The London Project has a fabulous location right under the foot of Ain Dubai.

If you are on the quest to find a sanctuary in this concrete jungle then we have just the place in mind. We were recently invited to review The London Project-a brand new restaurant at Bluewater Island. The location is simply fabulous-overlooking the sea and JBR, at the foot of Ain Dubai-it really has that tranquil holiday vibe.

Set over two floors, each of the spaces within The London Project has its own focal point: The Living Ground Floor Dining Bar is inspired by the form of a tree, creating a rich communal area, framed by the verdant embrace of a leafy canopy. The Gin Garden is a wild, enchanted English country garden featuring bespoke art inspired by nature, by fairy tales and a dream of rural reclamation. The art on the walls and the quirky details of the decor truly fascinated us. There is plenty of outdoor seating on both floors that is perfect to enjoy during the cooler months.


The London Project is offering a delicious and curated “London eclectic menu”. Inspired from the street food of the boroughs to the fine food of the high streets, the venue offers an experience full of global influences, flavours and styles, coupled with innovative and contemporary cooking techniques.

The appetizers are designed to suit the bar crowd or a more casual dining experience. This section of the menu offers sharing options such as a Nordic cured salmon (70 AED)-a beautiful plate of cured salmon gravlax with caviar, compressed cucumber, citrus and radishes.  The decadent platter of shucked oysters (100 AED for half a dozen) had its own twist with the rhubarb granite and house-made ponzu. We thoroughly enjoyed the other finger food items like the purple potato tacos (70 AED) filled with braised beef and black garlic and buttermilk chicken (55 AED). The Ika Mata ceviche (65 AED) is refreshing with a kick of coconut cream.

The Champagne Fish & Chips (95 AED) takes the British classic and gives it a respectful pampering; Line Caught Haddock battered in Champagne and served with hand cut fries, sauce gribiche, malt vinegar, a pea puree and pea shoots.

The signature Gin Garden dessert (55 AED) is a Vanilla yoghurt parfait served with strawberries, a strawberry sorbet, yoghurt crisp, a gin and mint granite and edible flowers. This dish is the Chefs’ take on the classic strawberries and cream but has been given a The London Project twist with the addition of botanicals inspired by the Gin Garden.

The London Project is the ideal to come at sunset for drinks and bites with a breathtaking view and easy-going atmosphere.
