A fun evening with friends

Service is a little slow but staff are super friendly and entertaining so easily forgiven (if you are not in a rush). The menu is strange, it offers a number of cuisines but stick to the meat offerings. Steaks are delicious and there are plenty of sides to chose from. Starters of scallops were ok... read more

This is a great Steakhouse, with both comfortable indoor and outdoor dining. we tried the Australian and South African steaks and both were well prepared, tender and delicious. The staff are friendly and accommodating.

We had another great dinner at Grand Grill. As always amazing steaks and very friendly and nice service. Lovely outdoor seating. The best steakhouse in Dubai for a reasonable price!

Have visited the Grand Grill several times and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent, the service is great. The staff are all very friendly and welcoming. We normally sit inside but decided to dine outside this time which was lovely but the only down side was it was very dark, hardly any lighting so therefore could not read... More

This restaurant can be a lot of fun, noisy too if it’s your birthday...or any special occasion for that matter. It must be an African thing because Tribes in MOE has similar, ‘round up the staff, beat the drums and sing – loudly – till you’ve put sufficient colour on your special guest’s cheeks’ routines. Good fun. The Grand Grill... More

I've been to grand grill a few times, when I'm looking for South African grills to eat with pap which is my favorite. Great location, my favorite restaurant at Habtoor. Service is generally great, especially the Southern African and Kenyan staff. Definitely a good option.

We wanted a relatively informal dinner venue but with great food and service for a gathering of old friends and were not disappointed. The service was warm and friendly but generally pretty efficient (although the dining room was very quiet on the evening we visited, so you'd expect the staff to be on the ball). The steaks and seafood we... More

I have been going to The Grand Grill for a few years now, every few months I make sure I book a table there for dinner. It's great for a family visit or with friends. The steak is perfectly cooked, to your liking, every time and the side orders and sauces are amazing. I have been on a Tuesday when... More

The ambiance and service was excellent. The welcome at the front desk could have been warmer but the waiters were very good (and fun). Starters were great (prawns and grilled halloumi although could have been hotter.

Staying in The Marina

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.
