Assuring a product-driven experience supported by efficient friendly staff, who are passionate about delivering consistent personalised service, Sean Connolly at Dubai Opera can seat 339, including 199 inside and 140 al fresco.
Elegantly designed in coastal brasserie style, the contemporary standalone restaurant serves steak and seafood, each dish a celebration of Connolly’s passion for cooking and highlighted by his 25 years of industry experience. The uncomplicated and produce-driven menu of the restaurant is complemented by a rooftop lounge serving a choice of beverages and opening to uninterrupted views of Burj Khalifa, the global icon. 
Olivier Harnisch, chief executive officer of Emaar Hospitality Group, said: “It is indeed our honour to present Sean Connolly to the Middle East through his signature outlet under our Lifestyle Dining division. We are focused on bringing truly unique culinary choices that stand out for the brand identity, cuisine and location.

Connolly said: “Dubai was no doubt my first choice to mark the expansion of branded restaurants to the Middle East, and Dubai Opera with its iconic status served as the best fit. It is a pleasure to work with Emaar Hospitality Group as it respects the culinary values that I want to uphold, and the team offered all support to the opening of my first signature outlet here. My style is to keep the dishes simple and uncomplicated and to let my guests discover the joy of dining together. Consistent quality and personalised service will be the defining values of Sean Connolly at Dubai Opera.”
