The food here is always delightful, and the deli-style arrangement means you can grab a bottle of 12 year old balsamic vinegar while you are there! I would definitely recommend.

I regularly go to Cafe Bateel and absolutely love it. The salads, drinks and the breads are great.
They serve olive and and a lovely date balsamic vinegar with the bread.

Only down side is that the service is always a bit slow... Try the farro salad!

During our stay with friends we have visited Cafe Bateel on Marina Walk twice so far and have to say the salads are fantastic. The cafe with seating outdoors was recommended by our friends and we were not disappointed.

Bateel has a new seasonal menu, so I just tried their new lamb tenderloin. Cafe Bateel Media City delivered. WOW - I am flashed. It is amazing. Usually I dont like lamb, but this is so perfect that i fell in love with it. It comes with nice beans and potato gratin ... it is so fantastic, that i felt i should comment here. This place is worth a visit, it will be hard to eat somewhere else afterwards.

We like the Arabic coffee here. Not Turkish coffee. Arabic or gulf Arab countries to be specific. And to get into details, this is Saudi style coffee.

Dates selection and quality is amazing.

The food is very very good for a cafe.

There are several branches. The nicest I'd the one at Dubai Marina. Right on the waterfront. Perfect for people watching.

Like this review if you benefited. Thanks.
