Very decent actually.

Lovely South African themed restaurant in the Habtoor Grand Hotel. Wine list is decent but the service is inimitably South African so understandably there is a focus on the new world wines, with Stellenbosche well represented.

On arrival, the reception desk suggested pre-dinner drinks in the lounge bar at happy hour prices. The live singer was great but there were a number of smokers in the room which was not so good. We chose to eat outside (to get some fresh air!) and found it quite pleasant. The staff were friendly and attentive and there was... More

All you can eat chicken and ribs. Took 50 mins to get out food to the table and when it arrived it tasted of plastic. I wasn't expecting the highest quality, but this was just awful. One friend wanted more ribs and they had ran out by 10pm. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Waste of time and... More

Excellent food and wonderful service. The Argentinian Sirloin Steak was excellent and the waiter was attentive, without being annoying or tedious

I am a zimbabwean restaurant manager active in dubai- i like meat and i know the foundations of running a superb restaurant. The grand grill is outstanding. You are greeted with a warm smile and guided swiftly to your table and within minutes receive an array of delightful drinks. Shortly thereafter mouthwatering meat just melting off the bone is in...

Read plenty of lovely reviews about this place, and as we were staying at the hotel, we decided to treat ourselves on our last night there with this fabulous dining experience. We opted to sit outside on the terrace where we could enjoy the night breeze, some family members got cold so the restaurant provided them with pashminas/shawls (what a... More

We had a wonderful evening in the SouthAfrica themed restuarants. We all had steaks from various parts of the planet. They were cooked from rare to we'll done. They arrived as requested with all the side dishes. Can't fault any of the food or service. Nice wine also.

We spent a fantastic evening with friends at this impressive restaurant. The decor was splendid, as was the setting - we were seated outside on the terrace. The staff were wonderfully attentive, without being intrusive and no member of our party was neglected for either food or drink service throughout. I ordered the Boerworst as a starter, which was piping... More

From entrance to exit this is one of the best restaurants in Dubai. The food is amazing, the hospitality is warm and inviting and the atmosphere is definitely one of a kind! We had an excellent evening.

Neighborhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
