Staff superb - merci!

Recent visit for brunch on a TImeOut BOGOF deal. Staff superb from arrival - it's not clear where the restaurant is, but I was greeted very warmly and escorted to the correct lift, rather than just a grunt and point as in so many establishments. I was the first to arrive, and hence one of the team... read 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

Choices of food was wide and numerous even for picky children and teenagers. Service was similarly very good and efficient. Would highly recommend this place for other similar occasion for a...

I have not written a poor review before and this is as odd experience. I took my wife and children to dinner to AOC at the Sofitel in Dubai on JBR hoping for a lovely buffet dinner with a number of selections. The restaurant was nicely appointed, tables well done, the Terrace seating was quite nice, the hostesses pleasant and... More

AOC brasserie in the Sofitel Hotel at Jumeriah Beach could stand for "Anyone One Cares ? ". This was my second visit, the first time was an enjoyable affair. We had a server on our first visit who was engaging and helpful, telling us events that where happening in the hotel. Today the staff seem to be hurried, maybe it... More

We visited one evening last week when we were on vacation not at the Sofitel, but a neighbouring property. Drinks were fine and served from the adjacent bar but the menu in AOC is limited and we tried the buffet - but that was very, very disappointing. Food was 'tired' and looked like it had been laying out all day... More

A very pleasant brunch experience for the family. A nice spread of food and exceptional service. Thank you to Ayush and YP, for your personalized service and to the chef in the kitchen for those spicy prawns.

Great brunch with exceptional service. Ayush was superb and the entire team of staff ensures the kids are well catered for. A separate kids room with toys and a full kids buffet makes this venue ideal for families looking for a buffet suited for small kids and adults. Will return.

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.
