“Great location, good choice of shops”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

One of the newer shopping malls in Abu Dhabi with a great variety of shops, an ice rink, a couple of cinemas and lots of restaurants and fast food outlets to cater for all tastes (a lot of them are eating places rather than restaurnts for a leisurely meal).
We enjoyed the Cafe de la Paix which offers continental cuisine with a French flavour - and if you take the elevator to the top, you will get to enjoy a stunning view of Abu Dhabi from the comfort of your table. There is also a seafood restaurant (we looked at it but we didn't eat there) with a huge variety of fresh fish served in a bright and airy location.
In the basement of the mall is the greatest Carrefour supermarket you can imagine - it sells everything you could possible need .... but you need a lot of time to navigate the vast space and the crowds.

“Great Shopping and Dining!”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Marina Mall really does have everything the female heart desires. From ZARA and Mango to Tiffany's and Chanel, its all there, which makes the shopping experience so complete. The same goes for food, as the variety is really big. I enjoyed taking the lift up the tower and having coffee in the café at the top with the panorama view of Abu Dhabi, but one must admit that the service isn't that great and that at 16 dirham for a can of coke, you are really paying for the view. I didn't visit the ice skating rink or the bowling alley but was really impressed with those two options. The only thing missing is a nice terrace restaurant overlooking the marina, which is very nice, but emiratis don't really like sitting outside so there's nothing like that there.

“Highly Recomended”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

If you can only make it to one mall in Abu Dhabi, let it be marina mall. It features a huge varitey of shops, and the Sky Tower offers far supieror views to the Burj Khalifa. Also, the Carrefour is wonderful.

“Not special”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Nice location close to the corniche, huge mall with a variety of all types of shops, a fancy restaurant on the top floor overlooking abu dhabi( smoking not allowed), however always over crowded, narrow paths, hard to find shops not very easy to navigate around you would find yourself going in circles I prefer the smaller, calmer Abu Dhabi Mall. A big Carrefour is available as well
