First time we went here I gotta say we had the best pizza in Dubai (70+ dhs) for a medium size pizza. Excited, we went again but this time the crust was awful and the pizza was incredibly poor. Too bad, this would have been my weekly pizza spot.

We had lunch at Stefanos yesterday and were very unimpressed with our experience there. The food was very expensive (AED 68 for a prawn cocktail, which consisted of about 8 prawns, a bit of lettuce and some mayonnaise). We also ordered a salad, but it had no dressing on it - even after asking the waiter twice to bring us... More

I liked the place. In Dubai, it's a bit hard to find a place that stays up to 4 AM. And it serves SHISHA! So it was like heaven for me. The problem is that if the staff knew you're from their country, they'll get too friendly that they can be annoying.

It got better during the lunch and ended up pretty good, but why start out with a grumpy lady as waiter with an attitude...

Me and my sister came here for our last evening meal in Dubai as we wanted to look at the beautiful Marina close up. The whole view from the restaurant is lovely and very relaxed and quiet. We shared a garlic pizza bread for starters, which wasn't very garlic flavoured but still delicious! Then we had spaghetti bolognese for the... 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.
