Service is less than average it’s taken 40mins so far as I’m writing this just for a all day breakfast and eggs on toast. 45 mins and it’s here now lucky it’s not busy. The food is very average for such a nice golf course....Don’t recommend eating here during the day if you have somewhere to go.More

Good horrible and staff so slow….. I am a member of the club and to be honest I’ve been to 261 probably 20 times in the last 6months. But this time I can’t tolerate it anymore. The food is really bad (oweful steak!) and the...service is a disaster. Staff is incompetent and slow. GoodbyeMore

Wanted something different and tried 261 for a change.. Good variety on the menu to choose from and enough to cater for all tastes.. Food was served within a timely manner and we were not disappointed.. I opted for the pie and mash, my wife...went for the Guinness pie and my daughter the BBQ Chicken wrap.. All dishes were extremely flavorsome and good size portions..More

The food is good and the ambience is great. There is ample space and sitting outdoors in March is bliss.

We have been coming to the Els Club since it opened and today we visited the 261 and we were utterly disgusted with the service. After being seated we waited around 15 mins for our drinks order to be taken then another 20mins for them...to come back for our food order. When placing our order the staff member was so rude, replying to our questions with only a shrug and a grunt. After further waiting for our drinks we then asked to speak to the manager to complain about the service he did not seem to bothered about what we had experienced and was no help at all. We decided to leave. Very disappointed and will never go back!!!!!!More

The location is great and the food itself is nice, but the experience was certainly spoiled by the level of service which was quite frankly terrible. We went with friends and the waiters were clearly struggling even though it wasn’t that busy, yet the place...was quite obviously understaffed for a weekend. We reminded the waiters three times that we were still waiting for one of the beverages for one of our group, and still it didn’t arrive. He was so disappointed. Having eaten at quite a few gold clubs in Dubai this was hands down the poorest level of service we have received. One of the waiters was also really quite really rude and was evidently having a bad day. We did complain about the poor level of service but it was almost shrugged off with no attempt to really apologize or try to understand what the issue was or has been. The management seriously need to do some additional training here and need to staff appropriately at weekends as I’m sure we won’t be the only ones who will be reluctant to return after our experience today.More

I had breakfast at 261 with my wife as we are here on vacation. We were recommended the restaurant for the incredible views of the golf course and we were certainly not disappointed. The waiter who looked after us recommended the Egg White Scramble and...the Eggs Benedict which were both incredible. We will certainly be back on our next visit to Dubai!More
