Pleasant Experience

Nice food and great service. The date milkshake was the highlight of the cafe. My son wanted plain pancakes they were more than happy to make that for him. Great selection to choose from. Must go!

As if one is begging for food. My wife ordered coffee with milk, she got it with cold milk, then we had to ask for plates to eat the bred and butter... Finally we only got one little jar of jam for 5 persons... Not to mention the waitress who did not smile once! I had to ask the supervisor... More

Like so many places in Dubai, Cafe Bateel offers free delivery to your house through foodonclick. Unfortunately, they do not live up to their speed 8 or taste 9 ratings! They couldn't make a frittata so we received pancakes and coffee. The pancakes were overpriced and we got 3 slightly undercooked cold slabs with 6 blueberries and some sauce. Tasted... More

Bateel is one of the best places to have a nice meal at Dubai marina. Food is delicious and service is excellent. When weather permits, the seating outside by the Marina Walk provides a wonderful view of the lovely marina. The place is almost always busy, regardless of the time of the day.

Not busy here and still everything takes for ever. Staff are terse and inconsiderate. The area is great. If you just want a coffee go to costa just down the road.

I was given a package of these dates 10 yrs ago and never forgot where they came from. I just visited Dubai and had to seek out this establishment . Well I was not disappointed, but in awe of the store and the variety of dates. You haven't had good dates until you've had these. My only regret is that... More

Cafe Bateel's desserts are amongst the best! Excellent tarts (lemon and salted caramel with chocolate are amazing) and a few others that I've tried - but don't remember the names. Friendly staff at Marina Walk and a very relaxing atmosphere as well (we were seated outside). A little expensive, but definitely worth it. 5/5. I look forward to trying other... More

I went to this restaurant at Dubai Marina, the location is amazing but the restaurant is so so... Nothing really special... The menu a la carte is basic and don´t have any special food... Prices are quite expensive for that service !

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.
