Creek-facing resto in Festival City with nice interiors. Has good outdoor as well as indoor seating space. It was pretty empty when we went and that's understandable as the place sells gourmet burgers of sorts which are priced above average. The burgers we had were worth the price and the serving staff was reasonably professional. Was a relatively peaceful pleasant experience at this place and you can spend a longer time with your family or friends here.

It's also right in the middle of one of the lesser used entrance/exits of the mall. So if you're scared of being found out (for whatever reason) then find another resto. Otherwise bring on those indoor and outdoor selfies!

Nice cafe with very good service and staff however Access via robinson could be a struggle. Teas and cocktails taste delicious. Recommended for great waterfront view as well.

Saw good reviews about this place, went to the Festival City branch and was literally empty, on a weekend @ 16h

At first, decoration and seating is better then expected, nice staff and good views.

The burgers are good, bread ++ and cheese the thing to recall. The meat was nothing special, just a piece of meet cooked to the chef’s taste (we were not asked), by the way the chef was the server and the cashier... actually she was alone! the fries were yummy and the house mayo even better... I’m not sure gonna visit again this branch, but will surely give the City Walk branch a visit, have a feeling could be working better.

If you want to prank someone, take them to this place.
Stale bread.
Dry patty.
Tasteless cheese.
Soggy chips/fries.
Horrible iced tea.
The food was an absolute nightmare.
The staff was friendly, though.
Not worth AED200 ($55) for two.

Big Fernand is a french burger place offering burgers topped with raw milk cheese and pattys cooked to your liking.

This particular branch is located in Dubai Festival City, right by the waterfront. It is surrounded by huge bushes, thus providing a good barrier between the restaurant and the crowds watching the imagine show. It is located inside Robinson's.

The outdoor seating of this branch is super cute. Really good for date nights. Wooden flooring and exteriors along with the dim yellow lighting really takes the ambience up a notch. The barrier of bushes gives gives you just enough privacy.

I ordered the Charles along with a side of fries seasoned with paprika and garlic and Cheesesticks. The sauce in the burger itself was quite delicious but the patty was a bit too chewy and not juicy enough. The bun was also very flavoursome and the raw milk cheese is something you need to develop a flavour for. The fries were too bad and barely seasoned. We didn't even end up finishing them all. The cheesesticks were just average and a bit too over cooked.

We ended up paying almost AED50 per person inspite of using the Entertainer. Definitely not worth the price.

Food- 3/5
Service- 3/5
Ambience- 4/5
Value for Money- 2/5
