Romantic setting

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

I was invited by a friend for an early dinner. The Classico menu was totally delightful and full of delicious surprises. Being no wheat no sugar was not an issue here: the chef ACCOMMODATED that request graciously. Prices are according to a Michelin ** restaurant, the service impeccable ( perhaps a tad overwhelming at times). What a TREAT, see you... More

We were staying at Ritz Carlton JBR and we much appreciate Italian cuisine so it was an easy choice. Unfortunately all the food was quite average, service was friendly but not very efficient. Don't waste your time and money

....What we got was a SUPERLATIVE meal. We ate here last year when the restaurant was in its infancy. We enjoyed it then but nothing prepared us for tonight's feast. We started with 24 month barrel aged ham (sliced proudly by the head chef) with the sweetest melon and Bufala mozarella the quality of which I hadn't tasted before (and... More

Had a romantic dinner here. Amazing views, atmosphere and service. Food was nice with a modern twist as you expect for this kind of restaurant. Not a typical Italian serving pizza and pasta - definitely innovative and high quality produce. Good for a special occasion.

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.
