We visited Après for lunch this week and were given a great table overlooking the slopes at Dubai Ski. 4 adults and 2 children we decided to go for the fish and chips which arrived on what looked like a bread board. The fish were huge hand cut chips and peas. Unfortunately the batter was really thick and stodgy but... More

Went to Apres for some cheese fondue after some skiing, we were sat by the window looking out towards the skiers which was nice. It has a sports bar type atmosphere and the food wasn't bad, good fun for cheese fondue if you like it, probably wouldn't go there for anything else though.

I went there this Friday, with my wife and her friend. To my surprise there is a reception area but there is no one to greet and meet you. So we kept walking inside and almost figured out our own seats. But then the restaurant is divided into two parts smoking and non-smoking. And smoking area is unbearable even though... More

A perfect venue for refreshments after a days shopping. It is a cooling experience to sit and have a drink while viewing the snow. The staff are excellent and both the selection of food and drinks are great.

We visited this restaurant on a Thursday evening, which is a popular night in Dubai for eating out and drinking, and having made a reservation a couple of hours before ensured us a seat by the window overlooking Ski Dubai. It took about ten minutes before we were asked if we wanted drinks, but after that the service was efficient... More

No doubt the restaurant has the best views, best ambience, best menu...however the service is pathetic. Even the Manager whom I escalated my complaint to, was least bothered to fix it. We paid a lot of money but did not get the value. Starters came after the food was served, water did not come until last, fresh lime soda served... More

I am a regular to Apres due to the relaxed atmosphere and good food. The shoulder of lamb is beautiful- tender, fall off the bone meat as well as the coq au vin. The woodfired pizzas are also great.
