The food is lovely, definitely expensive but then so is everything in the difc. Only thing I would recommend is only eat in. Don't go for takeaway. Their takeaway boxes are small so what you get delivered is half the portion of what you get if you eat there.

One of the best places I have enjoyed in Dubai. I haven't tried many dishes, but everything so far has been outstanding. The Bresaola Salad is A-Bomb. The service is so much better than many places in this city. Everything is fresh and well prepared. Don't miss it if you ever visit dubai.

The drinks were alittle slow coming out but the staff were... More

Have to try Cafe Bateel in the Marina walk for breakfast. Fantastic food and fresh juices with a nice view on the Marina walk next to the sea. Definitely worth it. They also make their own olive oil and Balsamic. They also have this amazing bread baked with dates. Yummi Yummi Yummi

We arrived and was seated promptly we ordered a cup of tea and a coke, the tea arrived but not the coke, so we mentioned that we were still waiting for the coke. About 10 minutes later after receiving the tea and a dessert we reminded the waiter of the coke again. After further almost 10 minutes and the tea... More

The worst of all Bateel cafes I have been in Dubai. Not because of the food, as the menu is more or less the same everywhere and meals are well prepared and presented, but because of the unprofessional, even rude staff here at the Marina Walk. No welcome, always dirty tables, wrong orders, long waiting for everything, no one to... More

This cafe is located right below our apartment so I've visited a few times, I actually stopped here straight from the airport when I first visited Dubai. Bateel has a great range of light breakfast and lunch dishes, the service is also friendly, the only problem visiting here is you don't always get the seats you want as it's always... More

I came to Bateel often when I used to live in Dubai. The food was always good and I liked the place. Yesterday I had a meeting with a friend and we had a cappuccino. The coffee was good but the service lousy. We waited too long to get our coffee and we had to ask twice for the bill.... More

Had a great breakfast here and this was at 12 noon. Very quick and efficient service. Loved the balsamic and date vinegar dressings. Chicken salad also excellent. I would suggest sitting in doors due to the heat out side, although the view is obviously better from the outside over looking the harbour.
