Al Hambra is traditional Spanish eatery with an unerring knack of making you feel at home. You'd be forgiven for thinking you're in a bustling Valencian taverna - but one glance at the view of the palm-fringed canals from the terrace will remind you of your romantic Gulf location. Take your pick from a parade of colourful plates, each filled with fresh, seasonal and sometimes surprising ingredients, all served in a casual family-style setting. Try the zingy gazpacho or chorizo frito, or work your way through a delicious pile of calamari rings, king prawns, or our popular chicken and rabbit paella. Locals and travellers alike come to Al Hambra to experience not just its extensive menu of authentic tapas and rustic regional Spanish cuisine, but for its lively atmosphere too. It's a perfect setting for al fresco dining or just to enjoy the city's best sangrias (served in generous clay pitchers).We are offering 20% (twenty percent) discount for spanish nationals.

The tapas menu an absolute highlight. We took the special which included "Eat as much as you like" tapas, pork, paella and dessert for AED190. Drinks extra. Condition for special was that everyone on the table had to agree to order the special. We were a party of 7, so the restaurant brought us choices of tapas, then asked which... More

We have visited Al Hambra many times but, unlikely to again. Previously we have enjoyed the good range of tapas, good atmosphere and friendly staff. This time however, we were less impressed. Firstly, the dishes have changed: where before the gambas arrived sizzling in oil at the table, now they arrive dry; where before, the paella arrived in the skillet... More

We visited Al Hambra for dinner I have to say though, having visited this restaurant numerous times before the food was not quite as tasty as it has been previously.

The best part of the entire experience was the phone booking of table. Very professional and very friendly. Seated by the bar after arrival to the restaurant we could sample few nice free nibbles presented in nice "cans". Get barman's attention took a while but the drink ( mojito ) was great.

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.
