I live in Old Town Island just off Emaar Boulevard, which has number of choices for restaurants, cafes and shisha. I must say that since I began coming to Palace Cafe it's been my restaurant/cafe of choice for either a relaxing afternoon with a book, a quick bite or a full evening with friends. The customer service is great, with friendly staff and a great ambience, which has a lot to do with the efforts of the manager. The shisha is perfect. As a regular I'm always made to feel extremely welcome, which keeps me coming back!

Since I am living in the neighborhood, I am a regular in the Palace Cafe, visiting a couple of times a week. I have checked out quite a lot of restaurants and cafes in Dubai, but this one is definitely my favorite. The seating options are very comfortable and it's a great spot to watch the cars go by on Emaar Boulevard. The service is excellent, especially Jason is a great host and makes sure you're well taken care of. Shisha is also great, and they have a wide variety of food available.
