Romantic garden restaurant

My main memory of this restaurant would be the romantic garden setting with twinkling fairy lights and soft candles. To top it off the saxophone player was outstanding and a pleasure to listen to. Just perfect. The food was good though certainly not cheap. Service is patchy sometimes but overall a... read more

An ideal establishment for a romantic evening, I will certainly be returning. Although we were shamelessly late to dinner, the hotel had held two tables for us, one inside and one outside to cater for the change in weather. Once seated the waiters were wonderfully attentive and very helpful when we had questions about the menu. A delightful starter of... More

My boyfriend surprised me with dinner here last night. I am a massive fan of Italian cuisine, and this was honestly one of the best meals I've ever had! We received complimentary pre-starter prawns with black cod mousse - Heavenly. Starters beef cheek (melt in your mouth) and off-the-menu Burrata that I asked for (great service to serve off the...

We had great memories of a dinner we had experienced here many years ago & chose to dine again with friends who were visiting from Canada. This was our one night out in a 'flash' Dubai restaurant. The reservation process was very good and great follow up via email with 100% accuracy. Almost everything else was unfortunately less than satisfying... More

Splendido in our opinion, is not simply one of the best Italian restaurants in Dubai but one of the best Italian restaurants worldwide. We are lucky enough to frequent many of the world's greatest restaurants and if you have never heard of Splendido before then I sincerely hope that this review may put it on your radar.

I love my food even when I'm out of Italy. I love the sense of hospitality and professionalism in this restaurant that remind me the hotel in Portofino.

I was at Splendido last week and I can say that it is by far the best italian restaurant in Dubai. The food was amazing, the burrata served by Guiseppe was creamy and amazing. Truffle pasta was just awesome and the coteletta (milanese) reminded me of the one I had in a very tiny trattoria in Italy. Sorbets are home... 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.
