“Good French restaurant .”
Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

Last Friday my wife and I decided to have a breakfast in this restaurant. Honestly, we were very disappointed. I don't know what happened with their kitchen, but we were waiting for food more than 40 minutes. When we were about to leave, we asked the lady (she was not our waitress, she was wearing different uniform, the dress, and had a short hair) about our food, because we couldn't see our server for long time. She checked for us and told that the food is coming, and she joked that she can cook for us if we have no more time to wait. To tell the truth we stayed only because she was such a positive and kind. We had time after to observe while we were waiting that she was alone in the dress running on the balcony and the terrace was very busy (it was around 12 o'clock and we were sitting indoors), but still she had time to help us. When we received finally our food, we decided that it was worth to wait for. We had American breakfast and French toast, the food was really amazing. But if in the kitchen there are 3 persons working same like we saw 3-4 waiters, we can understand why we were waiting for so long. Anyway, we left happy from there. Thank you for that.

“Good place!”
Reviewed March 14, 2014 via mobile

We was for dinner at this place and enjoyed food and the place. Of course, all guests want to see the beautyfull fountains and therefore the place is, during show time, crowded. Never the less, I would like to mention the young Lady at the entrance who was extremly helpfull and nice. She suggested us to us to stay for the dinner and to have a look at the show. Thanks to here we had an excellent dinner and show. Again, food is good and when a place is full of guests, then there is a lot going on. The waiters try to do their best to make you happy. It was worth to stay and for sure I recommend the place and will come back! Congratulations to the team!

“Great place to see the fountains at night!”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

Really nice restaurant to go if you want to see the fountains at night.
The service is really nice (Our waiter, Essadik, took really good care of us!), the food is nice also.
I will definitely come back before I leave Dubai!

PS.:The only small problem is that we can't book a table, so if you come after 7pm, too bad, you'll wait.

Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

We were beautifully looked after by our waitress Alexandru. The food was lovely and the view of the Dubai fountains and the Burj Khalifa was superb. This was our second visit and we shall be back!
