The restaurant location is close to the beach. Very well appointed food was average. Slow motion service and very poor reservation system.

I went there with my wife and 3 children. We arrived on Wed at 4:00pm, the place was empty (only one table was busy). So, we were happy to have a freedom of choice to set in front of the beach, fantastic view!!.. Struggles: 1- Waiters were always away and difficult to call. Waling around but no one is looking...

Extraordinarily beautiful setting. The food was good but the service was both very slow and quite poor. Still enjoyed the experience.

As well as diners this restaurant has a lovely open air bar area and welcomes customers who just want to take a cocktail or a drink. The location is unmatched with a warm breeze blowing in off the sea and the spectacular Emirates Palace illuminated behind you. Service is a little slow but the cocktails are superb and not excessively... More

This is going towards being a tourist attraction rather than a nice place to visit for tea. It certainly has gone downhill from last time I was here a good few years ago. The service was glacial slow. Not much of a smile in sight. Need to book high tea. I won't come back. 169AED per person for high tea... More

Terrible service! We booked months in advance and the turned up and were refused entry as it was raining early on! They apparently could not phone or email! Terrible service we were informed by the security no access to beach and were told to leave! Terrible customer service for 7 star resort
