We decided to hold our Christmas get together at Apres - just a few friends and some food on the afternoon of Christmas eve. Despite the restaurant section being 20% occupied around 4pm, we were shown to a table right next to one of the supporting columns - zero view of the ski slope and a cigarette smoke trap. We...

We had an early dinner here whilst shopping in the Mall. Yes it was smoky in the bar but where we ate our dinner it was fine. We enjoyed a bottle of wine with pizza and salad - very enjoyable to break up our shopping and relax with a view of the ski slope.

The menu and wine list offered a lot of great choices, so I plan to go back and try some other things, like the Duck Confit.

Great location but it was a little cold - located at the base of the ski slope as well added to the feeling of chill I think. Food was OK but nothing outstanding - bar food really I guess.

Many restaurants try to emulate this British classic. The best I have found in Dubai is in Apres where the battered fish is truely awsome, huge portion and perfectly cooked. So good that you almost forget about the chips. The setting is an uninterupted view of the snow slope in Ski Dubai The restaurans is part of a quite busy... More

Later on in m stay I foudn myself craving the atmoshere, partly because as a northern italian I was missing the cold (strange as I detest it when i'm here!).... More

We had 3 days in Dubai and really enjoyed this restaurant. It was a much more relaxed environment than the 2 hotels we had eaten in but had an interesting menu and we all enjoyed our choices. Good cocktail and wine list too. Would go back if I ever have to visit Dubai again.

Apres is an alpine theme restaurant that looks down on Ski Dubai. The schnitzels are quite good.The experience could have been so much better, if it wasn't for people who carry on if they where Caesar, smoking cigars, in the smoking section, which is right next to the non smoking section. Like cigar ash, this place will one day return... More

Located at the end of mall of the emirates behind Mui and Butcher shop on the 1st floor. If you use the escalators from Kempinski it will be on your right as you come to the 1st floor. The food is absolutely brilliant, the french onion soup is without fault, served at the right temperature and with an ample amount... More
