We enjoyed our evening river cruise on Bateaux Dubai. The food was pretty good but the views were great. We had visited other parts of Dubai but this was a great way to see the important and interesting sites of what had historically been the heart of the city of Dubai. Our table was right next to the window so... More

Cannot fault this experience. Food, out of this world. Service, perfect and very friendly. The boat and journey just fantastic. My parents were over to see me for a holiday, and said it is one of the best dinning experiences they have ever had. The cruise started on time, starters arrived at the table shortly after, and the other courses... More

Did not like the experience at all, first of all it was extremely noisy I ended up the evening with a headache and wanted to escape this boat asap: nothing refined and elegant as it is advertised but a busy noisy boat with terrible long service. Also we were so disappointed to see that the boat was speeding in front... More

Enjoyed a meal on the boat as part of a work trip. There were around 25 of us and I would recommend it to anyone else that is looking for something different to do with a large group. Food was excellent, drinks were very good, service was good and it certainly didn't feel like we had to wait ages between... More

I booked to celebrate my husbands birthday and we were looking forward to a good meal and fun evening. The quality of the food was excellent but completely ruined by the time taken to serve each course. The time delay between our starter and main was ridiculous. My main course arrived after 10 pm (we boarded at 7.30!) and my... More

we tried it once and will never do it again, it's dirty, the food was terrible, the entertainment, if we can call it like this, was of very low quality, we just enjoyed the cruise.

Chef Raydan Bou Mahdi and his team makes your evening perfect as he serves exquisite food during a very romantic cruise on the Dubai Creek. Try it and convince yourself!

A group of us celebrated a joint birthday party and the cuisine, care and attention to detail was superb. The Bateaux Dubai is a " must do " experience for anyone visiting Dubai. Thank you Chef for a most memorable night.

Was a brilliant cruise on a spectacular boat that passed some of the more overlooked, but no less amazing sights of Dubai. The food was delicous and of a very high quality.
