This has to be one of the nicest places to eat in Dubai ..... Great service food and setting you really can't go wrong with the Sunday lunch deal of three hours of dining with an unlimited drinks package What a glorious afternoon was had by all and the price was fair by Dubai standards Defiantly worth a visit tho

Dear Mr. Michael, We are delighted to read of your enjoyment of our Brunch. Just to clarify that our three hour rolling brunch deal is on Saturdays and our three and a half hour Brunch is on Fridays. I know both seem like a Sunday, and perhaps by the time you left the premises it was already a Sunday. Either... More

Had a great lunch there recently with friends, we were two couples with two small babies. Very welcoming staff, patient with the whole baby thing. Very, very well presented tables, extremely enticing menu. Drinks menu is very well appointed and the wine, whilst not cheap (but then again this is Dubai) is excellent. However I'd recommend staying away from the... More

This place really exceded my expectations ... They had a good selection of draught beers and single malt scotch, and the food was great too (I had a thai-baked seabass). Try the place - you'll enjoy it!

When the Ivy first opened it was a special place in terms of food quality and overall ambience, sadly that is no longer the case.

Great new business lunch menu. Unfortunately their staff aren't too sure of what goes into their food. Ordered off the business lunch menu and asked the waiter if there was any flour in the food. He said no it was just Kimchi and Beef. They proceeded to serve me a kimchi, beef wrapped in a puff pastry. They also don't... More
