The MAINE Oyster Bar & Grill | Seaside Brasserie


About The MAINE Oyster Bar & Grill | Seaside Brasserie

The MAINE, which first opened in a loading dock on the far edge of Dubai's coastline in 2014, has since grown to become the region's leading New England brasserie, with three locations now open in JBR, Studio City, and Business Bay, as well as a Taco Truck that tours events around Dubai. Joey Ghazal, a Montreal gastropreneur, created The MAINE as a tribute to the timeless beauty of the state whose slogan justly proclaims 'The Way Life Should Be.'

The MAINE Oyster Bar & Grill, tucked away in a hotel loading dock on the edge of Dubai's sprawling coastline, is a seaside brasserie free of pretension or gimmickry.

It was quite an odd restaurant to visit. Don’t get me wrong, the food was delicious, but the setting was in a random garage somewhere. Why is a fine dining 5-star restaurant located an underground car park? The service was okay. The waiters were really friendly and helpful but the biggest problem was that the food took them a long time to bring. Our reservation was at 17:30 and they brought the Cod at 18:45. It took them an hour and fifteen minutes to grill a fish! Also the weirdest thing about this restaurant (yes there is something weirder than a five star fine dining restaurant located in an underground car park) it was extremely dark in there. Both inside and on the veranda. It was so dark that we had to use our phone lights to shine on the menu and see what’s written. Like why can’t you add a few more light bulbs that actually shine??? I still give this place a 5 star review because of the great food taste and nice waiters. They had a wide variety of alcohol but not many mock tails. The oysters were fresh and delicious!

My go-to seafood restaurant in Dubai. I can’t describe how astonishing the vibes are here. The waiters have wholesome and welcoming attitude. The food is above expectations for sure. Go with oysters, octopus and sea bass. The octopus is the best I have ever tried.

Absolutely loved this place! Very chilled vibes, weirdly the access is located through the car park so great if you come by car but a bit confusing if you walk there. The main room is beautiful and also has an outside area with great views.nThe food was excellent, loved the oysters both the local and the French ones and I think they were about 10 dirhams each, which is pretty good. Also the black cod was great and a good amount to feel satisfied after the starters. We had octopus, lobster and a salad for starters as well as the oysters and everything was delicious. The waitress were the most friendly and helpful ever! Ten out of ten for their outstanding service! Will definitely come back soon.

Before going here my brother said to me ‘you come here for the vibe, not for the food’, and I think that was a great assessment. The food was very good, don’t get me wrong. Flavourful, well cooked, good quality and decent portion sizes. Nothing wrong with the food, but it’s all relatively standard. What made the experience was the wonderful service, the beautiful location and decoration and the great atmosphere. A great place to have an evening out with friends.
