Nineteen restaurant at the Address Montgomerie recently launched its new Italian Fish Market evening (or as head chef Marcello calls it – the ‘mercato del pesce’). Every Thursday, the head chef sources the freshest fish available in the city that day. Diners can then choose whether they want their fish seared grilled or baked. Each dish is priced per weight, and a complimentary drink is available upon arrival. The restaurant offers unrivalled views of the championship golf greens and fantastic outdoor seating (if its cool enough).

7pm-11pm, every Thursday. Fish priced per weight. For reservations, call +971 4 3631220 or email
