Mouth watering food. The breakfast was out of this world, freshly cooked croissants, fresh fruit, dinner was truly superb as well. A mixture of Arabic, Indian, French cuisine.

This is by no means a HUGE (in terms of spread) brunch, the amount of food on offer is just right, with a carving station, live cooking and a lot of seafood. Saying that, everything that we have tried tasted great! The fresh oysters was a big hit with my hubby, the crepe was done perfectly, which my son definitely... More

We were fortunate enough to have breakfast included in our stay. The choice is vast from health options, continental choices, through to cooked breakfast and a choice of omelets all freshly cooked. Coffee is provided fresh in a cafetiere. Seating can be inside or on the outside terrace.

My friend and I decided to go here for the Iftar buffer served after sunset. We were greeted quickly and shown to our table. Aside from that the service went downhill until I got the cheque and started writing my comments - suddenly service picked up. The buffet style food was ok, the desserts very tasty. When we were finally... More

We stayed at Sofitel Jumeirah in June, we had breakfast in AOC, it was average, you expect to have more items and variety. Could have been better.

We went through our time out vouchers and found this restaurant. Fast we made a reservation and 30 min later we already sat in the restaurant. The waiting staff was very friendly and attentive. The buffet was bigger than we expected to be for 155 AED including soft drinks, water, tea and coffee. There is a big choice of fresh... More

Recently I organised a farewell brunch for a close friend - she had a couple of young kids and hence I was keen that they had decent options in terms of food / entertainment for little ones. We had a party of 13, 5 of whom would be kids (aged between 4 and 10). We also had the added benefit... More

I've been to the AOC French Brasserie 4 times over the past couple of years. My first experience warranted a return to the good service and child-friendly atmosphere. Each time I return, I am more and more disappointed that the experience didn't live up to the previous visit. My family and I visited this past weekend, in an attempt to... More

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.
