This was our second cruise and we introduced our daughter to Bateaux Dubai. The standards the first time round were exceedingly high, but it was even better this time. Service and food were superb and we will be back soon.

We were here to celebrate a very special night. And I think my partner hit bulls eye when he picked this place. Bateaux is a fine dining experience on a cruise. And they have different packages to suit your needs. The cruise in itself goes all around the Dubai creek while you enjoy your meal, and between courses you have... More

It’s a complete experience of fine food with an amazing riding in Dubai Creek. The experience started with the elegant welcoming from the staff followed by welcoming drink. The ambiance is stylish and I think this is the most stylish cruise in Dubai. The food is a set menu you can chose from selection of starter, main, and dessert. The... More

The meal as part of the evening Creek ride was in the top five meals that I have ever eaten, with the evening sites of the Creek serving as a perfect backdrop. The boat does not have neon lights, tanoura dancers or buffet but it is exactly like the dinner cruises in Paris, with all those other dhow cruises serving... More

One of many boats offering a dinner cruise - but a very different boat from the others which were more traditional local and attractive Inside however the dining area looked stunning, staff massively attentive but never intrusive or fawning The piano player created a comfortable hubbub and the ambiance of the restaurant was top notch!

Four girls from the UK, enjoying a short break in Dubai, decided to book Bateaux Dubai as a last night treat and so glad we did. Fabulous food, beautifully presented complemented by a great selection of wine. Definitely a must do and something we will do again, if we get the chance.
