Many Dubai Creek evening cruises are on Arabian-style dhow boats or sailing vessels. This dinner cruise is different, as it’s on a modern, glass-walled boat that allows for unobstructed views of the floodlit buildings you’ll pass by. The 4-course, waiter-served, gourmet dinner is prepared in the onboard kitchen, and there's live piano accompaniment during your meal. Alcoholic drinks are available for purchase, or you can upgrade to include house wines and beers.

A fantastic night. Glad we booked this and all the glowing 5 star reviews online are rightfully deserved. We've been to many 5 star restaurants in Asia and Dubai. Could not fault our evening on this charming little boat. The food, experience and the service in particular was remarkable. So often in Dubai it is 'yes sir' 'no sir' - these guys have character and it was a refreshing change of pace. The atmosphere was warm and friendly and it was mesmerising watching all the servers bring out 5 course meals to everyone. A big thank you to the team who went out of their way to cater to almost every request. The drinks didn't stop flowing and our young ones enjoyed their menu choice too. Would give 6 stars if we could. Excellent, will be back.

Booked this trip at the last minute, was pleasantly surprised with the food options and overall quality of the meal. Certainly worth the money. The service seemed overworked, we were forced to clear our own plates after the mains were served and refills of soft drinks took ten minutes or more. Beware of the photo sharks who'll clip you for 210 AED for the pictures they take when you board. You may be better off taking your own photos.

We enjoyed our bateaux dining experience.watching the sights of Dubai along the way.
The tables were nicely decorated, food good & the drinks plentiful.
We enjoyed going outside on the decks to enjoy the view & loved the fact that it was not crowded as different areas of the restaurant went up at different times.
We enjoyed the music from Hazel & Weng who are happy to sing any song requested & must give a special thank you to our waiter Jude.
A lovely magical experience.

Our favourite go to night out for special occasions. The quality of the food ,drink and service is outstanding. We do the all inclusive package with drink. From the welcome at the office ( sorry didn’t get the girls name ) to welcome onboard by Ivana then the service from Jude and Jade , everything was first class. Chef Ranjeev and his team did a super job, every course wonderful!
On the evening we dined there was also the added bonus of a first class entertainment duo, Sonobro Berbleu on piano and vocalist Maheya, beautiful. We always have our photo taken as somehow the photographs knock ten years off 😆. It was a quiet evening onboard but hopefully that was just because it was January! As well as the onboard delights you can see the beautiful creek and the views from on deck. We will be leaving Dubai soon but will always have wonderful memories of our Bateaux Dubai evenings .

There is absolutely nothing I could fault. Absolutely loved the experience. We got stuck in traffic but they waited for us! Boat was beautifully decorated. Pianist and live singer were amazing. Every course was beautifully presented and very tasty (I am a big foodie). Staff was attentive, friendly, knowledgeable. Will definitely go again any time I am back in Dubai and will recommend it to all my friends.

I made my own way to the place when it says with the package hotel pick up and drop off. So it wasn't a great start as I was mis sold about this. The employees were extremely rude and not helpful. It seemed like they were there just for show and did not want to help. We felt there was no respect for us there. Furthermore the camera lady who was suppose to take pictures im sorry to say can not take pictures and demanded 200dr. The pictures were not clear and poor quality pictures. Now moving on to what we were expecting to have 5 star the finest of the finest cuisine and it was anything but that. The food was served quickly and seemed rushed like they just wanted us gone. A CD was played over an over again with the same songs.Very dissatisfied with the package and feel lied too and would like some reimbursement.

I cannot recommend this dining and cruising experience too highly- I would encourage everyone to do it.

Everything from the time we stepped on to the boat was superb. The welcome and service at the table was perfect. Never too "present" but always available. The food is absolutely out of this world- every course and mouthful was a joy and it was lovely to meet the chef at the end of the cruise to be able to compliment him on his fabulous hard work.

There was plenty of time to walk out on deck and take photo's if you wished, but perhaps a little more guidance as to what we were sailing past would be of use.

Possibly the highlight of our entire trip!
