“Excellent concept at high prices”
Reviewed August 7, 2012 via mobile

An exciting seafood restaurant located at the base of Burj Khalifa that is overlooking the dancing fountain. The fish is always ever so fresh, as are the lobsters, crab & squid. The deep frying & grill are done to perfection, but it comes at a price. The bill for two will easily reach AED 500-600 ($150), and that's without the lobster. Overall, this restaurant is pleasant, until they hand you the bill that is.

“Good fish, Spettacular position!”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

Good fish, Spettacular position!
good fish on a budget, you can choose directly from the bench, lobster shrimp scampi sea lion and a variety of local fish. We ordered several courses cooked on the grill. Initially they served pickles and cakes.
Spectacular location in front of the fountains of the Burj Khalifa.
Unfortunately we do not serve alcohol as the most public places in dubai
Not to be confused with sammach in jumeirah beach.

“Grilled fish and the best Lebanese Salads”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

the food is excellent. but when busy ie the evening the service is crap. So for food its best to go in the afternoon, not on the weekend.
Ask for the fish to be grilled "juicy" when you order, delicious Fatoush and Tabboueh, great hot potatoes and the calamari fried or grilled with provoncale sauce, prawns can be hit or miss. Superb value, great for kids and family.

“Fish is really good”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

As a very busy place you have to live with a poor service, but the food is compensating that. You choose fish as you would be at the fish market and get it cooked as you prefer. The atmosphere of the souk and the fountain water games outside make the ambiance special.
