Piatti by the Beach has an impressive impact on its guest since it opened its doors in November 2021. Discerning diners who seek a taste of Mediterranean luxury have been flocking to the beachside venue at Raffles, The Palm Dubai. Moreover, visitors are instantly in love by the unmistakable charm of the Italian Amalfi Coast. The place is beautiful with pulsating bursts of color and cascading bougainvillaea, making the allure of this elegant beachside abode wonderfully apparent. Drawing inspiration from Italy’s stunning Amalfi Coast, Piatti by the Beach is Dubai’s newest waterfront restaurant. With gorgeous foliage, slick service and a dreamy setting, this Mediterranean-style spot is one of the culinary stars of the newly opened Raffles, The Palm Dubai.
The man behind its kitchen and menu is chef Batuhan Piatti. The latter has led acclaimed restaurants such as the first Cipriani in Istanbul and Billionaire Dubai, as well as starring in his own TV show Life is Beautiful for Batuhan and being one of the first judges on MasterChef Turkey. Chef Batuhan says the menu with quality at its core. “I have created a menu with freshness, taste and simplicity in mind, [but] you will taste the quality in every bite,” he emphasised. He added that the service at Piatti, as well as its location, enhances the dining experience.
The Mediterranean-style dining, the menu features plenty of seafood and freshly sourced ingredients. But being in one of Palm Jumeirah’s newest luxury resorts, guests can expect a Dubai twist. For a starter, a diner can have the scallop carpaccio. It is served with large helpings of shaved black truffle, red chilies and citrus zest. It’s an exciting mix of flavours and textures. Its Wagyu beef carpaccio with wasabi mayo is a must-try. It is delightfully decadent with the perfect hit of heat, interestingly served on a fine, crispy layer of filo pastry. A signature dish Dynamite Carabineros Prawns is also one of the favourites.
With pizza, pasta, grill and fish menus, there is no shortage of choices for the main event. Diners should never miss Tomahawk steak. It is designed to be shared — and instead, opt for Wagyu beef rib-eye. It is cooked as recommended which comes with a side of seared garden vegetables. It’s flavoursome, melts in the mouth, and hits the spot perfectly. Feeling full but craving something sweet, the guest can always try the crepe suzette, theatrically flambeed at the side of the table and served with vanilla ice cream and fresh fruit, which perfectly offset the citrus tang.

Piatti on the Beach is set at the higher end of the price scale. As anticipated, the price of starters ranges from Dh95 up to Dh220. At the same time, the mains cost anywhere from Dh135 for pizza to Dh650. However, the price of the salt-crusted sea bass or grilled langoustines is relatively high. Guests can expect the quality of the ingredients, and many of them are sourced directly from Greece; it’s a premium location.
