The food at Nobu by the Beach will be Nobu’s Japanese-Peruvian cuisine served in bitesize format. With a focus on sharing and lighter bites, guests can expect little bento boxes, sandos and mini black cod and tacos. 

Guests dining at the restaurant can order from the robatayaki counter serving up charcoal-grilled fish and meat skewers; robatayaki literally means ‘fireside cooking’.

With more than 20 years of international experience, and having worked at Nobu since 2018 in both Monte Carlo and Dubai, chef de cuisine Belkacem Boubekeur will lead the kitchen alongside executive chef Damien Duviau, who will work on menu development.


Commenting on the announcement, Atlantis Resorts and Residences executive vice president and Managing Director Timothy Kelly said: “Nobu Hospitality is an incredibly valued partner for the Atlantis brand. Having opened at the resort in 2008, the brand has established itself consistently as the authority on Japanese cuisine in Dubai and we look forward to evolving this offering into a pool and beach club experience.”

Nobu co-founder Nobu Matsuhisa added: “We knew we wanted to continue growing in the hospitality scene and after Nobu Dubai’s huge success at Atlantis, The Palm we were very excited to continue expanding within the destination. Nobu by the Beach is an exciting new concept that we created to offer guests somewhere to relax and enjoy their Nobu experience for longer than just a meal, in a beautiful, casual setting.”
