We ended here on a night out on possible 'bar crawl' @ the madinat, with some friends. The band was great, amazing atmosphere and drinks service was quick. Good times had by all

Beautiful restaurant with superb food and service but the only negative thing is a lot of people were smoking while we were eating and this was off putting. They do separate but if you want to see the singers you must sit in the smoking area ;(

We ate here on our half board dining plan while staying at the Mina A Salam, and it was the best meal of our holiday for me. If you like seafood you will love it in this restaurant. I chose the 3trio seafood, and it didn't disappoint. It consisted of lobster, scallops, and huge huge prawns, the desert was also... More

Great Supper Club with good music and a fantastic live band. On a Friday night it is buzzing with both diners and a crowd at the bar. The dancing starts early and we got a fabulous table central to the stage. Again, on the Jumeirah half board offer and I cannot promote the value and quality of this deal enough.... More

The food was fantastic but the service was very slow. The atmosphere was good with live music. Some customers were very rude to the staff.

Jambase was jumping when we visited on a Thursday evening. As always the band are great, the DJ too, the service excellent, the ambiance second to none. Ivan and all of the staff work hard to make the evening memorable. We are always at a loss to choose from the menu as it’s so substantial. It was so good we... More

We ate here on the free halfboard option and had a wonderful evening. We took the abra to the souk and were given directions but it was still hard to find. It's actually near the amphitheatre. Great choice of food, I had the crab cakes to start followed by the seafood trio which was delicious. It was half a small... More
