The terrace is overlooking the Dubai Fountain

The hamour fish is one of the recommended dishes, also serving a wide variety of natural cocktails. We were seated on the terrace and were able to see the show of the Dubai Fountain while enjoying dinner.

We were taken here by friends who live in Dubai and use this place regularly. Excellent club sandwiches, wrap and a pasta alfredo for lunch. Lovely atmosphere, Bit of a mix up with drinks but sorted.

The ambience and decor is allright. Nothing wrong with the service but the food is not that impressing, Had a brunch where the rösti, sausage and halal bacon was really poor. The coffee was decent.
