Co is tucked away in the souk medinat hotel complex with a view of the Burj al Arab hotel. There is seating inside and out with tables along the canal with small does ferrying guests back and forth. The service is good and friendly though it took sometime to get the food. We had the chateaubriand with trimmings... More

I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting to treat themselves to a fine meal with a view of the famous Burj Al Arab (which is most impressive at night, as it is flooded in color). Most of our group ordered steak and were very pleased with their meals. I am vegetarian and unfortunately there wasn't really any entré... More

Disappointed with the quality of the meat, far too expensive for the food you receive.The meat was fatty and tough the service was not of a high standard and eating outside was very dimly lit.

Tender and well cooked steaks, yet very expensive for what it offers! Inside it was too meat smelly and when leaving all my cloths smelled at grilled meat.

Hello Ricardo A Thank you for taking the time to make a review, we appreciate the effort. Should you decide to join us in the future, may I suggest that you make a reservation so as to ensure you get a seat outside. We have a open plan kitchen so smell of grilled meat is ever present.
