Our first visit turned out to be a very good experience. We were served a delicious dinner with great service. Arnie, our waiter, was helpful and did everything to make us feel at ease. The steaks are the best and the kid's menu was fantastic. A memorable experience enhanced by the good service.

The place was really nice. They put good music and the atmosphere there is amazing. The food was delicious and the staff, incredibly helpful. There was a lot of people that day so I guess that is way the service was a little bit slow.

This restaurant used to be the life and soul, always a number of birthday parties with loud singing and clapping from the waiters. . But this has most certainly changed. It's was so much quieter, emptier and less atmospheric on our last two visits which was a shame because the steaks actually were very good! We went with another couple... More

Hi Joanna, Thank you for sharing your feedback. We're working on it so that the venue would be more livelier compare to what we have before. There are actually some days where the venue is full and also it gets busy during brunch. Hope you at least enjoyed visiting us. We'd love to have you back at the Grand Grill... More

With a wide range of grilled food, I recommend you go hungry. The food is great and there is more than enough of everything. Staff are well trained and eager to make your visit memorable. Brunch price is reasonable and the house beverages more than acceptable. Make a booking in advance and for privacy, they have one private room available... More

My first visit to this restaurant and it was during Ramadan. For a restaurant in Dubai, I was extremely disappointed that the restaurant did not have dates for us to open our fast with. Being from SA, was a bit disappointed since the food did not have the really authentic South African tastes that I looked forward to.

I have been to this place many times. It is a South African steak restaurant and the quality is excellent. It is quite expensive compared to the UK but maybe nearer London type prices. They have a brunch here every Friday and it is good value for money but you have to book in advance, as it is very popular

we were looking for somewhere that was not showing the England v Wales match to have a quiet meal. We reserved a table for 20 minutes later with no problem.

A large group of friends attended the Friday brunch - went with the alcohol package which seemed like good value. Having been to a number of brunches in Dubai from the high price to average, this one was a bit disappointing for what we paid.

Just off the lobby of the Habtoor Grand is the aptly named Grand Grill Steakhouse. It is a fun and robust South African restaurant that’s all about the simple pleasures of a great steak and a good time with friends or a loved one.

Not the best steak in Dubai. But all of the food is great, the service is great, the prices are moe than reasonable, and you can generally always get a table. Well worth a visit.

Staying in The Marina

Neighborhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
