CouCou is the newest rooftop restaurant and bar in Dubai. Located at The View at The Palm, it features a breathtaking 360-degree view of Dubai including the Dubai Marina skyline, Palm Jumeirah, and beyond. Its menu is inspired by Mediterranean and French cuisine coupled with an extensive wine list and signature cocktails, while its decor blends classic elegance and contemporary chic. My wife and I were able to drop by CouCou on a weekday and for a luxurious dining experience.
Booking a table beforehand is important as the place can get busy. It’s an ideal place for an intimate dinner or a night out with friends. The restaurant is equipped with outside seating, so you can enjoy the mesmerizing views while having your meal. And if that’s not enough, there’s also a shisha lounge to top off the experience.

For our main course, we had the Grilled Mediterranean sea bass that was served with zucchini, and artichoke puree. The Waouh Grilled Ribeye was served on top of a small grill and it was cooked perfectly according to our liking.

For desserts, we had the Reversed Tiramisu and the Demoiselles tarte Tatin. While the tiramisu was good, the flakiness of the tarte Tatin pastry plus the sweetness of the apple was simply divine.

We had a serving of Mai Tai, Gentlemen Swag (Basil-infused Tanqueray gin), and Dancing Like a Coucou (Tanqueray Gin with elderflower syrup, grapefruit, and Red Bull Watermelon), and Virgin Mary mocktail.
