This is a gem in Dubai. A catering kitchen that is open for lunch. Amazing food, amazing service and totally value for money. The chef will go to your table to ask if everything is alright. A must go.

What an amazing place to visit for lunch! I was so impressed I went back 2 days later. It was fabulous. Stunning in fact. It's Dubai so expect the prices to be a little high but it's worth every dirham. Service was first class. Perfect visit!

One of the best lunch places value for money in Dubai. You can enjoy tasty food in the small restaurant of the catering business Marta's Workshop. The food, and in particular, the beef is excellent. If you live in Dubai, is worth trying it for lunch.

I think every dubai-an should try it once. Small place, great food, chef tells you what you're eating.. Anyone who goes to Marta's would definitely recommend others. Note that the prices are a little on the higher end. Expect to pay somewhere around 100 each but worth it!

We had Marta cater our Christmas party for friends, the food was fabulous and service impeccable... nothing short of fantastic value. The wait staff were well presented and professional, and the bar man was awesome at whipping up something fun - accompanied by a great sense of humor. We also have lunch at Marta's Kitchen on a regular basis, waiting... More

I tried Marta’s Workshop last week for the first time and completely loved it! Marta herself welcomed us and took our order. The food was very creative, full of flavor and for an incredible price!

Previous reviews have all stated that their expectations for this restaurant were high and in my opinion these expectations have surely been met. There was certainly no interference by the weather during our visit - we did though choose to sit indoors as it's not quite outdoor weather for lunch-time dining. We were greeted on entry by Marta herself, taking... More
