My husband and I have always been fans of Jamie's Italian, both back home in the UK and also in Dubai. We visited the Festival City location several times previously until it was closed down due to Mall building works. This review is for the JBH location, the restaurant seems to have a much better lay out and nicer feeling... More

Menu was not huge but... More

Jamie's Italian (at Jumeirah Beach Hotel) is a nice location and the food is reasonable. but it's not exactly exciting and you can get a similar standard of Italian at other chains in Dubai (think Carluccios). But yes, it's reasonable Italian and its licensed. The Jumeirah Beach Hotel Jamie's also does not do pizza whereas the older Dubai one at... More

Tasteless food. Not worth it although the ambience is good and the staff are great. Food really needs attention.

The place was a 'normal' Jamie place, very informal and kind of rustic, the staff very funky and cool, great service.

Nice casual atmosphere with good service. Not a place to spend hours of fine dining but the quality of the food was really good. We had the tagliatelle bolognese, which had a good consistency and nice flavor, and the meatballs special of the day which was yummie. Place is friendly for kids, as you would expect in Dubai.

As the Festival City place is closed, we went to the Jumeira Beach Hotel place. I enjoyed the venue, great loft space-style venue. Service was fine and friendly. Relaxed atmosphere and liked the decor. Food was Ok. We had the pumpkin bruschetta and it was too cold to my taste. The lamb served on a board as they do for... More
