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.

We dined at El Chico for my birthday on 9th July (this wasn't mentioned to the staff). The two male waiters that served us were very attentive & would ensure we had full drinks at all times. The complimentary chips & salsa are freshly made and amazing, need the recipe for that salsa! We ate so much food and left... More

Nice enough decor and atmosphere in this restaurant on The Walk, but the meal I had (enchiladas) was a bit greasy and bland, but edible - certainly nothing special. No salad or vegetables, even as garnishings. I agree with other reviewers that the food seemed to be re-heated in a microwave. The portion size was reasonable, though.

Couple of weeks ago I went to the restaurant and basically just tried some food from a friends plate. I loved it. I also loved the looks of restaurant, restrooms, cleanness, staff is polite. Food was hot, delicious and good looking. Hoping to go back there as soon as possible.

The food menu and photos look attractive , but when try you notice that (food not fresh) they always warm up the food by microwave u can feel that by taste , chicken and meat seems cooked 1 day before all what they do is assembling the old cooked ingredient and warm it up by microwave

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

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.
