“Exceptional service and value.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Thank you everyone at Rosewater for making our BCE anniversary meal on Friday 30th August such a memorable occasion! The staff at Rosewater went out of their way to accommodate our 18 strong group for the lunch buffet; They arranged our table in a beautiful spot overlooking the stunning pool and beach and even went to the trouble of presenting the group with a complimentary cake to recognize the occasion. Also a beautiful platter of cheesecake. Nothing was ever too much and the service was always timely and with a warm smile. The feedback from friends was very positive, the food was to a very high standard, the variety of food to eat was extensive; fresh pasta, soup, sushi, curries, salads, meat, fish, seafood dishes, cheese board, fruits, nuts, dates, bread and much more; the grill station was popular as was the desserts! But overwhelmingly every body commented highly on the exceptional service! A huge thank you to Rahul, Beatrice, Ganesh and the team for your professionalism and commitment to making our anniversary such a special occasion. You are wonderful Ambassadors for the Jumeirah Hotel. We will come again!

“Very nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

Good food, wide variety of dishes, attentive service. The only negative (and for me but probably not for anyone else) was I was a bit chilly in the restaurant, but I'm always cold.
