Restaurant is awesome; a bit more upscale than I expected. You'll definitely want to dress nicely. Although reasonably priced for Dubai, it was expensive by US standards. Food & service definitely made it worth it - the Poblano Pepper & Jalepeno Marg were awesome. Amazing view, fun & lively atmosphere. Don't miss this restaurant... You'll regret it!

We are regular visitors to LRM and have eaten at Maya before. On this occasion, we decided on a more relaxed evening in the bar area with a selection of snacks. One of our LRM friends works here and we were very touched to discover, upon arrival, that he had chosen to give up his own time to serve us-even... More

This was about the tenth time we've eaten here and I thought it was worth reviewing again. It's just so consistent and always a pleasure to visit. Yes it's expensive but so is anywhere in Dubai that serves alcohol with food. The staff are always great, the food and drinks are top class and the restaurant has always had a... More

We went to the bar for a drink before dinner - you get 3 complimentary drinks, wine or cocktails, for Ladies night. We had nachos and fajitas. Both were well-presented and service was efficient and not rushed. I can't say this was THE most fabulous, authentic Mexican but it was decent.

We did not expect a Mexican restaurant in this hotel complex. But this restaurant is worth visiting and there a nice relaxed atmosphere. We were with 5 persons ( incl. a girl of 3 years ) and the service was outstanding. Timing of food perfect.

We had brunch here yesterday. Great atmosphere, good music, excellent food and drinks. But best of all was the service - refreshingly different for Dubai. All staff were genuinely friendly and anticipated your needs well. Special shout out to Sophia who looked after us so well.

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.
