We have always frequented this restaurant during their brunches, which are amazing. Nevertheless, this week I decided to invite a very large group of friends and family to this restaurant for iftar buffet. I coordinated with a manager called Amer, you cannot believe how much they went out of of their way to accommodate all of our needs. Furthermore, the... More

Tried the new Sofitel Hotel JBR for Iftar and was not impressed with the selection or the quality of the food offered at the French restaurant! One would expect a bit of variety for Iftar buffet and being a French cruise. I would say 80% of the dishes were Indian food. While I enjoyed a good Indian dinner, that wasn't... More

I've been several times to The hub/ AOC bar in the Soiftel JBR and wrote reviews. Yet again they deserve another!! A few changes have been made, which makes it a even more a great place to chill. From the new uniforms, change in lay-out, new drinks and a super new " AOC Brassiere" menu. This gives you a great... More

The Friday brunch buffet caters for everyone. There's such a wide selection of foods, such as pate, cheese, salad, bread, fish, duck, quiche, sushi, meat and a pork area. I wish I could have tried everything. The quality and presentation of the food was perfect and the service was very attentive. There was a slight misunderstanding when we arrived, the... More

Food is good but management is just awful. Our company had really bad experience last time when we've been confirmed that we would have to pay such and such amount of money as it was buffet but at the end bill was 200 AED higher. We needed to explain the same over and over to each next person from restaurant... More

We ate here on a Thursday evening for the Seafood Buffet. It was amazing! 320AED each for as many courses as you want and unlimited alcoholic drinks (including sparkling wine which was lush). The seafood selection was superb with hot and cold options available, a huge cheese area and also an entire dessert room. The service is impeccable with attentive... 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.
