Description: Al Hambra is traditional Spanish eatery with an unerring knack of making you feel at home. You'd be forgiven for thinking you're in a bustling Valencian taverna - but one glance at the view of the palm-fringed canals from the terrace will remind you of your romantic Gulf location. Take your pick from a parade of colourful plates, each filled with fresh, seasonal and sometimes surprising ingredients, all served in a casual family-style setting. Try the zingy gazpacho or chorizo frito, or work your way through a delicious pile of calamari rings, king prawns, or our popular chicken and rabbit paella. Locals and travellers alike come to Al Hambra to experience not just its extensive menu of authentic tapas and rustic regional Spanish cuisine, but for its lively atmosphere too. It's a perfect setting for al fresco dining or just to enjoy the city's best sangrias (served in generous clay pitchers).We are offering 20% (twenty percent) discount for spanish nationals.

“Amazing Spanish food, that is traditional with a modern twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Amazing food, chef Oscar is a very talented young chef who is creative with an inspiring menu, tapas is amazing, try the ribs and braised beef cheek it has the wow factor. This is one of my favourite restaurants when on holiday in Dubai, already counting the days down until my next booking in December.

“Fabulous Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Recently dined at Al Hambra with family and friends. You actually feel like you are in Spain. The atmosphere is very authentic and the food is certainly not disappointing.

The selection is vast and of an excellent standard. Everything wad beautifully presented and cooked to perfection.

The manager Max (sure he is Spanish) was extremely attentive and very passionate about the food.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening - good food, beautiful location and first class service.

“Excellent service and food in great setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

We dined here for the first time recently as part of our half board deal. The half board option is very flexible and we opted for 4 tapas each and a desert. We could not eat everything as was so much, all dishes were well presented and very tasty. Service by the manager Max was also excellent. We would dine here again. Note - for some reason this restaurant is on tripadvisor twice.
