Caviar Kaspia: French dining meets Russian inspiration

First born in Paris in 1927, the iconic Caviar Kaspia is a celebration of chic French flair with Russian inspiration. As fancy as they come, this DIFC gem features Tsar-era Russian vibes with French elegance. Think plush carpets, cosy velvet seating, and antique furnishings.

Open daily for lunch, dinner and drinks, Caviar Kaspia is the ideal spot to visit if you love caviar and seafood, fancy vibes, and have a special occasion to celebrate, or person to impress. Romantic and chic, the space encompasses a cosy, other-worldly dining room on the ground floor, along with a shaded, outside-seating area. Upstairs you will find The Lounge, which is home to Dubai’s largest vodka selection and a variety of cigars, plus further dining options. 

Food-wise, Caviar Kaspia is a luxury caviar, seafood and premium beef concept, with French and Russian influences. The HUNTR visited for a weekend lunch, we started with the Piroshki (65AED for 4 pieces) – Russian minced beef buns with carrots and sour cream, they were okay, but nothing remarkable. The King Crab and Crayfish Salad (140AED), which featured tender and sweet pieces of crab and crayfish, but rather bland and boring salad leaves; we wouldn’t rush to order it again. However, the Beef Carpaccio (110AED) with parmesan, chives and truffle dressing, was beautiful with every bite.

Onto the main event, and the Grilled Octopus (155AED) with artichokes, confit potatoes and puttanesca sauce came next, and was delicious – perfectly cooked and tender, and beautifully presented. The iconic Kaspia Potato with Baeri caviar (380AED) was everything we wanted it to be – comforting, mushy potato with a generous portion of caviar on top, and creamy sour cream. Divine. The Tortiglioni with Caviar Kaspia (285AED) featuring creamy white sauce and 25g of salty, shiny Baeri caviar was nice, but not our favourite dish (that was probably the Kaspia Potato). Fresh and generously-sized, we enjoyed the Norwegian Smoked Salmon (120AED) with blinis and the trimmings, and the  Beef stroganoff (155AED) tasted better than it looks. 

Our lunch ended with the delicious Medovik (80AED) honey cake with caramel and sour cream, and the beautifully-presented Caviar de Chocolat (90AED) – dark chocolate with praline and hazelnuts. Both desserts were fantastic.

Drinks-wise, Caviar Kaspia is fully licensed and serves as a bar destination in its own right. The HUNTR stuck to water and coffee and green teas for dessert.

Insider tips: There’s a dedicated Caviar Kaspia valet right outside the entrance on the ground floor level. Advance bookings for large groups and peak timings advised. Busier in the evenings than in the day.
