We had lunch today at the Bayt Al Wakeel, a restaurant recommended by our Big Bus walking tour guide. The portions were large and we split an appetizer and main course and enjoyed the food and view. The experience was made more pleasant by the cool breezes on the Creek.

Found this restaurant whilst visiting the old souk & in need of sustenance after bartering for holiday rubbish! Good selection of food & fresh juices. Mixed service - when good, very good; when bad, not so good!
Excellent position for watching the activity on the creek & people watching
Unlike another reviewer's comment, we saw lots of locals eating there.
Prices were reasonable for Dubai.

This place is very touristy as you will find only tourists eating there. Since tourist eat at this restaurant only once, the waiters don't care much if they like it there or not. Hence, the food is very mediocre, and the service is just horrible.
Let me just describe our situation so you know what I mean. We asked our waiter for recommendations, and all he said was to pick something from seafood section or meat section. We ordered lentil soup to start with, but when we finished eating it, no one bothered to take the empty soup bowls away. If you think they were taken when the main courses arrived, you're wrong - the waiters just pushed them aside on our table and placed the plates with the main courses in their places.
As for the food itself, the seafood platter was quite mediocre in quality - the crab was just way overcooked, shrimps were a little overcooked, fish filet and calamari were OK.
At the end of the meal, I asked for a check, and after 5 minute wait I had to go straight to the cashier to request it myself and pay for the meal right there. Obviously, I did not leave any tips as they not deserved.
The only good thing about the place is the view, but don't expect anything more.
