Had the wonderful opportunity to enjoy an evening aboard this wonderful pleasure watercraft. Could not fault anything on our visit from the welcome to the farewell!! The beautiful fully glass topped boat floated us up and down the Dubai Creek for around 2.5 hours tonight and we hardly felt a thing! The meal was something you only dream about! 4... More

This is the second time we went on a dinner cruise on The Creek in one week. The first was on a different boat with outdoor tables, which we enjoyed very much as a couple. Dinner was served buffet style and there was local flavor entertainment along the way. This cruise was for business and was a sit-down meal. The... More

We celebrated my father's birthday on board the Bateaux Dubai and I have to say the service and whole experience just keeps getting better and better! When making the reservation I had made a request to be seated at the Captain's table. This was arranged for us and we were treated like royalty by all of the staff members. They... More

We recently ate dinner on the boat - it was a Saturday night and about half the tables were booked. The first thing we were asked as we boarded (just after giving our name) was what coupon we had. Turns out that most guests had a coupon giving them significant rebates on the meal. We felt slightly foolish having to... More

we had booked about a month in advance from the UK to ensure we had a table for Easter Saturday (though there were tables available on the night). Not sure why it appears to be difficult to find it - just follow the directions on the website and you will be fine - it's the only Parisian style boat moored... More

First up, Entertainer Voucher makes this so much better value. I would happily pay the full price. Very nice location, very nice staff, food is fantastic. Upon arrival we were given a small selection of canapés, very nice, bread, then a small cup of the tastiest carrot soup. You will not be served drinks until the vessel leaves the berth,... More

A memorable evening in a restaurant afloat, great service, great quality food and an option to have wine. The chef visited each table to enquire if we were happy with the food. Not cheap but worth it, there was a piano being played which added to the atmosphere.
