Although they have a diverse menu their waiters seemed a little distracted on this occasion (my second visit ).As always ,the view of the fountain show was spectacular as was the well seasoned lamb shank I had.All my fellow diners were happy with their meal,though none was wowed! A good but not great night out.

Had lunch here today. Delicious!!! Cappucino the best in Dubai with lovely complimentary mini cakes and biscuits. Gorgeous decor very quirky and tasteful. Service was excellent and the walks around the lake outside afterwards made this a really beautiful experience.

Went for breakfast and wondered if I'd walked through the looking glass - very chintzy. Breakfast was nice, but not exceptional. Service was good but having plates cleared whilst still eating is irritating.

make sure you sit outside to get a view of the Burj Khalifa. Great place to take lots of selfies/groupfies etc. In the evening, you can also get a glimpse of the magical water fountains. Food is sumptuous. Portions are big and can be shared by 2 people. Apart from this, the decor is the thing to look out. Typical... More

Dubai is expensive to eat and drink, but this up market chain is very good value, especially as they serve excellent all day breakfast options and excellent tea/coffee.

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.
