Best Horse Track Course I have ever seen

There is not much to say. It is a race horse where everything is perfectly fixed (track and services). It is located next to Meydan Hotel so if you are at Hotel it is just there.

Visited last Thursday and Saturday race evening events, dining in the tiered restaurant. We had a brilliant view on both nights with our table in the middle tier directly above the parade ring and near finish line. The meals were awesome on both nights and the young man who served us was friendly and efficient, very commendable as he told... More

Stunning Race Course. you will love this place even if you are not into horse racing. went on a Thursday. Tickets are affordable. also you can chose packages which includes more fun and closer view for a good price. food and drinks were serviced to our seats. Had a really nice evening. FYI - Betting is illegal in UAE

I visited Meydan for the World Cup Carnival meets on the 26th and 28th of February. The grandstand and facilities are immense - think Ascot but about triple the size! I caught a taxi from the nearest Metro station - Business Bay (cost 25 Dirhams/around £4) and the journey takes about 10-15 minutes depending on traffic. I opted for the... More

I purchased the Silks buffet package. The buffet was very well done and reasonably priced. The viewing balcony was 100 meters before the finish line. With the Silks package I could go to the ring to view the horses before the race. There is no parimutuel betting at the track.

Definitely buy the more expensive seats. Husband got his designer sunglasses stolen at the security check, and no one was interested when we reported it ! Still had a good day though, although took for ever to get a taxi, and decided to walk to main road to try and get one. That kind of put a cloud over the... More

Absolutely love Meydan nights out! The racecourse is stunning, set behind a spectacular hotel. you can get tickets to watch the racing for 50-100 dirhams during the racing carnival, takes place thursday/friday nights in the Winter. They serve wine and food to your seat and you can get really close to the horses andthe jockeys. It's a best kept secret... More

We decided to celebrate Valentine's Day here as we were in Dubai & had a lovely time in their beautiful glassed in restaurant with a window seat overlooking the parading horses & the finish line. We purchased a four course meal for a fairly reasonable price & they had special things for Valentine's Day like a basket of bread in... More

My houseguest suggested we go for a Dubai Carnival night (on a Thursday). She researched and booked Premier seats opposite the Winning post and although I'm not a horsey person, I thoroughly enjoyed the 'experience' ! It's worth going as it's in the cool of the evening, there is much to see and enjoy and the food and drinks (serviced... More

Went here since they had a APC event that was being held there it's really tricky to find and yes we got a taxi and the taxi didn't even know where the Resturant was !!!!! Be careful when going and plan ahead !
