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.

To start with the price is average and not expensive for most of the food But some of their plates are over priced for nothing special Their Guacamole salad is Beyond Awesome as it's to be prepared fresh in front of your eyes Most of the food is great though the tacos are pretty small for the price and in...

The manager also came over to check everything was OK which was very nice of him. As its Ramadan, at the time of the fast being broken, we were given complimentary dates and... More

Great Mexican food, the best part for me was Guacamole made live in front of me, my friends and me are really fond of avocado and tortillas. Overall the food (Burritos, enchiladas infact all dishes that we ordered were amazing). Their hot sauces are the best, if you have a strong spice quotient. Wide range of vegetarian options.

Passing by and liking Mexican food we went here. The service was a little slow and they were not even busy. Saying that the food was good and portions generous. The guacamole was very nice and they make it at the table for you which is a nice touch. The place itself is nice although the AC was a little... 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.
