I love going to the Buddha Bar early, at around 7pm, and getting some starters and drinks at the bar before heading down for dinner. all the beef dishes are excellent and the fish is beautiful.

Buddha Bar is one of my favorite lounge restaurants in Dubai. Located in the beautiful marina. It has dining area and beautiful, comfortable lounge with private sections nice for bigger groups. Food is fresh and delicious. Sushi is my favorite. Nice and chill music. Definitely high recommended place to visit.

I can say this restaurant has got one of the best selections of drinks specially wine that we normally find anywhere else. Food is just awesome and tasted very well. It has got great ambiance matching with the concept of venue. Staffs were friendly but not very attentive because may be it was busy. Pricing is comparatively little high.

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.
