folly | in the heart of Madinat Jumeirah
Folly, which has a prime location in Souk Madinat Jumeirah, is managed by multi-award-winning homegrown celebrity chefs Nick Alvis and Scott Price and offers a casual take on contemporary fine dining in a relaxed but sophisticated setting. There's plenty for everybody, from a private dining room and open kitchen to rooftop terraces and bars with stunning views of the Madinat Jumeirah waterways. An enjoyable experience is guaranteed, from chef's signature recipes from the signature menu to leisurely cheese and wine meals to the perfect weekend brunch or craft drinks and folly pops by The Rooftop!
The Dining Room
The perilous journey starts at the front entrance, where a hidden tunnel leads visitors up a steep staircase into the crowded restaurant's core. A classic, timeless feel is created by exposed brick walls, teal banquettes, and traditional dark wood tables and chairs.
The Kitchen Bar
The eight-seater bar directly overlooks the open kitchen, encouraging diners to observe and converse with the chefs while getting a rare perspective on the fast-paced, dramatic essence of a busy service. We will plan a tasting menu of the chef's favourites and walk you through each dish as it's cooked and served for a fully immersive experience.
Garden Terrace and Lounge
The expansive Outdoor Terrace & Lounge, which is adjacent to the main restaurant, has its own kitchen, spectacular views, and an intimate, secret-garden atmosphere.
The rooftop of folly is a destination in itself, located a floor above the main restaurant and offering uninterrupted views of the Burj Al Arab and the Arabian Gulf. When the sun sets, there are few better ways to drink a cocktail and nibble on something tasty.
