Overall it was very disappointing and a waste of a precious evening out. To top it all off we got home stinking of cigarette smoke! That's right, the bar area is akin to a cigar shop which is more than a little disgusting for a restaurant. Actually, that day at work I mentioned I was off there that night and... More

Well if you want to eat or drink in a tired looking smoke stinking pub (because that's what it is now) and pay top dollar then go ahead. Whatever happened to the old Frankies with great staff, nice atmosphere and friendly experience. Eat at one of the cheap Italians down the road. I suspect its only the famous chef and... More

Frankies used to be one of our favorites. Living literally above Frankies we had diner here at least 2 times a week. It used to be a trendy restaurant. However die to lot of personnel changes the real atmosphere left with the previous staff. The interior needs an upgrade although the food is still good.

I rarely venture out to JBR for an evening meal based on the lack of alcohol based restaurants and walking in the heat! but we decided to try Frankie's Italian. On entering i was a little disappointed with the waft of smoke on entering the venue as the smoking area is at the front of the restaurant next to the... More

We stumbled across Frankies while trying to find somewhere to eat down on Jumeriah beach (hard to do when you're not looking for fast food or chain restaurants). We got in early so were first seated at the restaurant. We had a ravioli and spaghetti for main. The meal was good, nothing enormously impressive, especially considering it's part of the... More

My husband and I went to Frankie's 3 nights out of 4 while in Dubai. We sat at the bar each time and enjoyed more than a few glasses of wine, along with a wide array of appetizers - each unique and delicious. The service and food was excellent. Rory McLean on the piano was incredibly talented and entertaining. We... More

The first time i went to this restaurant I thought it was the best in Dubai. The last 3 times the word SHOCKING is an understatement. I will never go back. The service is terrible, the waitresses are severely undertrained and even added another zero to our bill to make it 8000AED instead of 800. Yes guys that is over... More
