GAL Dubai – Nothing’s Changed, Just Our Name

Tucked away in the heart of the city with uninterrupted views of the Burj Khalifa is GAL Restaurant & Lounge, formerly known as ‘The Galliard’. The all-new GAL continues to showcase Mediterranean-Turkish fusion and inspired recipes from France, Italy and Spain, whilst placing art and music in focus.

“Nothing has changed except our name. 2020 marked a year of transformation for everyone, so we used this opportunity to reignite and refresh our own brand, and as such, GAL was born. The letters in G-A-L stand for our combined Gastronomy, Art and Lifestyle, while the word itself encompasses a strong female, a beautiful woman, a GAL” – Cihan Kamer, Chairman.

The Mediterranean-Turkish concept includes various facets such as: a bustling open kitchen; an extensive cellar, a sophisticated cocktail bar and an open-air terrace that boasts up-close and stunning views of the iconic Burj Khalifa. GAL is Dubai’s most eagerly frequented hotspot and brings surprises by way of flamboyant service, live entertainment and signature dishes such as Ossobuco, Black Truffle Veal Pappardelle, and GAL’s signature Gamberetti Güveç.



Fresh from the Fisherman’s catch, Oysters, Caviar, Carpaccio and a host of Crustacea are celebrated, as well as unique items such as Grade A5 Japanese Wagyu and Burrata Beğendi. With a nod to its Ottoman roots, GAL boasts interesting fusion dishes such as Şaşlık, Lahmacun, Tantuni and Mantı, to be relished in the heart of Downtown Dubai.


Having showcased ‘Birthday Suit’ (a showstopping art piece by Joseph Klibanksy, which later auctioned for a staggering 800,000 Euro) GAL remains a trendsetter in the ever-evolving art scene, and a leader in Dubai’s upscale dining scene.


For the best view in town and flavours to match, be sure to catch up with friends and loved ones at this much-loved lifestyle hotspot #HeyGal #GalDubai.
