Description: The approach to Al Qasr sets the stage for an incredible dining experience. Grand yet elegant, the road leading to the hotel is lined by softly up-lit palm trees and beautifully sculpted golden horse statues. Guests are warmly greeted by colleagues at the entrance. Once in the lobby the sound of the piano in Al Fayrooz enchants the first time visitor and reminds returning guests of why they keep coming back. Breathtaking flower arrangements and magnificent chandeliers punctuate the journey as guests make their way down the grand carpeted staircase to Al Hambra. Join for a pre-drink on our barrels/high seating, whilst enjoying a scenic view.

Superb food, superb staff! I would struggle to be more impressed. A ribeye steak and a lamb leg both of which probably represented a substantial percentage of the original animal and both cooked to perfection. I suspect a return may be likely if we can get past the calorific guilt ( deepened by creme brulee and chocolate mousse ). That... More

I have read good and bad reviews of this restaurant but myself and my wife enjoyed a fantastic evening in Al Hambra. We were at the end of a vacation that had started in Spain so we decided to end as we had started with some tapas. To be honest I was not sure what to expect but the food... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by one of the staff from Madinat Jumeirah and I was very happy with it. The staff were great and very attentive - my waiter Geoffrey was a lot of fun Wonderful Spanish octopus with sweet paprika and very tasty jam on croquettes - a lovely night

Visited Al Hambra on 11-Jul-14, with my family, as part of the half board deal at the Dar Al Masyaf hotel. The starter of prawns was perfect. The main course of Rib Eye steak was good, but both my son and I thought the sauce overpowered the steak a little, and was a bit too salty for our taste. However,... More

We enjoyed an excellent meal in Al Hambra - definitely one of the best Spanish restaurants in Dubai. Our waitress, Sandra, was very friendly and talked us through the menu, offering recommendations. All the tapas we ordered were delicious, in particular the patatas bravas, beef cheeks and chorizo, and served with fresh, crusty bread. My husband has to eat gluten-free... More

I went there with my wife recently. We are spanish, and normally we are aware that is not frequently that you get great spanish food out of Spain. That said, I have to say Al Hamra was extremely poor. Starting with the Patatas bravas that were fluffy (like boiled almost) with quite poor sauce, and finishing with the Beef Cheeks... More
