Fit For A King

Eat, drink and be merry whilst celebrating King Charles III coronation in sumptuous style

With the crowning of King Charles III just over a week away (May 6th) the world’s most ultra-luxury destination resort, Atlantis The Royal is going all-out to celebrate. With a meticulously curated set menu at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal inspired by coronations throughout British history, this is a unmissable dining experience for foodies and royalists alike.

The Royal Cooking menu is a five-course tasting experience inspired by dishes served at Britain’s most iconic coronations; from the coronation of Henry V (1413) and the longest reigning Monarch in English history, Elizabeth II (1953), to King James II (1685) and the lavish ceremony of George IV (1821).

Curated by Chef Director, Deiniol Pritchard, the menu saw an intensive two-month research period, working alongside renowned food historian and author, Marc Meltonville; with further development in the kitchens. Now brought to life in Dubai by Chef de Cuisine, Tom Allen and the team, the line-up of dishes offers experiential dining and storytelling in a relaxed and informal culinary experience, with dishes bearing historical dates stretching back as far as the 14th century.

The must-try's are the Coronation Chicken Tart (c.1953), comprising apricot, raisins, and smoked almond. Inspired by the coronation chicken presented to Elizabeth II in 1953, the ingredients in this incredibly special dish pay tribute to the Commonwealth. Another moreish dish is the Fillet of Beef Royale (c.1821) – think the grandest wagyu beef coupled with smoked anchovy, carrot, onion, and a sauce enriched with ox tongue. To conclude, sweet treats include the Fflampayne (c.1413), a tart traditionally garnished with triangles peeking out of the top to create an illusion of fire, which is one of many examples of the level of work and detail that goes into each dish on the menu at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal.

The Royal Cooking menu will be available from the 5th-14th May and is priced at AED1,250 per person. For bookings and to find out more, visit
