Perfect location

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

This used to be my favorite place to eat, great food amazing view over ski dubai but this time I have no idea what went wrong, first of all when we arrived to the door there was no one to lead us in and provide us with a table, so we simply waited for a good 10 minuets and still... 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. Apres offer a range of interesting and tasty cocktails all with a winter theme. I love the mulled wine served hot... More

This review is based on drinks only as we had already eaten with friends and came to Apres for the social aspect... A lively and well staffed establishment which serves alcohol. On looking at the bar you can't tell what they have in stock as all draft pumps have no name, the bottles behind the counter "generic" glass with no... More

It's a sophisticated lounge, serving authentic wood fired pizzas and delicious Sangria. It's a awesome place to go with your loved one spend some amazing time, sipping cocktails with its views overlooking ski slopes. Try to grab a table close to the window, it will take you to the snow of Alps.

Having a drink while watching snow outside in ski dubai, and all this in the heart of the one the UAE biggest mall, i went many times to do shopping in the mall and I always ended up having some beers here. The only thing that I don't like about the place sometimes it is very cold.

we went here 7 years ago when the mall of the emirates was pretty new and the idea of sitting eating dinner and drinking wine overlooking a ski slope sounded pretty special ... 7 years ago the food was great but in 2015 it was awful ... it smelt of stale cigarette smoke - apparently you can smoke one side...
