We visited this charming restaurant whilst staying at the One and Only Palace. It is described as Indo-European food and the menu can be a bit daunting. We opted for one of the Nina's sharing experience options. We started with breads and pickles this was followed by 3 starters Chicken Tikka, Scallops and Spinach and Ricotta dumplings. Main course was... More

Myself and my husband visited Ninas based on a friends recommendation and it surpassed all expectations. The service was impeccable, a genuine and warm friendly service throughout with all waiters not only knowing every dish on the menu inside out, but also having a clear passion for the food they were serving. The food itself was outstanding! Absolutely delicious and... More

I was invited to this restaurant by friends staying at the One&Only and was initially surprised to find out it was Indian food as opposed to SE Asian which wouldn't have been a choice for me at all. WOW was I wrong, the food is just outstanding. From the initial mouthful, breads and chutneys as an appetiser to the starters... More

The ambience was great, the food choice and quality was very good. We tried the Experience menu which was superb, a Minot criticism was there is too much bread in the middle courses which bloats you out for the main course which is a shame as the food is superb but we had to leave a lot of it. Worth... More

We had the pleasure of eating at Nina on 2 occasions. The restaurant is beautifully appointed and located on the ground floor of the Arabian Court at the One and Only Royal Mirage. My wife and I opted for the half board meal. This comprised of Popadoms with pickle, 4 dishes for starters, which were a mix of vegetarian and... More

We had dinner recently at Nina after one of our friends recommendation and we were surprised with its beauty.. It's very romantic with nice background music.. Service was excellent.. We went for Experience menu as per the managers suggestions and we were surprised with the little twist with the Indian food. Butter chicken is to die for ..

We had the same incredible waiter and welcoming host as last year and they certainly make your meal marvellous. Obviously the food is incredible (The one and only Palace/ Arabian court never disappoint), however, the little details to your dining experience and the attentive nature of the waiter makes this unforgettable. It is far superior when compared to restaurants of... 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.
