I ate here twice during my stay at the Crowne Plaza (excluding breakfast). The first time was great - we sat outside with a view of the Dubai skyline. Outside they also had a live band, a BBQ, and even a flatbread lady, making fresh flatbreads (the cheese one came highly recommended). You can have a BBQ with as much... More

A great place for an outdoors dinner on a pleasant night, probably any time between November and early March. The food was tasty but the menus and buffet varieties can be a bit better, but then again the best attraction of the place is the outside setting, the magical sea and skyline views and the wonderful live Arabic music.

This restaurant is part of crown plaza. We ate here for breakfast (amazing! See my review of the hotel). The Arabic BBQ in the evening was also amazing. Selection and quality of food is brilliant. Entertainment and setting also fantastic. Definitely worth a visit.
