Much loved British fish joint, Geales, has been servicing Notting Hill and Chelsea London locals for decades (since 1939 to be exact). Crisp white table cloths and classic vinegar shakers have prevailed, but true to Dubai tradition, the unassuming restaurant has been given a UAE facelift and the leafy streets of SW3 and W8 are replaced by a spacious backdrop of Le Royal Meridien hotel. The terrace, a 'come hither' outside bar and lounge area, is perfect for cooler months of sociable gatherings. Inside the space is vast, but not so that you feel lost and thanks to the venue's ergonomic design there is something for everyone; whether a spacious booth in the restaurant, casual spot in the lounge or a perch at the bar. The crudo counter serves carefully sourced produce and the fish cured (in house) is highly recommended.
