Good food, even late at night

Got in late on a fligt and was searching for something to eat around my hotel. The place was one of the only ones still serving food at 1:30am. It is more a nightclub than a restaurant. There was a good live band still playing at that time, but just for eating it might be a little too loud.

This is not a cafe, but a loud and seedy bar!The "bouncer" couldn't explain why we had to pay AED 100 to get in - unless we were having dinner. And then couldnt provide change and tried to claim that the money had been returned when it hadnt - an attempt to rip us off even before we had stepped... More

I would like to keep it simple. It's not worth it especially when the staff are plain rude (especially with women), won't let the customer finish what they have to say, and not professional enough to admit their mistake. Yes, we are looking at you Max - whose supposed to be a "manager" but I guess didn't have various experience... More

My friend and I ventured into Rock Bottom based on the recommendation of our taxi driver, and we had a blast. I can't speak to the food, as we only drank and danced. Rock Bottom has a boisterous drink menu, a spirited dance floor, and attentive staff. The prices were fair, and we really enjoyed ourselves!

Terrible staff terrible service. Yes it's true it's good to hang here, dance, drink. But when we head here the bartender was so rude the hostess was so rude, ladies supposed to get 4 tickets for free drinks but she only issued 2.

Regular "Ladies Nights", good crowd, reasonable prices, friendly door staff. I really like the music too - the live band is great and then house music is played until 03:00AM.

Even the name rock bottom use to excite travellers before arriving in Dubai ! How times have changed ! It was always somewhere you could let your hair down and be assured of being in good company! I was shocked to see the amount of 'working girls' there last week ! Such a pity !

I recently went to Rockbottom Cafe Tecom for their monthly menu deal. This month it was a 'british' menu and the lamb was unbeliveable. There is a good selection and 3 courses for 99DHS including a drink is amazing value. Would definitely recommend eating here then you can party the night away with great a great band and awesome DJ.... More

The steaks are fantastic and atmosphere is a blast. Band, dance floor and great food! The only negative point is that the concierge indicated to us that it wasn't open until 7pm when actually it opens at 5pm. We walked on and took the elevator to find out it was open! Nevertheless, great spot for dinner or rockin all night!
