First Class Food

We did an evening brunch where we could graze all night and also paid for a drinks package where our glasses were refilled constantly. Great value for money, superb food with a massive Italian slant and charming and professional staff.

They serve a huge range for breakfast and the staff are very friendly. Just a shame one evening for dinner we ordered pizza only to find they are ready made frozen ones, when they have a pizza oven there in the restaurant.

We stumbled across this restaurant by accident due to an incompetent taxi driver who got lost looking for TGI Fridays. The food was good, carvery/buffet style. Live music was entertaining. AED 165pp including tea/coffee and water. Not the cheapest but Dubai is not cheap to eat out.

It was a buffet style restaurant, excellent food, themed nights and great choice, lt had the added benefit of excellent live music and a bar area serving alcohol.

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.
