“Honest Good Food "Pub Style" at Great Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

The Wharf in Madinat Jumeirah has always been one of my favourite restaurants in Dubai, and recent menu changes and simplification in style have raised this to one of the best places for dinner in Dubai. A great simple but effective menu, good honest hearty food, casual and relaxed and yet classy and chic, this restaurant is great for a relaxed dinner, ideally outdoors in the cooler months. Good prices, superb attentive service, great location. I especially love their version of "bangers and mash" with the trio of sausages (pork no less). Superb restauarnt where the service standards have also improved considerably in the past year. Bravo to The Wharf.

“Great food at affordable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

Jumeirah madinat jumeriah have many amazing restaurants one of which is The Wharf. Must book at night and parked the car and then take an abras (6minutes ruse on the man made canal) to and from restaurant/bar.

We been told it famous for rack of lamb (130 dhs), pan seared fillet of salmon (120dhs) and Angus steak (180-220dhs sirloin, rib eye and fillet). it signature dish is Slow braised short ribs (130 dhs). Each night they have a special dish eg wed is steam pot, thu is mussels. Outside at night is amazing view with the man made canal/lagoon and the back dropped is the hotel which built to resemble an old Middle East fort. With the lighting effects the view is very romantic. The setting inside the restaurant is your traditional pub and vineyard style.

The meal is started with local bread serve some sort of mustard, omg the mustard style paste is just "fully sick" oh wow yummy. It sort of like a cross between pate and English mustard with Caramelized onion all mixed into one. It is free and all you can bread.

Absolutely love the food and the view but best of all, for 5 person the total bill was 550 dhs.
