An impressive set up...wasn't crowded on a sat lunch! Just the perfect environment for a conversation. ..Steak was great and the service gentleman I believe the name was Beki seemed to enjoy what he did...Spot on! Looking through the decor you would feel a touch of Africa accompanied by photos representing well know celebrities on the other side...Definitely recommended!

I'm a big fan of the Grand Grill brunch and have experienced and recommended it many times over the last few years. However I think it must have a new chef / manager and after our experience on Friday, I doubt I'll be back. The starters consisted of approximately 8 salads (including the usual hoummous, fattoush etc), some finger sized... More

Extremely classy high end marble and glass hotel foyer. We walked over from the Ritz Carlton where all the staff smiled or made eye contact as they were passing. The difference even just crossing this hotel foyer a few times while attending the restaurant, was noticeable. The restaurant: African and the service level difference was even more noticable. However; the... More

Any South Africans amongst you, or as anyone with friends from SA will testify, “Friday is Braii Day.” Those same folk will no doubt also vehemently state that South Africans are (among other things) the greatest proponents of this sport/pastime/ritual in the world. The unashamed South Africanisms of the Grand Grill has ensured it will always have a special place... More

I really liked this place. The food was great and the service was excellent. I ordered a nice Shiraz from south Africa and it was very good. I had to choose the Sirloin from South Africa, and I was glad I did. The meat was very tender and juicy, I loved every bite of it. My husband had the rump... More

I have been to the Grand Grill many times and this is the first time I've come away disappointed. The first problem was they didn't have the wine I wanted. This is a big annoyance for me in any restaurant. Keeping your wine lists up to date is not difficult. My salmon gyoza starter was poor. One burnt, one undercooked.... More

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

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.
