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.

Good Food Average service

We had pork crackling, paella and steak. Started with several tapas. Quality of the food was outstanding. Service could be better, they started to take away food before finishing it. Wine very expensive.

I have been here several times in the last few years but now won't be going back. The service was so slow and the food order simply didn't arrive in any reasonable time. Also it didn't arrive at one time so many of our party didn't have food when others did.

Went to celebrate my friend's birthday. Amazing food and ambiance. I have tried some other spanish restaurants but this one is great!! Attentive staff and delicious sangrias. We even got a birthday cake that took us by surprise!! It's the perfect place to spend a lovely diner. Definitely I will come back.

First class venue in a great location with wonderful food and attentive staff. To be presented with an anniversary cake at the end of our fantastic meal was a really nice touch and completely unexpected. As a romantic venue for those who love the idea of Tapas, rather than the enormous main courses on offer in many places in Dubai,... More

Always one of my preferred restaurants in Dubai. The location is stunning, as part of the Al Qasr Hotel, ensure you get a table outside, if the temperature is not too hot. They have heater if necessary. The views are great, typical of Dubai, but with the waterways in front of the restaurant, yet away from the crowds. The typical... More
