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

We had never previously dined here but what a lovely evening we had. Food was excellent and there was live entertainment...a singer and a nice addition was that there was a surprise birthday party on whilst we were there

Sat in the smoking side with many a local puffing away for the Gulf. But they left quickly and the AC started clearing up the air. Probably over ordered as the first course was truly huge. As they cleared it they asked if we had enjoyed our meal....but more was to follow. Suggestion-smaller courses please We will go back. Good... More

We first visited Frankie's a few years ago and had the most wonderful dinner with our then two young sons who were treated like kings. We really had huge expectations for our return visit tonight but alas the service and quality has dropped massively. The biggest problem that we had with our meal is that it just wasn't value for...

I went to Frankie's to have drinks and dinner. The first area, the bar, is really small, which is understandable given than Frankie's itself its not big. But it was way too crowded. I literally had a woman yelling behind me the drinks she wanted to the bartender. By the way, Steve is really good, fast and polite. Later I... More
