“Very pleasant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

This was an amazing evening on a little boat around Dubai with amazing views. The three courses were nice but very small. Wine was not included in our meal and the bill was a bit on the expensive side, but it's worth it for special occassions.

“Wonderful evening of class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

This was my Husbands and my second time on this wonderful evening cruise and it never disappoints, only this time I had my brother and his wife also with us. They raved on and on about the how wonderful the food was and how classy the boat is especially compared to all the others out on the river.
The food was simply exquisit and we were also delighted to meet a chef who came around at the end of the cruise. Our meal was the best I have had in Dubai. we were also lucky to witness a marriage proposal on this romantic voyage. thanks very much..

“27th June , great night !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Booked a table for my 50th birthday , and what a great choice , super views and a lovely atmosphere with smart ,friendly and courteous staff. The food was first class, presented with care and attention to detail with a short, detailed explanation from the knowledgeable staff.
The evening was topped off with a "Happy birthday" song and a cake to all those celebrating a birthday, which was very nice.
Had a photo taken prior to "casting off" would have liked a copy to remember the day but wasn't quite sure how to purchase one ? must have missed this.
Overall,,,,,,,, first class, well worth a visit .

“Wonderful time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

This was my second visit to Bateaux Dubai, I decided that it would be nice to do something a little bit more quiet and romantic for a change from all the louder places in Dubai. Although the view of the old creek is nothing compared to "New Dubai", it still has its charms, plus if you are looking to do something romantic you would not be looking out the window but at your date :)

I had a bit of disliking to my main course at the start, was not a fan of the lamb at all but they immediately decided to replace my main course with another 2 main course instead, which I though was extremely generous of them. The food was good, atmosphere was fantastic, classy, service good. Most importantly we had a great evening.
