“Nice choice in the DIFC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

I had a very nice dinner at Caramel last week. It was very dark inside the restaurant so I couldnt read the menu without my cell phone lighting the way. The menu seems standard, but the presentation is very original. I didn't think you could reinvent the caesar salad, but they surprised me in a good way. Overall the food was very nice and our server Francis was friendly and attentive. If you are in the DIFC, this is a great option. It's not well marked, so ask for directions.

“great food... terrible service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

Typical Dubai great food and bad service situation. Food is awesome and the atmosphere is a little pretentious but nice. The staff are just there for their looks and not their brains shall we say.

“Cozy , Comfortable and great food !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

It was my first time there ! We wanted to have a snack and decided to go to Caramel . The ambiance is and welcoming are warm. We went on a Monday so it was not to crowded. We had the Sushi rolls which absolutely great , perfect portion ,very nice taste and didnt take to long to bring them to the table . Service is also good the waiter was able to help us choosing an appropriate whine for the snack ! It is always nice to have knowledgeable staff ! Overall I love it would recommend it for anyone who is looking for a luxury quality lounge.

“Definitely best lounge in Dubai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

I have been going to Caramel for the past 3 years; it is by far one of the BEST lounges I have ever been to. Of course you have to reserve if you are planning on dinner plans especially during the weekends as it is very hard to find a table. I absolutely love their customer service (mainly because they remember their loyal customers).

The food is amazing; however it is very pricey, not somewhere you can go every weekend because you would definitely go broke.

Love the ambiance of the restaurant and would definitely recommend it.

“Not too bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

I went to Caramel with some friends for a late night supper. We ordered a few starters to share. I liked the spicy sweet sour prawns and the mini burgers. Other dishes (buffalo wings, chicken salad, large fries with chili, and chicken shawarma) were ok, but not outstanding. Maybe will try the main courses next time. Atmosphere as can be expected in the DIFC location on a weekend night - dimly lit (needed a flashlight to read the menu) with a DJ playing loud music. Service was good though.
