fish restaurant with character

The setting makes this restaurant worth a visit, as it is located on a Dhow boat, typical of this gulf area and with an history. The fish dishes are reasonably good with decent prices but the location really makes this restaurant stands out from the others.

Our friends who live in Dubai took us here on a recent visit. We would never have found it or dared to try it ourselves. Restaurant is a permanently docked boat in waterway.. we... More

The prices were reasonable, but the food was so-so. We ordered greek salad and hommos. Both were delicious. For main course we had steak, which was a disappointment. It was a thin piece of meat which was cooked too hard. It looked like something we would get from a fast food place back home. When this is said, maybe they... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant during our weekend in Sharjah and we were pleased we did. The views of the waterfront are excellent and the decor and atmosphere made it for us. The food is fine - typically Lebanese with prices slightly higher than the High Street. The fruit cocktail was disappointing- overall worth a visit!

the boat is probably located at the best place in sharjah. amazing view of jazeera park and sharjah gold souq. you also get a good view of the sharjah skyline. the food is reasonably priced and tastes just fine.

Very disappointing experience especially after all I heard about it. It has a very nice scenic view over looking the lagoon and the amazing Majaz waterfront, but the service and the quality of the food is below expectations. I do not think I would visit again unfortunately.

Fine food, nothing special. Just the typical middle east food: lots of grilled meat, bread and some veggies.

This 2 story Dhow is permanently docked abutting a park area, which is enjoyed by families. It was well patronized - the local custom is to eat later in the evening, and it serves good Middle eastern food which was well presented, very reasonably priced, and very tasty. The food was promptly delivered, and while we waited we were given... More
