Great location

Good food and great service, but what makes this special is the location right inside the Dubai Fountains. So every half hour you see a melting pot of humanity coming in after the fountain show. A great place to grab a bite and see the multi-national cross section of people that is Dubai.

We love the location. We had dinner outside while watching the dancing fountain, lovely view. Food was really good. Staff were nice and attentive. Busy place but really worth a visit. I so love the Grandma Iced tea. Highly recommended and will definitely dine here again when we visit Dubai.

It's a great restaurant with excellent food. They have some vegetarian food too which is Good. The tomato soup and the pasta was excellent and huge portions. The two of us were unable to finish just these two. The best place to sit is outside so one can view the dancing fountain too. The ambience and environment is good and... More

It's a great location if you want to have dinner outside and watch the fountains as they do the show in the evening. Food is ok, we had the nacho pizza, it was unique and tasty, a caprese salad and fried cheese. A good restaurant of standard american style food.

Stopped by for a late lunch and to be totally honest wouldn't go back. Whilst the food was good, the staff spent mots of there time chatting amongst them selves and to get service, I constantly needed to call. Not even paying attention to the area they were serving, just chatting and being "social". I guess by name by nature.... More

This restaurant is situated directly in front of the fountains which gives it the extra awe. The food and juices were pretty good to add to the visit. I wish alcohol was served there but all in all it was a great spot to grab a bite to eat or just socialize.

On my trip to Dubai last month we wanted to grab a bite to eat and check out the fountains. This is a great spot, excellent for people watching. The service was really slow, but the food was awesome. If you're not sure where to go, you can't go wrong with this place, as they have a little bit of... More

If you want to try the best Ice Tea in the Dubai- visit the social house. They are making home made ice tea, nit flavored with syrup, you can find the pieces of fruits (I had peach) and it is so delicious. Plus the view and big portions.

We come here every time we visit Dubai and it hasn't disappointed us. Their menu is interesting and offers varied dishes. This time we took prawns in a spicy sauce with garlic bread and it was very delicious. Their breakfast choice is incredible and we will have to try it next time. The restaurant is nicely and homey decorated and... More

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
