Description: Overlooking Palm Island, and poised between lush gardens and golden sand, the Beach Bar & Grill is a refreshing experience. Affectionately called "The Beach" by resort staff, the mood by day is informal on the shaded terrace where guests enjoy impressive platters of freshly grilled seafood and bright salads. By night, "The Beach" dresses up with flickering candles and a warm glow as chefs serve lobster, tiger prawns, mixed kebabs and prime steaks.Chef's RecommendationCataplana of shellfish – clams, mussels, prawns, scallops and crabs with cooked beef chorzio, tomatoes, vegetables and fresh herbsAdditional InformationOpen Daily:12 noon - 3:30pm and 7pm - 11:30pmServing : Lunch & Dinner - à la carte(Set menu for groups larger than 9 people)Dress Code : smart casualEntertainment : Background CD Music"In respect of local culture and tradition, the evening dining dress code is casual yet elegant.

“Didn't feel welcome”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

I liked the food and the location is great. However, we went at the tail end of summer and thus the restaurant was empty. The hostess made a big issue that we didn't have a reservation despite the restaurants barren interior. When we were finally seated, she insisted on taking my mobile number. I don't want to be on mailing lists so I said no. She insisted that I needed to in case we left something behind. Again I said no and told her she could keep whatever I left behind.

After that my mood was ruined and I didn't really enjoy the meal.

Good food and good location ruined by bad service. Such a shame.

“Great view and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

We had an excellent meal. Good fish, cooked to perfection. Make a reservation for an outside table. The wine is worthy.

“Nice setting, but expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant is set in a very nice beachside location. The staff were very friendly.

We went here on recommendation of this site, and to all those who say it is reasonably priced need to meet the real world. It is not cheap. 2 mains, 2 drinks and 1 dessert just short of £100.

To us mere mortals that's a lot! But if you have a large wallet then by all means enjoy, as the food was nice, albeit on the small portion size

We had a lovely meal overlooking the beach. Again the service and food were outstanding. A must when staying at the resort.

“Excellent seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Ate here twice and found the experience very enjoyable on both occasions. Risotto is lovely as is the seafood platter. Very nice setting and service was just right - not over the top but just enough. Wine prices in line with most Dubai venues starting at around £30 per bottle for a drinkable Chardonnay or Shiraz.
