Service: Very attentive. Extremely polite and friendly staff. Whenever you need something the server is always around, something that every restaurant should consider making a permanent and consistent factor in hospitality. Our server was remarkably sweet and incredible in helping us choose dishes according to our tastes and preferences.

What we loved: The quality of food really stands out. What impressed us the most is that even though the menu has numerous options, whatever we picked was just incredible in taste.Every dish in every course certainly meets your expectations. Absolutely loved the starters. The Fresh burrata with deliciously, roasted tomatoes were mouthwatering. I’d go back any day to eat this dish! Every main dish would be good for 2 people, but I would still recommend trying 2 mains, just so that you could taste more of what Artisan has to offer, as you’d be missing out otherwise. The Risotto with porcini mushrooms is of a typical and authentic Italian flavor, absolutely rich in taste. The desserts were truly divine and without doubt the highlight of the afternoon. The tiramisu is so full-flavored. One thing I very much loved and appreciated about The Artisan, is the sense of consistency. Not just when considering the food, although every dish was flawless, their service was too. Not very often do you find that absolutely nothing disappoints you. It was very endearing, and the restaurant will always be in my top picks in Dubai.

What we didn’t like as much: Nothing indeed.

What we recommend:

  • Fresh burrata with delicious roasted tomatoes
  • Fried calamari with lime and chilli mayo
  • Risotto with porcini mushroom
  • Agnolotti del Plin Farciti di Zucca Mantovana, Salvia, Burro, Mandorle Tostate con Fonduta di Parmigiano
  • The Artisan profiterole

Ambiance: Stylish & elegant interiors. A very cosy atmosphere as the restaurant is not too large.  Definitely one of our favorite restaurants in the area. Almost full house during weekday lunch hours.
