Relaxing and great Italian food

A truly lovely place, outside and inside. Some good soft Italian music, Italian chef, partially Italian staff and great Italian food. Ingredients are always of high level, and everything on your plate is just so tasteful. Everything is being taken care of, no doubts. Don't start eating the bread... read more

The garden is lovely to sit out at night and the lighting very romantic. The food was quite good but not exceptional. Service seemed erratic. Sat for 45 mins before starters arrived and by that time you find that you've demolished the lovely bread basket. Mains then arrived immediately after starters had been cleared which in my book isn't good... More

Had dinner with my wife last week, but the restaurant did not meet my expectations. Service was ok, food nothing special. Not good value for money

We dined here twice during our stay at the Ritz Carlton and were impressed on both occasions. The food was superb, the service efficient and attentive and there is the option to dine inside or out on the delightful and romantic terrace. We found Splendido to be, in fact, quite splendid!

I think this is the best Italian restaurant in Dubai up to now, and one of the best restaurant overall in Dubai. Great atmosphere, soft music -you can finally have a conversatiom without screaming to each other!-, very friendly staff. Having a strong background in Italian and international cuisine, I could find no place in Dubai where every detail of... More

My husband and I are huge foodies who book trips around eating. We came to Dubai with a list of restaurants to visit, and this one didn't make the initial list. But after further review of others, we decided this is the menu we wanted to try, and I'm so thrilled we did. Each course was as good as the... More

From the moment we arrived, we were ignored for several minutes. After I asked a waiter who seemed to be standing around lost whether he even belonged there, I got a somewhat arrogant response to wait. Then two further members of staff passed us without paying any attention as to why we may have been standing almost in the middle... More

Staying in The Marina

Neighborhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
