Great Mexican food in the heart of The Walk! They also delivery at record time, their prices aren't too bad either - would eat there or order from them again :)

Great Mexican Food at reasonable price particularly as take Entertainer voucher (BOGOF main course). Complimentary Nachos and salsa and free refills on drinks. Good location albeit opposite side of road to new shops bars and restaurants so easily missed. Well worth a visit.

El Chico in Riyadh and Dubai offer reliable Tex Mex food. The endless chips and salsa are dangerous and will fill you up if you are not careful. The burritos, enchiladas and fajitas are all well prepared and consistent in flavor. Pina Coladas are very tasty and mixed to perfect proportions. On our most recent trip the guacamole was sub...

El Chico is by far the best Mexican Restaurant in Dubai. The food is very delicious with many dishes to offer and very good customer service. The food is very reasonable price and great location for family or couples. The only downside is that there should be more AC units since it get very humid during the evenings during summer.

Went as 2 families, total of 9 of us. Service was really good, waiters very polite and the food was excellent. Really couldn't fault it. I ordered a brisket tortilla. It was really good. A little expensive but it's Dubai.

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.
