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.

This was a great night to spend with my husband. We have done a cruise through Bateaux Parisienne in Paris, so when we found this in Dubai we had to do it. And good thing we did! We enjoyed an amazing dinner cruise! The atomosphere was excellent, food was delicious, service was amazing. The views around the creek were beautiful.... More

I had done the Bateaux Dubai brunch a few years back, so was keen to try the dinner. We had family over from the UK so thought it would be something nice and different to do, plus they would get to see a bit of Old Dubai. They were not disappointed. As soon as we got onto the boat, we... More

We had transport direct from our hotel as we were staying at J A Ocean View. This was quite late due to terrible traffic. The boat was very smart and we had a lovely seat looking out of the window at the creek. I did find the menu a bit disappointing as I thought it was quite limited. However the... More

Was invited for large group business dinner held on Bateaux and was more than pleasantly surprised. Just forget about other cruises, this is the best experience in Dubai. Some might found the route limited, up and down in creek – but as I am resident in Dubai was more concentrated on overall atmosphere feeling, service and food quality. It’s not... More
