A seafood restaurant run by a two Michelin stars chef Nathan Outlaw. Another attraction is the floor-to-ceiling glass panels separating the dining room from the giant aquarium. So the fish are literally swimming by and above you while you eat your oysters (500 AED for a dozen) or grilled tiger prawns in parsley and lemon butter sauce (475 AED).

The Toro Toro brunch costs from 375 AED (for the brunch with soft drinks) to 525 AED (for the brunch with beverages).
