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.

Impressive service, food for the soul!

The title says it all. Immediately the waiter Bernard makes sure he knows my name and pronounces it correctly. So there is intimacy from the start and the ice is broken. Then his manners are those of a very polite and courteous friend, not a waiter who's just there doing his job. This makes us... read more

Great location, great service and a relaxed atmosphere overlooking the waterway. A good choice of both tapas and main meals. Live Spanish entertainment adds to the occasion. Reasonable VFM considering the location and the service was attentive but not over bearing. Well done Al Hambra! We will be back.

Wanted desperately to have a great time but didn't quiet hit the mark. Not sure what was wrong. Not enough staff possibly? Took advantage of the 700 gramme lobster.

We were greeted by a fabulous Argentinian lady, name escapes me. Our waiter, Ben (Bernard) I think, explained the menu very well, provided pashmina for the children and adjusted the fans. To suit. He is possibly the beat restaurant waiter who has served us during the holiday. Food was fantastic, and although we could have ordered more tapas plates with... More

Lovely setting, nice music, service ok.. such a shame that the food is not up to the expectations! The food was overall average to the best: the tapas were merely fast food, then we ordered paella sea food, we were recommended to get one for two but the quantity was not enough. It was also very salty and the rice... More

Staying in The Marina

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.
