Bastion is located on the 25th floor of Jumeirah Beach Hotel.

Bastion offers an array of indulgent offers with refined tableside service and old-world tunes fused with contemporary flair.

If you have lived in Dubai for 10 years and longer then you must also have an attachment to Jumeirah Beach Hotel. We were overcome by a wave of nostalgia as we entered the hotel to try one of their fairly newer spots, Bastion. Located on the 25th floor and overlooking the Burj Al Arab and the Arabian Gulf, the modern brasserie and grill has an old-world charm about it.

Offering a quintessential European menu, we felt absolutely spoilt for choice and confused (in a good way) with what to pick. After much deliberation we started with the artichoke salad. An absolute feast on its own, the artichoke was filled with beans, shallots and green leaves. Once we were done with the salad we enjoyed tearing the artichoke and dipping it into the balsamic dressing.

We couldn’t resist the foie gras and it didn’t disappoint. Served with a Bellini peach and melba toast, we may just return this week for more of it. The signature beef tartare was prepared at the table and topped with quail egg. We were immediately sold on this dish too.

In the mains we decided to try the New York tenderloin served with a side of green salad. We quickly inhaled the tender and juicy meat with the garlic mash.

This was a very heavy meal but that’s only because we picked such dishes. Although we enjoyed every single item, we were just too full to try the desserts. So obviously, now we have another excuse to return soon!

Apart from offering the ala carte menu, Bastion also hosts various themed nights every week. These are as follows.
