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

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

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

I am so happy to have found this eatery in Dubai. The food is fresh and interesting. The eatery is intimate with excellent service. We enjoyed everything we tried here at a very reasonable price tag. Make sure to go earlier in the day if possible. When quantities run out, those dishes are done for the day. We missed out... More

The food could be compared to any of the fancy restaurants with hot shot chefs and the price is so affordable. I love going there and being surprised by what is on the menu that day. Simply amazing!

Not everyday do you find such an interesting and fresh concept in Dubai. The menus are never dull, the food is excellent, the juices are fantastic, the prices are more than fair and Marta is extremely helpful! I wish nothing but success to this restaurant, and please please please open a branch in DIC! Muchas gracias!

I visit this location at the begin of June . I travelled a lot for work in Spain and I can say you that real Spanish tapas are completely different. We'll it was a nice location with a descent service but if you want to eat authentic Spanish tapas , than should rather go to Spain. Not worth it

I visited Dubai at the end of June. Although i was just there for 3 days i decided to take a taxi and eat at Marta´s given the good reviews. The menu is limited and changes daily, yet so creative and tasty! The chefs take your order, cook and serve. Unfortunately Marta was away that day but the team took... More
