Looking for the best places in Dubai for fish and chips? From traditional pub grub to “chippie” stores, here are some of our favourites.
Geales has been a firm favourite amongst seafood lovers since it was established in London back in 1939. Tastefully decorated, the monochrome design of the restaurant is complemented by artsy British photography and patterned pillows, while the outdoor terrace allows for a fine-dining al fresco experience. From Hammour and Hake to Fresh Atlantic Cod and Sole, choose from a range of fish and batter options – tempura, beer batter and more – all of which are served with mushy peas and tartare sauce.
Price: Fish and chips is around AED 90 to AED 140 (depending on the fish type)
Location: Le Royal Méridien Beach Resort & Spa, JBR
