Description: The Courtyard, located in the centre of Manzil Downtown Dubai, has developed into one of the most popular Mediterranean restaurants and shisha lounges in Dubai. Combining Arabic tradition with global multicultural tastes. The Courtyard offers spectacular al fresco setting. Masterfully blending colours, designs, tastes, and sounds, The Courtyard experience is unique. It is especially known for its relaxed ambience, good food and flavourful shisha, and has earned a reputation for its laid-back atmosphere, ideal for enjoying the company of family and friends. Bon appetit, or as we say in Arabic, hani'an

The service here was superb as was the food with lots of choice to sample delicious arabic dishes. The atmosphere was fantastic, from the aromatic shisha pipes to the open courtyard. Try the lemon mint drink - very refreshing! Great restaurant.

I really like this place! My husband and I have been to this restaurant several times. The food is very good! Their Fattoush is by far my favorite!The service is also good. The only problem I would say is that the non-smoking section is very small so you'll end up smelling the smoke anyway. Also, sometimes people who are on the waiting list for the smoking section sit at a non-smoking table until their table is ready for them. The downside is that I've seen those people start smoking while they're still at the non-smoking section and have ignored the hostess when they were asked to wait 'till they move.

I am a regular at the courtyard, both by myself and when I have friends and family in town and I cannot fault it! The staff are excellent, hard working but always smiling and helpful and willing to go out of their way to be helpful. Oswald particularly is outstanding and provides excellent, fast and helpful service with a smile - always remembering what I like to drink!. I always recommend this place. The food and atmosphere are fabulous. Many thanks and I will continue to be a regular!

My Thursday night was spent in The Courtyard at Al Manzil Hotel with some lovely mezze, friends and a cold drink... After what was a very long week - my night was made by our incredibly friendly and attentive waiter Oswald! The best service I have ever had in Dubai after 5 years of living here. The perfect setting, with the perfect food and OUTSTANDING service made for a great Thursday night!
