Loved it

What an amazing place to visit for lunch! I was so impressed I went back 2 days later. It was fabulous. Stunning in fact. It's Dubai so expect the prices to be a little high but it's worth every dirham. Service was first class. Perfect visit!

One of the best lunch places value for money in Dubai. You can enjoy tasty food in the small restaurant of the catering business Marta's Workshop. The food, and in particular, the beef is excellent. If you live in Dubai, is worth trying it for lunch.

Just fantastic, combination of different textures. Flavored lunch in Dubai, price and quality are perfect combination.

I think every dubai-an should try it once. Small place, great food, chef tells you what you're eating.. Anyone who goes to Marta's would definitely recommend others. Note that the prices are a little on the higher end. Expect to pay somewhere around 100 each but worth it!

We had Marta cater our Christmas party for friends, the food was fabulous and service impeccable... nothing short of fantastic value. The wait staff were well presented and professional, and the bar man was awesome at whipping up something fun - accompanied by a great sense of humor. We also have lunch at Marta's Kitchen on a regular basis, waiting... More

I recently visited for a break from routine. having never eaten here, ( or heard of it) I was not sure what to expect. I visited with colleagues from work, and had a absolutely delicious starter and main course. the steak for main was well cooked , and fairly generous in portion. the starter was different, and was mainly ordered...

I tried Marta’s Workshop last week for the first time and completely loved it! Marta herself welcomed us and took our order. The food was very creative, full of flavor and for an incredible price! We had a miso soup with marinated prawns to die for, as well as the best fried calamari I have tried in a very long... More

Marta personally attends your table and explains her business concept and the food you've ordered. Always Happy to share recipes with you too. As does the chefs presenting their dishes. No waitresses here. Only does lunch - remember to Book early. This restaurant is popular for a reason. Although you can sit outside. We didn't it was 38 degrees. Enjoyed... More

Previous reviews have all stated that their expectations for this restaurant were high and in my opinion these expectations have surely been met. There was certainly no interference by the weather during our visit - we did though choose to sit indoors as it's not quite outdoor weather for lunch-time dining. We were greeted on entry by Marta herself, taking... More

I went to Marta's after reading so much good about it. Expectations were very high... As for its reviews. Unfortunately, it is not what we experienced. Place - Very small, much smaller than I could image. 3 small tables and a long counter with chairs (some of them broken). The outside was closed for obvious climate conditions (+42 C) but... More

Jorge C, Administrator at Marta's Workshop, responded to this review

We are saddened to know your experience wasn't as expected. Unfortunately last Sunday surprised us with a sandstorm that lasted all day and, as much as we cleaned, the sand kept coming in through the terrace's window. This is indeed unfortunate. Regarding the size of the restaurant, as the team explained, we are a catering company, composed by a group... More
