“Disappointing”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

I am sorry, but the last time I was in Latitude I found it very disappointing:
The variety of food decreased significantly - It was hard to find something which is justifying the high price ... to make a long story short: I was unable to find anything delicious. Quality of the dishes were not better than average. I do not recommend that restaurant.

“A truly pleasant surprise”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

It was my husband's birthday on Thursday and we wanted to go somewhere with our almost 3-year old. So we were looking for some place to go for an early dinner and that wouldn't be fussy about little ones. My husband remembered going to Latitude a couple of years back for a work thing and remembered it being nice enough. We weren't expecting much at 6:30 on a Thursday night. We expected this to be a rather quiet experience with no one around and since I'd never heard of anyone having been there, I was expecting a rather non-descript food experience.
It was WONDERFUL.
Lots of people. Wonderful staff who were all very nice with the many children present. Very nice live music. And I was surprised at hoe nice all the food was! Nothing unusual or out of this world, but a good range and all very tasty. Unlike many buffets, there wasn't one item that got left on our plates.
We will definitely be back. Particularly if we're looking to have an early dinner with our little girl.
I will add that I don't know if their children's section is all that great (I honestly don't know but I had a quick look and it didn't seem terribly interesting) but our never goes for the kiddie areas anyway and this place was nice because it was roomy and she could move around without getting in people's ways.

We like to try new places each week and came across Latitude. We really liked the ambiance, the selection of food, and the entertainment. My wife in particular liked their salad. All in all a great place.

“Excellent Meal”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

My wife and I weren't hotel guests but were made to feel quite at home when we dropped in early one evening after a stroll along the Gulf shoreline.

We were lucky to strike a Spanish themed buffet night - and we love Spanish!

The variety of authentic Spanish food on offer was astounding and the quality was right up there. In my younger days I would have been there for the entire night sampling everything on offer, such was the freshness of the food.

The wine list had been modified to reflect the Spanish theme and was suitably varied to match with the Paella my wife and I started with. We couldn't fault the service but I guess that was to be expected at this address!

It gives me great pleasure to hear that you left from Latitude with the best impressions regarding our food quality and services. I understand that only one visit is not enough to try all our dishes but you are more than welcome to explore more of our Spanish specialities or even different type of cuisine from our international buffet.

We look forward to see you back in Latitude.

“Great place to dine with the family - Superb Staff”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

We always stay in Jumeirah properties we stayed for two weeks in August and had a fantastic time dining in Latitude for Breakfast and we chose to have dinner on most evenings we found the staff very helpful and whatever you asked for it was no problem for the restaurant, the buffet for breakfast provided different choices of food we have two daughters and they never complained once so we were on to a winner with Latitude. Sandeev a member of Latitude's dining team was always helpful and provided us with a memorable breakfast experience each morning. What more can I say.....you will not be disappointed with the Latitude Experience. I have read some reports on here which I strongly disagree with, this is a fantastic restaurant a superb atmosphere and nice staff.... and the Entertainment on certain nights was good a nice group provided everyone with nice music ....Thanks and I look forward to seeing you soon
