I expected things to be very expensive given the fact that a lot of people like to get a table outside in this area to see the fountains so I was surprised to discover that they had a 3 course lunch deal for... read more

This is a fantastic location and if you can get an outside table to see the Dubai Fountains in full flow, then it's definitely worth eating here. They don't take bookings except from 4pm on the same day, but it's worth trying to make sure you can get a good seat. The food, on the other hand, was pretty average.... More

Dear Rach, Thank you for your review albeit to my disappointment as one never likes when a guest leaves dissatisfied. Alcohol licence is not within our control and Outside is a smoking permitted area. As is the case with lots of places in Dubai, smoking and alcohol restrictions is a municipal and civil requirement and regulation and not a personal... More

Whilst on a recent trip to Dubai, we enjoyed an excellent meal at Urbano, overlooking the Dancing Fountains near the Burj Khalifa. Our waiter that evening was "Farasat" who was most charming and an extremely polite young man. We received such good service and he couldn't do enough for us. We would certainly recommend this restaurant and we wish him... More

The setting is spectacular overlooking the dancing fountains in front of the Burj Khalifa! The italian food is excellent and they give you large helpings. The price is reasonable as well and we were all (5 of us) very happy with our choice here. It is right below the Souk al Bahar sign.

If you are a steak lover you will love it here. The choice of cuts is good. It is cooked to perfection and the roast potatoes are delicious. The only thing you miss is a lovely glass of red wine to complete the meal!!!!!!

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
