Great food, great service, overall good value for money! The beverages package include a more than decent sparkling wine, and cocktails. The staff was lovely and really attentive. Food was the real surprise for everyone, including grilled seafood, a bouillabaisse really tasty, some oysters, 2-3 different kinds, sushi, nice cheeses and yummy deserts. If you are after meat, there is... More

When you walk into the Brasserie's brunch the wonderful smells and the elegant, food-feng-shui dazzle the nose and eyes. All of a sudden your belly grumbles and you are in a playground for food junkies - the delicately placed fresh oysters on ice, the parade of cheeses from around the world, the aromas from the crepe station, the beautifully adorned...

We went to the Thursday night seafood theme night. Having confirmed the price twice the night before on the phone and ensured we told them we had an entertainer voucher. The bill was more than 100 Dhs more than agreed. This wouldn't have been so bad put the response from the management was less than helpful and the food was... More

Great brunch at AOC in Sofitel Dubai Jumeirah Beach! For the last 5 years me and my family used to visit this place approximately once in two-three months. Maybe Sofitel management decided to change chef or to spend more money but my recent visit was really awesome! Plenty of meat, cheese, seafood etc. Taste is fresh and incredibly mouthwatering.

We a did the Thursday night Sea based buffet at the AOC in Soiftel JBR. It is a spacious layout with plenty of space to move around and the counters are spread nicely, so no crowding. We started at the Oyster counter, always a good place to begin I think, there was also a array of shell food here, mussels,... 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.
