Good meal, great service, great value

Had dinner here one evening whilst on holiday. We used an Entertainer voucher which made it excellent value for money but it is cheap to eat here anyway (and free drink refills which saves a lot of money!!). Both the service and food were good and I would recommend.

I absolutely love this place. El Chico used to be my "cheat meal" place, when I was on a diet. Some times I would go there at least 2 times a month and every time it was great. Over the course of 2 years, I have been there more than 50 times and everyone who came with me has enjoyed... More

Everything about our meal here could be best described as just ok. Food was ok / staff ok, children running around and being allowed to stand on tables was not acceptable in my view (not the restaurants fault). I wouldn't return.

Good location in the middle of JBR, sunny design, a lot of healthy options. I ordered soup and chicken tacos. Very big portions, soup was wonderful, but chicken was spicy for me. Great thanks to Lady, she was so attentive and offered me another one without sauce. She safe my lunch. Looking forward to see you soon!

Chose this place randomly for lunch after day on the beach and liked it. Service was friendly (our waiter was John) and fast, and dishes were tasty. Fajitas were sizzling and had plenty of stuffings. Extra points for the free re-fills to our drinks!

Located on the JBR walk, only a couple of minutes off the beach front with very friendly and hospitable Hispanic staff... On ordering we were quoted 6-8 mins for our starters and 15-20 mins after we finished our starters for our mains, and they were spot on with their timings. Our starter (sharing platter) was nice, and the soft drinks... 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.
