Dubai is a city bustling with life and taste, a melting pot of cultures and cuisines and this idea is certainly reflected in the menu of the Cavendish. The restaurant prides itself on serving delicious food with a creative twist that can only be described as the 'Dubai taste'. The Cavendish caters for every preference with a unique fusion of delicious international cuisine and the exotic elements of the Middle East. The level of care and time that goes into producing this fabulous fare is beyond measure! In fact, our Executive Chef's mantra is straightforward, anything that can be made from scratch should be - no exceptions! For cooler days, there's also a large outdoor terrace overlooking the Almas Tower - perfect for al fresco breakfasts, lunches, or dinners!

This is an awful restaurant in my opinion. I lived in Bonnington for over 18 months and never saw this place busy. I ventured down towards the end of my stay and found out first hand why. The menu is limited and awkward, underlined by sky high prices. To be honest, if you are a tourist in Dubai, there are... More

Dear TheOriginalNeal, Thank you very much for your comments. I was sorry to hear that, despite only popping down quickly during your long-term stay at the Bonninton, you did not enjoy your dining experience with us. Our menus change frequently and we also regularly feature specials which are generally very well received. As for the awkwardness of the menu, I'm... More

During holy month of Ramadan sometimes you need to give yourself and friend a good treat. The Cavendish is one of the finest restaurants in the JLT. Huge variety of delicious Arabian and international cuisine, lots of sweet desserts and true friendly crew. What's really impressing that every single detail is being taken care off.

We have been regular customers at Cavendish restaurant and since 4 years we have been visiting them for Iftar. Quality of food is excellent including the variety of dishes. The serving staff was attentive. Food was laid perfectly and was hot comparably to other buffets where the food is reasonably cold. The iftar began at the appointed time instead of... More

Excellent iftar served at this hotel. I skip all the fancy places and book a table here every year without fail. Succulent food, mouth watering desserts and interesting live stations available. Over flowing buffets is my pet peeve and this place is never crowded making the quantity of food enough for the diners available. Lovely live Arabic music is also... More

Good selection of food, Not huge but all good quality. Service was good, if a little slow at times. Not stingy with drinks either. Great kids area if you want that and of course, McGettigans is right next door ready for you to fall into!

Breakfast buffets in Dubai are all fairly similar. This one is one of the better ones I've had. Eggs to order, fresh coffee, and buffet offererings vary daily. As with everything else I've encountered at the Bonnington, very attentive staff.
