Haute Hangouts: Miya, Bluewaters Island, Dubai

1 min read

On the shores of Bluewaters Island, this Greek paradise serves authentic dishes in a wanderlust-inducing atmosphere

Inspired by the picturesque islands dotting the Aegean Sea and their bustling streets flanked by whitewashed houses, the new Mediterranean hotspot Miya pays tribute to the essence of Greek charm by transforming a slice of Dubai’s Bluewaters Island into a dining spot fit for Zeus himself.

The fragrant ocean breeze and brilliant blues of the Arabian Gulf make a compelling case for lazy, sun-soaked days. By night, the effervescent island comes alive in a flurry of lights, colours and music, reminiscent of the magic of Mykonos. The décor is unmistakably Mediterranean too, with an intimate terrace upstairs with the perfect vantage point for sea views.

With a symphony of traditional Greek delicacies with a modern twist available, Miya urges diners to sample its signature taramasalata topped with flavoursome bottarga, as well as the much-loved Greek salad. It also offers specialty starters such as manouri, a seared Greek cheese crowned with torched grapes and drizzled with truffle honey, and octopus carpaccio sprinkled with salsa verde. The mains boast elevated traditional favourites; lamb shank with truffle jus, josper-grilled sea bass and moussaka are menu highlights. The beverages and dessert menus also pay homage to the beautiful Greek isles, in the heart of Dubai. Book now
