We popped in here to grab a coffee and snack on our first day in Dubai (jet lagged and overwhelmed), and had the most amazing impromptu lunch ever! The coffee was great, but the food...... We ordered a mixed plate of olives, selected from a vast range offered, some hummus, and vine leaves. Our friend, who was just going to have a piece of cheesecake (excellent, by the way), couldn't resist the mezze platter, and there was more than enough for the three of us. Don't succumb to the lure of the ubiquitous fast food chains just because you are out shopping for the day. This restaurant is well worth the time - and it's only one minute away from the world of shopping that awaits. Good value too!

Authentic Lebanese food in the terrace of Dubai Mall with spectacular views of the fountain. Make a booking to avoid disappointment, especially if you're keen on smoking sheesha. Menu items are quite pricey however dishes are delicious and service impeccable. I especially appreciated the el hand cleanser dispensed by the waiter at the end off the meal as well as the constant flow of puffy pity's. My fav on the terrace.

Was looking for a good Lebanese restaurant, and I was told to have a meal at Wafi Gourmet... Well at first sight, it does not look trendy or chill or whatsoever... But due to the excellent location... Just in front of the Dubai fountain... And my wish to ave a Lebanese meal... I decided to give it a try... Not bad at all... !! And the prices very very reasonable... Considering the location etc.
And what a view on the outside terrace..! The ambiance was ok... If you want to have good Arabian food and not want to spend a fortune and having an excellent view at the fountain... Just go to Wafi Gourmet..!!

The hot fresh breads came rolling with hummus dripping with olive oil and succulent fatoush; didnt knew too much of it had actually cramped up our tummy leaving a little space for the frills that follwed.

The seafood grill was the best than the meat grill. Grilled Fish, Squids and Prawns were the best I tasted so far in Dubai. The mutton kebabs were juicy and melted away. The lamb chop was burnt - a big disappointment.

The overall pricing is expensive. A bottle of mineral water (not the premium brands) is ridiculously priced at AED 17!.

My wife and I ate here before taking a nighttime trip up the Burj Khalifa. Overall, this place was great. Excellent food, reasonable prices and a lovely view of the fountain show at the Dubai Mall. Highly recommended.
