Frankie's is one of my favorite restaurants in Dubai and I am once again reviewing it because they have a new band. So worth a visit to check it out. In terms of the food I always go for the same thing (steak) and it was excellent as always. But more than anything this time the atmosphere was great. Very... More

After 2 weeks in the UAE we had our last meal at Frankie's on The Walk in JBR. The whole experience came up to the standard we expected, having been there many times during our 4 years residence in Dubai. The sea bass was extremely tasty as was the beef. Well worth a visit for that special occasion as the... More

We have just returned from a wonderful meal at Frankie's. After reading the negative reviews we almost did not go. However, the meal was fabulous. Lobster bisque for my husband and the house salad (duck, poached egg and cheese) for me followed by monk fish and angus steak. Unfortunately the lobster was not available. Portions were great; I am full... More

We went to Frankie's recently and I had been looking forward to it for a while. The food was fine, though on the heavy side, very cheesy soup and ravioli. We went during lunch time and the restaurant was completely empty and very dark whilst it was lovely and sunny out. Unfortunately it doesn't have an outside area, so I... More

Delicious food. Great service. Be sure to try the Burrata (it's the best burrata I've ever had, even in Italy).

After reading some of the review about Frankie's, I was a bit skeptical, but I decided to go and try the place anyway. Of course, if you hear bad things about a place you arrive with very low expectations, but, I was extremely surprise to have felt the complete opposite. From the time of arrival, the experience has been great.... More

Having once lived in Dubai I returned for a holiday and made sure a trip to Frankie's was on the agenda. Unfortunately the experience was not what I remembered from a few years ago (although piano man was on his night off, which left the atmosphere flat.) The staff were friendly enough and attentive although perhaps were trying to be... More
