Dine in one of the top five restaurants in RAK

As RAK witnesses development projects all over the emirate, the variety and sheer number of dining options for food lovers continues to grow, also. Below are highlights of what we consider to be the top five RAK restaurants. We recommend these five for exceptional dining experiences:


  •          Lexington Grill

If you are looking for mouth-watering steaks in a relaxing atmosphere, and if you like friendly, welcoming staff who cater to your needs, then Lexington Grill at the Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah is the right place for you. This superior restaurant offers a delicious menu of the juiciest steaks and the freshest seafood flown in from around the world. Chef Lij Heron, who was named the Best Meat Chef in the Middle East last year, supervises the kitchen team, showcasing his unique, air-dried beef cuts that cannot be found elsewhere in the region.

The restaurant has an inviting atmosphere, with a selection of private dining rooms and open-area spaces to suit each individual taste. Lexington Grill offers a wonderful dining experience, the best service, and – most importantly – exceptionally good steaks.

Lexington Grill and UMI




  •          Umi

For an authentic Japanese dining experience, UMI – also at the Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah – is the right choice. Enjoy a sophisticated selection of teppanyaki, sushi, and sashimi while you take in a stunning view of the Arabian Gulf at one of the trendiest restaurants in the UAE.

Talented chefs showcase their oriental culinary magic right in front of your table, cooking a selection of delicious beef, chicken and seafood dishes on the open teppanyaki grill. Or, sample the exquisite freshness of delicate sashimi. Guests are enchanted and delighted as they watch the preparation of this elegant and modern Japanese food.

Japanese Chef Yogisaka leads a talented team of specialist chefs from across the globe. Their passion and flair can be seen in the creative range of dishes, which seamlessly blend the traditional Japanese flavours with contemporary dining. The menu includes Japanese delicacies including Matsutake Chawan, Japanese Honjyou Wagyu Beef and Black Sesame Sponge & Yuzu Chiboust. Additionally, the TWG tea collection includes handpicked teas such as White Spring Tea and Oud Night Tea.


  •          Pura Vida

For tender steaks from Brazil cooked and sliced right in front of you, try Pura Vida at the Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Resort & Spa.

Churrasco is a unique Brazilian way of roasting meat on an open fire that Pura Vida is famous for producing. This method preserves the characteristic taste of each different cut of meat, leaving it bursting with its own natural juices and flavours.

If you are not a big fan of red meat, no worries! There are lighter dishes to choose from, such as the Brazilian mussels stew Lambe Lambe, or the delicious chicken wings, or seafood dishes such as the Copacabana, which is fish made with the Middle Eastern favourite grilled hammour fillet.

An à la carte menu is also available.

Pura Vida & Passage to Asia:




  •          Passage to Asia

Tropical flowers, exotic herbs and an array of spices await you at the sophisticated Passage to Asia restaurant at the Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Resort & Spa. The menu at this elegant restaurant combines two of Asia's most popular cuisines: Japanese and Thai. Try Thai cuisine, which balances the five tastes of sweet, hot, sour, salty and bitter; or sample the freshest sushi at the sushi counter. You can enjoy your meal on the outdoor terrace, overlooking the spectacular Arabian Gulf. A truly Asian experience is also available from the à la carte menu.


  •          Vespa

This fun, friendly, family-style Italian restaurant is one of the latest additions and most attractive eateries in the emirate of RAK. It is located in the DoubleTree by Hilton on Al Marjan Island. The décor of the restaurant is elegant, the menu has sophisticated Italian delicacies, and the ambience is gentle. The staff is very friendly and attentive, and the service is superb.

The menu boasts an authentic selection of Italian dishes that you can select as starters, main courses, desserts and mocktails. The menu is suitable for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.

If you love Italian food, try this restaurant for a wonderful dining experience.
