“A place to see Dubai from 52nd floor and enjoy your drinks”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Its worth to visit this place.It's in downtown Dubai, on 52nd floor in Marriott hotel. Enjoy the view the hotel can offer see Dubai in the night, the dazzling lights, the tall buildings, the palm etc at the same time enjoy your drinks. We visited the bar side cause it has a better view. Wide menu of drinks and cocktail. Good starters. Enquire with the hotel and visit during the happy hours time, it's mostly from 5-30 till 7-30 pm and has 50% off or 1 on 1 for drinks. Go early just before the sunset and book a table near the window. Snacks where good, drink menu had wide options about cocktails and wine. Overall a great place to go.

“Cracking Food, Drinks and Atmosphere!”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

We did the Friday brunch here a couple of months back. The food was fantastic, a great mix of sea food, steaks, buffet and deserts. The drinks selection was also brilliant and to cap it off, we had stunning views of Dubai. Awesome brunch - up there with the best of them.

“Great view in a nice and well priced restaurant”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Went for dinner in a group of four. Lovely view from both the bar and restaurant. Small but interesting menu that is reasonably priced and the food (we had rack of lamb, sea bass, red snapper & a sirloin) was tasty.
Great cocktail menu
Service was good, just a little slow ie their wasn’t enough wine glasses on the table and it took them around 10 mins to find a new one.
If you want a reasonably priced restaurant to take the parents to while on holiday, then this is a good option

“Lovely view!!!”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Overall is nice place with amazing view on Marina and Palm!! Place has 2 parts: restaurant and bar. Prices is affordable in both. But service is quite slowly:(( For those who smokes, it's allowed to smoke only in smoking area of bar, which is small and that's why crowd.

Celebrated my son's first wedding anniversary in the 52nd floor of the Marriot. Good selection of menu,food very tasty. Service was excellent.Gives you a 360 degree magnificient views of the city, able to enjoy the view of the marina also.Ask for a table by the windows. Good for a quiet romantic dinner with you loved ones.Value for money.
