“Good view and value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

This was a pretty good place to eat. The location is very convenient, especially because the abra station was nearby. The view of the creek was also good and adds to the atmosphere. This restaurant is also very popular and there were few tables outside on the afternoon that we went. The food we had was ok. The tabouleh was quite dry though. The prices were reasonable so definitely worthwhile.

“Great local cuisine, drinks and atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

A must do for us when in Dubai. Though somewhat shabby and down market we love this place. Nice relaxed atmosphere, decent food at a very reasonable price. Great position. Loved the cocktails (non alchoholic), great humous, fruit platter, etc.... very nice place to relax and enjoy the view and the air. Friendly, quick service. Would only consider going if you can get an outside table though!! Worth waiting for.

“Fabulous views, good food, nice drinks, great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

We loved having a snack and a drink at this place on the terrace overlooking the creek. Loved the Instanbuli kebabs and the drinks (all non alcoholic). The fruit platter was great as was the hommous and the tabouli. It was great pretending we were in Venice on a hot evening watching all the people walk past behind us (tourists and locals) and all the boats going by on the Creek. Loved all the cocktails. Lots of locals, lots of people smoking water pipes (which we didn't). Pretty wonderful atmosphere, though it's down market and very 'inclusive' rather than 'exclusive'. We will definitely go back. Good service, nice staff, very reasonable prices. Great local atmosphere. Furniture is a bit worse for wear but we didn't care. It's an all day service kind of place and a wonderful place to relax.
