We treated ourselves to a breakfast out to start the week and were not disappointed. Eggs and turkey bacon, yoghurt and granola and excellent coffee to boot. Slightly less attentive service at 7.30am to 11am on a weekend but overall recommended :-)

After walking quite a while along the beach area then the Marina area we decided it was time for a break, we were just in front of this lovely cafe and sat at a small table overlooking the boats on the Marina, we ordered a sandwich each, mine was a prawn avocado wrap which was delicious, we were so intrigued...

I decided to treat myself to coffee and cake in Café Bateel on the last Friday of my stay in Dubai. The café has increased in size over the years and now does savoury items as well as sweet. It being a busy Friday afternoon, and being on my own, I didn't want to take up a table outside. I... More

The complementary bread basket given on arrival is very appreciated because the bread is particularly good. We chose to eat three of their quiche but we were disappointed it was too soft (mostly the crust). Perhaps not the best choice on their menu. Otherwise the location is nice with a view over the marina.

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.
