Two restaurants at Jumeirah Group-operated hotels in Dubai have made it into the top 25 in the 101 Best Hotel Restaurants Around the World list.

Produced annually by food and drink website The Daily Meal, the list is selected and ranked by a panel of experienced bloggers, restaurant critics, and other food and lifestyle writers from around the world.

This year, the list is topped by Epicure at Le Bristol in Paris, followed by Dinner by Heston Blumenthal in London and Le Louis XV at Hôtel de Paris in Monte Carlo.

The highest-ranked Middle East hotel restaurant is Al Mahara at Burj Al Arab, in 12th place, followed by The Rib Room at Jumeirah Emirates Towers, at 21st. Both hotels are operated by Jumeirah Group and their rankings are up significantly from last year, when they came in at 65 and 59 respectively.

Also making an appearance in this year’s list are The Fish Market at the Intercontinental Hotel Doha (77th) and Isaan at Grand Hyatt Doha (99th). Neither made the list last year.

In order to qualify for the list, the hotel housing the restaurant had to have at least 15 rooms, while both the hotel and restaurant had to be in the same property and under the same ownership.
